Things that make you go....hmmmm

Knowing I had posted something on my facebook page so I could find it again, I went 'a-scrolling' down my page. Have you ever done that? It is an interesting trip down memory say the least! However, I began finding little nuggets of wisdom (not me!) I had posted from others. 

Here are just a few that stood out (first one is by yours truly because sometimes Mother's Day is hard):

Happy Mom's Day to all the moms. Just a reminder to be sensitive to those who want to be moms but are unable, those who are single, those who have kiddos in heaven, and those whose moms are no longer with is a tough day sometimes/some years. If you know someone who is "like a mom", let her know how special she is to you and/or your kids.

 “For the rest of your life, there are going to be windows, Ellie. Some are going to lead to places you shouldn't be, and some are going to lead to a more beautiful view. I can’t open them for you and I can’t tell you which ones you are supposed to open. But He can, and He will. Your job is to know Him well enough to hear Him, and to be constant in obeying Him.” ~author Angie Smith talking to her 10 yo daughter who had just climbed out a window and onto a roof to retrieve a necklace.

 "Mister Rogers was an ordained minister, but he never talked about God on his program. He didn't need to."~~Tom Brokaw

"We can’t solve problems for others. We can introduce them to the Lord." ~~Corrie Ten Boom

"What someone says can only hurt you if you start thinking it yourself." ~~Cj Darlington Ties That Bind

"Always keep eternity before them. Think of eternity — and live backwards from that.
Don’t waste a minute of your life on anything less than eternity — and that’s. what. love is. Eternal, without end. Let love happen to you. Don’t fight the hurt. It’s making you real." ~~Ann VosKamp

"So what about being a leader and setting the example? Isn’t that a good thing? Isn’t that what parents and youth leaders tell students all the time?
 The more I think about it, the more I believe this well-meaning statement is not only a manipulative way to try to control our daughters’ behavior, but can also be dangerous to their spiritual health. When we tell her to be an example, we may as well just hand her a mask right there – Here. Hide behind this. Don’t let them see you struggle." ~~ Emily P Freeman

What do you think? Which quote stood out the most or spoke in deafening volume to you?
