Mom's Wisdom

Staring at a blank computer screen
Hypnotized by the blinking cursor
and its calming hum

Today I prayed for inspiration
New words, new thoughts,
new reason to give pause

Across the bottom of the screen
A message flashed
"One new email from Mom"

Prayers answered
Inspiration comes
Author unknown

Everything I need to know, I learned from Noah's Ark

ONE: Don't miss the boat.

TWO: Remember that we are all in the same boat!

THREE: Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.

FOUR: Stay fit. When you're 60 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.

FIVE: Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.

SIX: Build your future on high ground.

SEVEN: For safety's sake, travel in pairs.

EIGHT: Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.

NINE: When you're stressed, float awhile.

TEN: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.

ELEVEN: No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting.

Today I Pray...

...with a peaceful heart,
grateful for the angels that flutter in and out of my life

...ready "to float awhile"
fully aware that at rest
and with a quiet mind
the answers will come
