For now, I want to write that the only way I am going to be able to keep going on Xanga is as follows:
I want to keep my posts as short as possible. This means that I will not be posting much about my life, activities, challenges, etc. If I get started on those, it will result in longer posts. In the course of living my life and life's activities, I do not feel the need to write about them all, and don't want to take the time to do so. Therefore, for the time being, I want to return to the series I began and from which I got sidetracked, "Proverbial Wisdom". When that is complete or maybe in connection with it, I may post a quote and/or a joke that I have received via e-mail or read elsewhere.
Also, I may not be able to get around to commenting on subs' posts, but I will try. I have set up my alerts so that a Daily Digest of posts comes to my e-mail, but they arrive the day after they are online. I have an opportunity to read before going online. However, depending on the length of the post and my time constraints, I may not be able to focus on the entire content of the post, and I may not comment right away. Also, as previously mentioned, my priority for commenting on posts is reserved for those who have been fairly regular in commenting on my site.
"PROVERBIAL WISDOM" CONTINUED, CHAPTER 18:
Well, the previous chapter 17 was full of bits of wisdom. I find chapter 18 to be so full of wisdom and truths about life, so I recommend reading the entire chapter in some version. Because it is in contemporary English, I tend to prefer Good News Bible: Today's English Version. Here are samples of the gems therein; but there are so many, so I will stay with chapter 18 for succeeding posts for awhile:
"Sin and shame go together. Lose your honor, and you will get scorn in its place." (verse 3)
"Gossip is so tasty--how we love to swallow it." (verse 8)
"Listen before you answer. If you don't, you are being stupid and insulting." (verse 13)
Paraphrase of "most interesting man" commercial: "Stay thirsty (for wisdom), my friends."
~~Peace, Joy, Prayers 'n Love, Donna
