Calves and Common Sense
Ralph Waldo Emerson, the famous 19th century
poet and essayist, was out one day trying to
get a calf into the barn. "But he made the
common mistake of thinking only of what he
wanted: Emerson pushed and his son pulled..
But the calf stiffened his legs and
stubbornly refused to leave the pasture.
"The Irish housemaid saw their predicament.
She couldn't write essays and books; but on
this occasion at least, she had more horse
sense, or calf sense, than Emerson. She put
her maternal finger in the calf's mouth,
and let the calf suck her finger as she
gently led him into the barn."
The lesson is simple but profound: The best
way to influence others is by considering
their desires, not just your own.
-- Dale Carnegie

There's A Hole In My Sidewalk:
In Five Easy Chapters
I walk down a street and there's a big hole.
I don't see it and fall into it. It's dark
and hopeless and it takes me a long time to
find my way out. It's not my fault!
I walk down the same street. There's a big
hole and I can see it, but I still fall in.
It's dark and hopeless and it takes me a long
time to get out. It's still not my fault.
I walk down a street. There's a big hole.
I can see it, but I still fall in. It's
become a habit. But I keep my eyes open
and get out immediately. It is my fault.
I walk down a street. There's a big hole.
And I walk around it.
I walk down a different street.

in fear of losing it.
GOLDEN RULES FOR A PEACEFUL LIFE
1. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less.
No one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.
Disappointments are like road humps, they slow you down a bit but you enjoy the smooth road afterwards.
Don't stay on the humps too long. Move on !
When you feel down because you didn't get what you want, just sit tight and be happy, because God has thought of something better to give you.
When something happens to you, good or bad, consider what it means. There's a purpose to life's events, to teach you how to laugh more or not to cry too hard.
You can't make someone love you, all you can do is be someone who can be loved, the rest is up to the person to realize your worth.
It's better to lose your pride to the one you love, than to lose the one you love because of pride.
We spend too much time looking for the right person to love or finding fault with those we already love, when instead we should be perfecting the love we give.
Never abandon an old friend. You will never find one who can take his/her place. Friendship is like wine, it gets better as it grows older.

Eleanor Roosevelt wrote
Many people will walk in and out of your life,
But only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.
To handle yourself, use your head;
To handle others, use your heart.
Anger is only one letter short of danger.
If someone betrays you once, it is his fault;
If he betrays you twice, it is your fault
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
He who loses money, loses much;
He, who loses a friend, loses much more;
He, who loses faith, loses all.
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature,
But beautiful old people are works of art.
Learn from the mistakes of others.
You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.
Friends, you and me....You brought another
friend....And then there were 3.
We started our group.... Our circle of friends....
And like that circle....There is no beginning or end..
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift.
MY FAVORITE PLACE TO PRAY
My garden is a peaceful place
Where I can go to slow my pace.
There while digging in the sod
I seek direction from my God.
No problem is too big or small;
He listens to them all, one and all.
I always know I'll find him there
To comfort me and hear my prayer.
I often run a little late,
But lovingly He always waits
To share my joy and hear my cares
In my lovely place of prayer.
We talk a lot, my God and I;
He lets me laugh, He lets me cry.
And when I don't know where to start,
It's then He listens to my heart.

Don't worry when you think you don't have a gift that seems big and showy. A smile can change someone's life in the moment you smile at them.. and that is a great gift indeed. A helping hand when someone is sad and feels like they have nothing left... is a great gift beyond description. Being thoughtful and kind with words and gestures do more good than you will ever know. Look to yourself and what you give.. and you will find your gift.

At the smell of the bait the fish will come from the deep water . By the movement of the water you will know that a big fish has come .
