Inspiration Quote of the Day:

When you cannot make up your mind between two evenly balanced courses of action, choose the bolder.

 

Auguries of Innocence

It is right it should be so;
Man was made for joy and woe;
And when this we rightly know,
Thro’ the world we safely go.

Joy and woe are woven fine,
A clothing for the soul divine.
Under every grief and pine
Runs a joy with silken twine.

William Blake

 

Self Reflection

I took a look down deep inside
and found the things I’d tried to hide;
some greed, some old hypocrisy;
some selfishness still left in me
I cried "Oh Lord, please, please forgive
and show me daily how to live;"
The Lord, my God He answered me
and opened up my eyes to see.
He whispered softly "Look again
at all the things you hide within;
you’ll find some love, a caring heart,
these things you cannot tear apart.
The good in you outweighs the bad
so don’t let these things make you sad;
for if you walk with me each day
your hidden sins will fade away.

Karla Harte

These incredible images of waves were taken by the number one photographer of surf: Clark Little.  He has dedicated his life to photographing the waves and has published a selection of the the best images of his career.  He captures magical moments inside the "tube", as surfers say.

As Pooh Bear Would Say…

 

Many of you may not know this about me but Pooh Bear and Eeyore are near and dear to my heart, especially the classic Pooh.  The wonderful simply-stated things that Pooh Bear says, hold more meaning sometimes than quotes from the most famous people in the world.  I thought I would share a few “Pooh Quotes” with you and if you enjoy them, I’ll post 10 of them each week from Pooh or Eeyore.   

 

A Little History

Winnie-the-Pooh as you would know is really a stuffed toy teddy bear that belonged to Christopher Robin Milne. The original toy bear belonging to Christopher Robin is on display at Donnell Library Center Central Children’s Room in New York City. Winnie the Pooh got his name from Winnipeg, a bear that Christopher & his father Mr. Milne often saw the London Zoo, while ‘Pooh’ was a swan they met while on a vacation. Pooh the swan is there in When We Were Very Young as a separate character.

During the 1st chapter taken from Winnie-the-Pooh, author A.A. Milne offers an explanation as to why at times Winnie-the-Pooh is also called just “Pooh”. "But his arms were so stiff … they stayed up straight in the air for more than a week, and whenever a fly came and settled on his nose he had to blow it off. And I think – but I am not sure – that that is why he is always called Pooh."  

Pooh’s birthday date is a matter of some confusion. It is widely accepted that since Winnie-the-Pooh was 1st published on 14th October, 1926 by Methuen therefore this date is Pooh’s birthday and is officially recognized as the day when Pooh celebrates his birthday. In some sections it is thought that since the Pooh teddy bear was presented to Christopher Robin Milne on his first birthday i.e., 21st August, 1921 therefore Winnie-the-Pooh celebrates his birthday on this date.  

Winnie the Pooh, a bear of very little brain, tends to be a bit on the slow side (his head is full of fluff, you know…a common occurrence among teddy bears) but his heart more than makes up for that. Pooh has a love of honey (or, hunny, as it is sometimes spelled) but he can also do with a smackerel of whatever tiny quantity he can get his hands onto to soothe that insatiable “rumbly in his tumbly”. He often creates little tunes, or hums, about most anything at all.

There are different names for Winnie the Pooh, he is called Pooh Bear or even Pooh but is never just Winnie. He is gifted with an uncommon, clear-eyed wisdom. What is most important for Pooh is the well being, happiness and feelings of his friends. He is also the inventor of the famous game ‘Poohsticks’ and discoverer of the ‘North Pole’. Almost all the animals in the 100 Acre Wood take part in the ‘Poohsticks’ game, while it is always a matter of friendly competition between Pooh and Christopher Robin. The game takes place over a footbridge and the animals use sticks gathered in the close vicinity of the woodland to play the game. The sticks are then thrown into the underneath flowing river. For his brave actions he is honored as a ‘Hero’ and knighted to ‘Sir Pooh de Bear’ by Christopher Robin.

 

Pooh Quotes

“If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.”

 

“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we’re apart.. I’ll always be with you.”

 

“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever”

“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?"”

“You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”

 

“Promise me you’ll never forget me because if I thought you would I’d never leave.”

 

“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh," he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh’s paw, "I just wanted to be sure of you."

“If the person you are talking to doesn’t appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.”

 

“Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.”

“You can’t help respecting anybody who can spell TUESDAY, even if he doesn’t spell it right; but spelling isn’t everything. There are days when spelling Tuesday simply doesn’t count.”

Memo From God

  To:  You
Date:  Today
From:  God
Subject:  Yourself
Reference: Life

This is God.  Today I will be handling All of your problems for you.  I do Not need your help.  So, have a nice day. I love you.


P.S.  And, remember…
If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do Not attempt to resolve it yourself!  Kindly put it in the SFGTD (something for God to do) box. I will get to it in MY TIME.  All situations will be resolved, but in My time, not yours..

 
Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it by worrying about it.  Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now.

 
If you find yourself stuck in traffic, don’t despair. There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.

 
Should you have a bad day at work; think of the man who has been out of work for years.

 
Should you despair over a relationship gone bad; think of the person who has never known what it’s like to love and be loved in return.

 
Should you grieve the passing of another weekend; think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week to feed her children.

 
Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance; think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.

 
Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror; think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.

 
Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking what is my purpose? Be thankful. There are those who didn’t live long enough to get the opportunity.

 
Should you find yourself the victim of other people’s bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities; remember, things could be worse. You could be one of them!

 
Should you decide to send this to a friend; Thank you. You may have touched their life in ways you will never know!
Now, you have a nice day.

God
