“Delay of justice is injustice”

Because sentence against an evil deed is not executed speedily,
the heart of the sons of men is fully set to do evil.

because they fear before him…

Do you know why a car’s WINDSHIELD is so large

        and the rear view mirror is so small?
Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE.
        So, look ahead and move on.

But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and
        reaching forward to what lies ahead,
I press on toward the goal for the prize
     of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:13-14

Recipe for Today

Fold two hands together
And express a dash of sorrow
Marinate it overnight
And work on it tomorrow.

Chop one grudge in tiny pieces
Add several cups of love
Dredge with a large sized smile
Mix with the ingredients above.

Dissolve the hate within you
By doing a good deed
Cut in and help your friend
If he should be in need.

Stir in laughter, love, and kindness
From the heart it has to come
Toss with genuine forgiveness
And give your neighbor some.

The amount of people served
Will depend on you
It can serve the whole wide world
If you really want it to
