Some Thoughts for a Thursday


How often do we talk about thinking in our daily lives? More than we think…as follows:

“What was I thinking of?”

“What do you think?”

“I didn’t think of it that way!”

“Oh, just thinking out loud.”

“A penny for your thoughts…”

“Hold that thought!”

“I was lost in thought.”

“I wasn’t thinking clearly.”

And then there is that ‘train of thought’.

I think we spend more time thinking than we think we do, and that’s a good thought.

Happy Thursday.

Whether you think you can, or you think you can’tyoure right. Henry Ford

The essence of the independent mind lies not in what it thinksbut in how it thinks.’ Christopher Hitchens

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when creating them. Albert Einstein

“I think and think and think. I‘ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it.” Jonathan Safran Foer

Don’t just think, ponder. Roy T. Bennett

“Five percent of the people think; ten percent of the people think they think; and the other eighty-five percent would rather die than think.” Thomas A. Edison

Some Thoughts for a Tuesday


Thinking is a valuable and fun pastime. Here are a few thoughts for today:

Every moment that we are aware of the gift of simply being, with or without activity, is well lived. Catherine Ingram

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. Einstein

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. Plato

Let no one be slow to seek wisdom when he is young nor weary in the search of it when he has grown old. For no age is too early or too late for the health of the soul. Epicurus

Don’t just say you have read books. Show that through them you have learned to think better, to be a more discriminating and reflective person. Epictetus

Other things to think about: things we cannot see…air, wind, nothing.

Empty space is not really empty, it is filled with air.

Happy Tuesday.

 

 

Out of the Pages


For the last three Sundays, our church, St. Andrew’s Scarborough, has had the privilege of meeting Biblical folk practically face to face.

First it was Peter. He stepped out of the pages of the Bible and spoke to us through Pastor Duncan. He told of his life as a disciple of Jesus and what it was like to be in the company of this amazing man for the three years of his ministry on earth.

The following Sunday we met Mary Magdalene, speaking to us through Pastor Monica. She also told us about how much she had learned and profited from knowing Jesus.

Then, we met Lazarus. What a story he had to tell…what it was like to die and then be called back to life by his best friend, this very same Jesus.

Today we meet the High Priest, Caiaphas. Caiaphas presided over the Sanhedrin, the highest court of the Jewish people, and organized the plot to kill Jesus. I’m looking forward to hearing what he has to say for himself. Happy Sunday

 

My Feathered Friends


Sometimes it’s the little things that can put a smile on your face. For me it was seeing my first robin of the Spring on Thursday, and right on his tail, appeared my favorite feathered friends…the cardinal and his mate.

Whatever it is that puts a smile on your face, have a happy Saturday.
