Life Lessons

Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood. We wake from one dream into another dream. As Elmo puts it. “Nothing walks with aimless feet. It is a very busy world. Flowers are busy, filling all the land with perfume and beauty; birds are busy, filling the air with the music of their happy songs; the fields are busy, waving their golden harvests to provide for man; the seas are busy, bearing on their waves the treasures of all lands; the sun is busy, flooding every day with light; the stars are busy, in their patient shining. And for a man to be idle is to be out of harmony with God and his universe.”  The longer we live, the more I am certain we will see the great difference between those who aimlessly wander through life and the industrious whose invincible determination continue to set goals and ensure they are met, whose purpose once fixed continue upward and onward to reach their ultimate goal.
