Life Lessons from Harry Potter- Part 3

Miscellaneous Truths

“The best of us must sometimes eat our words.” How true, how true! There’s no need to elaborate.

"Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike." Yet another that needs no explanation.

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.” We do often get so caught up in our fantasies and “what ifs” that we forget life in the “nasty now and now,” as our favorite pastor says. However, life isn’t always nasty. There is beauty and there are blessings in all of our days. Author Nancy DeMoss says, “Anything that makes you realize you need God is a blessing.” She’s talking about any pain, any heartache and any other thing that would typically cause you to bury your head and go into “this isn’t happening to me” mode.

Additionally, the Word tells us in several places to be glad in each day. Each day is made by God and we are to rejoice in them all. Take each day as it comes and look for the blessings that surround you. There is no need to dwell on what might have been or what may come. Rejoice and live!
