Things I Think I've Begun to Learn...

8/3/2001

I’ve learned—that no matter how good a friend is, there will be hurt once in a while and we must all overlook or forgive, and go on. Life is too short to do otherwise.

I’ve learned—that true friendship and love continues to grow, even over the longest distance.

I’ve learned—that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I’ve learned—that it’s taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I’ve learned—that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I’ve learned—that you can keep going long after you can’t.

I’ve learned—that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I’ve learned—that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I’ve learned—that regardless of how exciting a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something higher that it is built upon.

I’ve learned—that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I’ve learned—that money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I’ve learned—that in Jesus we can do anything or nothing together, and have the best time.

I’ve learned—that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down, will be the only ones to help you get back up.

I’ve learned—that sometimes when I’m angry for something about Jesus and His Truths, I have the right to be angry—but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.

I’ve learned—that just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.

I’ve learned—that maturity has more to do with consecration to Jesus and what types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them—and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.

I’ve learned—that it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I’ve learned—that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn’t stop for your grief. Don’t expect it. Go forward to serve OTHERS.

I’ve learned—that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I’ve learned—that just because two people butt heads, it doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. And just because they don’t, it doesn’t mean they do.

I’ve learned—that you shouldn’t be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever, and not always as you’d desire. Better to be humble and quiet and keep your nose out of things that you are not invited into. Life is simpler that way. Just love and want the best for others, and keep the animal of self-life out of it. Love in peace.

I’ve learned—that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I’ve learned—that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don’t even know you.

I’ve learned—that even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.

I’ve learned—that credentials on the wall do not make you anything of value, in themselves. Who you ARE is all that matters in the end.

I’ve learned—that the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.
