Sayings to Ponder

It is more difficult by far to mend a heart that has
 been broken by angry words than it would be to
 hold them back unspoken.

The golden rule of friendship is to listen to others 
as you would have them listen to you.
                                              David Augsburger

Only one life, twill soon be past. Only what's done
for Christ will last.

Two men trod the way of life; the first, with down -
cast eye; the second, with an eager face uplifted
to the sky. He who gaged upon the ground said,
"Life is dull and gray" But he who looked into
 the stars went singing on his way.

God loaned me a life and I must pay Him back 
a portion of each day in loving service; I must
give a part of every hour I live in thoughtful, kindly
deeds to others who are my sisters and my brothers.
                                                 Grace Noll Browell

The cross is God's plus sign to a needy world.

Another person's secret is like another person's
money; you are not as careful with it as you are
with your own.                      
                                                 E. W. Howe

Best things to give
To your friend - loyalty;
To your enemy - forgiveness;
To your boss - service;
To a child - a good example;
To your parents - gratitude and devotion;
To your spouse - love and faithfulness;
To all men - charity;
To God - your life.

Some more cherished sayings from my Great Grandparents.
