I've been going through some of the many journals I've kept, some going back as far as 1954.  While reading them I came across part of a letter I'd sent somebody. I'm posting it, hoping its contents may uplift somebody, encourage somebody, or  comfort somebody. 

FROM SILENCE- FROM SOLITUDE



1- My life is a barren desert, Lord; flood it with rivers of living water so it
   will flourish as a garden.

2- Lord, you have changed my speech--softened my words,
   changed my heart--softened my touch,
   changed my mind--gentled my thoughts towards others,
   and changed me into sombody I can like.


3- Faith not exercised is where doubt comes from.

4 -Never look back to yesterday. It served its purpose: was only intended to be used once. If you must reflect upon it, reflect upon memories that are good, inspirational, taught you something, or helped somebody. If there are none, leave yesterday alone.


5--Reading is a wasted effort if what you learned is not applied to life.

6- Nobody can change your attitude; YOU are in control of that
.

7-
We think we know ourselves until we see our reflection in somebody else's eyes.

8- We always believe what we tell ourselves.

9-Friendship disappears when abused, leaving the fool to stand alone.


10- Put others before yourself; love is like that.


11- Thank you for your hand upon my shoulder, Lord,
       every day, and  every night.   

12- Perfection, aside from the LORD, is when heart and mind together,
      walk a straight line.

13- Unwavering faith can handle anything!


14- If you lack faith pray for trials; you'll soon learn to respect those
      who now possess what you hunger for.

15-Success comes when we  recognize how much we yet have to learn-
     then learn it.  

16- Allow your children laughter; there is enough sadness in
      their tomorrows.

17- It isn't easy to forgive.  If  you are struggling with this today, just
       say the words and ask God to help you mean what you say.
 


 HAVE AN AWESOME DAY. REMEMBER, LIFE IS SHORT, SO CREATE A BEAUTIFUL MEMORY
 TODAY.
