Day 11 "You Can Quote Me "

Some of my favorite sayings .......

" Show beats tell " - I believe that people can say anything. It's what they actually do that makes the difference.

" Slow to anger, quick to mercy "  - It takes a lot for me to get angry. I am more likely to be hurt. But I am quick to forgive, especially if you express regret.

" Live your life as if He is watching....because He is " - I am far from perfect. I do try to live my life in a way that I can be proud of. Many times, when I am thinking something wrong or doing something wrong, I am convicted by the Spirit. I am so blessed to have a conscience. It saves me a lot of trouble.

" She sure can burn a pot "   - The first time I heard this was when  Mr. Mixologist  was talking on the phone to his cousin from New York. It was funny to me because I had never heard it put that way before. Where I come from, we say "she throws down" or "she put her foot in it" to describe a good cook.

" Pain is just weakness leaving your body "  -  Truth right here. Every time I go through life's difficulties, though it might be painful, I come out wiser, stronger and better equipped  to handle the next challenge.

My favorite comes from my daddy. It is: A monkey does not holler until you pull its tail.

That means when a truth is told the offender is the first to jump in to defend their action, reasoning or trying to justify.

Sometimes it is just good to keep quiet.

Hard heads make soft behinds/those who don't hear will feel. My dad used to tell me that every time I was about to get a spanking, lol.

That is how I learned the meaning of consequences, by getting spanked. LOL
