Thoughts from November 10 Through Recent Years
If they meant something then, maybe they will prompt a thought now. Some are words and some are images.
What we do with our thoughts, ideas, and insights is entirely up to us.
We can think them, express them, ponder them, and act on them. We can also let them die. We could always put them aside an d come back to them.
It is a matter of choice and discretion.
Remember: Things can happen very quickly.
I have been there!
Now, while you will still be you years later, you will also be much more.
Here is the rest that was truncated:
I wonder what I would tell this kid if I met him in some time-warped, celestial vestibule during a meet and greet.
Could I tell him anything?
Or should I just play dumb and let him figure it out as best he could ... which ...
I suppose he did.
Would you actually try to tell your younger self anything if you had the chance?
I just thrw that one in.
Were you an early adopter?
Are you generally an early adopter?
What difference has that made for you?
Pause to remember.
Here is the untruncated version:
Born this day in 1779 – Anne-Marie Javouhey, French nun, founder of the Sisters of St Joseph of Cluny.
As a teen, she helped to hide and care for a number of priests persecuted by the French Revolution.
She founded the Institute of Saint Joseph of Cluny.
She opened missionary work in Senegal, Gambia, Sierra Leon, the Reunion Islands, and Guiana.
She founded a leper colony, participated in the emancipation of slaves, developed agricultural communities, survived a plot to kill her, and created schools for children.
Big ideas make a difference, but lived lived, day by day, are what really count. Like this one:
I have tried many idea and many have failed.
Yet, some have succeeded!
What if I had never tried anything?
I actually preached on this scripture Sunday.
Learn from every experience.
Take pictures and take action!
What are your take-aways today?
