Scripture: Jesus said, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”   Mt. 6:34, NIV

Observations at Random
     On enjoying ill health: (such as “nothing stays down”)
Tomorrow - Flowers         UPSIDE:
    Nice and quiet.
    Food bill is exceptionally low (non-existent, almost)
    Reluctance to work not held against you.     
     Getting plenty of rest is admired.
     DOWNSIDE:
            Don't feel so good!

    The best laid plans of mice and men
Oft go awry!

        So, through sickness and health, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.“  Mt. 6:33
    If you can’t do one thing, do something else!  As New York Yankees catcher Yogi Bera is supposed to have said, “When you come to a fork in the road --- take it!”
    Ever notice that a seemingly short period of delightful activity can generate such a byproduct (mess) that one despairs of ever cleaning it up?
    Acquaintances from my days of gainful employment invariably inquire as to my ability to find something to occupy my time. My dilemma is not one of substance, but of ranking.
(Ask if you don’t get it . . . I’m planting
Seeds  . . . !!!)

    Said a thousand-legged worm,
    As he he gave a little squirm,
    “Has anybody seen a leg of mine?”
    “If it can’t be found,
    I will have to hop around
         On the other nine hundred ninety-nine!


. . . . If one missing among a thousand can send one stumbling, think of the effect ‘missing one’ has on our congregation.     

    How many crows does it take to build a nest? I’ve no idea, but watched as four of the birds moved tree-by-tree past our house, with at least two carrying objects in their beaks.

    I took some time to sit in the afternoon  sunshine  and  watch  the  bees carrying  pollen into the hive. Something is blooming, somewhere. Yes, I will take time to stop and smell the ‘roses’, as I find them.  All things are wonderful, in their own way, as they are the creation of God.
    
    ‘O, twould be a far, far better place if we could take Jesus’ advice, and let tomorrow worry about itself.
