Only put off until tomorrow what you
are willing to die having left undone.
~ Pablo Picasso

Come now, you who say "Today or
tomorrow we will go into such and
such a town and spend a year there and
trade and make a profit"-- yet you do
not know what tomorrow will bring.
What is your life? For you are a mist that appears
for a little time and then vanishes. 
Instead you ought to say,
"If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.".
 ~James 4:13-15

Friday Tale:
Each of us are on a journey. A journey through life. This life is a wilderness, through which we all must travel. On the other side of the wilderness there are two cities, a city of joy and eternal happiness, and a city of endless death. Through this wilderness there is the one path we need to take through Christ. There are many crossroads which can lead us closer to one of those cities.
   Are you willing to face this wilderness alone? Are you willing to take a chance on your own knowledge at each crossroad?    We do not know when but, eventually, each of us will reach the other side of the wilderness. Look to your fellow walkers for help, but especially to our God.
   This verse promises us that we can trust God to guide us down this path of life. While we are on that path, we are promised fullness of joy. At the end of the path, when we reach the right hand of God, we are promised eternal happiness.
    May God bless your day with peace
~ Daybreak Promises

You wilt shew me the path of life:
in Your presence is fullness of joy;
at Your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
 ~ Psalm 16:11
