Some Collected “Wiseries”

“Wiseries” is a new word I coined to describe different and wise sayings I have collected over the years; to name a few…

Put on a glove and get in the game of life. A father to his son.

Your job isn’t to always hit a home run; it’s simply to step up to the plate. Matthew Ruttan

Insight sees what eyesight cannot see.

As you travel on life’s journey, whatever be your goal, keep your eye upon the doughnut, and not upon the whole. David Lynch.

The things we see are a very small fraction of the things that are.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

For every time there is a season and for every life there is a reason.

Pessimism is a waste of time. Norman Cousins

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life is what happens while you are making other plans.

In the journey of life what may appear to be the end is actually a new beginning.







The Honest Serving Men

The first verse of  Rudyard Kipling’s poem, “I Keep Six Honest Serving Men” goes like this:

I keep six honest serving men

(They taught me all I ever knew);

Their names are What and Why and When

And How and Where and Who.

This got me to thinking about my own existence and I posed the following questions to myself:

Who am I?

Why am I here?

What is the purpose of my life?

Where is my life taking me?

When will I arrive?

How will I know the answers?

I have given myself the weekend to ponder this and perhaps by Monday I’ll have some answers.  Please feel free to share some input on your own six honest serving men.

What’s In A Name?

Trying to catch up on the first five “Blogging 101″ days, this is day two’s assignment. We are told to consider changing the title of our Blog or as WordPress puts it…”edit your title and tagline”.

Yesterday I wrote about possibly changing my title but hadn’t quite decided on a new one and would love a little input from you readers.

Insight seems to be one of my stronger personality traits. Also, I love seeking guidance in my Bible and have always believed my writing is Spirit led; maybe not all of it but certainly much of it.

Yesterday, I came across this in 2 Timothy 2:7 Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.

Now, what drew my attention was the fact that I have been toying with THE INSIGHT PAGE as a possible title; or possibly just INSIGHTS.

I’m hoping some faithful readers will also give me some insight into this; what would make a good new name to replace My Precious Life, the Blog?

“When You Remember Me”

This man, Frederick Buechner, writes some insightful messages. I love them. And so do the people who read yesterday’s quote about carrying our loved ones in our hearts, minds and stomachs. Two bloggers sent me hugs! Thank you SO much! Today I am posting a quote and giving Buechner’s direct link so whoever is so inclined, may help themselves to his writings.

“When you remember me, it means you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am on who you are. It means that you can summon me back to your mind even though countless years and miles may stand between us. It means that if we meet again, you will know me. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart.”

Frederick Buechner

How encouraging are these words; how poignant the message.
