If we could push ajar the gates of life and stand within, and all God's workings see. We might interpret all this doubt and strife and for each mystery find a key.

As a child I remember hearing my granny and the older ladies say, "keep on living," in response to nagging questions by us children.  I never understood that but I have kept on living. Other sayings I heard were: "Don't take my kindness for weakness. If you lie down with dogs, you will get up with fleas.

You must trust Jesus to try him. Every whisperer is a liar. Every liar is a thief. Every thief goes to jail. Don't be iffy about Jesus, he can do anything. Jesus keep me near the cross. He can fix it watch and see. Wear this world like a loose garment. You can't beat God giving. Giving honor to God, who is the author and finisher of my faith. This too shall pass, When in doubt shout. Blood will tell. Birds of a feather flock together and on." Let me hear from you about your childhood phrases.  E-mail me if you have some from your granny, aunts, or the women in your life used to used.
