Words to Live By

"May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the LORD. " Psalm 104:34

Relax, throw open the windows of our stuffy little souls and let the cooling breezes of a better world sweep through! What will all our petty worries amount to fifty years from now? Rejoice in the old simplicities which no man can take away—like spring and green woods and mocking-birds. And, better still, rest our souls in the goodness of God and His amazing grace. –V. Havner

I worked for a man that blew off my mistakes by saying, "A hundred years from now we'll never know the difference." This spring is a good time to rejoice in old simplicities -- those eggs in the nest built in a door wreath, a single crocus pushing through the barren ground, and the feet of a new grandson. I think I need to begin an "old simplicities to rejoice in" list.

Reminds me of one of my mother's sayings. (She had lots of them.) One I remember was "you'll never know the difference a hundred years from now." My goodness, after I typed that I looked at Pamela's comment above about the 100 year thing. It must be true. LOL
Thank you for sharing.
