Then Jesus said to His disciples,"If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. Matthew 16:24
To follow Jesus is not a snap; He calls for soldiers who are brave,
Some gladly follow Him though some things they will have to waive.
Denying oneself is allowing Jesus to lead completely without reserve,
And deciding now that you identify with Him and Him only will you serve.
When in this mode, just keep up the pace, and follow Him without end,
And you can be sure that you will be blessed, and indeed are His friend. (RP)
Margie sees her regular eye doctor today. There are tests she regularly takes there with him. We hope to continue later this morning and afternoon on more chapters of the book we are writing. It is cool this morning, but the weatherman says by tomorrow and Sunday, it will be in the 70's. We'll see if he is right. We trust you have a good day. Thanks for praying.
