The 7-Ups of Autumn


A friend sent this to me this week in an email and although it’s not technically a “funny”, I loved the graphics and the adorable way some great ways to ‘shape up’ were shared! 


1. Wake Up !!


Decide to have a good day.
'This is the day the Lord hath made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.'
Psalms 118:24


2. Dress Up !!

!cid_68FCED386492481FB881976FC2A89C51@BACKOFFICE The best way to dress up is to put on a smile.
A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.
'The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.
Man looks at outward appearance,
but the Lord looks at the heart.'
I Samuel 16:7

3. Shut Up!!
!cid_58181A800D29431A80B5360A01C9C29B@BACKOFFICESay nice things and learn to listen.
God gave us two ears and one mouth,
so He must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking.
'He who guards his lips guards his soul.'
Proverbs 13:3

4. Stand Up!!

!cid_A6EA2DB03E7E4A4A984CCA42FD7F6B5A@BACKOFFICE . . . for what you believe in.
Stand for something or you will fall for anything.
'Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time,
we will reap a harvest if we do not give up..
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good...'
Galatians 6:9-10


5. Look Up !!

!cid_0CB1DE53D39D4E7EAD28B0DB26971123@BACKOFFICE . . to the Lord.
'I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me'.
Philippians 4:13

6. Reach Up !!
!cid_296048987E034952AF3AEFD85C4B91AC@BACKOFFICE . . for something higher.
'Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and lean not unto your own understanding.
In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.'
Proverbs 3:5-6

7. Lift Up !!
!cid_600999B1F691484C948210E7D27BBF00@BACKOFFICE . . your Prayers..
'Do not worry about anything; instead
Philippians 4:6

  4. Really cute - and a nice "smile" for my Friday evening. I also really enjoyed your post "at the well" this week. What a blessing it is when we know that we have found the perfect "compliment" that God designed just for us! And that really does usually involve - opposites:) Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. How very cute!

    And I love the simple, yet profound message:

    Be nice.
    Do good.
    Don't give up.
    Be strong.

    "All I ever need to know I learned in the Bible!!!"
