Each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass,
A book of rules.
And each must make,
Ere life has flown,
A stumbling block
Or a steppingstone.
------ R.L. Sharpe

That's a good one. Sent to me by a friend. So I guess the question to ask ourselves is ... what are we making with and of our lives ---- our thoughts, words, actions. Are we building or destroying? Are we sowing good seeds or rotten ones? Are we loving or hating? Are we a blessing to others or have we made ourselves somebody's burden or bane?

Let's take ourselves seriously. Waste not precious time and life with being such huge disappointments to the Lord. And in case we forget, let's remember that we were designed or created for good - to do good, think good, speak good, act good. No other way to live our lives. No other way to be authentically you or me or us..... that means everybody.

Remember this popular quote: "Life is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift to God."

Blessings to you all. Have a pleasant evening.


  1. Life must not be wasted as u rightly said Ellen...we have to live for each other, fr their happiness, for their advantage and to share love all across

  2. Glad that we share the same thoughts, Prams. Blessings to you and your family.

  3. Ellen,

    You summed it up so nicely in the quote just before ending. Hope we all can understand this.

    Take care

  4. I think we all do, Jack. But nobody seems to be paying serious attention to it. Our greatest fault is taking so many things for granted in life.

    Take care too. God bless you.
