A Bit of Wisdom from a Cinema Classic

I was watching The Sound of Music with my niece yesterday morning while we were waiting to get ready for Hannah's party. (We had a great time and I will be posting pictures from it later today!)

What a great movie! I grew up watching it and I am so happy that my niece, Madi, enjoys it as much as I did when I was her age. She spent about ten minutes yesterday singing "I am 16 going on 17, I am 16 going on 17, I am 16 going on 17" over and over after that song. She only knows a few words, but it has definitely made an impression!

But one of the first songs in the movie has a line in it that is so full of truth and wisdom that it could be straight out of Proverbs! Maria is giving herself a pep-talk as she is on her way to start her new job. If you don't know what her new job is, go watch the movie, NOW! It is greatness!

She says:

Strength doesn't lie in numbers.
Strength doesn't lie in wealth.
Strength lies in nights of peaceful slumber.

Can I get an Amen?!

I sure could use one of those!
