Wisdom of the Ages 384

Janet in Colorado also left a contribution for Wisdom of the Ages project, it reads:

I can do most anything for an hour. As long as I know there’s a time limit, I seem to be able to step up and do disagreeable things cheerfully…for an hour or so. A close second would be that problems that look insurmountable at 3 a.m. are going to look much more managable at 7 a.m.

Another email contribution for Wisdom of the Ages project arrived from Luthorienne, it reads:

I’ve learned that my wealth must be measured by the things I have for which I would not take money. I’ve learned that, if I can get to the end of my life and have put more into the world than I have taken out of it, I will have been a success. I’ve learned that doing a kindness for another person enriches my life more than any material gain possibly could. And I’ve learned that God could have made us perfect, but didn’t, and that He only expects us to do our best.

No one can go back to create a new beginning, BUT everyone can go forward to create a new ending!
