As Spokesperson for the Spine Health Foundation, and advocate for helping those in need, I would like to extend my sincerest thanks and heartfelt love to everyone who has dedicated their time, money or services to someone in need this past year. May everyone have a BLESSED CHRIST MAS AND ENJOY THE HOLY DAYS! I have included select pertinent "thoughts" on which to ponder from "those" much wiser than I...
"The FIRST step in the acquisition of wisdom is silence. The SECOND listening, the THIRD memory, the FOURTH practice, the FIFTH teaching others." (Solomon Ibn Gabirol)
"Light exists inside a person of light and he shines on the whole world. If he does not shine, there is darkness." (Gospel of Thomas: 24)
"For Your eyes are open to this house night and day, toward the place of which You have said, My name shall be there; to listen to the prayer which Your servant prays toward this place. And You shall listen to the supplication of Your servant, and Your people Israel, when they shall pray toward this place; Yea, You shall listen in Your dwelling place, in Heaven; and You shall hear and shall forgive." (I Kings 8:29 KJV, King Solomon)
"I have hallowed this house that you have built to My name there forever; and My eyes and My heart shall be there forever." (I Kings 9:3 KJV)
"Hard work spotlights the character of people; some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all." (Sam Ewing)
Wishing you and your families a heartfelt Christmas!
