MY MOST BEAUTIFUL CLAY POT EVER!
Updated: Jan 26
MY FAVORITE CLAY POT! DESIGNED AND PAINTED BY MY GRANDDAUGHTER, SWEET CAROLINE ELIZABETH!
I find it amazing how the things we treasure the most become extraordinary blessings.
This sweet clay pot has become my favorite! As I watched her painting, she was totally
absorbed. Her comments about her favorite colors began drawing me closer each moment.
”Lee, it has to be perfect!” I have noticed she has become the same way with everything she does.
I truly love Robert Fulghum. His writings are simple and to the point.read these and see if you agree.
“These are the things I learned in kindergarten.” By Robert Fulghum
Don’t hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS.
Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
Say your sorry when you HURT somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life - learn some and drink some and draw some and paint some sing some and dance and play and work everyday.
12. Take a nap every afternoon. 13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands
14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the styrofIam cup;
The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows
How or why, but we are all like that. 15. Goldfish and hamster and white mice and even the little seed in the styrofoam Cup - they all die. So do we.
16. And then remember the Dick - and - Jane books and the first word you learned -
The biggest word of all - LOOK! ”
By Robert Fulgham, - All I Need to Know I learned in Kindergarten
I wonder what would happen if everyone, including our President and Congress,
had to write the above list of 16 to dos, written by Robert Fulgham, 50 times over the weekend.
Would we find each one of us practicing this same lison Monday? I just wonder how that would make a difference in this old world. Do you think we could pass the test? If not, perhaps some of this goodness might stay in our thoughts, at least for a day? How wonderful that would be.
How soon we forget the very basics of life.
What I have to say is far more important than what you have to say.
Did I just sneak in front of you in the grocery line? But I have somewhere to go and I don’t have time to stand in line.
Did I just cut you off in traffic, not allowing you in front of me? Really, I didn’t notice it.
Oh yes, you did!
Good manners, tell the truth, say you are sorry if you are being unkind, why Is it so hard?
Simple. Simple. Simple.
So why do we struggle using these kind words? I think we all need to hit the pause
button. Where are we? Better yet, ask this simple question?
What would Jesus do?
It humbles me everytime!
My sweet Caroline lives these words of love and kindness. I watch her. It is second nature to her.
So why can’t we?
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so! That is all you have to say
and you Are right.
Have a blessed weekend, tell your family you love them. If you have offended some
one, tell them you are sorry. It’s cleansing for the soul!
From the East to the West, that’s how much He forgives us! If you don’t believe me, I have just the book for you to read, the Bible! And we all said Amen!
Now we, as individual churches, have been commissioned by Christ to go and tell others About Him!
It becomes easier every time you do It, promise!
IF YOU COULD ONLY SMELL MY MR. LINCOLN!
