July 2015 – If you want the Good Life !

If you want the good life,

Get wisdom. And if you want wisdom, get God.

-George O Wood

The story is told that the guy who invented Velcro got the idea when he was walking through a field one day. Rather than being simply irritated with all the little weed burrs that stuck to his pants, he studied them carefully and discovered something useful. Now that’s wisdom: looking for the good in annoying even uncomfortable situations. Each minute of each hour of each day is a gift from God, a unique opportunity to live a meaningful and fulfilling life. Every day is also a challenge: we have places to go, people to see, things to do, and choices to make. But we do not face the dilemmas of life alone; for our Lord has promised to provide all the wisdom and insight we need, not just for our major decisions but even for the smallest, simplest choices-like looking for something good in a weed burr.

May you live each day to the fullest measure of God’s unfailing love and perfect wisdom.

P.S. After this weeks Supreme Court ruling on same sex marriage, I leave you with this.

And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15

God Bless & Much Joy In Life
