Think on this...

We started this month challenging ourselves by living up to the name of this month - yes...be august all your life. We built on this and also touched on different other matters.

I finally found and have been reading a book Beryl recommended last year. As this month wraps up, I'd like to seize the opportunity to encourage us to cease from wishing we were someone or somewhere else. Just be august each and every month- where you are...

On page 43 of his engaging book: “If you want to walk on water, you’ve got to get out of the boat”, John Orteberg says, "At the end of the day, God will not ask you why you didn’t lead someone else’s life or invest someone else’s gifts. He will not ask, What did you do with what you didn’t have?
Though, He will ask, What did you do with what you had?

Comparison is not an adequate excuse for the tragedy of an unopened gift."

Don't be a tragedy - open that gift and be august!
