God of Wisdom,

Over the years I have collected many aphorisms and wise sayings which encapsulate pithy wise observations.

While they are not essentially religious, nevertheless I believe that many of them could be seen as sparks from the fire
of the Holy Spirit.

I meditate on them here.

you can tell a lot about a person by the way he or she handles four things: a rainy day, the elderly, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

Making a "living" is not the same thing
as making a "life."

Life sometimes gives you a second chance.

You shouldn't go through life
with a catcher's mitt on both hands.
You need to be able to throw something back sometimes.

If you pursue happiness, it may elude you.
But, if you focus on your family,
your friends, the needs of others,
your work, and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you.

Whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

Even when I have pains,
I don't have to be one.

Every day, you should reach out
and touch someone.

People love that human touch -- holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I still have a lot to learn.
