I trust that my dogs will sit when I tell them. Except in close proximity to a squirrel. Unless I have a TREAT.
I trust that my cat will not sit when I tell it. Even if I have a treat. I do not have a cat. You cannot trust them.
I trust that my wife likes me. She has since she was 20. I like her too. Since I was 20. She is my first and last wife. This I trust.
I generally want to be liked more than loved. Like is a positive, friendly, warm emotional response.
Love is a commitment. Loyalty in the face of adversity, helpfulness in time of need, courtesy when none should be given, self sacrifice on behalf of the one loved...whether you "liked" that person at the moment...or not.
True friends love you, your acquaintances do not.
Forget it. I will take being loved over being liked. Although I do want to be liked by those I love and those that love me.
These things I trust.
I love my children. I do not always like them. They feel the same way about me. This I trust.
I trust that if I purchase a used car, the results will be excellent. Experience bears this out.
If I recommend a particular used car to my mother-in-law, it will be the worst LEMON ever to wear four wheels. Experience bears this out.
This I trust.
I trust America's founding principles. I know that we as a nation will not always honor those principles or do the right thing.
Yet we have proved over time that we will provide shelter to the oppressed and disadvantaged when the self proclaimed, more enlightened countries have closed their doors.
We are a country that over time corrects her mistakes. May we continue.
I am hopeful.
I trust that if I buy a deluxe snow-blower based on recent humongous storms, that no significant snow accumulation will occur for the next 7 years. That is a worthwhile investment.
I trust that my Sears lawn mower will start as it has for the last 21 years despite neglect and abuse.
If my Sears lawn mower does not start. I will buy another Sears lawn mower. Trust me.
I've discovered that some of the darkest, saddest moments of life contain the most useful, long lasting, even beautiful revelations of underlying truth.
The hurt will linger and often just be hiding. I trust that this will continue to be my experience.
Time does heal. Pain you never thought would relent can diminish. I hope time continues to offer this balm.
God never guaranteed me an easy life, filled with non-stop fun and happiness.
He does offer contentment and comfort in time of sadness in this life and an amazing experience in the next, if I trust His promises and ask for His forgiveness. I trust God.
