Apples of gold in frames of silver

 


Sometimes when we hang out with our elders we get a chuckle.  We used to love spending time with our MOM. 

There was one time in particular when Mom sucked all the chocolate off some nuts we had bought, and then she put the nuts back in the bag.  Julie and I did not know she was doing that and continued to eat the chocolate free nuts....  After a bit, our Mom started laughing so hard she couldn't walk or talk.  😳 Imagine our surprise when she told us.

The elderly can be a joy.

They can also share great wisdom with us if we will listen.  

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in frames of silver.

Proverbs 25:11

That priceless golden wisdom that is passed down from generation to generation, framed in silver as a remembrance that we share
with our children and their children.... 

Yes, the young have much to offer and we will listen and take what is good, but do not neglect the precious wisdom from the aged who have seen it all before.

JOY

Mandisa - Overcomer (Lyric Video)

Calm down about things that don't matter,

Picking your battles wisely is a life quality that everyone should adopt. Ask your self:      why does this bother me      what will happen if I don't respond      will my opinion change the outcome      can I find a positive way to express the way this makes me I feel       When serious things do happen (and they will) over the top responses will only serve to hurt you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and  you will alienate people after time........... Discipline your thought life!   Don't allow every minor irritation make you irrational! Try focusing on  the positive and meditating on the blessings of God and watch the small problems fade from sight......... Philipians 4:8 Finally, brethren.....whatsoever things that are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
