One Thing At A Time

by Sandra Foreman April 04, 2019

We are confronted with so many options and tasks on any given day. For this reason, we sometimes don't pay attention to what we are doing in the moment. Because poetry often has a way of conveying a message that many can easily appreciate, I would like to share "One Thing At A Time" by M.A.Stodart. It is a poem that speaks to being present and concentrating on what is before you at that moment. 

 

 

 One Thing At A Time by M.A. Stodart
Work while you work, 

 

 

Play while you play, 

 

 

That is the way, 

 

 

To be cheerful and gay.

 

 

All that you do, 

 

 

Do with your might;

 

 

Things done by halves

 

 

Are never done right.

 

 

One thing each time,

 

 

And that done well, 

 

 

Is a very good rule, 

 

 

As many can tell.

 

 

 Moments are useless

 

 

Trifled away, 

 

 

So work while you work, 

 

 

And play while you play.

Review: NKJV Study Bible

by Sandra Foreman January 13, 2019

During times of distress, struggles, and inner turmoil, there is nothing better than reading. It is during these times when we may seek the meaning to our lives by reading the Bible. However, understanding the scriptures and stories in the Bible can sometimes feel overwhelming. To remedy this problem, Thomas Nelson, has authored the NKJV Study Bible, which I received from The Blythe Daniel Agency, Inc. I find this study guide to be quite practical, useful, and easy to comprehend. Watch this brief video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tleEMGjjfaw for how NKJV Study Bible may apply to your life.
