Thursday Thirteen...

Thirteen things about people and the world around me.

1. Understanding is the begining of knowledge. To implement knowledge is the begining of wisdom.
2. If you gain understanding you limit the space where judgmental ignorance can flourish.
3. To love and be love is the greatest thing on earth. Love never fails
4. There is a purpose to everything under the heavens. That also means there is a reason for everything. Understand the reasons and gain great freedoms.
5. Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, began last night and will continue until Friday evening. It is a time of reflection, one of the most serious holidays in the Jewish calendar, and marks the beginning of the High Holy Days, the period between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, which comes 10 days later. Here is a post about that
6. Today is the start of Ramadan in the Islamic world. Here are some facts about Ramadan and the fasting ritual, from Sandier Pastures.
7. Hurt people hurt people, it is no wonder...They need healing not hatred.
8. Our hearts are basically good. It is in falling into the temptations that over power us, we loose our battle.
9. We are in an epic battle between the forces of good (God the Creator) and evil ( the Fallen, Once Angle, Lucifer). Good (God) will prevail. Our battle is not against flesh and blood (each other)!
10.Children really do want to please their parents.
11. All things really do work out for the good to those who love God and who are called according to His purposes, but that does not mean we may not face some tremendous battles with casualties all around us.
12. That most Parents really do want to give their children the best possible lives.
13. We have so very much to learn from each other, through out our entire lives.

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
