Mother Teresa

19 Nov

“People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; forgive them anyway. If you are kind, People may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you’ve got anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway”

-Mother Teresa

God anwser you on the day you crash

30 Jul

Psalm 20 (msg)

God anwser you on the day you crash,

The name God-of-Jacobput you out of harms reach,

Send reinforcementsforom Holy Hill,

Dispatch from Zion fresh supplies,

Exclaim over your offerings,

Celebrate your sacrifices,

Give you what yoru heart desires,

Accomplish your plans.

When you win, we plan yo raise the roof

and lead the parade with our banners.

May all your wishes come true!

That clinches it- help’s coming,

an anwser’s on the way,

everything’s going to work out.

See those people polishing their chariots,

and those others grooming their horses?

but were making garlandsfor GOD our God.

The chariots will rust,

the horses pull up lame-

and we’ll be on our feet, standing tall.

Make the king a winner, God

The day we call, give us an anwser.

“I ran my mouth off a bit too much, oh what did I say?
Well you just laughed it off, it was all OK”

“The way of a fool seems right to him,

but a wise man listens to advice.

A fool shows his annoyance at once,

but a prudent man overlooks an insult.”

-Proverbs 12:15-16

 

Unrelated but I like them both.

The proverbs one speaks to me so much. Straight to the heart. Ouch. I can be so sensitive sometimes. In my sensitivity am I being prideful? I never thought the two could be the same. Do I want to be a fool or listen to correction? I could get over myself and my “annoyances” then maybe I’d learn something.

 

Ow.

Can I quote myself?

If i know how something works it allows me to manipulate it better

Regina Spektor

21 Nov

“This is how it works
You’re young until you’re not
You love until you don’t
You try until you can’t
You laugh until you cry
You cry until you laugh
And everyone must breathe
Until their dying breath”

Old Prayer

5 Nov

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
