    Re: Inspirational quotes

    God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, nor sun without rain. But he did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.

    Life isn't measured by the breaths we take, but rather, by the moments that take our breath away!

    My goal in life is to be the kind of person my dog thinks I am!

    Wink Re: Inspirational quotes

    Climb Till Your Dream Comes True
    Often your tasks will be many.
    And more that you think you can do-
    Often the road will be rugged
    And the hills insurmountable, too-
    But always remember, the hills ahead
    Are never as steep as they seem,
    And with Faith in your heart start upward
    And climb till you reach your dream.
    For nothing in life that is worthy
    Is ever too hard to achieve
    If you have the courage to try it
    And you have the Faith to believe-
    For Faith is a force that is greater
    Than knowledge or power or skill
    And many defeats turn to triumph
    If you trust in God's wisdom and will-
    For Faith is a mover of mountains,
    There is nothing that God cannot do,
    So start out today with Faith in your heart
    And "Climb Till Your Dream Comes True"

    Helen Steiner Rice

    I got this poem at a friends funeral. It is something that I have hanging up in my room so I can read it often and climb the mountain!!!

    Andy Griffith Show "Man In a Hurry"

    [Traveling through Mayberry, Mr Tucker, owner of Tucker Enterprises of Charlotte, NC is desperately trying to use the phone in Andy's house so he can call for help to get his car fixed (on a Sunday, no less!). Andy's phone is on a party line (for you youngsters, a party line is where two or more households share the same phone line) and two women won't quit talking with each other.]

    "...a public utility being tied up like this! You people are living in another world, this is the 20th century, don't you realize that? The whole world is living in a desperate space age. Men are orbiting the earth, international television has been developed, and here, a whole town is standing still because two old women's feet fall asleep!"

    Good one I Am Blessed.

    I love Andy Griffith!!!! Yes, I am 47 but I so remember party lines....wow how things have changed!!! I remember when we just got cable the year that I graduated high school. Atari was the video game of choice, no microwaves, cell phones, small computers, laptop computers. Things are so different, my son has seen a record but not an 8 track tape.... Just things to think about......it makes you smile!!! You made me smile, thanks!!
