EVERYTHING I REALLY NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED FROM NOAH'S ARK
from David Sisler
Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the ark. Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone might ask you to do something really big. Don't listen to critics. Just get on with the job which has to be done. Build on the high ground. For safety's sake, travel in pairs. Two heads are better than one. Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board, along with the cheetahs. If you can't fight or flee – float. Don't forget that we're all in the same boat. When the doo-doo gets really deep, don't sit there and complain – shovel! Stay below deck during the storm. Remember that the ark was built by amateurs and the Titanic was built by professionals. If you have to start over, have a friend by your side. Remember that the woodpeckers inside are often a bigger threat than the storm outside. No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting. DON'T MISS THE BOAT!
