Chapter 2, Page 4, Book 17


♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ 


Circumstances may cause interruptions and delays, but never lose sight of your goal.  Prepare yourself in every way you can by increasing your knowledge and adding to your experience, so that you can make the most of opportunity when it occurs. 

Mario Andretti 

February 4th - open to the possibility 

Sometimes it isn't what you do, but what you don't do that makes you who you are.

We all make plans. Our lives are busy, and we often feel annoyed by interruptions. It can be tempting to deflect interruptions or brush people aside because you want to guard your private time or finish your TO DO list. But if you do that, you could end up missing an opportunity to make a difference, even a dramatic one, in someone’s life.


It’s OK to go ahead, and make your plans! Just don’t be surprised when God interrupts you with an chance to show you care and to make a difference.

When you are exasperated by interruptions, try to remember that their very frequency may indicate the valuableness of your life. Only the people who are full of help and strength are burdened by other people's needs. The interruptions which we chafe at are the credentials of our indispensability. The greatest condemnation that anybody could incur--and it is a danger to guard against -- is to be so independent, so unhelpful, that nobody ever interrupts us and we are left comfortably alone.

I always like your quotes, like the Mario Andretti one. Sometimes I would never have thought that certain person would have said that. John Michael and I love the movie "Turbo", and now we know that one of the voices was Mario Andretti. Beautiful bright sunshine this morning, hope you have it also.

I like that quote about finding 1000 reasons to smile. We do have to be adaptable and flexible in our days for those circumstances that come our way. I think if we aren't adaptable or flexible, it can just lead to frustration which is something we don't want to have to deal with.

I read that and said, ain't it the truth! I love it when a statement just fits a situation to a 'T'.

Thanks...

I never thought of it this way, but their is merit to it. "The interruptions which we chafe at are the credentials of our indispensability."
