Friday Tale ~ Don't Quit
The successful man will profit from his mistakes and try again in a different way.
~ Dale Carnegie
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and its turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When they might have won, had they stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victors cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit!
~ Frank Supovitz
Therefore be all the more diligent to make certain His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble.

To change ones life:
1. start immediately
2. do it joyfully
3. no exceptions.
~ William James
Lay aside the old self, which is being
corrupted ..... and be renewed in the
spirit of your mind, and put on the NEW self,
which in the likeness of God has been
created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.
~ Ephesians 4:22-24

Friday Tale - It's Your Choice
One day, a grandfather told his grandchildren about his journey to America. He told of the trains and ship that he took from his home in Eastern Europe. He told of being processed at Ellis Island and how he had gone to a cafeteria in lower Manhattan to get something to eat. There, he sat down at an empty table and waited for quite some time for someone to take his order. Nobody came. Finally, a woman with a tray full of food sat down opposite him and explained to him how a cafeteria works.
She said, “You start at that end” – pointing toward a stack of trays – “and then go along the food line and pick out what you want. At the other end, they’ll tell you how much you have to pay.’
The grandfather reflected a moment and then said, “I soon learned that’s how everything works in America. Life’s a cafeteria here. You can get anything you want – even very great success – if you are willing to pay the price. But you’ll never get what you want if you wait for someone to bring it to you. You have to get up and get it yourself.”
The difference between where you are and where you want to be can often be summed up in one word: Work.
You get to choose how successful you want to be.
Are you making the right choices?

Elijah came near to all the people and said,
"How long will you hesitate between two opinions?
If the LORD is God, follow Him,
but if Baal, follow him."
BUT as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."
~ 1 Kings 18:21 and Joshua 24:15
