Out with the old and in with the new

These Words of Wisdom were sent to me this morning and I thought it would be great to share them as we leave this year and look forward to the new year.

  *Prayer is not a "spare wheel" that you pull out when in  trouble, but it is a "steering wheel"  that directs the right path throughout.

* So why is a car's windshield is so large and the rear view mirror is so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, look ahead and move on.

* Friendship is like a book. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.

*All things in life are temporary.  If going well, enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong, don't worry, they can't last long either.

* Old Friends are gold, new friends are diamonds! If you get a diamond, don't forget your gold.  To hold a diamond, you always need a base of gold!

* Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, "Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end!

* When God solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when God doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.

* A blind person asked St. Anthony: "Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?" He replied: "Yes, losing your vision!"

* When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them.  When you are safe and happy, remember that someone has also prayed for you.

*Worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles, it takes away today's peace. 

As we head into the new year my wish for all of you is for GOOD HEALTH (take it from me, if you lose it you realize how important it is).  PEACE in your heart (for this will give you what you need to face the challenges ahead). HOPE (for without hope we have no future). JOY (It is so important to find joy in every day.  My mom reminds me quite often to never let anyone steal my joy.  You shouldn't either). CONFIDENCE to face all the challenges that come your way (many times it just takes us to believe in ourselves to conquer all that is thrown our way, not a miracle). BELLY LAUGHS (they are good for the soul and quite contagious!). Finally I wish you LOVE (the love of many; your spouse, your children, your parents, your friends, the love of a stranger to give random acts of kindness (and your ability to recognize that love and embrace it) and love of yourself (for if we cannot love ourselves, how can we fully love others?)

Happy New Year my friends, I love you!!
