Secular Sayings

Often we are prone to give away to pithy secular sayings when in a trying time.

They become a somewhat mainstay in our life. We hope they will give us a little rebound and improve our status. They are tried and proven sayings for every event; some encourage; some are designed as a caution.

How about this one “There is no such thing as a free lunch.” It surely strikes fear into you when you are about to make an important deal.

One I would like to focus on is FOUND ON “GOODNESS GRACIOUSNESS.”

"The Best Things in Life are Free"

In a world that seems crazily hungering for things, possessions, and stuff, I thought I would list some of the best things in life... The things that are free!

Smiles, compassion, bed time stories, Sunday breakfasts, honesty, friends, hugs, support, kindness, a walk on a beach, growing, belief, glimpsing a sunrise, holding a new born baby, comfort, shooting stars, listening to the wisdom of our elders, seeing a butterfly, calling a sibling, breathing deeply, looking into the eyes of our beloved, singing happy birthday, gratitude, passion, coloring with a child, the flickering of fireflies, listening to awaken us to dawn, hope, standing up for something good, caring, sunsets, sharing a poem, good memories, learning something, forgiveness, lovely dreams, laughter, tenderness, love songs, decency, a pat on the back, sharing a special treat, sleeping in a soft bed, family, acceptance, accomplishment, sitting by a fire in winter, finding a seashell, dedication to a cause, moonlight, compassion, finding animals in the clouds, listening to the questions of a child, clear water, family dinners, bubble baths, children's recitals, flowers, love making, fancy chocolates, silence, snow angels, starfish, dancing, devotion, making a difference, God’s salvation.

I thought that was a pretty good list. Perhaps you can add some of your own the main thing is not to ignore and to fail to appreciate these gifts.

Many times we live our lives in a way where we focus on the negative things that come along and forget that always waiting in the wings are the best things and that they are free.
