Life

Thankful in All Things and Circumstances

~~~

“I have learned in whatever state I am, therewith to be content”

 ~

Focus on what you have, not on what you don’t have.

To have your needs met doesn’t mean there is money in the bank; rather you have something to eat, a roof over your head and clothes on your back.

God knows what you need; let Him define that for you.

 ~

Be anxious for nothing, be prayerful in everything

and be thankful in all things.

Faith

Faith is the substanceof things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen…

Faith…one word…five letters…and without it you cannot please God. The eleventh chapter of Hebrews lists some of those who walked by faith. Each verse begins with “By faith”.  There is no mention of wealth or fame and fortune because of their faith…there is much mentioned of their hardships and suffering for their faith.

There is coming a day in America when one’s faith will be tested like never before…a day when hardship and suffering will be at the door. We hear about it…we read about it…we watch it on the news as if it were a movie.

The eleventh chapter of Hebrews is worthy of thought. The “Faith Chapter” is worthy of consideration. It is time to ask ourselves if we can stand by faith…suffer by faith…even die by faith; for one day it may be so.

The Passing of Time

~~~

As a brand new morning begins to wake

With a glimpse of light in the eastern sky;

I think about all of my days gone by.

 ~

So many days I have had in my life.

Did I use them wisely or did I waste my time?

In all of those days that once were mine.

 ~

What days I have left are precious now.

 Through aging eyes, it’s clear to see,

 My days are less than they used to be.

The Days of Youth

~~~

As I walk along this familiar path,

Yesterdays return to me.

Those days of youth so long ago,

Thoughts of home and family.

 ~

Summer love that warmed my heart,

That first kiss in the pouring rain.

Embracing, vowing, ever to be,

Then summer ended, as did the dream.

 ~

Age has found its place in me,

As I recall what used to be.

Memories of yesteryears,

Thoughts of home and family.
