Everything I Need To Learn, I Learned From Noah's Ark
I remember when I was younger, the priest in our church patterned his homily after a list of learnings from the Bible (specifically the story of Noah and his ark). He gave away print-outs of those, and I kept mine glued to my journal. Great words to live by. :-)
Eeek! And I did check the Bible and it's true. It didn't bother me (much?) though, hehe! :-)
Well, the good thing about being reminded of the story of Noah's Ark is that it brought back to me the lessons I learned from the priest I was telling you about earlier.
He said that you don't have to know rocket science to be happy and blessed in life. You'll be surprised how simple lessons can change how we view our lives. With that, I am sharing with you -
"Everything I Need To Know, I Learned From Noah's Ark"
1. Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.
2. Stay fit. When you’re 600 years old, someone might ask you to do something REALLY big.
3. Don’t listen to critics — do what has to be done.
4. Build on high ground.
5. For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
6. Two heads are better than one.
7. Speed isn’t always an advantage. The cheetahs were on board, but so were the snails.
8. If you can’t fight or flee — float!
9. Take care of your animals as if they were the last ones on earth.
10. Don’t forget that we’re all in the same boat.
11. When the doo-doo gets really deep, don’t sit there and complain — shovel!!!
12. Stay below deck during the storm.
13. Remember that the ark was built by amateurs and the Titanic was built by professionals.
14. If you have to start over, have a friend by your side.
15. Remember that the woodpeckers INSIDE are often a bigger threat than the storm outside.
16. Don’t miss the boat.
17. No matter how bleak it looks, there’s always a rainbow on the other side.
