THOUGHT for today:

"His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The bad may have a bitter taste
But sweet will be the flower.” ~Cowper

We may never know the results of our labor until we kneel before God’s throne. In that moment,

we will know the sweet flower of obedience to God during our time on earth. How will you spend that time?

How will you use the words you write?

“And the world passes away, and the lust thereof; but he that does the will of God abides forever.” I John 2:17

Thank you, and God bless you,

April B
