Divine Choices - I Have Learned
(Based on Dick Sutphen)
Life is 10% what happens to you and
90% of how you respond to it.

Learn from the mistakes of others.
You can't live long enough to make them all
yourself.

Following the path of least resistance is what
makes rivers and people crooked.

Your worst days are never so bad that you are
beyond the reach of God's grace.

And your best days are never so good that
you're beyond the need of God's grace.
You can learn new things
any time in your life if you're
willing to be a beginner.

If you actually learn to like
being a beginner, the whole
world opens up to you."
