We will open the book. Its pages are blank.
 We are going to put words on them ourselves.
   The book is called Opportunity, and its first
     chapter is New Year's Day.
-Edith Lovejoy Pierce 

And let us not grow weary of doing good,
 for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
  So then, as we have opportunity,
     let us do good to every one.
-Galatians 6:9-10

Stop telling God how big your storm is -
  instead tell your storm how BIG your GOD is!

 afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and
  awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons,
    your daughters, your wives, and your homes."

Time is the coin of your life.  It is the only coin you have,
  and only you can determine how it will be spent.
Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.
-Carl Sandburg 

Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise,
  BUT as wise.... making the best use of the time,
    because the days are evil.

Thought for the Day 12/27/2016

I am thankful for my struggles, because without them
  I would not have stumbled across my strengths.

For the sake of Christ then, I am content with weaknesses,
 insults, hardships, persecutions and calamities.
   For when I am weak, then I am strong.
-2 Corinthians 12:10

YES. Such a simple word.  Just three letters. YES.
  A simple word can change everything. I have always
   been in awe of Mary's "yes."  By her humble obedience
    to trust in what God was asking. 
What faithfulness! And this was not just some simple request.

   for all the promises of God find their YES in Him.
    That is why it is through Him that we utter
        our Amen to God for His glory!
-2 Corinthians 1:19-20
