“Oh, how sweet the light of day
And how wonderful to live in the sunshine!
Even if you live a long time, don’t take a single day for granted.
Take delight in each light-filled hour,
Remembering that there will also be many dark days
And that most of what comes your way is smoke.
Live footloose and fancy free-
You won’t be young forever…”
Ecclesiastes 11.7-8, 10 The Message
Some days you open your Bible and just realize how much better it is than a thousand fortune cookies! Truth! Life! My delight! Sweeter than honey to my lips. His words are like bread – and I eat them! They cause me to break into a prayer of love to the Letter Writer~
Oh, how I love Your law, O Lord. Your promise preserves my life. Your words are the lyrics and melody of my song wherever I live – wherever I find myself. I think about Your Word day and night. Your decrees light the path I am on and help me find my way back when I am lost. I have spent my life testing Your promises and I have found them to be true. I love Your Word, O Lord. (shamelessly ripping off David in Psalm 119)
I love how the scriptures set us free from self-imposed religious activity and living! Footloose and fancy free…Jeanie
NOTE TO SELF: This must truly be a mandate for the coming year.
