Looking ahead:

The best preparation for the future is always the conscientious carrying out of what is given us today.

Oh, why AMEN indeed, a million times over! :)

Tomorrow is gone, time took it away; Yesterday holds no promises, but I have today!

Great Quote! Best I have heard in awhile.

Love the "country" shot, makes me feel like I am visiting my friends in Amish country.

Neat quote :)

I have a book of Elisabeth Elliott's on my (enormous!) "to-read" pile called A Slow and Certain Light. Have you read it?

By the way, if you get a chance, tell Hannah I got her letter on Saturday and sent her a reply today! :) I was really excited to get it. :)

Thank you for sharing this convicting quote, Bethany!

As I read it, this verse came to mind: "Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time because the days are evil." (Ephesians 5:16)

May we make the most of every moment.

Hi, Bethany! It was a blessing to see your comment today - thanks so much! I'm so glad you like my pictures - it's a toss up - photography or playing the piano - that's a tuffy! vbs
It was quite an adjustment to go from long to short hair, but I was really prepared in my mind, and so was my husband, so it's been easier because of that. *grin*
Thank you for the lovely post today - birdhouses in the sunset - very pretty. And Elizabeth Elliott is one of my favorite authors - the quote fits perfect for me today!
God bless you!
