Pearl of Wisdom #19: “What to Value?” Ralph R.

June 22, 2011

Lesson learned: Suzanna J. wanted to share something special with me, an essay that her father had written many years ago, which appeared in a book entitled “This I Believe” edited by Edward R. Murrow. As she read her father’s words with the warmth and inflection of a seasoned actress, I began to take notes. The highlights of this inspirational story appear below.

What to Value? Take time before time takes you. Each day is precious. When the sun comes up you have 24 hours to fill, not pass. Listen to the wind in the trees and look at the sunlight on the water. Make the most of it! Be grateful! God made this world – a place of beauty and wonder. Take time to absorb the beauty and wonder. From the heart – give thanks!
