It is a Great Life if You don't Weaken

Top of the morning to you,

My grandfather, pappap, used to say that all the time.  It is a great life if you don't weaken.  The older I get the more I know what he meant by that.  I had to change the bumper on Bonnie's jeep the other day.  I like working with tools and I like working on cars doing brakes and replacing parts, most of the time.  Changing that bumper reminded me of how old I am getting.  Getting up and down off of the floor is a real challenge anymore and can we talk about arthur, you know, arthur?  Arthur-itis.  In my hands and back.  No fun, but it could be worse, a lot worse so I am thankful for my health such that it is.  On You Tube the fellow changed that bumper in about 30 minutes, if that, but in real life(especaily my life) it took 3 hours.  My wife sat by me and was my gopher.  So even though it took longer than expected and even though my body objected, it was all worth it when we were done and looking at the finished product.  Yep, it is a great life if you don't weaken.  

No matter what we are going through in life, no matter what you may be going through, Jesus is always there with you and loves you emmensely and always will. One day our struggles will be over and we will be in paradise.  John 3:16.  Until then we can enjoy the journey by staying in touch with Jesus through prayer, praise, fellowship, Bible study, and ministry.  When we do all things as unto Him then even the mundane becomes special.  Hang in there my friend.  God loves you and so do I,
