Bad Stuff
  1. Leopards still don't change their spots.
  2. Logic is a lost skill.
  3. Counting back change is a lost skill.
  4. The cult next door is still the cult next door.
  5. Legalism is as good a reason as any to start a new church.
  6. When someone is not telling you the truth, you won't know the truth.
Good Stuff
  1. Babies still smell good, usually, but if not, that is easily fixed.
  2. You don't need to knead bread dough to make good bread.
  3. Big skies exist in more places than the prairies.
  4. SLR cameras are a techie idiot's dream.
  5. God still reigns.
  6. He even reigns in "all those bad churches out there."
  7. It's wonderful to be free from the "philosophies of men."
  8. Cute, muddy little boys become unshaven, stinky, handsome men.
  9. Life is as good as you make it.
  10. God is not stuck in a box.
  11. A pot of soup is easy and economical.
  12. Honesty and trust is the oil of friendship.
Happy New Year everyone.

Lovely. I'd like to add a few more:
Library books can still carry us away to places new and unexplored.
It costs nothing to be kind.
People are still mostly good and friends can be found in unexpected places.

Happy New Year!

Being that I'm the mother of 4 boys, I love #8 especially. 3 of them are men and they can be stinkers at times! :-)
This was a wonderful post and I'd like to wish you a Happy New Year too!

"Cute, muddy little boys become unshaven, stinky, handsome men."

You made me cry this morning. I have a 2 1/2 year old and a 14 month old boy. It is already going so fast!

"God still reigns"

This made me cry even more. For a lot of reasons...but thank you for the reminder this morning!

"God is not stuck in a box"
Praise the Lord! Amen!

Happy New Year!
