Proverbs and a Soccer Ball

Here’s an image that will help you to feel the back-and-forth movement of the proverbs. Each one has two parts.   As though your heart has hands, feel each part as though you are tossing a soccer ball back and forth from from one hand to the other.  When you find one that really touches your heart, stop, wait, and let the message of that proverb sink into your soul. What people, places and things in your life do you think about with this proverb?

Write out this proverb and others of your favorites. Place them nearby as though you bump into them throughout your day for refreshing pauses.  What can you do to be creative with these wise sayings that have come down to us from almost three thousand years?
