Straight Paths or Sad, Curvy Ones?
"The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding." ... Proverbs 4:7
Brenda wrote another interesting post (what a superb writer!) this week:
What You Would Have Done Differently
... and I found the majority of her wildly fascinating comment box replies super-sad and downright tragic. They brought three things to mind:
1.) "Choose your life's mate carefully. From this one decision will come 90 percent of all your happiness or misery." ... H. Jackson Brown Jr.
2.) "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths." ... Proverbs 3:5,6
3.) Whatever it takes, know God. And know who He created you to be.
I'll tell ya ... It absolutely scares me to tiny pieces to even think of 'leaning on my own understanding" and doing what I want, what I think and what I feel rather than asking God what I should want/think/feel.
Especially now after reading all those life stories. Oh dear. Life lived according to one's own head and feelings can be so very sad.
Make wise choices. We only get this one short life down here.
(My cute little blueberry plants bought last year.)
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." ... Jeremiah 29:11
"You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands." ... Isaiah 55:12
Oh my goodness! Can you imagine finding this underneath your house??
Did you know that you can eat fresh pineapple to help relieve aches and pains?
I adore fresh pineapple. I buy it, cored, every week.
And here are 9 more foods which can take away the achiness.
