Practical Spiritual Truths

I received these ten practical spiritual truths with deep meanings from a disabled (blind) Nam veteran a few years back. I tucked them away and the Pickle Queen ran across them while cleaning out the desk. Thought I’d share them with you.

  1. Prayer is not a “spare wheel” that you pull out when in trouble; it is a “steering wheel” that directs us in the right path throughout life.
  2. Do you know why a car’s WINDSHIELD is so large and the rear view mirror is so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, look ahead and move on.
  3. Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes a few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.
  4. All things in life are temporary. If going well enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong don’t worry, they can’t last long either.
  5. Old friends are like Gold! New friends are like Diamonds! If you get a Diamond, don’t forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a base of Gold!
  6. Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, “Relax, sweetheart, it’s just a bend, not the end!”
  7. When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn’t solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.
  8. A blind person asked St. Anthony: “Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?” He replied, “Yes, losing your vision.”
  9. When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them; and when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.
  10. WORRYING does not take away tomorrow’s TROUBLES; it takes away today’s PEACE.
