THE SEVEN UPS
1.   WAKE UP…DECIDE TO HAVE A GOOD DAY! “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be
glad in it” (Psalms 118:24)
2.  DRESS UP…THE BEST WAY TO DRESS UP IS TO PUT ON A SMILE! A smile is an inexpensive way to improve
your looks. “The Lord seeth not as man seeth, for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on
the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)
3.SHUT UP…SAY NICE THINGS AND LEARN TO LISTEN! God gave us two ears and one mouth so He must              
have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking. “He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life; but he that    
openeth wide his lips shall have destruction” (Proverbs 13:3)
4.STAND UP…FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN! Stand for something or you will fall for anything. “And let us not be   
weary in well doing; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good
unto all men, especially unto them who are of the house hold of faith” (Galatians 6:9-10)
5.   LOOK UP…TO THE LORD! “I can do all things through  Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13)
6.   REACH UP…FOR SOMETHING HIGHER! “press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in           
Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14)
7.    LIFT UP…YOUR PRAYERS! “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” (Philippians  4:6)

   Time is Passing

      Does it seem to you that this year has flown by?  I know folks say the older you grow, the more quickly time
seems to elapse.  It seems just a few weeks ago we were wishing for warmer temperatures because last winter’s
cold weather lasted through April.  Of course, we all realize that there are still 24 hours in each day and 52 weeks
in each year.  It is simply our perception that time quickens as we age.
      We can learn a great lesson from these thoughts. The words of Psalms 90:10-12 (NIV), teaches a valuable
reality about life.  “The length of our days is seventy years — or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is
but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away.  Who knows the power of your anger? For your
wrath is as great as the fear that is due you. Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of
wisdom’.
     Even though the span of my life might be 70-80 years, or even 100+, it still passes relatively quickly, and is
just a “drop in the bucket” compared to eternity.  Because of our brief time in this life, the psalmist concludes that
we should seek God’s wisdom (Psalms 90:12).  In seeking His wisdom, we will desire to live by His Word and do
our best to please Him in our lives.
      After writing about the futility of living life without God, the wise man, Solomon, wrote: “Let us hear the
conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all.  For God will bring
every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil’” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14).

      BABY AFGHANS
     Helping Hands have been delivering
afghans to new born babies at Bethesda
hospital.  We have gotten a very good
response to this service to our
community.  We are asking for the
congregations help by purchasing and
donating yarn for the afghans. Needed is:
Red Heart Super Saver (from Walmart)
Med #4, in pastel baby colors. There is a
basket in the foyer with a sample of the
yarn and cards with the information for you
to take. See Joyce Sprague with questions.
                           REUNION!!!!!!!!
      If you were a teen during the time Jeff
& Jackie were teen leaders, there will be a
reunion get together, Friday, November 7
from 5:30-???????, in the multipurpose
room. Just like the old days bring, snacks,
pop and money for pizza. See Jackie
Jadwin or Vanessa Foster for details.
