3 Fundamental ABC's for Life

wisdomForgotten your abc's and 123's? Didn't think so! We learn our abc's and 123's very young. We don't forget them. We use them as a foundation for learning to read, add and subtract. I've put together a grown-up list of abc's and 123's. These are things I've learned and use everyday to help me keep it all together. If you have one you'd like to add to the list, please email it to me. I will share them next week.

A. Accept Everybody. This means accepting everything about them (even the stuff you don't like).
B. Believe Anyway. When everyone else has moved on, trust your faith.
C. Communicate Continually. The only person who reads minds is God and even he wants to hear from you.

1. Take time and care for yourself. You'll be able to give more to others.
2. Soak up wisdom from your elders, especially your parents then...practice it.
3. Love Jesus with every ounce of your being.

Some may think that if you do number 3, the other things just come natural. I wish! We are born with a sin nature and struggle even on our best days. God certainly helps us but it takes extra effort to manhandle or womanhandle our beings into submission. Agreed?
An important lesson I've learned lately...Life is best lived one day at a time! What have you learned?

Still learning,


The Happy Handicap
