If you make people think

If you make people think they’re thinking, they’ll love you;
but if you really make them think, they might not.

When chickens stop quarreling over their food they often find there is enough for all and I wonder whether the same might not be true with the human race. –Don Marquis

Making the effort lets us see

Trying to learn the basic tones, the rhythm and the depth is a new experience.

But after making the effort giving a try there comes a vent which gives relief.

Walking on the journey lets us see how things work.

When life is bitter, say thank you and grow.”

“It’s not hard to decide what you want your life to be about.
What’s hard is learning what to give up in order to have it.”

“Sometimes the happiest ending isn’t the one for which you were longing,
it is something you absolutely cannot see from wherever you might be.”

“When lives fall apart, brokenness can allow many good
things to enter…and one of them is the presence of God.”

“My life is a story about…what God can do in a human heart.”

You cannot should have done anything

“To understand how to get to where you are going, you must first know where you are – and it helps to understand how you got to where you are today.  My most exasperating driving experience is hearing my co-piloting wife, gazing at the map, say, ‘You should have turned left three streets back’ – to which I invariable reply, ‘Unless you are piloting a time machine, you cannot should have done anything on planet earth.’  Reality harshly teaches us that we can only proceed from where we are now…” –Michael Rood
