Thought for the Day 12/28/2017



TIME
I've only just a minute forced upon me, can't refuse it.
But it's up to me to use it. Give an account if I abuse it.
Only sixty seconds in it. Didn't seek it, didn't choose it,
I must suffer if I lose it, Just a tiny little minute.
~Dr. Benjamin E. Mays

Walk in wisdom toward outsiders,  
    making the best use of the time.    
~Colossians 4:5

Thought for the Day 12/27/2017



The only person you should try to be better than
           is the person you were yesterday.
~Matty Mullins

One day spent in your temple is better than 
 a thousand anywhere else; I would rather  
   stand at the gate of the house of my God  
     than live in the homes of the wicked. 
~Psalm 84:10

Thought for the Day 12/26/2017



Somehow, not only for Christmas
       but all the long year through,
The joy you give to others
      is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing
      the poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart's possessing
       returns to you glad.
~John Greenleaf Whittier 

You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing...
 You have taken away my clothes of mourning,
   and clothed me with joy. 
~Psalm 30:11
