this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. Ya know, the question
which Glenda asks Dorothy before her ruby slippers can bring her back
to Kansas is one I’ve asked myself when trying to understand my own
dramas. "Dorothy, what have you learned?" "Well, I guess it
wasn't enough just to want to see Uncle Henry and Auntie Em and its if
I ever go looking for my heart's desire, I'll look no further than my
own back yard because if it isn't there I never really lost it to begin
with. Is that right?" "That's right, now those magic
slippers will take you home in two seconds.” The scarecrow says,
"That's so easy. I could've told her myself.” Wise
Glenda replies, "No, she had to learn it for herself."
certainly can learn from what others experience but life’s lessons
never seem to hit “home” until we’ve learned them for ourselves.
Glenda may have been wise but Jesus is the way and Truth and without
Him we’ll always be lost...everyday.
