Have Any Familarity With The Sluggard?

Tis the voice of the sluggard; I heard him complain,
"You have waked me too soon, I must slumber again."
As the door on its hinges, so he on his bed,
Turns his sides and his shoulders and his heavy head.

"A little more sleep, and a little more slumber;"
Thus he wastes half his days, and his hours without number,
And when he gets up, he sits folding his hands,
Or walks about sauntering, or trifling he stands.

I passed by his garden, and saw the wild brier,
The thorn and the thistle grow broader and higher;
The clothes that hang on him are turning to rags;
And his money still wastes till he starves or he begs.

I made him a visit, still hoping to find
That he took better care for improving his mind:
He told me his dreams, talked of eating and drinking;
But scarce reads his Bible, and never loves thinking.

Said I then to my heart, "Here's a lesson for me,"
This man's but a picture of what I might be:
But thanks to my friends for their care in my breeding,
Who taught me betimes to love working and reading.

The Day AFTER!

Why does one always feel like a pig the day after Thanksgiving?
Well, it will be calorie counting for me!
Hmm...on second thought,
will wait until after consuming the leftovers from the feast.

Crunch! Rustle!

Let's treat ourselves to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step. Its sound lets us know how alive the earth is, and how much more alive is our God.

What Will Remain?

These pictures speak a thousand words, showing the remains of buildings in Drawbridge (formerly, Saline City, which is located at the south end of the San Francisco Bay). Drawbridge was known as a hunting village but by 1979 it had become a ghost town. Today if you travel the area, you will see the old dilapidated buildings slowly sinking into the marshlands. It is an example of what some men call progress, while others call it rejection.

Seeing this old town once again made me to think, could this happen to the Apostolic Truths of today? Will our wonderful heritage be abandoned in favor of flasher, more modern structures? God help us all to preserve this precious Truth that was one day built to house our spiritual being.

Fear Not

Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them...they are liable to spring upon you; but if you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight. - O.S. Marden

Togetherness

Alone we can do so little;
together we can do so much.

Words - No Action = Nothing Done

After all is said and done,
a lot more will have been said than done.

Some people have a gift for words but one day, I believe, we all will be required to account for every idle, unfruitful word. For in living for the Lord, we must do our best each day to perform that which we speak from our mouth into actions to further His Kingdom.

Praise Him Forever

Any victory that does not more than conquer is just an imitation victory. While we are suppressing and wrestling, we are only imitating victory. If Christ lives in us, we will rejoice in everything, and we will thank and praise the Lord. We will say, "Hallelujah! Praise the Lord" forever. - Watchman Nee

Adversity's Wind


Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are.
