The Parable Of The Pencil

A pencil maker told the pencil 5 important lessons just before putting it in the box :

1.) Everything you do will always leave a mark

2.) You can always correct the mistakes you make.

3.) What is important is what is inside of you.

4.) In life , you will undergo painful sharpenings, which will only make you better.

5.) To be the best pencil, you must allow yourself to be held and guided by the hand that holds you.

We all need to be constantly sharpened. This parable may encourage you to know that you are a special person, with unique God-given talents and abilities. Only you can fulfil the purpose which you were born to accomplish.

Never allow yourself to get discouraged and think that your life is insignificant and cannot be changed and, like the pencil, always remember that the most important part of who you are, is what's inside of you and then allow yourself to be guided by the hand of God.

Update On The Dentist ... And Some WWI Family Photos

So here I am again - and as someone asked how the latest dental appointment went I thought I would scribble a post, in case anyone else is keeping up with this epic saga, that is taking longer than "Gone with the Wind"

I have finished the penicillin ... for which I am sure my tummy will be thankful (!), and had more "gunk" inserted in the hole. It was very sore ... so that was annoying. The dentist said I still have a red patch on the inside of my cheek, and on the roof of my mouth. She now wants me to leave it and hopes by Monday it will be finished ... if not ... back for more tests and treatment.

I had a short shift at work today which was nice as I got some actual housework done ... although I also ended up having a snooze when I sat down for a cuppa mid afternoon! (Blaming the pills, not old age!)

I have also uploaded some photos on my pc which are for some icons I am making ... as my theme is WWI.

So wondered if you wanted to see my family (mostly on Mum's side) ....

Hope you are all having a good day.
