Two Things Given Equally to All

We have no control over the circumstances into which we are born. Some are born poor, some rich, some plain, some gifted. 
There are two things we are given equally—time and will. It’s how we use these gifts that determine the eventual value of our lives.

Communication can be overrated.
Once words leave the mouth,
they can never be retrieved.
To express negative feelings that have not yet
been taken to the Lord for His working,
is to expose the mess Satan is trying to make in
one’s life as though it were an accomplished feat.

Quality Words

To the discerning listener, one who speaks badly of others is the one who looks small.
Feeding a relationship with unkind words  about another is like drinking  poisoned tea together.
Kind words endear a speaker to a listener.

Taking personal offense from the words or  actions of others is like eating poison  offered from their hands.
Sluff the hurt away  with a kind thought or word. Choose to live a lovely life.

This, Too, Shall Pass.

When some great sorrow, like a tsunami wave, roars over your heart with peace-destroying power, hold fast to the reality that this, too, shall pass.

“Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.”
Psalm 30:5

Moira Brown interview with Diane Roblin-Lee

Here you will find the essence of the wisdom of Grace Irwin Roblin, as distilled by her daughter.

This blog is dedicated to all who read it, in the hopes that sharing the essence of my mother, Ella Mariah Grace (Irwin) Roblin, will reaffirm priceless values,help smooth the path ahead,and bring blessing to your life as she always did, so abundantly, to mine.

The results of Grace’s life are the results everyone wants from life. The problem is that in this modern society, we don’t like the way she got them. We would have told her she needed to find herself, to bemore independent, to look after number one.

But it’s our modern philosophy that landed us where we are. Perhaps it’s time to reaffirm the wisdomwe’ve discarded and the way of life that worked. There’s no mystery about where Grace got her wisdom. It’s just practical Christianity—life lived God’s way.
