Jack’s Winning Words 3/20/15
“The game of life is the game of boomerangs. Deeds and words return to us sooner or later.” (Florence Shinn) The boomerang is a tool/weapon used by the Australian aborigines. I’ve read how it works; you throw it and it comes back. I’m still mystified. Something else that amazes me is how being kind to others results in kindness being returned. The way of the world is “an eye for an eye.” Who, but God, could have dreamed up the idea of grace? ;-) Jack
FROM TARMART REV: Reaping what we've sown!!====JACK: Wheat or tares!
FROM RI IN BOSTON: If you want to experience Christmas every day, give of yourself to other people around you. Any gesture of good will means more than we realize. It's amazing how the simplest effort you make can improve someone's day. Like the rings that spread out from a pebble in the water, a good deed usually evokes more good deeds.====JACK: Ripples...one of the beauties of nature. Gratitude...one of the beauties of humanity.
FROM HAWKEYE GEORGE: One of the chapters in my book is titled, "Life is Reciprocity". ====JACK: Reciprocity...I like the sound of that word! Another chapter is..."What have you done for me lately?" Often, business is "quid pro quo." Blessed are those who are nice to one another because, it's just their nature to be nice.
FROM TAMPA SHIRL: What goes around comes around.====JACK: Or as Major Bowes used to say as he spun the Amateur Hour's big wheel: "Round and round she goes, and where she stops nobody knows."
ROM BLAZING OAKS: It does seem that way, often. "If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader." John Quincy Adams Hopefully we have all been a leader to some, and that will return to bless us! Good WW to ponder today! ====JACK: Have you ever tried to throw a boomerang? It's not as easy as it looks. On the other hand, doing a good deed is easy...and it is usually returned when least expected.
