POINT...IN TIME

Time – Master and keeper, you are so ignored, wasted and soon forgotten.
Significant; the most important element of our existence for without it we cease to be.
Like smoke we appear, rise to great heights and then disappear.
Time moving as quickly as lightening.

7 TIPS TO ENSURE A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

Vegetables
While it is possible to live and enjoy perfect health without  taking the life of any living thing, when we begin the natural diet a very sharp distinction will be noticed.

Our attitude between appetite and hunger will be changed as we find ourselves becoming more temperate and more aware of the ills of overeating as well as eating hurriedly; also we should learn the art of combination of fruits, grains, and vegetables into foods that will sustain life and will not bring disease. 

In adopting the natural diet the change should be made gradually, increasing the number of uncooked while decreasing the cooked food at the same ratio. There is no comparison or doubt that the food which God gave Adam in his sinless state is the best for man's use.

10 STEPS TO BECOMING A "GOOD" HUSBAND

 Becoming a good husband does not happen overnight, anybody can be a husband, but to become a "good" husband one needs to be a man of substance.  If the man recognizes that the home should be treated like a firm, then he will operate his home as he would his business.  Investing quality time, effort and above all love. By doing this you will not only enrich the family but bring happiness to all.  Here are ten steps to consider.

How To Be Rich In The Things That Matter

Often we  find ourselves chasing after things that are meaningless, things that seem important today only tomorrow comes and they are not so important. As we begin to put first things first, we realize that there are more to life than material gain.  We find that our family, good friends and people are more important than things. Here we see Solomon reminiscing on his life.....


 " I thought in my heart,"come now, I will test you with pleasure to find out what is good."   But that also proved  to  be meaningless.  "Laughter," I said, "is foolish.  And what does pleasure accomplish?"

From the joy of divine communion, Solomon turned to find satisfaction in the pleasure of the sense. How often we too find ourselves chasing after the pleasures of this life only to come up empty with heartaches, sorrow and broken dreams. As he continued we see he did everything possible to gain happiness.....

"I tried cheering myself with wine, and embracing folly - my mind still guiding me with wisdom.  I wanted to see what was worthwhile for men to do under heaven during the few days of their lives.

I undertook great projects:  I built houses for myself and planted vineyards.  I made gardens and parks and planted all kinds of fruit trees in them.  All of it is meaningless, a chasing after the wind."

Inspite of Solomon's shortcomings the Lord sought to arouse him to the realization of his wrong actions.

"I hated all these things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave them to the one who comes after me.  And who knows whether he will be a wise man or a fool?  Yet he will have control over all the work into which I have poured my effort and skill under the sun.

So my heart began to despair over.  For a man may do his work with wisdom, knowledge and skill, and then he must leave all he owns to someone who has not worked for it.

What does a man get for all the toil and anxious striving with which he labors?  All his days and work is pain and grief; even at night his mind does not rest.

A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in his work.  This too, I see, is from the hand of God, for without Him, who can or find enjoyment?  To the man who pleases Him, God gives wisdom,knowledge and happiness."

Solomon's conscience was quickened and he finally saw his errors at last the discipline of suffering had accomplished its work. 
Ecclesiastes 2:1-12,17-24)

DUTY TO PARENTS

The other day as I was browsing through an old book, I found this beautiful reading.  Though it was written more than a hundred years ago it is still relevant to us today. I hope you enjoy it as I did.

"WE read that Moses did ascend
To Sinai's Mount to take
The ten commandments from God's hand,
And that the mount did shake.

SECRETS REVEALED

"As we contemplate the great things of God's word, we look into a fountain of knowledge, that broadens and deepens; beneath our gaze. Its breadth and depth surpass our knowledge.  As we gaze, the vision widens into an everlasting sea.

As the king's anger burn towards these men his fury wax stronger and stronger.  everywhere there is distress and none to comfort the other.

THE DREAMER

The king went to bed and had a dream, when he awoke he could not remember the dream. So he called all the magicians to tell him what the dream was about, they could not tell him. He called the Astrologers, they could not help him. He called the sorcerers to tell him, they could not either. So finally he called the philosophers, they too were unable to help him. Dreams we are told are successions of images, ideas, emotions and sensations, that occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep.

GOOD THINGS

As I sit here, gazing at the night's starry sky, I ponder on the good things of life, and how we can make beautiful things of our existence. However as we examine the attitude of others we are reminded that although some may be under the impression that their life is the most fascinating thing, we see this is not so.
