Wear the world like a loose garment.

Monday Thoughts

The above sentence was one of the "sayings" that my mother often said.

The above saying still comes to my mind multiple times a year and helps me through situations.

When I think about that wisdom, it calms me and directs me toward God and his Word.

I researched the saying before I posted this page, and apparently my mother's saying is part of a quote from St. Francis of Assisi.

“Wear the world like a loose garment

which touches you in a few places and there lightly.”

St. Francis of Assisi


Everyone is strange but me and thee

and sometimes thee.

Tuesday Thoughts

The above sentence was also one of the "sayings" that my mother taught me.

That saying has helped me to look at others in a softer fashion.

It reminds me that we all are peculiar and perplexing sometimes - even me.


Inch by inch, it's a cinch.

Yard by yard, it is hard.

Wednesday Thoughts

I have a close friend named Ora Mosley who often uses the above saying to interject fresh motivation and wisdom into a situation.

From her influence, I now often find myself using that powerful saying to counteract discouragement and promote a godly zeal toward difficult situations.

Action Prayer

Dear Lord,

I realize that words are powerful.

I ask that you would remind me

to spend some time finding

and memorizing

some wise sayings

that will motivate me toward godly action.

In Jesus' name I pray,

Oh what a tangled web we weave,

when first we practice to deceive.

Thursday Thoughts

When I was young, I heard that saying often - especially  from my teachers in elementary school.

It was a saying that every child knew and every child had contemplated to one degree or another.

Our teachers -  and most parents and adults -  were determined to instruct us early in life to the snares created from lying. 

I haven't heard that saying expressed anywhere in 25 to 30 years. 

I have only heard one sermon about lying in my entire lifetime. 

Is it any wonder that lying is becoming so common place?

Thank you for joining me this week.
