"THINK on THESE THINGS"
by Joyce Sequichie Hifler
If you don't know what to do about a situation - wait awhile, the answer
will come. If weariness overcomes you before you've completed a
difficult job, wait awhile, you'll get your second wind.
If you do not agree with someone else's philosophy, don't fret, perhaps
later you will come to know that the same philosophy can be reached from
many different directions.
If you think the activities of another person or group are frivolous and
unnecessary, wait a bit, they most likely will feel the same way about
If you don't like what others have to say, wait, they may clarify it -
or you may change your mind.
If life hasn't dished you unhappiness, wait a bit, if you've planted any
happiness seeds, you will also reap.
We can't always wait, but sometiems waiting is action, and action of the
hardest kind. It is difficult to keep quiet when you have something to
say, but it more often saves your face later and sometimes your life.
August 31 - Daily Feast
A person totally dominated by his emotions is little different from a
piece of paper lifted and tossed by the wind. Everything centers around
caution - don't do this, don't say that - or an emotional explosion can
take place. None of us escapes emotional extremes. We have cried our
hearts out and laughed hilariously in all the wrong places. We have
known melancholy and ragged nerves. But most of us know how to stabilize
our feelings. The unstable times are when someone feels he has a right
to blow. Without sadness or happiness we could be deadly indifferent,
but to be blown about with every emotion is a waste of human spirit.
~ May the Lord bring you out of all your troubles. Trust your course
with Him. ~

"Our Creator makes available to us all that we need. It is an honor to
go out and gather it. We must remember to say 'Thank You.' It is
honorable to give away, to show our gratitude... and to let the children
--Barney Bush, SHAWNEE
So many times we forget to say "thank You" to the Creator. He made for
us and abundant universe. He built the Mother Earth to reproduce plenty
of everything. It is an honor to be a part of the Great Spirit's world.
The Creator always gives us what we need. When we are given things, we
should be willing to share it with others. Whenever we give to others,
this makes us feel good inside. The more we give, the better we feel.
The better we feel, the more we want to give. We need to teach this to
our children. The children learn by our behavior.
