# 73 Give it up!

When is the last time you gave something away? Not the kind of stuff you would put in the garage sale or goodwill but I mean some of your GOOD stuff. 
This is something in my life that I need to do a better job with.
 I suffer from the "I may need that one day" syndrome! 
Yea I may have a bit of hoarder in me. I do like to watch American Pickers!! I hope you will join me and find something you have, that will have an impact on someone else and just
 "Give it up"

Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.

2 Corinthians 9
The point is this: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for 
God loves a cheerful giver

# 72 The Zoo

Yep went to the zoo last week! It has been a few years since I had been. Its always better if you pick a cool day (we did) so you can spend more than an hour walking around. It is a great place to see raw emotion from children seeing the animals sometimes for the first time. we got to see the baby shadow leopard cubs on display for the first time on this trip (pictured above). That is what makes the adults ooo and ahhhh!  A great place to test your photo skills too!

The city is not a concrete jungle, it is a human zoo.

Genesis 1
24 And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so.25 And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the cattle according to their kinds, and everything that creeps upon the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

# 71 Procrastinate

Some things you can put off, but some things not matter what you do they are going to happen.
I think it is best to do the things, you know you should do, when you know you should do them!
Easier said than done.
Like the seasons many things will be upon us whether we like it or not.
Take some time today and think of what should be on your to do list...and do it!

27 Proverbs 27 1-2
Do not boast about tomorrow,
for you do not know what a day may bring forth.
Let another praise you, and not your own mouth;
    a stranger, and not your own lips.

# 70 In Good Time

Have you ever had something you wanted done...RIGHT NOW! 
We think that all things should be done on our schedule!
 I am trying to be patient with things in my life that are not on my time table.
And they are not in my control so I must wait.
Patience has never been one of my greatest attributes but I am learning.

Isaiah 55
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways, says the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.

# 69 Dog Days

Summer in Texas is HOT. No big revelation there!..
I keep pictures like this to remind me that seasons change.  I now see more clearly the seasons of life having passed through a couple of them. With change comes excitement of what is ahead and a bit of sadness to know some things will not be revisited the same way ever again. Enjoy the moment what ever season you are  in. Good or bad, one thing is for sure..Things will change, you will get a day older and wiser.

Henry Cloud


For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.
