Uplifting Thoughts


Prayer is not a "spare wheel"
that you pull out when in  trouble; 
it is a"steering wheel" that directs
the right path throughout.


A car's windshield is so large
& the rear view mirror is so small
because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE.
So, look ahead and move on.


Friendship is like a book--
it takes years to write, but
only a few seconds to burn.


All things in life are temporary.
When things go well, rejoice-- that will not last forever.
When things go wrong, don't worry--
that can't last long, either.
Old friends are gold;  new friends are diamond!
If you get a diamond, don't forget the gold,
because to hold a diamond,
you always need a base of gold!


Often, when we lose hope and think this is the end,
GOD smiles from above and says,
"Relax, my child-- it's just a bend, not the end!"

When GOD solves your problems,
you have faith in HIS abilities;
when GOD doesn't solve your problems
HE has faith in your abilities.
A blind person once asked his pastor:
"Can there be anything  worse than losing your eye sight?"
His pastor replied: "Yes, losing your vision!"
When you pray for others,
God listens to you and blesses them.
And, sometimes, when you are safe and happy,
remember that someone has prayed for you.

WORRYING does not take away tomorrow's TROUBLES;
it takes away today's PEACE.
