Thoughts on a Blank Piece of Paper

 

Staring at a blank paper and hoping for inspiration,

Is like staring at the snow and hoping for a flower.

 

Quoting scripture is easy; applying it to life is difficult.

Walking in the Spirit is not a role in a play.

 

Intellectual knowledge of God will die with the body,

Heartfelt knowledge of God will live forever.

 

Religion is ritualistic repetition,

Faith is one unknown step after another.

 

Thinking you will get to heaven without Jesus

Is like trying to entering a building with no door.

The Lord is My Shepherd

“I shall not want.” The 23rd Psalm continues to speak of the ways the Shepherd takes care of His own. If you read no farther than the 1st verse, you would know the totality of the Shepherds care. “I shall not want” (have need of anything…need not fear anything… need not despair nor feel alone or abandoned…). With the Shepherd, you have all you will ever need.

Thinking Out Loud

~~~

Once, I ordered from the right side of the menu…

the waitress brought me $4.98.

 ~

It is said that age brings wisdom…wonder if I will live that long.

 ~

If you stay busy doing something all your life…

how will you qualify to do nothing when you retire?

 ~

My house floors have squeaks…I like it…covers up mine.

 ~

I could have done better in school…if “F” meant “fantastic.”

 ~

My ex-wife supported just about everything I did…except breathing.

 ~

In parochial school, the corner was my friend…spent a lot of time there.

 ~

It was second grade before I realized giant penguins were also called nuns.

 ~

As a Catholic boy, my confessions were always the same…

guess I was a repeat offender.

 ~

When I was little, I talked to myself…everyone thought it was cute;

now that I’m old, when I talk to myself…everyone thinks I’m crazy.

 ~

When your little and lose your temper…”Oh! How cute”

when your old and lose your temper…”Oh! How senile”

 ~

When your little, you have no name…you’re a cutie…sweetie pie…dearie

When you get old, nothing changes…you’re a honey…sweetie…dearie

~

Smile today…it’ll make someone feel good…

they’ll also wonder what your up to.

Keep the Faith

†  † 

Faith is Trusting and Believing. God’s ways and thoughts are not ours (Isaiah 55: 8-9), yet we continue to try to understand Him. Understand that He loves us so much that He suffered and died on a wooden cross. He asks us to trust, not question: to believe, not doubt. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Keep the Faith!
