God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Rules - 1:4

4.  On the Sabbath day take special note of the wonderful works of God - the creating & governing of the earth, & the work of redemption.  To these mediations add the sacred practice of prayer, thoughtful attention to sermons, godly conversation, & such like.  In this manner you will rightly observe the Sabbath & keep it holy as commended so often in God's Word.  If you however do not have a conscience against profaning the Sabbath, you will hardly hesitate to violate all other commandments of God as well.

I know I said on Saturday that I would post every day throughout October & start each post with one of two of the Rules of a Godly Life.  However, I think they might get a bit "lost" being included with my oftentimes rambling posts so I have decided instead to do a separate post each day for the Rules.  I think they will be better to follow this way   : )

You're probably right...but I didn't miss the last one....They are all so sage and sound that sometimes it's hard to know how to respond other than "Amen...." Hope your week is off to a good start....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
