Do you read warning labels? I would have to answer with, sometimes I
do and sometimes, I toss them in the trash can, without regard. I
mean seriously, some things are common sense.
I am well aware that I should not blow dry my hair while I am
sleeping. I also realize that I should not drink or taste dish
What I would really find useful would be, warning labels on people.
If I could use my eyes to scan a bar code on someones forehead, that
said for example, ‘This man is very stingy. If you marry him he will
charge you for the toilet paper you use weekly.’ Or, ‘Warning:
becoming friends with this person will give you a lifetime of
happiness.’, life would be a lot less complicated.
Yes, I know, this is impossible, and maybe I would disregard the
warning like I do on my mattress cover label, ‘Do not remove or you
will serve time in prison.’
I believe in fate, and that there are no surprises with God. He
brings some people into our lives to make us grow, and some to help us
make it through another day.
Life can be harsh and cruel sometimes, or it can be the adventure of a
lifetime. Trust God, that he has a perfect reason for everything.
“A man’s conscience, like a warning line on the highway, tells him
what he shouldn’t do – but it does not keep him from doing it.”
Frank Howard Clark
“History is a vast early warning system.”
“Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the
right one so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know
how to be grateful for the gift.”
