The Tides of Providence


Poet: Patience Strong


It's not what you gather, but what you sow,

That gives the heart a warming glow.

It's not what you get, but what you give,

Decides the kind of life you live.


It's not what you have,

But what you spare.

It's not what you take,

But what you share

That pays the greater dividend

And makes you richer in the end.


It's not what you spend upon yourself

Or hide away upon a shelf,

That brings a blessing for the day.

It's what you scatter by the way.


A wasted effort it may seem.

But what you cast upon the stream

Comes back to you recompense

Upon the tides of providence.


Life's Tug Of War


by Author Unknown


Life can seem ungrateful and not always kind.

Life can pull at your heartstrings and play with your mind.

Life can be blissful and happy and free.

Life can put beauty in the things that you see.

Life can place challenges right at your feet.

Life can make good of the hardships we meet.

Life can overwhelm you and make your head spin.

Life can reward those determined to win.

Life can be hurtful and not always fair.

Life can surround you with people who care.

Life clearly does offer its ups and its downs.

Life's days can bring you both smiles and frowns.

Life teaches us to take the good with the bad.

Life is a mixture of happy and sad.


SO...


Take the life that you have and give it your best.

Think positive be happy let God do the rest.

Take the challenges that life has laid at your feet.

Take pride and be thankful for each one you meet.

To yourself give forgiveness if you stumble and fall.

Take each day that is dealt you and give it your all..

Take the love that you're given and return it with care.

Have faith that when needed it will always be there.

Take time to find the beauty in the things that you see.

Take life's simple pleasures let them set your heart free.

The idea here is simply to even the score.

As you are met and faced with Life's Tug of War.


Tools To Help


by Catherine Pulsifer


No matter the person,

Or the obsession,

A bag of tools,

Is given with lesson.


Ever person,

Who walks with life,

Needs some tools,

To help get through strife.


Tools to help get through,

Conflicts and addictions.

Tools come in handy,

And help with restrictions.


With conflict the best tool,

Is to find a resolution.

With problems the best tool,

Is to find the solution.


With your unhappiness the best tool,

Is to change your situation.

With someone else's unhappiness,

Help them see their blessings.


With feelings of exhaustion,

Is to stop and take care.

When you lose faith,

Take time to say a little prayer.


With every issue,

You have a helping hand.

That will lead you the right way,

Just let God be part of the plan .


Who Shall We Help Today


Poet: John McLeod, © 1982



Who shall we help today, my friends,

Who shall we help today?

A poor-man passing in the road

A word to ease his way?

A kindly thought, a friendly deed

A smile so freely given?

These are the treasures all may give

These are the keys to heaven!


Who shall we help today, my friends,

Who shall we help today?

A sad soul in distress perhaps?

Kneel with that soul and pray;

Show him the love our Father showed

In the way His son was given:

These are the gifts all have to give,

These are the keys to heaven!


Who shall we help today, my friends,

Who shall we help today?

The lame, the sick, all those in need?

So much that one can say

And do to help another's pain

In love's compassion given,

Yours is the gift of giving, friend,

Yours are the keys to heaven!

People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.  When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.



When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly.  They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually.  They may seem like a godsend, and they are.  They are there for the reason you need them to be.  Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.  Sometimes they die.  Sometimes they walk away.  Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand.  What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled;  their work is done.  The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on.


When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn.  They may bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.  They may teach you something you have never done.  They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.  Believe it!  It is real!  But, only for a season.



LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.  Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person/people (anyway);  and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.  It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
