The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“The world is too much with us; late and soon, getting and spending, we lay waste our powers: Little we see in Nature that is ours.” – William Wordsworth

  1. Sigh. Tough words.

    Here too:

    James 1-5 King James Version (KJV)

    1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.

    2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

    3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

    4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

    5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

    6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

    7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

    8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

    9 Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:

    10 But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.

    11 For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.

    12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

    There is more. I just gave you the beginning.

    Cary on in grace
