It’s time to hang it up . . .

This 2017 Daily Meditation Book is now available as are the other four editions of published meditations.

“I’m whistling, laughing, and jumping for joy; I’m singing your song, High God.” Psalm 8:2

Recently, I watched a sermon by Dr. Charles Stanley, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church in Atlanta. He talked about four “L” words: learn, laugh, listen, and live. Our life is a journey of learning, and memorizing scripture is good, even if it is the two-word sentence in the Bible: “Jesus wept.”

Laughter from humor keeps us balanced physically and mentally. Even after a rough day, one can find something to laugh about. If not, watch old I Love Lucy episodes and laugh at their crazy antics.

Listening helps us with relationships, and especially for God’s messages.

Dr. Stanley’s “L” word message can help us live more fully. During the last five years, I’ve written and or posted every day and by doing so learned more about the Bible and life situations. I’ve laughed at my mistakes and comments received from readers and listened to critiques of my work, the good and the ugly.

I’ve added the word “love” to the “L” letters. I’ve loved writing Daily Meditation Moments for the past five years, but I’ve also listened to God. I believe he is saying, “It’s time to give it up.” My daily writing is becoming more like a job and a joy.

I pray you will begin the New Year by learning, laughing, listening, and living. I encourage you to find a new social media avenue for your faith journey through or through a daily meditation/devotional book. I will miss hearing from you.

Lord, thank you for helping me learn, laugh, listen, and live. Amen
