For those of you who don’t speak Latin, “Carpe Diem” is a quotation from the Roman writer Horace’s Odes and has
been used in English since the early 1800’s. It means “Seize the day!” and is used to urge someone to make the most
of the present time and give little thought to the future.
In His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus included some long and urgent teachings on this point, directed squarely toward
the removal of anxiety from men’s hearts. That section is concluded with Matthew 6:34 (NIV) 34 “ Therefore do not
worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
In Psalms 118:24 (NIV), the Psalmist writes “This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. “
In a recent sermon, Brother Keith Kress emphasized the comforting thought that God is omnipresent and is in control.
Most things we worry about never happen or are beyond our control. Prayer can leave these worries at God’s feet,
and we can devote our thoughts and actions to positive matters each day.
“Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is the gift of God.
That’s why they call it the Present.”
                                         HAVE A BLESSED DAY!    Tom C.
  I doubt that most of us can really comprehend the word "freedom."  Most have never lived in a situation in which
they were not free.  If we lived in some of the war-torn countries of this world, we'd have a better understanding.  If we
lived in a country which was controlled by a dictator, we'd have a better idea about freedom.
     Those among us who have fought for the freedoms we enjoy, undoubtedly have a little better understanding of
freedom than most of us.  This country was founded upon principles of freedom.  Most of those principles were
derived from the Bible, and It is only by following the teaching of Scripture that we can be truly free.  We are thankful
for those who put their lives on the line to give us freedom, and to maintain that freedom.
     We are most thankful for Him who put His life on the line on the cross to enable us to have the ultimate freedom.  
He gives us freedom from the guilt of sin, freedom from Satan's control, and, eventually, freedom from the pains and
sorrows of this world which can only be found in heaven.
     As you celebrate our country's independence this weekend, spend some time trying to understand what your life
would be like without freedom.  What if God had put your spirit in a body which was born in a another country, one
without freedom?  How much different would your life be?  If Jesus had not put His life on the line for your freedom,
how much different would your spiritual life be?
                                                                             We love you all  -  Keith
