Just for today, make changes
By DR. ED JENNINGS, pas-
tor, Church on the Lake,
Take a moment and ask yourself,
‘‘Is this how I live?”
If not, make some changes! Just
for today, I’ll enjoy each moment
to the fullest and try not to tackle
my whole life’s problems at
once. Just for today, I’ll try to im-
prove my mind by learning more
than I know.
I’ll read God’s word faithfully
for it’s my source of wisdom and
strength. I’ll be particularly sensi-
tive to those scriptures that require
personal obedience, corrective ac-
tion, and greater commitment.
Just for today, I’ll do my best to
deal with what is on my plate today
and today only. Just for today, I’ll
be agreeable, try to look my best
and make sure my words are "sea-
soned with grace”. Just for today. I
won’t find fault or try to change or
improve anyone- except my-
self. Just for today, I’ll have a plan
and a goal. I might not follow them
exactly but I’ll have them nonethe-
By doing that I’ll save myself
from two enemies-hurry and inde-
cision! I’ll develop my charac-
ter. I’ll do someone a good turn and
keep it secret; if anyone finds out it
won’t count. Just for today, I’ll do
something I don’t naturally want to
do, thereby train my spirit to rule
my flesh and my will to rule my
Just for today, I won’t be afraid
to love or risk; I’ll take steps of
faith that stretch me beyond my
present comfort level, try to enjoy
all God’s blessings, and believe
that every seed I sow in His King-
dom will be multiplied back to me
many times over. This is how I’ll
live - Just For Today!
“This is the day which the Lord
has made; we will rejoice and be
glad in it. ”
Psalm IJS: 24

Are you having trouble getting
back into the work swing after the
holidays? Cheer up — your job may
be helping you live longer.
In a recent study, people who re-
tired early had higher mortality
rates than people who kept working
beyond age 55. More research is
needed to determine if people's
reasons for early retirement played
a role in their longevity, in the
meantime, staying active and busy,
whether through work you enjoy or
hobbies, is best for your physical
and mental health.
To live a long time, you had to
find a w ay of preserving innate heat
and moisture. Again, from antiquity
to modem times the most popular
expert answer was to limit the in-
take of food. Mortals have to eat to
keep up their vital heat, but the
clever strategy was to prevent that
heat from flaming too high. The
fuel for the body's vital heat wasn't
food and drink itself; rather, food
and drink required .more of this
innate heat to be consumed. A rich
diet was a bit like turning up the
knob on yout camping stove when
you have only one canister of pro-
pane ““'you run out of fuel quicker.
So the secret of extending human
life w as an ascetic way of life.
