07/26/14 Weekend Grif.Net – Storms Come

[After a week of silly jokes, I need to settle down my mind to the realities
of life. Storms come. Winds of adversity blow. Wash your mind out with some
of these pithy truths. I did.]

“When you are going through difficult times and wonder where God is,
remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test.”

“To have God in our life doesn’t mean sailing in a boat with no storms. It
means having a boat that no storm can sink.”

“I am thankful for all those who said NO. Because of them I did it myself.”
(Albert Einstein)

“If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.”
(Lucius Seneca)

“A bend in the road is not the end of the road … unless you fail to make
the turn.”

“I ask not for a lighter burden, but for broader shoulders.”
(Jewish Proverb)

“A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.”
(William G.T. Shedd)

“Speak little. Hold to your own nature. A strong wind does not blow all
morning, a cloudburst does not last all day. The wind and rain are from
Heaven and earth and even these do not last long; how much less so the
efforts of man?”
(Lao Tzu, Tao-Te King)

“Only when it is dark enough can you can see the stars.”
[Ralph Waldo Emerson]

“Sometimes when you think the storm is coming to rain on your parade, it’s
actually there to water your garden.”
(Rob Hill)
