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)
