Velma, yes, it is beautiful, and incredibly true. Thank you so much for sharing! I think that many of us have bit into the poison apple of wanting, but not needing, and have forgotten the beauty of simple things that mean a life well-lived. Written by Pastor Bob Moorehead back in 1995, article entitled, The Paradox of Our Time. Information submitted to me by Robert Kirkendall, a WordPress author.
George Carlin’s wife died early in 2008 and George followed her, dying in July 2008. It is ironic George Carlin – comedian of the 70’s and 80’s – could write something so very eloquent and so very appropriate. An observation by George Carlin:
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
