On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Don't Worry ... Be Happy

Dear Heart has claimed more than once that he is "not a deep thinker."
 
 
 
I disagree. One of his favorite sayings is "Be Happy"
 
The Apostle Paul said it like this.
 


 
C. S. Lewis said it this way:
 

"My own idea, for what it is worth, is that all sadness
which is not either arising
from the repentance of a concrete sin
and hastening towards concrete amendment or restitution,
or else arising from pity and hastening to active assistance, is simply bad;
and I think we all sin
by needlessly disobeying the apostolic injunction to
'rejoice' as much as by anything else."
 
Whew!
 
Selah!

  4. You're thinking really DEEP today, and you're totally right, though I had never quite thought about it that way...I'm guilty as charged, BTDT. ;-)
