“The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.” “By three methods we may learn wisdom:
First, by reflection, which is noblest;
Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
Third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
“Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.”


I’m posting this more for myself than anyone else. This is a song I heard for the first time last year and I tried for the longest to find it or who sang it. I could not remember enough about it to even pull it up online. Last night I heard it on the radio and I gathered enough information to go online and find out more about it. The song is called “What They See is What They’ll Be” by Kathleen Bertrand. It is a very laid back gospel tune but I’m more impressed by the lyrics than anything else. It speaks great wisdom to all of us as we live our lives. You never know whose life you’re impacting each and every day. There are so many people, especially these younger kids, who are so impressionable. Just as the chorus in the song says…”What They See Is What They’ll Be.”
What are you putting in place for them to see???



This morning’s sermon was about wisdom. The pastor spoke about seeking wisdom. I found this quote about wisdom online. It is by Oprah. This is what I call deep………..REAL DEEP…….and yet, it is quite simple.

“From every wound
There is a scar,
And every scar
Tells a story
A story that says
“I have survived”

“Turn your wounds
Into wisdom”

-Oprah Winfrey-
