The Life of a Life-Long Learner
I've always loved the phrase "life-long learner" because if we're alive, we can learn something. Even more than one thing a day. On a good day, I'm learning something new all the time. Sometimes I learn something all over again that I have learned already. Now that's a trick. But right now I'm getting prepared for the Cancer/Illness Support Group that I'm helping to start. As I was going through my Bible looking for verses that have helped me through tough times, I am in awe of what that book has. Truly there's something for everyone. Right now I'm looking at Psalm 119, which is the longest chapter of the entire bible, so I have had to break it down into bite sized chunks. I did an in-depth study a couple years ago and have a bunch of notes in the margins. Listen to this: (from The Message) "God, teach me lessons for living so I can stay the course. Give me insight so I can do what you tell me--my whole life one long, obedient response. Guide me dwn the road of your commandments." There you go--Life-Long Learner!!
