(Moment To Pause) 
Everything is appropriate in its own time. But though God 
has planted eternity in the hearts of men, even so, many 
cannot see the whole scope of God's work from beginning to 
end. So I have concluded that, first, there is nothing 
better for a man (person) than to be happy and enjoy 
himself as long as he can; and second, that he should eat 
and drink and enjoy the fruits of his labor, for this is 
the gift of God. (men referring to humankind) Ecclesiastes 
God made each of us purposefully, to accomplish His plan in 
our lives. He has equipped us with necessary tools to 
complete the task. There is no use clinging to past 
successes and failures. Each season brings new 
opportunities and new rewards. Search your heart and soul. 
Give praise to God for all that He has sustained you 
through, each victory He has won through you and forget 
every time you stumbled. Didn't He faithfully pick you back 
up? Now desire fresh direction,, new revelation and purpose 
for this era. 
Nature says a woman's hormonal level rules her mood and 
dictates her personality. God's Word in Galatians 5:22 
says, "When the Holy Spirit controls our lives He will 
produce this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace, 
patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and 
self control..." I see no age restrictions. It is true 
physical and emotional effects are experienced when our 
hormones change and become imbalanced, but God has provided 
many excellent herbs and remedies for our consumption. 
Also, medical doctors may help with prescribed medications, 
but by far, the healing balm of the Word of God and 
practicing His Holy presence is most valuable. Only in Holy 
Spirit's presence can we develop the fruits of the Spirit I 
mentioned. They are a byproduct of His seed imparted into 
out heart, watered by worship and cultivated by the cutting 
sword of His Word. 
Sarah was well past menopausal change when she gave birth 
to Isaac, promised son of Abraham and father of Israel. 
Miriam was a young girl when she observed her baby brother, 
Moses, in the Nile River. It was late in her life that she 
assisted him as he led Israel; God's chosen people out of 
slavery in Egypt. Mary was a young teen virgin girl when 
God blessed her with baby Jesus, future savior of the 
world. She was middle aged before she witnessed His public 
ministry, crucifixion, burial and resurrection. God saves 
the best rewards for last! Naomi thought she was too old to 
be any good for Ruth, but she played a key role in the 
courtship and marriage of her and Boaz. We are never 
useless when yielded to God's will. It has been said, "It 
aint over 'till the fat lady sings." I say, "BAHHUMBUG!" 
There are always big, beautiful sisters who think they can 
croak a tune. It isn't over until the trumpet blasts! 
Loving Father above, I bless and praise You for Your 
kindness and faithfulness. You are worthy of all glory and 
honor. I open my heart to You and yield my life for Your 
service. Accomplish those things You planned for eternal 
purpose in the kingdom. 
I yield to You to whom belongs all honor, glory and praise. 
Make the most of the rest of my life. May it be the best 
for me and the most productive for the Kingdom. Amen.
