Before you quit, try.
Befor you talk, listen
Before you react, think.
Before you criticize, wait
Before you move on, forgive.
I chose the word BEFORE for my theme today. It’s a good one to think about so I’ve lots to share
Finish each day before you begin the next, and interpose a solid wall of sleep between the two.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Things we did before the internet:
We went outside more
We talked more
We used the phone book
We had to wait for an order to be placed over the phone or through the mail
We bought newspapers and magazines
We went to the library to look up information in reference books or if we had one, we used the encyclopedia
Things to do before making a big decision
Explore the options
Consider who will be affected
Invite others to give their opinions
Don’t let fear make your choices for you
Move forward and used your God given wisdom
When your life flashes before your eyes, make sure you've got plenty to watch.
Things to do before you get to heaven
Give away something valuable
Reconnect with a long lost friend
Spend an entire day totally focused on the One who gave you the gift of life
Dance with abandon
Banish anything that's preventing you from opening your hands and your heart to others.
Refuse to retire from life.
Share what you've learned. Listen as much as you talk. Ask questions. Encourage. Stay open to God's surprises, and you may learn as much as you teach.
You have to be before you can do, and do before you can have.
