Life’s Traffic Lights

There are times in life where we will have to make stops, slow down, or continue to move on. No matter what, as we live our lives, choices based on the colors of these lights will have to be made.

Another red light has come for this blog, and I want to thank everyone who joined me by reading, commenting, or liking what was written. I greatly appreciate it. 🙂 Thank you so much.

Just a few quotes before I go.

“Your view of life will determine your view of God. Your view of God will determine your view of life.” Pastor Tony Evans

“Better to write for yourself and have no public than write for the public and have no self.” Cyril Vernin Connolly

Make Grammar like a second language. (lesson learned)

“You shall judge of a man by his foes as well as by his friends.” from Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The simple believes every word, but the prudent man looks well to his going.” Proverbs 14 vs 15

“Let us learn to show our friendship for a man when he is alive and not after he is dead.” from The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

And remember life is more than learning, enjoy it as well. 🙂

Only God Can Judge Me

Last year someone I know about was doing something wrong. That person was called out on it, and what was the response? “Only God can judge me.” That got me thinking; well a lot of things get me thinking. 🙂

If we tell someone that he/she is doing something wrong, does it mean that we are judging them? But if we do not say anything, does it mean that we are condoning what they are doing?

I believe that using that line of the title of this post was and still is a cop out; a poor excuse for not wanting to hear the truth about what was being done wrong. Yes, wrong. When face with reality, suck it up and do not try to turn on the person and/or people who are trying to help; who are not being judgmental or wagging their fingers at you while saying, “Na, Na, Na, Boo, Boo.”

Only God can judge you, well ultimately, . . . he will.
