Chapter 7, Page 26, Book 10

The pictures today are of the woods as the sun was setting Sunday evening. The golden glow made the leaves look like it was autumn instead of summer.

If you can't fly, then run.
If you can't run, then walk.
If you can't walk, then crawl.
But whatever you do, keep moving

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

I'm up and moving and it's going to be another Merry Monday here at my house today

We have had a break in the weather and it's been just beautiful since the hot humid stuff moved out of our area on Sunday morning. It is great to feel a little cooler and to be able to do something with out feeling like you are in a sauna.

1. Wake Up – Decide to have
a good day.

Today is the day the Lord
hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it
Psalms 118:24.

2. Dress Up – The best way to dress up is to put on a smile. A smile
is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.

The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at outward appearance but the Lord looks at the heart
1 Sam 16:7

3. Shut Up – Say nice things a
nd learn to listen. God gave us two
ears and one mouth so He must have meant for us to do twice as much
listening as talking.

He who guards his lips guards his soul
Proverbs 13:3.

4. Stand Up – For what you believe in. Stand for something or you
will fall for anything.

Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the
proper time, we will reap a harvest
if we do not give up. Therefore, as
we have opportunity, let us do good…
Gal 6:9-10.

5. Look Up – To the Lord.

I can do everything through Him who gives me strength
Philippians 4:13

Be contented with what you have, but
never too contented with what you are.

Laughing helps. It’s like jogging on the inside.
Have a MERRY Monday everyone!
'On Ya' - ma

Good Morning Ma!! What a wonderful way to begin my day...your inspirational quotes find me feet on the floor and ready for a beautiful day! I especially loved the one that begins, "Be content with what you have..." Perfect. Thank you for your lovely lovely thoughts.

You're right, those trees DO take on an Autumn look as the sun sets. I'm pleased to say I took up inside jogging years ago - I laugh all the time, despite myself sometimes but I laugh anyway.
