Memories are key…

Memories are the key not to the past but to the future! ~Corrie ten Boom~ Memories are key… I remember you… memories… good and bad… some are in the forefront of our minds and some are tucked away and hidden but they are there and they think they can pay us a visit any time they like. What calls them forth? Where have they been and from where do they come? Memories are calling to me lately…. they are coming back and they seem to haunt and taunt me… I ask myself the question how do I deal with them? They are real, but they are of the past, they changed the outcomes of my life but thank GOD that He redeemed my life and His grace was applied to each and every one. Is it ok to shove them back into the recesses of my mind or should I…

Removing the sting… 

Removing the sting… sting [sting] verb 1. to prick or wound with a sharp-pointed, often venom-bearing organ. 2. to affect painfully or irritatingly as a result of contact, as certain plants do: to be stung by nettles. 3. to cause to smart or to cause a sharp pain: The blowing sand stung his eyes. 4. to cause mental or moral anguish: to be stung with remorse. 5. to goad or drive, as by sharp irritation.

Learning material…

~Learning material~ Life has enough learning material for many life times! What we learn today we can take into tomorrow. If we don’t take it in tomorrow it wastes the learning material. Every lesson is valuable and sometimes only years later do we see the value in the lesson. The lessons of the people around us are also invaluable… Usually we need to learn things for our self but in seeing the lessons of those around us is an amazing resource that we don’t have to pay for!
