    Someone haswritten these beautiful words.
    Read and try to understandthe deep meaning of it.

    They are like the ten commandments to follow in life, all the time.

    1] Prayer is not a"spare wheel" that you pull out when in trouble,
    but it is a "steering wheel" that directs the right path throughout

    2] A car's WINDSHIELDis large and the Rear View Mirror is small. Why?
    Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. Look Ahead and Move on.

    3] Friendship is like aBOOK. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.

    4] All things in life aretemporary. If going well, enjoy it, they will not last forever.
    If going wrong, don't worry, they can't last long either.

    5] Old Friends are Gold! NewFriends are Diamonds! If you get a Diamond,
    don't forget the Gold, because to hold a Diamond, you always need a base ofGold!

    6] Often when we losehope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above
    and says, "Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end!"

    7] When GOD solves yourproblems, you have faith in HIS abilities;
    when GOD doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.

    8] A blind person askedGod: "Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?"
    He replied: "Yes, losing your vision!"

    9] When you pray for others,God listens to you and blesses them. And sometimes,
    when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.

    10]WORRYINGdoes not take away tomorrow's TROUBLES;
    it takes away today's PEACE.

    Very nice -06. Wise words indeed.

    Not to hijack your thread but that kind of reminded me of a Mike Warnke skit. Mike, if you don't know is a Christian comedian from the 70's, 80's. He was talking about prayer and was saying how when things are going good we get a pillow, kneel down beside the bed, fold our hands and pray our best King James prayer "Oh Lordeth, I cometh beforeth thoueth to asketh for thyeth bounteous blessingseth". But when things are going bad we hit our knees in the hallway and slide up to the bed shouting "GOD!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME!!" And he answers "Not me'eth, you'eth!".
