I wish it wasn’t true, but time is valuable and it flows away like the water in a river.   Confucius

It’s hard to get a Thank You these days, so wise up and quit expecting gratitude when you do an act of kindness.  Just do what’s in your heart, and don’t waste your time expecting anything from us movers and shakers of today, which is The New Norm.  The very reason what we do now, we must do From The Heart. 

The World don’t care about good deeds, and God said, anyone, that Love the World is an Enemy of His.  James 4:4   Now that we know this, maybe we won’t get our feelings hurt, or our panties in a wad.  Who knows what may happen when we give without fanfare?

But when you give to charity, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. So that your deeds of charity may be in secret: and your Father Who sees in secret will reward openly.   Matthew 6: 3-5

What that mean is we won’t have to toot our own horn for doing what is right, plus we may need more than one small deed to get a blessing.  You think?

I wish it wasn’t true, but what we want is often hard to acquire.  Perhaps that’s because it may be worth having?  On the other hand, if it’s not worth the effort, it seems as if it just fall into our laps, and then all the praises go up.

When doing something, anything, almost everything worthwhile is difficult in the beginning.  “Woe is me;” especially if I start reluctantly.  My theory, for the most part, is; life is simple, it’s just not easy.  Can get an Amen?

Easy and hard things are what life is made of; enjoy some, get over others, and move on.  It’s Something to Think About! 

In everyday life we understand most can stand adversity to a degree.  And if we live long enough we will eventually learn there is always some type of drama, trauma, etc… It’s a part of our makeup but; If you want to test a man’s character, give him power.   Abraham Lincoln

I wish it wasn’t true, but we can narrow power down to two well-known sources.  Unfortunately only one of them is good.  One source of power is obtained by fear of punishment; the other by acts of love.

FYI: Knowledge gives us power, and character respect.  Mastering others take strength, but mastering yourself is true power.   Lao Tzu

I wish it wasn’t true, but we are defective.  However, we can gain from that flaw by acquiring wisdom through experience, which can sometimes be bittersweet, but it is what it is, and I’m a Witness to that.

When we spend too much time seeking to discover our wrongs; although this is a good thing, we have a tendency to overlook most of the good; often we are overly critical of ourselves.  I wish that wasn’t true.

Until you stop breathing, there’s more right with you than wrong with you.   Jon Kabat-Zin

With that being said, I believe success make people hate you.  I wish that wasn’t true.  But, we can pray that we are what we hope we seem to be to ourselves…Today you are You, that is truer than true.  There is no one alive who is your than You.  Dr. Seuss

Lord, Thank You for giving us a right mind and body to go about your work.  In Jesus name, we pray.  Amen

    When I initially commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get four emails
    with the same comment. Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!

    I believe everything published made a great deal of sense.
    However, consider this, what if you wrote a catchier title?
    I ain’t suggesting your content is not solid, however what if you added a headline
    to possibly grab a person’s attention? I mean I WISH IT WASN’
    T TRUE, BUT… | Norvie L. Cherry is kinda plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page
    and watch how they create news titles to get people interested.

    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab people excited about everything’ve written. Just my
    opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.
