Bipolar Comic and Daily Devotion!

Daily devotion from Bedside Blessings by Charles Swindoll for December 9th:

I like the word "gumption" because it's so homely and so forlorn and so out of style it looks as if it needs a friend and isn't likely to reject anyone who comes along. It's an old Scottish word, once used a lot by pioneers, but. . . . seems to have all but dropped out of use.

A person filled with gumption doesn't sit around, dissipating and stewing about things. He's at the front of the train of his own awareness, watching to see what's up the track and meeting it when it comes.

"O Lord, lead me in your righteousness, . . . make Your way straight before me."-Psalm 5:8
