Winning Words 3/14/13
“If you wait for tomorrow, tomorrow comes. If you don’t wait for tomorrow, tomorrow comes.” (Unknown) Someone once tried to tell my future by reading the lines in the palm of my hand. What do you think about fortune telling? Personally, I believe the words of the song, “Que sera, sera,” whatever will be, will be. The great philosopher, Charlie Brown once said: “I only dread one day at a time.” ;-) Jack
FROM HONEST JOHN: There's a difference between worrying about tomorrow and preparing for tomorrow...preparing often removes the need to worry.////JACK: "Be Prepared," is a good motto, but preparation doesn't necessarily cure worrywartitis. So, "Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and smile, smile, smile...So, what's the use of worrying? It never was worthwhile."////JOHN: Worrying is natural. Preparation can help to ease it. Not preparing can often lead to the necessity to worry.////JACK: The famous William Feather said, "Some people are making such thorough preparation for rainy days that they aren't enjoying today's sunshine."
FROM WALMART REV: Was it King Saul who didn't fare so well with his? Little too spooky for my taste . . . I even stay away from those "prophetical evangelists" that hit town occasionally . . . I don't want them telling my future- sticking with the Word...////JACK: It was King Balshazzar who saw the handwriting on the wall (mene, mene, tekel, parsin), and it was Daniel who was able to explain the future to him.
FROM PLAIN FOLKS CHESTER: "The sun will come out tomorrow" ARFF!////JACK: I thought that it was Annie and not Sandy who did the singing. BTW, did you know that the comic strip was based on a poem by James Whitcomb Riley..."Little Orphant Annie?"
FROM BLAZING OAKS: Just read a "finish the sentence quote, "TOMORROW IS....promised to no one. (Clint Eastwood) ...the first, blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one! (Brad Paisley)
...our permanent address. (E.E. Cummings) I'd say, TOMORROW is....another chance to get it right!"
I love the song Que Serra...My twin and I sang that in one of our programs we gave several times.
Good thought for today and all our "tomorrows". The world will go on, no matter what!!////JACK: I like this poem written by Edgar Guest...
He was going to be all that a mortal should be
No one should be kinder or braver than he
A friend who was troubled and weary he knew,
Who'd be glad of a lift and who needed it, too;
On him he would call and see what he could do
Each morning he stacked up the letters he'd write
And thought of the folks he would fill with delight
It was too bad, indeed, he was busy today,
And hadn't a minute to stop on his way;
More time he would have to give others, he'd say
The greatest of workers this man would have been
The world would have known him, had he ever seen
But the fact is he died and he faded from view,
And all that he left here when living was through
Was a mountain of things he intended to do
FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: Tomorrow is the today we had yesterday. ////JACK: Each day has its tomorrows. Proverbs 27:1 "Fret not thyself of the morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth."
WILLIAM CONGREVE: "Defer not till tomorrow to be wise, tomorrow's sun to thee may never rise."
