All things are passing by

For some time now I have felt that I want to put a little booklet together, but never seem to be able to make the time to do it.  I have created  several small booklets with my desk top publishing programmes in the past, some articles of which I have used in posts on my blog, and feel a strong urge to write another one.   So this may be the last post I will write for a while as I will not be able to spend so much time on blogging, although I will enjoy visiting other blogs to catch up on my reading now and again, and if I feel the urge to put up a post, will do so.   I thoroughly enjoy interacting with other bloggers, and thank other bloggers for interacting with me.  However, I  know there is a time for everything and do not want to miss the moment as time passes by quickly and I believe that the Holy Spirit is encouraging me to write this booklet, for whatever reason, and that I must respond to that encouragement to be in the will of the Lord. 

'To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven'

Ecclesiastes ch.3 v.1

Two days ago I went to  a nature park with my sister to have a reunion with two old school friends.   I had visited this place before and taken some lovely pics of the swans there one Summer, so it was nice to re-visit it in Winter.





All things are passing by

There is a season for all things a time and purpose too
for God has fashioned every day that we must travel through
There is a season to be strong, a season to be weak
a time to give opinion and a time we should not speak
And whether things be good or bad, all things are passing by
for this world is a testing place to perfect both you and I
So do not worry if some days all things do not go right
just be yourself - maintain your ways, be honest in God's sight
And if today you need more strength or patience to endure
just call upon the Saviour's name, His counseling is pure
'Tis He alone who understands the 'wherefore's' and the 'why's'
and nothing in this world of man is hidden from His eyes
So seek instruction from the One who watches from above
for every word that comes from Him is blessed with grace and love     

      


'Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him: but I will defend my own ways before Him.  He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not come before Him.'
Job ch.13 vs.15,16
