Everything I need to know about life –lessons from Noah’s Ark

  1. Don’t miss the boat
  2. Remember we are all in the same boat
  3. Plan ahead – it wasn’t raining when Noah started building
  4. Stay fit. Someone may ask you to do something really big
  5. Don’t listen to critics, Just get on with the job that needs doing
  6. Build your future on high ground
  7. For safety’s sake travel in pairs
  8. Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs
  9. The Ark was built by amateurs. The Titanic by professionals
  10. No matter the storm , when you are with God there is always a rainbow waiting

       (UNKNOWN. ‘borrowed’ from assorted church magazines )

                        A Haven in the Storm                         

  I do not know what life may hold, if good or ill I’ll see.   What twists and turns may yet unfold what trials yet might be.                                                                                                                     I cannot see if light will shine or darkness fall once more, what destiny might still be mine what future lies in store.                                                                                               But even if the way is tough and storms begin to blow, the gales prove strong, the water rough . one thing Lord I still know,                                                                                                that you’ll be there, supporting me, a faithful, loving guide -  A constant help who will not fail to strengthen and provide.                                                                                                                 I have no need to ask for more nor any cause to fear: Whatever life may hold for me I know that you’ll be near.
