This was sent to me from a dear friend via email..I don't know who the author is but I love it and just wanted to share it with all of you...life is to short and these are some things we need to remember. This is Excellent! - Wish I could send it to the entire world! So, the best place to start is with friends. 1. The best way to get even is to forget... 2. Feed your faith and your doubts will starve to death... 3. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts... 4. Some folks wear their halos much too tight... 5. Some marriages are made in heaven, but they ALL have to be maintained on earth.... 6. Unless you can create the WHOLE universe in 5 days, then perhaps giving "advice" to God, isn't such a good idea! 7. Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, and faith looks up... 8. Standing in the middle of the road is dangerous. You will get knocked down by the traffic from both ways. 9. Words are windows to the heart. 10. A skeptic is a person who when he sees the handwriting on the wall, claims it's a forgery. 11. It isn't difficult to make a mountain out of a molehill, just add a little dirt. 12. A successful marriage isn't finding the right person; it's being the right person. 13. The mighty oak tree was once a little nut that held its ground. 14. Too many people offer God prayers with claw marks all over them. 15. The tongue must be heavy, indeed, because so few people can hold it. 16. To forgive is to set the prisoner free and then discover the prisoner was you. 17. You have to wonder about humans, they think God is dead and Elvis is alive! 18. It's all right to sit on your pity pot every now and again. Just be sure to flush when you are done. 19. You'll notice that a turtle only makes progress when it sticks out its neck... 20. If the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, you can bet the water bill is higher. You are richer today if you have laughed, given, or forgiven!

I may have seen some of these before but it's always good to be reminded of them. So thank you for posting! I like #12! I don't think I've seen it before but it reminds of something else I read on Care2 once about being the right person to find the right person. All of these should be recited as a mantra until it is committed to your memory and then followed to the letter as much as possible!

I can relate to a lot of these. It is very good advice. If only people would apply at least half of these to their life, the world would be a better place to live in. The one I think I like best, is number 16: To forgive is to set the prisoner free and then discover the prisoner was you.
