Just Some Thoughts to Revisit!

Last year I received an email with some beautiful thoughts that I want to pass along once again. It has been a very busy time here at CMD and so I decided to do a little revisit of a previous post just to let you know I am still here but swamped. I hope you enjoy the meanings of these little food for thoughts.

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

Do you know why 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 few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.

All things in life are temporary. If going well enjoy it, they will not last forever.
If going wrong don't worry, they can't last long either.

Old friends are like Gold! New friends are Diamonds! 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, sweetheart, 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 asked St. Anthony: "Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?" He 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.

Just a short 6 days till spring. Thank you for dropping by. I hope to visit you shortly when I can come up for air! LOL
Smiles and blessing be yours,
Celestina Marie

All things in life are temporary. If going well enjoy it, they will not last forever.
If going wrong don't worry, they can't last long either. ..loved this..I think of, do not look at the things that are seen but unseen. for the things that are seen are temporary, but the things that are unseen are eternal!

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

A blind person asked St. Anthony: "Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?" He replied: "Yes, losing your vision." ..WOW...amen to this one too.

Oh thank you so much for such a beautiful post.

Hello Celestina Marie,
Thank you for stopping by today. I enjoyed your quotes and sentiments so much! I am always on the look-out for poems and such like this for Bible study. People really enjoy quotes! Thank you for sharing them with us.
I just read your story about your childhood home and it was very touching. I shed a few tears too. I'm glad you grew up in such a loving home and you have such wonderful memories. Your loving upbringing obviously helped mould you into the gentle and caring person you are today! Happy Easter, sweet lady.
