In a couple of weeks, I’ll post my 500th blog. I’m constantly humbled by the number of folks who read what we write and constantly amazed at how God keeps showing us stuff to share. But today, in the heat of the summer, I thought it would be fun to share something completely different. Enjoy!
The Wisdom of Will Rogers
Don’t squat with your spurs on.
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier ‘n puttin’ it back in.
If you’re ridin’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then, to make sure it’s still there.
If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around.

It don’t take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.
Always drink upstream from the herd.
When you give a lesson in meanness to a critter or a person, don’t be surprised if they learn their lesson.
When you’re throwin’ your weight around, be ready to have it thrown around by somebody else.

We know Jesus had a sense of humor . . . children aren’t attracted to ‘prunes’ nor ‘prudes’ and they loved Him. So stop taking yourself so seriously. Maybe it’s time for a break. Loosen up a little, laugh a lot and enjoy what God has given you.
