Resentments hang heavy on the heart.
Heaven teaches by the only weapon they have. That is Conscience.
Beware the one who sings loudest in church. They may be pleading a cause of which they are not proud.
Swift action by the wrong person often takes the decision out of the hands of the one who should be making it.
When the premises are broadened and the frame of reference pushed out, the view is expanded.
You cannot stoop but an other’s back is bent. You cannot breathe but an other’s breath is taken.
Privacy is the ultimate illusion.
Work, lovingly done, is prayerful attendance to life. It is reverence toward life.
Words will hang a person. Words are nooses with scaffolding complete to hang the man. Words will by themselves come back to haunt. This is what the weight of words is.
Parenting is a sacred trust. And children come with a sacred permit.
Every world requires maintenance. Even Heaven. So we better get in the habit of cleaning up our own messes.

Bravo, Veronica! Well stated. We’d better pay attention.
This is a powerful….. In today’s world which is so connected, we sometimes think if we eschew the social media sites, we can be private and more separate. But that is, of course, wrong on so many levels.
Our actions speak volumes; we don’t have to use any words. And then, the reminder that words can be tricky. Even the right ones…said at the wrong time, can be hurtful.
Lots to think about, today.
Pat, thank you. Such small lessons and they have taken almost a hundred years for me to learn what they mean. Yet, this is the best classroom among many worlds. We must cherish it.
Thanks Suzanne. Nice to have a cheering section! And for headwork! Who would have thought???????

Veronica, this is wonderful. I’ve been supporting a family since I was 19 years old. I am 59 and have my alarm set for 4 am. I still look at my work as a privilege not a job. Each of your paradigm’s should be carried in every man’s wallet.
