Wise words

“God will not look you over for medals,
degrees or diplomas
but for scars.”

Elbert Hubbard

(robin redbreast /Julie Cook / 2017)

A dear friend recently shared this bit of wisdom with me…
and what is wisdom if it is not in turn shared once again….

“That the birds of worry and care fly over your head,
this you cannot change,
but that they build nests in your hair,
this you can prevent.”

Thank you Paul…..

Do not be anxious about anything,
but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7

    Those words from Philippians have been my strength since I was in high school and memorized them then, Very difficult to follow at times but what a grace when we are able to turn our cares over to the Lord! Blessings on your day.

  3. Amen. Lean into his peace, He’s got the whole world in His hands.

    I really believe all the tears, all the scars are like an offering to Him. He collects our tears in a bottle and our scars are a bit like His, evidence of having risked it all for love.

    It all reminds me of my nephew, he never opened his toys,but preferred to keep them pristine in the box, because they’re all going to be collector’s items someday and worth money. Well yes, but that’s the saddest thing ever, a toy that never got to be a toy! A proper toy should be all dirty and missing an ear, evidence that it actually lived and was loved.

  4. Thank goodness. I’ve got plenty of those.

  5. Needed this one today. All month really. Thanks.

  6. Wisdom indeed. Great photo! 🙂 ❤

    No need to worry. Not enough hair for a nest.
