Wisdom from a church bulletin:

1. Learn from other’s mistakes rather than making them all yourself.

2. The secret of contentment is the realization that Life is a Gift, not a Right…..

3. Why is a car’s windshield so large and the rear view mirror so small? Because our past is not as important as             our future. So look ahead and move on.

4. Worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles; it takes away today’s peace.

5. God is like General Electric – He brings good things to life.

6. Don’t be afraid of pressure. Remember that pressure is what turns a lump of coal into a diamond.
