Musing on the story of Mr. and Mrs. Cleopas encountering the risen Jesus as they travelled the dusty road from Jerusalem to Emmaus, I came across this advice from an unexpected source. Charlie Chaplin lived for 88 years and left us the following statement:
- Nothing is for ever in this world, not even our problems.
- I love walking in the rain because no one can see my tears
- The most lost day in life is the day we don’t laugh.
- The six best doctors in the world are:
- The sun
- Self respect
Stick to them at all stages of your life and enjoy a healthy life.
If you see the moon, you will see the beauty of God
If you see the sun, you will see the power of God
If you see a mirror, you will see God’s best creation – so believe it!
We are all tourists. God is our travel agent who has already identified
our routes, bookings and destination. Trust Him and enjoy life.
Life is a journey! Therefore live today! Tomorrow may not be.”
As the chorus of Estelle White’s well loved hymn “Moses, I know you’re the man” says, “So every day we’re on our way, for we’re a travelling, wandering race; we’re the people of God.”
God bless you on your journey with Jesus.
