45 Life Lessons Learned
by Regina Bretts

Here are a few we thought were worth sharing. It seems we learn some things in life only through experience. These are great! If we can live just these 8 alone, life would be much better!

“Life isn’t fair – but it is still good.” So true!

“Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.” Hate only eats YOU up!

“Pay off your credit cards every month.” Finances need to be kept in check.

“Over prepare, then go with the flow.” Be ready
and then be flexible.

“Frame every so-called disaster with these words: In 5 years, will this matter?” Time changes perspective on what is important.

“Forgive everyone everything”. Unforgiveness hurts only you.

“ Get rid of everything that isn’t useful, beautiful, or joyful,” We need to focus on whatever things are good, as it says in the Bible, and stay positive!

“All that matters in the end is that you loved and are loved”.

Prayer & Encouragement
Hi Everyone,
  Where have you ever heard of a three for one deal like this?
 Where can three good things come from one event? I'm talking about the Garage Sale Trail along U.S. 25 this weekend.Right to Life of St. Clair County will have a spot across the road from St. Edwards Parish in the parking lot of the Knights of Columbus meeting Hall. So all we need now is donations to sell.
  The first good is that you can easily part with those useful items you no longer need or want.
  The second good is that someone will purchase your item(s) as cherished treasures that they will be able to use.
  And the third good will be that RTLSSC will benefit from the transaction in our cause to preserve the sanctity of life from conception to natural death.In other words the money will go to help save lives.
So it is truly three goods in one event.
  You can bring your garage sale items (no books, no clothes and no exercise equipment) to the sale site this weekend or you can drop it off at our home (350 Scott rd, Kimball) and we will deliver it to the site for you. You can even call me and let me know you are stopping by at 810-334-0154.
  Thanks so much in advance for helping with our mission to preserve God's great gift of Life!!!
  AMDG (to the greater glory of God)
