A Recipe to Live By:

Blend one cup of love and one half cup of kindness, add alternately in small portions one cup of appreciation and three cups of pleasant companionship into which has bee sifted three teaspoons of deserving praise.
Flavor with one teaspoon carefully chosen advice.
Lightly fold in one cup of cheerfulness to which has been added a pinch of sorrow.  Pour with tender care into small clean hearts and let bake until well matured.  Turn out on the surface of society.  Humbly invoke God’s blessing and it will serve mankind.

Why does everyone want to be in the front of the bus, the rear of the church, and the middle of the road?
======================================================
Often those of whom we speak least on earth are best known in heaven.

======================================================
Bibles that are coming apart usually belong to people who are not.

======================================================
God seldom speaks to man ….  while man, himself, is talking.

It is nice to be important, but it is more important to be nice!

Cleaning Cupboards

Today while clearing out cupboards
With neat, housecleaning art
I suddenly decided
To clean the cupboards of my heart.

I threw out criticism
To the trash pile – to the fire!
I put in appreciation
And worthwhile thoughts that will inspire.

I threw out condemnation,
Which says, you’re wrong, I’m right!
I put in consideration
For all folks, brown, black and white.

Yes, out went complaining,
Grumbling about trivial things
I put in smiles and laughter,
To ease the tensions each day brings.

Friends, let’s all clean our cupboards,
With help from God above
Throw out pride and hatred, too
Put in humility and love.

Nothing annoys a woman more than to have friends drop in unexpectedly and find the house looking as it usually does.

When God measures men He puts the tape around the heart and not the head.

Any housewife, no matter how large the family, can get some time alone, by doing the dishes.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

A good cook always adds a pinch of love.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Getting rid of ourselves is like peeling and onion, layer by layer, and it is often a tearful process.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Seven prayerless days makes one weak.
