A Few Things I've Learned

A few things I've learned in my 50+ years here on Miralee Ferrell

Life is too short to waste in worry.

We only have today, tomorrow can take care of itself.

God only gave us one body. Take care of it like you hope it will last two-hundred years, and pray that it makes it in good shape for half of that.

When I get close to the grave, I want to be remembered for my relationships, not my resources or accomplishments.

Laughter truly does do good like a can't laugh too often.

Allowing joy to flood your life impacts you physically, mentally, emotionally and relationally.

No one will ever understand you like God does...turn to Him with every care, no matter how large or small.

If you have something to complain about, take it to God and leave it there. Most of your friends really don't want to hear about it.

If you have a big vision or dream, only share it with those who you know will encourage it.

God wants to stretch our vision beyond what we can imagine. Let Him.

You can't succeed if you don't try. Often when you try, you'll fail. Failing shows you what NOT to do next time. Try again.

A true friend believes in y0u, cries with you, and listens with their heart.

Other than your relationship with God, there is nothing more important than family.

If you don't spread your wings and try to fly, you'll live in the nest your entire life, and miss out on the world's breathtaking beauty.

God never said we could do it all....He said In HIM all things are possible. Only believe.

Sometimes you must allow your children to fail, or they'll never grow beyond where they are now.

My husband is often right, but it takes a big woman and a humble heart to admit it.

Try something new on a regular basis. You might surprise yourself and find out you love it.

You're never too old to jump into your dream. Keep your hand in God's as you jump, and you can't go wrong.

I like this one. :-) Reminds me of one of the most important things in life, besides loving God. :-) Those were awesome and very encouraging. You are definitely the kind of person I would want to be around a lot if I knew you in person!

I am getting closer and closer to the grave we never know when that time will be. A young woman here in town where I live was jut driving home the other night and a storm came up, a tree fell on her car and killed her just like that, she was just going down the road home so we have to be ready every second, as God is the only one that knows time time and the hour even down to the sec., that we will meet him. I really enjoy reading the Christian books and I do read a lot, may God bless you Miralee.
