Everything I Need To Know...

~ the road before ~

It's a rainy, drizzly, overcast day here on the farm; perfect for napping! Dave had to go to town; it's quiet, peaceful and I'm thinking about taking a nap. Before I do, please continue reading. I don't know who wrote the following but it's applicable for today...and since it's always today and never yesterday or tomorrow, y'all print it off and put it where you can be reminded, daily: You are Loved with an Everlasting Love.

People, it just doesn't get any better, not on this side of the veil!

...I learned from Noah's Ark ~

1: Don't miss the boat.

2: Remember that we are all in the same boat.

3: Plan ahead. 
It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.

4: Stay fit. 
As you age, you can still do something really big, 
including telling the good news to all who will hear.

5: Don't listen to critics; 
just get on with the job that needs to be done.

6: Build your future on high ground.

7: For safety's sake, travel in pairs.

8: Speed isn't always an advantage. 
The snails were on board with the cheetahs.

9: When you're stressed, float awhile.

10: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; 
the Titanic by professionals.

11: No matter the storm, when you are with God, 
there's always a rainbow waiting.

Blessings ~ rain ~ quiet ~ rainbows ~ everlasting love ~


  1. Hello Sandra and Dave:
    As we cannot swim, this advice looks very good indeed!!!!

    Endless rain is such a gift sometimes since it justifies [if any justification is needed] hunkering down with, in our case, a good book, a cup of coffee and a glass of wine as the shadows lengthen. We do so hope that you are enjoying a relaxing time as we write!!

  2. Rain and drizzle, be still my heart! Enjoy!! Great advice, really great!

  3. A wonderful reminder. Hope you slept like a baby. :)

  4. Very nice things to remember.

  5. yes ma'am - all good points to keep in mind - the part about all being in same boat - sure wish more people would remember to keep their part of the boat on an even keel! Bless you too Sandra and Dave - we are praying for you both

  6. Thank you, my friend! It is printed and will be shared with others!

  7. Enjoy your nap!

    I loved the sayings, so funny, so true.
