Lessons I’ve Learned in Life
  1. When you have to spell words, like W.A.L.K., it doesn’t take long and your dog knows what you’re saying.  Turns out, they're smart!   
  2. Arguing with God is not productive.
  3. God loves me.
  4. A scared little kitten has very sharp claws, and can draw a lot of blood.
  5. Putting a paper cup filled with coffee in the microwave is a bad idea.  Keep it in real cups people!
  6. God loves me.  Yea, I know i said that already; but it seems He finds it necessary to keep reminding me.
  7. I am stronger than I thought I was.
  8. Learning new stuff is fun.
  9. No matter how godly a man grows to be, he’s still a man; and ladies, we still can't strangle 'em!
  10. I don’t give myself enough credit for my good points. 
  11. Cheesecake is not the perfect food after all.
  12. God will drop something in front of you as many times as necessary; put you flat on your back to make you listen, or drop it on your head if that’s what it takes to get your attention and make you focus on Him. 
  13. Peace and happiness won’t happen in life until you FULLY repent, forgive, focus on Jesus, and allow Him to change your heart.  Till then you will have traumas, illness, disasters, arguments, relationship problems, money issues, and telemarketers in your life. 
  14. You never know for sure just how far you can go until you make that first step.
  15. You’re never a failure until you fail to keep going.
  16. I would rather go through a long difficult time and come out the other end knowing I pushed my way through it with my own strength, determination, blood, sweat and tears; than to take a short cut.
  17. The value of a good-support underwire bra is priceless.
  18. The only thing more scary than a future inside Bipolar Disorder, is a life without it and being ‘normal’. 
  19. God loves me, enough to change me, put up with me not matter what, and enough that He will never give up on me.  He doesn't change.  Ever!  The rules He started with, are still in effect today.  “I like it this way because it makes me feel comfortable”, will not mean anything when you stand with Jesus on Judgement Day before God, if it doesn't agree with His Word.
  20. If you want to go to Heaven, you have to have a real relationship with Jesus.  Today!  Waiting until you get there, will be too late.  He is as real in your life, home, relationships; as any other family member, and wants to be just as involved!
