"Things I've learned" by Andy Rooney




FROM ONE FRIEND TO ANOTHER


Written by Andy Rooney, a man who had the gift of saying so much with so few words.   Enjoy...


I've  learned .... That the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.


I've learned .... That when you're in love, it shows.


I've learned .... That just one person saying to me, 'You've made my day!' makes my day.


I've learned .... That having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.


I've learned .... That being kind is more important than being right.


I've learned .... That you should never say no to a gift from a child.


I've learned .... That I can always pray for someone when I don't have the strength to help him in some other way.


I've learned .... That no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy  with.


I've learned .... That sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.


I've learned .... That simple walks with my father around the block on summer nights when I was a child did wonders for me as an adult.


I've learned .... That life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.


I've learned .... That we should be glad God doesn't give us everything we ask for.


I've learned .... That money doesn't buy class.


I've learned .... That it's those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.


I've learned ... That under everyone's hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.


I've learned .... That to ignore the facts does not change the facts.


I've learned .... That when you plan to get even with someone, you are only letting that person continue to hurt you.


I've learned .... That the easiest way for  me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people smarter than I am.


I've learned .... That everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile.


I've  learned .... That no one is perfect until you fall in love with them.


I've learned ... That life is tough, but I'm tougher.


I've learned .... That opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss.


I've learned .... That when you harbour bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere.


I've learned .... That I wish I could have told my Mom that I love her one more time before she passed away.


I've learned .... That one should keep his words both soft and tender, because tomorrow he may have to eat them.


I've learned .... That a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.


I've learned .... That when your newly born grandchild holds your little finger in his  little fist, that you're hooked for life.

I've learned .... That everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it.


I've learned .... That love, not time, heals all wounds.

Say it! "My Everything Comes From the LORD!"


 "I lift up my eyes to the hills-- where does my help come from?  My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth." Psalm 121:1-2



Poem:

"I am more than a new fashion, more than a new song
more than a new experience. My love is always on.
So taste and see that with my love you can never go wrong
there's no mistake, say it, my love is always on."

Say it!  Make your confession today:

Say of God:  My help comes from the LORD!  My money comes from the LORD!  My blessings come from the LORD!  My job comes from the LORD!  My family comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth!  My everything comes from the LORD!  Say it, Church! Say it loud! "I lift up my eyes to the hills-- where does my help come from?  My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth."

You Can Not Obey Me and Get Away with it! :)



I have promised by who I am that you will be blessed!  You can't wake up early in the morning to be with Me and get away with it!  You can't honor my name and get away with it!  You can't worship me above all other things and get away with it!

If you obey me for my name sake you and all your descendants, your children will be blessed!  Because you believe in me above all other things, you can't get away with it!  You're going to be blessed!  You can not bless my holy name in the name of Jesus and get away with it.

"Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments."  Deuteronomy 7:9

Love for Jesus has to preceed any other love for it to be of use for His kingdom.
