Jack’s Winning Words 12/21/15
“You can never do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.” (Emerson) Do you remember Captain Hindsight, from TV’s South Park? He always came up with the solution after the problem situation had occurred. He was a genius. How many times have we said, “I coulda, woulda, shoulda?” There’s a letter to be written, a call to be made, a job to be done, a thank-you to be said…before it’s too late ;-) Jack
FROM TARMART REV: "Today is the day . . . "====JACK: Robert Schuller would often begin his telecasts by quoting Psalm 118:24, "This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it." It's an awesome responsibility to realize that, each day, we are using the Lord's day.
FROM HUNGRY HOWIE: Really Jack, quoting South Park, I Love that, made me smile this morning, thank you====JACK: Sometimes listening to South Park is like listening to a sermon (with a few beeps).
FROM A SPARTAN IN WISCONSIN: Thank you for this reminder! I am way overdue to tell you how much I enjoy your Winning Words every morning. And I am still thrilled to have re-connected with you in this "modern" fashion all the way from Wisconsin!====JACK: Even more amazing to me is the way the connection happened...a chance meeting of two of my friends who did not know of each other's connection with me. A hymn begins, "God moves in a mysterious way his wonders to perform."
FROM BLAZING OAKS: I'm not familiar with South park, but Debbie Macomber, the author, hit upon a truth when she said, "If you love, you get love back, and that's just a simple basic truth. If you are loved, it's because you love. It's like a mirror. We get back what we give out". There are probably always exceptions, but that seems to be true in the majority of situations . kindness is always appreciated!====JACK: My grandchildren like SP's humor. I check in on it occasionally. You ought to YouTube it so you can tune in to another generation's humor.
FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: Never saw South Park. But I definitely believe this statement. It's always better to do it today when it comes to apologies, thank you's, and I live you's!====JACK: South Park would not be your cup of tea. But, you can find good in some unlikely places.
FROM DB IN MICHIGAN: You're so right!====JACK: "Too late!" can be some really sad words.
