 Our Refuge and Strength

(Psalm 46)

+ + +

.

Lord we can come to You
And find shelter from the storms of life
For You are always present to help
To protect us from trouble and strife

.

 

Though the earth vanish from sight
And the mountains are carried away
Yet will we not be afraid
For You are our hope and stay

.

 

If the waters begin to roar
And there is trouble all about
There is One who will help us
When we are filled with doubt

.

 

God walks in our midst
To comfort and to guide
Our enemies will be defeated
If in Him we will abide

.

 

Come now and behold
What for us the Lord has done
How He destroyed the heathen nations
Before the going down of the sun

.

 

He made the wars to cease
In the land that to us He did give

The Wisdom of Will Rogers 

==========================
.

Don’t squat with your spurs on.

.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes
from bad judgment.

.

Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier ‘n puttin’
it back in.

.

If you’re ridin’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now
and then to make sure it’s still there.

.

If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try
orderin’ somebody else’s dog around.

.

After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he
started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and
shot him…….The moral: When you’re full of bull, keep your
mouth shut.

.

Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

.

There’s two theories to arguin’ with a woman.
Neither one works.

.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop
diggin’.

.

Never slap a man who’s chewin’ tobacco.

.

It don’t take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.

.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

.

When you give a lesson in meanness to a critter or a person,
don’t be surprised if they learn their lesson.

.

When you’re throwin’ your weight around, be ready to have it

During a visit to the mental asylum, I asked the director how do you determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

“Well”, he said, “we fill up a bathtub then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask him/her to empty the tub.”

“Oh, I understand”, I said.

“A normal person would use the bucket because

A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and a four-year old grandson. The old man’s hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered.

..

The family ate together nightly at the dinner table. But the elderly grandfather’s shaky hands and failing sight made eating rather difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon o­nto the floor. When he grasped the glass often milk spilled o­n the tablecloth.

.. 

The son and daughter-in-law became irritated with the mess. “We must do something about grandfather,” said the son. I’ve had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food o­n the floor. So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner.

..

 There, grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner at the dinner table. Since grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl. Sometimes when the family glanced in grandfather’s direction, he had a tear in his eye as he ate alone. Still, the o­nly words the couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food.

..

 The four-year-old watched it all in silence.

..

One evening before supper, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps o­n the floor. He asked the child sweetly, “What are you making?” Just as sweetly, the boy responded, “Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and mama to eat your food from when I grow up.” The four-year-old smiled and went back to work.

..

 The words so struck the parents that they were speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken, both knew what must be done. That evening the husband took grandfather’s hand and gently led him back to the family table.

..

For the remainder of his days he ate every meal with the family. And for some reason, neither

When I was a toddler, someone gave me a little Tea Set as a gift, and it was one of my favorite toys. My father was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought him a little cup of tea, which was just water, of course.

.

After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home. My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch his little Princess bring him a cup of tea, because it was, ‘Just the cutest thing!’

.

My Mom waited, and sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy.

.

She watches him drink it up and then says,

HOW TO STAY YOUNG

.


1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay ‘them.’

.

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’ And the devil’s name is Alzheimer’s.

.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

.

6. The tears happen.Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

.

7. Surround yourself with what you love , whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what
