Do the Next Thing...

Okay, in an email I got this morning, there was a poem I really liked, so I'm sharing it!

Do The Next Thing

"At an old English parsonage down by the sea,
there came in the twilight a message to me.
Its quaint Saxon legend deeply engraven
that, as it seems to me, teaching from heaven.
And all through the hours the quiet words ring,
like a low inspiration, 'Do the next thing.'

Many a questioning, many a fear,
many a doubt hath its quieting here.
Moment by moment, let down from heaven,
time, opportunity, guidance are given.
Fear not tomorrow, child of the King,
trust that with Jesus, do the next thing.

Do it immediately, do it with prayer,
do it reliantly, casting all care.
Do it with reverence, tracing His hand,
who placed it before thee with earnest command.
Stayed on omnipotence, safe 'neath His wing,
leave all resultings, do the next thing.

Looking to Jesus, ever serener,
working or suffering be thy demeanor,
in His dear presence, the rest of His calm,
the light of His countenance, be thy psalm.
Do the next thing."

Second, I saw a story on the news this morning that just really upset me....This little mailman in Apex ,NC was stressed out and started burying people's junk mail in his back he's in trouble. I ask...WHY??? Shouldn't the man be getting a medal?? SHouldn't we be putting the people who SEND that junk mail in jail instead of the poor little overworked post man?? LOL! Wow> What a world we live in!! Have a great day!
