12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels

Happy 4th of July!!!!

I ran across this in a file and thought it was appropriate as we celebrate the anniversary of our nation’s independence and the wise men of faith to whom we owe a debt of gratitude. It’s good advice even today.

Thomas Jefferson’s Decalogue
1.    Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
2.    Never trouble another with what you can do yourself.
3.    Never spend your money before you have it.
4.    Never buy what you don’t want, because it’s cheap.
5.    Pride costs us more than hunger, thirst, and cold.
6.    We never repent for having eaten too little.
7.    Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly.
8.    We suffer so much worry for evils which never happen.
9.    Take things always by their smooth handle.
10.When angry, count to ten or 100 before you speak. If very angry, count to 100.

Applicable & Cool, huh?
