Those Were The Days!! Or Were They?

We all have said something akin to "those were the best days, etc."  And while they may have been great memories from high school, your wedding and the births of you kids, they are now just memories.  You can look at pictures of them, but don't dwell too much on them.

That is a problem I have had.  I look back to when I could drive or speak without trouble and think they were the best of times.  But I am learning that each day I have is just as good as the one before. So, I will take off the rear-view mirror and just focus oh what lies ahead!!

I read a verse this morning that really struck me today.  Ecclesiastes 7:10 - "Do not say, 'Why were the old days better than these?' For it is not wise to ask such questions."  It really is great advice.  Of course it is, it came from the Bible!!

Have a great weekend!!

No, that is not me in that picture!!  If it was I would not be using the intraweb right now.  I'd be thanking the Lord for his beauty!!  I love being the first one to wake up.  Though it doesn't happen very often, especially while the twins are in school.  But the twins are out of state this week with my parents, so I am the first to greet the morning sun in our household.

I try to spend that time with my coffee (for those that know me, it's a must, otherwise I would be mumbling my words and bumping into to things) and the Bible.  My church has a daily reading plan and that is the perfect time for me to read.  With the house quiet the words and verses seem to 'pop out' more and let me really understand and reflect on them.  And then I pray for the day ahead and whatever else on my mind.

It starts my day off right!!!!

Today is Election Day...

Today is election day in California.  Whether you want the blue or red or the "Bacon Party" to win (my favorite), there is ONE election for you that will stand out when all is said and done.

That election is whether or not YOU have voted for God.  His party platform is The Bible!  It teaches the ways to walk in God's favor.  I pray that you will "vote" for God.  It can change your life!!
