Words of Wisdom


I need this tattooed on my hand where I can see it. This was a quote I saw on the wall at the YMCA last week and I need to practice this A LOT...I took the quote into PicMonkey and wrote it down and signed it....

Imagine what our world could be if we all stood by this...Be Still My Mouth... another quote for myself.

My parents and my brother David, dog Joey 1970
One of the many things my parents taught me  is always ....

Perfect quotes and I wish I had that first one tattooed on my brain. The older I get the harder it is to keep my mouth shut when I have an opinion.

I need to put the first one on a poster board and hang it in our home as a reminder for us all. :) love the pics of your family! and love seeing one of your childhood puppy dogs! thanks for sharing words of wisdom!!

Amen. Another might be "Don't say anything if you can't say something good."

Gail said...

Love the family shots...and the sayings. We would all be wise to follow those.

I have a quote by, of all people, Oprah! I just put it on our prayer line. She said that the best sign of integrity is to do something really good that no one will ever find out about. Funny, I JUST put that quote on the line a couple days ago. I love your first quote and have saved it to put out for the church, too. Your parents raised you RIGHT, I can see that almost every day. A lot of parents nowadays are on drugs or just don't care. It wasn't like that in the fifties and before.

Those are great qualities to live by Sandra - Happy Sunday to you.

Is your brother still alive? I don't think I have heard you mention him.

Ruth Hiebert said...

It is true that our mouths get us into more trouble than we care to admit.

Rose said...

Maybe we can go together and get that tattooed on our hand...or in our brain.
