Mom Knows Best

Sunday, June 13, 2021

Today I decided to devote some time to those projects that I know are bigger than one session, but can be advanced by doggedly plodding along, doing a little at a time.

You may remember that my mother had been keeping a small notebook in which she had recorded thoughts, scripture, and quotations that she wanted to pass on… (my mother’s little notebook)

Today I worked on deciphering her handwriting in the parts that I hadn’t gotten to, and typing it up so that SOMEDAY I can print it up for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren….

It is full of wisdom, and I loved reading her wit and wisdom….

A sample:
One page read:
A hug is a great gift …
One size fits all, it can be given for any occasion, and often meets a real need.

Another page:
Do you not feel totally personally irrevocably responsible for everything. That’s my job.
Love, God

“Never buy more field then you can plow!” Old farmers saying.

“We are always being pressured to take on more than we can handle. If God calls, that is one thing -He takes the responsibility for equipping us to do his will. But when we take on more than we can handle, and try to do it in our own strength, we become overwhelmed, depleted, and depressed. We have bought more land than we can plow!”
