Thought for today
Here is another quote I found among some yellowed old clippings I had saved. This one gives some good advice as to how believers should spend their time:
"Spend your time in nothing which you know must be repented of; in nothing on which you might not pray for the blessing of God; in nothing which you could not review with a quiet conscience on your dying bed; in nothing which you might not safely and properly be found doing if death should surprise you in the act." ~ Richard Baxter
That last part made me think of something I read about one of my ancestors in an old genealogy. It was said that he was found dead in his chair with his open Bible on his lap.
This quote really challenges me. We only have one day guaranteed to us -- the day we are living right now. Are we using our time wisely?
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
