I capped off Monday, November 30, 2015 by hanging virtual paper on the Internet with the publication of two projects: the December issue of Gospel Gazette Online and the December edition of the Rushmore Newsletter. Hopefully, no one has a virtual bird cage and attempts to line it with these virtual papers!
Busy day! Drove two hours or so from Tennessee to my Winona, Mississippi residence. Bought some groceries. Got an oil change for the car. Finished the printed version of the Rushmore Newsletter and sent the digital files to a printing company in Michigan. Did a little bit of office work. Published to the Internet both Gospel Gazette Online and the Rushmore Newsletter, as well as sent notices about both of them to thousands of subscribers. These latter accomplishments were achieved from the comfort of my easy chair in my living room.
It is nearly time to retire for the evening so I can apply myself to a battery tasks for the coming new day, if the Lord wills that both a new day is forthcoming and that I will be alive and able to meet it head on. The hymn, “Work, For the Night Is Coming,” along with the Bible verse, John 9:4, encourages Christians to seize the moment. “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work” (NKJV). Otherwise, the children of God, of whom I am merely one, must devote ourselves to “redeeming the time” (Ephesians 5:16). After all, “whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going” (Ecclesiastes 9:10).
