PAPER LANTERNS 20


PAGE 1

WE SHOULD THINK OF LIFE
AS A TRUSTED CO-MISSION,
DESERVING OUR BEST.

WHEN WE CHOOSE TO BE
PARTNERS WITH THE LORD,
HE WILL GUIDE THE WAY.

THE WAY HAS MANY
TESTS, BUT IT ALSO BRINGS US
MANY TRUE REWARDS.

PAGE 2

WHEN WE LEARN HOW TO
REJOICE IN THE JOURNEY, WE
HAVE MORE ZEST FOR IT.

WHEN WE CAN'T REACH THE
"EXPERTS", TAKE IT TO THE "FOLKS",
AS JESUS CHRIST DID.

MORAL COMPROMISE,
IS NOT COMPROMISE. IT IS
MORAL SUICIDE.

PAGE 3

TRICKING THE TRICKSTER,
IS NOT CONSIDERED TO BE
A REAL VICTORY.

ADOPTING THE WAYS
OF THE ADVERSARY, IS
TO BECOME LIKE THEM.

THE LORD CALLS US TO
A VICTORY OF CONSCIENCE,
THAT LEAVES OUR SOUL CLEAN.

PAGE 4

OUR BURDEN OF WRONG
CAN BE LIFTED, WHEN WE KNOW
WE NEED THE LORD'S HELP.

NAUGHTY AND HAUGHTY,
ARE TWO SIDES OF A COIN THAT
HAS NO REAL VALUE.

A BAD ATTITUDE,
GAINS NO ALTITUDE, AND ENDS
WAY "DOWN IN THE DUMPS".

PAGE 5

ADMISSION OF WRONG,
AND DESIRE NOT TO REPEAT,
IS TRUE REPENTANCE.

"SORRY I GOT CAUGHT",
IS NOT THE TRUE REMORSE THAT
LEADS TO TRUE REFORM.

DOES NOT ANY GOOD
FATHER CORRECT HIS CHILDREN,
BECAUSE HE LOVES THEM ?

PAGE 6

IF THE LORD INVESTS
IN US, IS IT NOT RIGHT THAT
WE INVEST IN HIM ?

ANXIETY IS
A THIEF OF ENERGY WHEN
IT IS MOST NEEDED.

"MISSION" COMES TO A
PERSON. LATER, THE PERSON
BECOMES THE "MISSION".

PAGE 7

THOUGH WE MAY FEEL LOST,
WE ARE ON GOD'S G.P.S.
HE KNOWS WHERE WE ARE.

NO PATH TO GLORY
IS ALWAYS GLORIOUS, IT
REQUIRES ENDURANCE.

IF GLORY IS OUR
GOAL , WE WILL BECOME ITS SLAVES.
JUST GOD WEARS IT WELL.

PAGE 8

A MANTLE OF TRUE
DEDICATION, IS OUR BEST
FORM OF APPAREL.

NOT ONLY BULLS AND
BEARS, PLAY THE MARKET; ALSO
THE FOXES FEED THERE.

GYMNASIUMS OF
COMMERCE, ARE WHERE WE CAN BUILD
STRENGTH OF CHARACTER.

PAGE 9

IF GOOD HABITS ARE
OUR FIRST LIFE-GOAL, THEN OTHER
GOALS WILL REFLECT THAT.

GOOD HABITS HELP US
THROUGH LIFE'S PROBLEMS; WITHOUT THEM,
WE ARE LIFE'S PROBLEMS.

WITHOUT GOOD CARE OF
OURSELVES, WE WON'T BE ABLE
TO CARE FOR OTHERS.

PAGE 10

A PARADOX IS :
THE MORE INCLUSIVE WE ARE;
THE FEWER OUR FRIENDS.

A SOCIAL FACT IS :
GREGARIOUS OFTEN MEANS
GROUPIE ATTITUDE.

GREAT MINDS ARE OFTEN
LONELY MINDS, BECAUSE FEW CAN
BE AS INCLUSIVE.

PAGE 11

THE MORE INCLUSIVE
WE BECOME, THE MORE OTHERS
WILL SEPARATE US.

INCLUSIVENESS DOES
NOT MEAN A BLIND ACCEPTANCE,
BUT AN INNER VIEW.

BY INCLUSIVENESS
IS MEANT: A BROADER VIEW OF
A HIGHER PURPOSE.

PAGE 12

GOD SPECIALIZES.
WE ARE EACH UNIQUE, , BUT NONE
OF US ARE ALONE.

INDIVIDUAL
NATURE IS INTENDED TO
COMPLETE, NOT COMPETE.

WHEN GOD HAS FIT US
TOGETHER AS HE INTENDS
IT'S THE BIG PICTURE !

PAGE 13
OLD FOLKS KNOW IT, AND
YOUNG FOLKS HAVE YET TO LEARN IT:
WE'RE ALWAYS STUDENTS.

BULLIES DON'T MAKE GOOD
TEACHERS; NOR DO WIMPS, BUT FIRM,
PATIENT, KIND WAYS DO.

GOD SEEMS TO LOVE US
WITH LESSONS, BECAUSE HE KNOWS
NEED COMES BEFORE WANT.

PAGE 14

WHEN DISCERNMENT IS
CALLED INTOLERANCE, NEXT COMES
DEGENERATION.

EXPERIENCE WILL
TEACH DISCERNMENT, BUT JUDGEMENT
WILL REMAIN WITH GOD.

A COMPASSIONATE
WISDOM IS DiSCERNING, BUT
IS NOT JUDGEMENTAL.

PAGE 15

SILENT NUANCES
OF MOTIVE AND ATTITUDE
QUALIFY OUR ACTS.

SPROUT RISING TO
AIR,WOULD BE LIKE US PUSHING
A BOULDER UPHILL.

A MIRACLE LIES
IN A SEED UNFOLDING ITS
HIDDEN POTENTIAL.

PAGE 16

WORSE THAN MALE BULLIES,
ARE THE FEMALE BULLIES, WHO
BETRAY WOMANKIND.

A WOMAN BULLY,
MANIPULATES IN SECRET,
WHICH DOUBLES THE WRONG.

THE DIFFERENCE IN
MASTERY AND WITCHCRAFT IS,
METHOD AND MOTIVE.

PAGE 17

METHOD AND MOTIVE
MUST BE DEDICATED, TO
DO WORKS IN RIGHT USE.

PROBLEMS OF WRONG USE
ARE; HAVING TO RE-DO, OR
GETTING ARRESTED.

TAKING THE TIME TO
LAY A STRONG FOUNDATION, WILL
PROTECT A PROJECT.

PAGE 18

IF MOTIVE IS WRONG,
METHOD WILL NOT MAKE IT RIGHT.
NOR VICE VERSA.

MOTIVE AND METHOD,
ARE MUTUALLY INVOLVED
IN ANY ACTION.

MOTIVE QUALIFIES,
AND METHOD DEFINES PROCESS:
TWO SIDES OF ONE COIN.

PAGE 19

LOYALTY IS AN
INHERENT TRAIT OF THOSE WHO
HAVE GOOD CHARACTER.

THERE IS A STRONG ROOT
OF NOBILITY IN THOSE
WHO LIVE BY "TRIED FAITH".

ONLY TRIALS ENDURED
IN FAITH, CAN BRING US TO THE
REWARDS OF "TRIED FAITH".

PAGE 20

A LIFE TOTALLY
DEDICATED, IS ALWAYS
LIKE A CATALYST.

A MYSTERY IS
THAT, AT SOME POINT, THE CROSS WILL
BECOME THE MANTLE.

SIMPLE AT THE CORE,.
IS A GREAT GIFT OF THOSE WHO.
HAVE SURVIVED LIFE'S STORMS...
