Words on Marble - A collection of Quotes - page 2

Man is like a pencil in the hand of God. Therefore, why all the wahala. The killings, greed, hatred, corruption, avarice, suspicions etc. The owner of the universe can switch off now and every system will collapse. 
Man! rethink and digest the fact that we are just on a space trip. Try to appreciate your Creator!!

Benjamin Uyanwune, Swimming Pool Maker
~Amikwo Awka, Nigeria.

"Men are so worried that marriage will leave them with “only one woman” for the rest of their lives. That’s simply not true. I fell in love with a 19-year-old rock climber, married a 20-year-old animal lover, started a family with a 24-year-old mother, then built a farm with a 25-year-old homemaker, and today I’m married to a 27-year-old woman of wisdom. If your mind is healthy, you’ll never get tired of “one woman”. You’ll actually become overwhelmed with how many beautiful versions of her you get to marry over the years. Don’t say no to marriage, say yes and keep saying yes until the day you die."
Dale Partridge

Helen Keller
1880-1968, Blind/Deaf Author and Lecturer

"You'll seldom experience regret for anything that you've done. It is what you haven't done that will torment you. The message, therefore, is clear. Do it! Develop an appreciation for the present moment. Seize every second of your life and savor it. Value your present moments. Using them up in any self-defeating ways means you've lost them forever."
Wayne Dyer
Author and Speaker


Once he survives the night, he is a MAN

By Utchay Lugar - Ghana
12th March, 2017

*Horrific Story*

A father takes his son into the forest, blindfolds him and leaves him alone. He is required to sit on a stump the whole night and not remove the blindfold until the rays of the morning sun shine through it. He cannot cry out for help to anyone. Once he survives the night, he is a MAN. He cannot tell the other boys of this experience, because each lad must come into manhood on his own. The boy is naturally terrified. He can hear all kinds of noises. Wild beasts must surely be all around him .

Perhaps even some human might do him harm. The wind blew the grass and trees and shook his stump, but he sat stoically, never removing the blindfold. It would be the only way he could become a man! Finally, after a horrific night the sun appeared and he removed his blindfold. It was then that he discovered his father sitting on the stump next to him. He had been at watch the entire night, protecting his son from harm. We, too, are never alone. Even when we don't know it, God is watching over us, sitting on the stump beside us. When trouble comes, all we have to do is reach out to Him.

Moral of the story:
Just because you can't see God, doesn't mean He is not there."For we walk by faith, not just by sight".

Have a great walk with God today and always. Smiling face with smiling eyes.

Christmas Quotes !

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. ~Norman Vincent Peale

Christmas is a time when you get homesick - even when you're home.

~Carol Nelson

He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.

~Roy L. Smith
Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.
~Mary Ellen Chase

I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.

~Charles Dickens
Christmas is the gentlest, loveliest festival of the revolving year - and yet, for all that, when it speaks, its voice has strong authority.
~W.J. Cameron

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. ~Burton Hillis

Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!

 ~Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers, 1836


Excerpts from Pastor Chris’ Teaching! 
~Christ Embassy.Org Online Missions

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
Husband does not mean the male partner in a marriage, husband means master. The reason for most problems in Christian marriages is the fact that women refute God’s definition of marriage and form theirs. 

They believe they are equal partners. If most women had their fathers bold enough to talk to them, they will be very successful in their marriage and they will be very happy people. Most women have never been taught by their parents, their fathers particularly and that’s their biggest problem because they don’t know who a man is, they think he is another woman. 

In marriage, you have the man who is the head of that union and because he’s the head of that union, its important to understand him. You think he’s the one that needs to understand his wife and that is where you are wrong. 
He will eventually but you have to know the type of man you are married to and his needs.When you say you are marrying a man, you are coming under his authority. 
The Bible says, the man is the head of the woman (1 Corinthians 11:3) so when you marry him you come under his authority, you are not authority sharers even though you are both heirs to the kingdom of God.When you decide not to subject yourself to that authority, you are a rebel and God is not going to accept what you are doing because you are not functioning correctly. 

Why did God make the woman? Making woman was not God’s original plan because after God created Adam and before He made Eve, He said in Genesis 1:31 “Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good”. 
God made woman because of man so woman was not His original idea. This is reality.Genesis 2:18a “And the Lord God said “for it is not good for a man to be alone..” The Bible didn’t say “lonely” but “alone”. 

There is a big difference. Man wasn’t lonely but alone. Genesis 2:18b “…I will make him an help meet”. He didn’t say a partner or a supervisor or a special advisor or someone to tell him what to do.
I will make him someone to help him. God gave man a responsibility so woman was made to help man achieve that responsibility. If this is understood in every home then you won’t have problems.

The paradox of our time in history

A Message by George Carlin:
Sent by DIEN GODWIN - Nigeria

"Isn't it amazing that George Carlin - comedian of the 70's and 80's - could write something so very eloquent...and so very appropriate".  - Dien Godwin

George Carlin
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways , but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

Motivational words

Tears are a love-mates humble gift When it's time to say goodbye

No matter how far in your marriage you've gone The highway of love has its rules.
The excitement of sex, trust and affection Never tolerates self-serving fools.

I love to be loved in the morning I love to be loved at night.
I love to be loved anytime For love in the darkness is light.

With one foot in the future And one foot in the past Let us try to live our days As though each was our last.

Nations has survived all attempts to destroy Knowing the cruelty of war And,
we who remain Must help keep her free For those who can march no more!

Some have asked why must we study history; It just encourages us to live in the past.
When we forget history we repeat its mistake As the outcome of humanity is cast.

Nothing else man can conceive Is more luring than God's sky.
To be as one with the stars Is the wish of all who fly.

Another day has come and gone Not to return until the dawn.

Eyes that twinkle, I distrust For they are the distant stars.
Eyes in love have a steady glow Like Venus, the Moon or Mars.

What would our world become Without intervention from above?
Angry beings in a revolving cage With no sense of passion or love.

Our soldiers line up to be remembered As the best of the best at their job.

To be part of something greater than themselves They are willing to sacrifice whatever it will take.

After death who will miss us When to heaven we have gone?
Will family cry our name in tears As in their hearts we live on?

When war breaks out, boundaries change And all who die are a token Of the
rage that must run it's course Before words of peace are spoken.

Love, indeed, descends from heaven, Like a shooting star across the sky.
Love sometimes stirs the dust Till tears fall free from the eye.

Those who wish to be, not forgotten, Just days after they're dead and gone
Must write such things worth remembering Or commit acts, worth passing on.

The poet Horace once expressed That roses were worth more than grain
Seed fills a hungry man's stomach Where roses feed his heart and brain.

The Lord planted love within mankind's heart Though things can grow sour when from" Him" we depart.
Love and hate are but two sides of life's golden coin So be ready for both no matter whom you join.

Our conscience makes us righteous It's a whisper of God in man.
For without it we're mere puppets Who dance to the devil's hand.

Most of the time as a politician stands up Along with the truth, their brain sits down.

Love consumes all physical functions Hearing, taste, touch, thought and smell.
It can heal, destroy, weaken or bond Those caught in its presence and spell.

Thank heaven for passion and love Blessings from God to man.

Should tomorrow start without me Be proud I choose to serve
Our faith and our patriotism Earn the freedom we deserve.

No one finds satisfaction from serving themselves Contentment takes place,
by our unselfish concern. The more we repent and regret our wrongs
The more we are able to retain what we learn.
By A. R. Gronos

I'm thankful for all good with which
I've been blessed throughout life.
For hardships, and for heartaches, too,
For failures, trials and strife.
I'm thankful for each little prayer
Someone has said for me;
For loving thoughts, for friendliness,
For all good will I see.
My thanks for hands, with which I could
Scribe someone on life's way;
For all small deeds of kindness
I'm allowed to do each day.
I'm thankful for all happiness,
Each long hour of deep sorrow;
God thus in his great mercy gives
More wisdom for tomorrow.
“Smooth roads never make good drivers. Smooth seas never make good sailors. Clear skies never make good pilots. A problem free life never makes a strong and good person. Have a tough but winning day ahead! Be strong
enough to accept the challenges of life. Do not ask life, 'why me?'
Instead say, 'Try me'."
From - Nain Singh (MONUC)
Make the most of your regrets; never smother your sorrow, but tend and cherish it till it comes to have a separate and integral interest. To regret deeply is to live afresh.
~ Henry David Thoreau quotes
