Time: Another of God’s Blessings


Memories of a Centenarian 

 

Scripture:  “Redeeming the time: because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5: 16

Returning our thoughts to my seat on a log in the forest, while sitting there I had been so enthralled with the superlative beauty of God’s splendor around me, that time passed rapidly. And I remembered that at age one hundred plus, I am completing my next book titled “Making Life Count”.

Though I have not lived a life of fame or fortune: God is leaving me on earth for some purpose, and although advanced age brings some limitations, God has continued to bless me with an alert mind and an ability to use a computer. Though our family still is living as evacuees, our house is being repaired and we hope to return there when all the repairs are completed.

This is the Day God Made: This day which God has made is a free gift to you and me; So heavenly Father, help us use it in ways that honor Thee. Forgive us every sinful act, and fill our hearts with Your love, And that is possible because of Jesus Christ, Savior above,

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us not because of what we do or don’t do, but because of who we are: Your adopted children. We pray and thank You in Jesus’ name. Amen.
