Two: Remember that we are all in the same boat.
Three: Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
Four: Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
Five: Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
Six: Build your future on high ground.
Seven: For safety's sake, travel in pairs.

Nine: When you're stressed, float a while.
Ten: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
Eleven: No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting...

It's raining. I enjoy inclement weather.
I got to take the dog to the groomer.
The world is about as perfect as it could get, at least from my perspective.
I've started two new classes.
They are both about effective prayer.
I've taken the Tuesday evening course before.
We could not find a record of the credits.
That's probably a good thing.
It never hurts to review stuff like this.
There is some kind of challenge going on where I study.
I'm looking forward to the resolution - not that I'm any kind of anxious. I am not at all concerned. It's just been offered to me as a challenge, so I watch for the resolve as if it were a story intriguing enough to read to the end.
All in all, things are good.
My teacher told a dramatic story about pistol packing people who believed themselves to be reincarnated dinosaurs.
Some schools are different.

Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff-- including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for all the world to see. This was passed on to me from another pumpkin. Now, it is your turn to pass it to a pumpkin. I liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch. Happy Fall!
I could use a good scooping out, that's for sure.
