9.  poem by M.A. Stodart:

Work while you work, play while you play,
That is the way to be cheerful all day;
All that you do, do with your might,
Things done by halves are never done right.

One thing each time, and that done well,
Is a very good rule as many can tell;
Moments are useless, trifled away,
So work while you work, play while you play.

6.  FAITH is the first step, but whose step?  -

“The Hebrew word for faith is אמונה (emunah – Strong’s #530) and is an action-oriented word meaning “support”. Our Western concept of faith places the action on the one you have faith in, such as “faith in God.” But the Hebrew word places the action on the one who “supports God.””

9.  Implications of the headship of Christ -

“Once I began to know this kind of unity I knew I could no longer denominate myself from other believers. I became convinced that this experience-this bond of life and fellowship-was the answer to all our questions and all our seeking. So I became hungry for more. And eventually I realized that to know this kind of fellowship on a daily basis-which is what the New Testament envisions-I was gonna have to live close enough to my brothers and sisters that we could see each other as regularly as we wanted. No more driving to “church” thirty minutes away, having a couple hours of fellowship (if I was lucky), then having to return home and try my best to survive the rest of the week all alone as a Christian. No. I would spend all my moments within the community of the redeemed, for this is where the Christian life is meant to be lived.”

them to it by what amuses their
minds, so that you may be better

the peculiar bent of the genius
of each." – Plato

for tomorrow will care for itself.

Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 6:34 - “When I take this important job I have day by day, sometimes week by week, I feel a sense of peace and purpose and joy in what I do and the anxiety is chased away.  There is nothing wrong with planning for the future, but when I think of decades, when I dream up all the what if's, it doesn't get me anything but a bucket of worry.”
