Point to Ponder

OK, we sell them but why do people buy them?
"There are so many beautiful reasons to be happy"
If we put "There are so many reasons to be miserable" would it sell?  Would either change your life? I ponder on this as on facebook I am constantly receiving such sayings in poster form.  Some make no sense and appear to be from those who dwell in the land of fantasy others are instantly forgotten.  Do such sayings ever change a persons life?
Some put up biblical sayings or quotes from biblical authors, all good and well but what if four people post and the quotes blot out each other?  Do they fit my day or anyone else's day?  Are they thought out or just found interesting?  Have they changed my life?
You see written signs in shops, pubs, restaurants and elsewhere sometimes written on T-shirts or jackets for no good reason, some tattooed onto a back or leg belonging to those who's brain fell out at birth. 
I like reading, I used to read sauce bottles at table as mum would not allow anything else but really must we have such slogans that mean nothing everywhere?
(I have not shown others we now sell, you just would not believe them!)

I too see this rubbish on FB...who are those who post it trying to kid...themselves or others?
And I am certainly not buying such rubbish.
Still, I suppose the museum knows its clients best....

I guess people needed to be reminded, particularly these days when all they appear to be interested in are their mobile phones, iPods or the like.

Fly, Shall I start posting them here...?

Lee, They read them on their phones and forget immediately.

Since our Heavenly Father started making Himself real to me, He made me more and more aware of Him seeking to communicate with us in a myriad of ways--even those that we would naturally consider as having nothing to do with Spiritual Truths. Be assured that this includes sayings that are the polar opposite of what our Heavenly Father actually says is absolutely true. So, nothing should ever be taken too much for granted. What He wants is for us to want to be in constant contact with Him and truly listening to what He wants to personally teach us.
