A good idea to halt all activity for one hour some day


"Perhaps it would be a good idea, fantastic as it sounds, to muffle every telephone,
stop every motor and halt all activity for one hour some day
just to give people a chance to ponder for a few minutes on what it is all about,
why they are living and what they really want."
- James Truslow Adams (1878-1949)

"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth,
where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;
but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

Matthew 6:19-21

I realize that my welfare is not here on earth in this era.
Give My Lord that I during my life here
make the best of it and that I always will try to live according to your values and standards.
