‘THINK on THESE THINGS’
By Joyce Sequichie Hifler
If you don’t know what to do about a situation – wait awhile, the answer will come. If weariness overcomes you before you’ve completed a difficult job, wait awhile, you’ll get your second wind.
If you do not agree with someone else’s philosophy, don’t fret, perhaps later you will come to know that the same philosophy can be reached from many different directions.
If you think the activities of another person or group are frivolous and unnecessary, wait a bit, they most likely will feel the same way about you sometime.
If you don’t like what others have to say, wait, they may clarify it – or you may change your mind.
If life hasn’t dished you unhappiness, wait a bit, if you’ve planted any happiness seeds, you will also reap.
We can’t always wait, but sometimes waiting is action, and action of the hardest kind. It is difficult to keep quiet when you have something to say, but it more often saves your face later and sometimes your life.
