It’s Ain’t Over, Till It’s Over

This morning I played my usual morning game of spider solitaire as I waited for my internet to connect and my brain to wake up.  The game did not start out very promising, and it appeared that I would be lucky to get anything cleared off at all.  Then with the last set of cards, the pieces slowly started to come together.  One by one, moves were made, and the game was won.  I was pleasantly surprised and once again reminded that it ain’t over, till it’s over.

Actually, I thought about that last night as I watched the last portion of the final debate.  Certainly, it looks pretty good for Obama right now, but it’s ain’t over yet.

In my own life, I am reminded that I should never give up on the hopes, dreams, and goals that I have in my own heart.  It ain’t over yet.

There may be a time when we need to adjust, change or postpone our goals.  There is a difference between quitting and redirecting, as long as the redirection is a conscious decision, made after careful analasis.

As a marine, we were taught that we should never surrender while we have the means to resist, and that meant, if we were still conscious, we could still resist, using any and every means at our disposal. 

Never quit.

Never give up.


That’s a pretty good lesson for life.

    reminds me of a sermon I heard once. Plod on, plod on, plod on.

    Marv, You’re right, I don’t think that we will see that information on TV. I also wonder how many people know what kind of disgusting material has been funded by our tax dollars through the NEA.

    Gloria, I also remember that famous sermon.
