A very MERRY CHRISTMAS to all and to my eldest brother, Ken a very happy 81st birthday!

I espied a short video today on FB that set me to thinking-it went something like this as I failed to record the wisdom.

" Most people approaching the end of their lives regret NOT the things they did, BUT regret the things NOT done!"

from <G1537> (ek) and <G59> (agorazo); to buy up, i.e. ransom; figurative to rescue from loss (improve opportunity) :- redeem.
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

Things we would of, could of, should have done!

Mountains we were afraid to climb, knowledge we did not seize, risks avoided, goals we failed to finish.

What part of this Scripture did/do WE fail to understand and BELIEVE!!??

Philippians 1:6 (KJV)
6  Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

I preach this sermon mainly to myself today!

And what do WE make of these Holy Scriptures, written in Red:

John 14:13 (KJV)
13  And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  

John 16:23 (KJV)
23  And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

Job understood the briefness of this life:

Job 7:6 (KJV)
6  My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.

Daily, WE should all arise gleefully, and thankful for another day/another

OPPORTUNITY called life.

As my dear father-in-law tearfully stated on his death bed,

" I would stay longer if I could!"

Beloved, my sincere PRAYER is that none of us arrive at that day and can only mourn,

I wish I had .............!!?? 

WE have not because WE ask not!!

James 4:2 (KJV)
2  Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.  

WE accomplish not because we TRY not!!


Colossians 1:29 (KJV)
29  Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.  

STRIVING-from <G73> (agon); to struggle , literally (to compete for a prize), figuratively (to contend with an adversary), or genitive (to endeavor to accomplish something) :- fight, labor fervently, strive.
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

Today, I thank God for the work ethnic instilled in me through my parents.

It was they that taught me: 


I well remember how clean and mechanically maintained all my father's cars were.

I remember him always keeping his shoes polished.

Ecclesiastes 9:10 (KJV)
10  Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.

As we near the year 2017, may this be our motto and mantra:

Philippians 3:14 (KJV)
14  I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

The sky is our only limit, dear brethren!!

Philippians 4:13 (KJV)
13  I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
