Jane Walker: Hi everyone!  I just want y'all to know that I'm here and will, one day, be up to posting again.  things have been getting in the way, is all Jun 25 2019 4:45pm

Janet: This is a great day to praise the Lord! Jun 24 2019 2:31pm

Oldiesmann: Just now realized I didn't have this set up properly... Only guests and regular users could see it and nobody could post shouts. Should be fixed now! Jun 22 2019 8:00pm

Life is a gift

Life is a gift to be used everyday, not to be smothered and hidden away; It isn't a thing to be stored in the chest where you gather your keepsakes and treasure your best; It isn't a joy to be sipped now and then and promptly put in a dark place again. Life is a gift that the humblest may boast of, and one that the humblest will make the most of. Get out and live it each hour of the day, wear it and use it as much as you may; don't keep it in niches and corner and groves, you'll find that in service its beauty improves.

Thank you Mieka, that is a very nice poem.

Mieka ~ Great Poem, I will heed it's advice.!


How very true.  We're afraid to use life, fearing that it will slip away the more we use it.  But it is a gift of God.
