Neither Juan Ponce de Leon not Mrs. Jane Doe ever found the fountain of youth.

The snake oil sold by Mr. Chara Ton was a          dreamer’s sham.

Losing weight won’t do it, even if you appear on the face of Playboy or Playgirl.

Cover Girl, Essential Oils, or Nordic products won’t achieve it.

Soloman didn’t find it in wealth, construction, women, or knowledge.

Midas didn’t find it in gold.


To find Elixir, don’t seek neither wealth, youth, nor fame, seek contentment for now and faith for the eternal.

“True contentment depends not upon what we have; a tub was large enough for Diogenes, but a world was too little for Alexander.”  Charles Caleb Colton

Philippians 4:11-13 “Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am….”  Apostle Paul

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me.

    Seek no more
    The earthly wealth
    There lies the secret
    To good mental health
    The elixir that illudes all
    Fountain of youth
    Pot of gold at end of the rainbow
    Con men talking smooth
    The key is in your hands
    Look no further
    But look inwards
    Will find peace reigning there

    Very nice. I agree completely. Only you did not identify “peace;” otherwise known as Jesus, Prince of Peace. ☺☺☺
