How To Make The Most Of Life

 Look down,
Look up...
Don't miss a drop from Today's sparkling cup!

Happy 5th day of September, everyone! 
In Canada and USA we are celebrating Labor/Labour Day!

If we would do well, my love
On this small stint of sod
We should greet every step with awe
And every day with God

If we want more out of Here
Then this small canon heed
And try to make the most, my dear
Of every moment-seed

If we wish to seek and find
Ah, wise are they who live
Knowing that what we leave behind
Is the best we can give

If we would do well, my love
With each new grant of grace
We should seek guidance from above
Meek-mindful of our place

If we want more out of life
We will find what we crave
As we give humble thanks to God
For this; the day we have

Today awaits! 
Live it well!
How many more wait?
No one can tell!

Today awaits...
to all the same
Past and future
No one can claim

Today awaits
An awesome bit
Future and past
Are hinged on it

Let's hug someone
Say 'I love you'
And do the best
That we can do 

Today, God's gift
To you and I
Let's give Him our
Best reply


It is in Awareness of Time's Gift,
we give the best we have
to live...

Psalm 15

O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent?
    Who shall dwell on your holy hill?

He who walks blamelessly and does what is right
    and speaks truth in his heart;
who does not slander with his tongue
    and does no evil to his neighbor,
    nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
in whose eyes a vile person is despised,
    but who honors those who fear the Lord;
who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
who does not put out his money at interest
    and does not take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be moved.
