FORGIVENESS begins by rising above the war, looking beyond the uniform, and choosing to see the other, not as a foe or even as a friend, but simply as a fellow fighter longing to make it home safely. (Max Lucado)
Knowing about God is crucially important for the living of our lives. As it would be cruel to an Amazonian tribesman to fly him to London, put him down without explanation in Trafalgar Square and leave him to fend for himself, so we are cruel to ourselves if we try to live in this world without knowing about God - whose world it is and who runs it. The world becomes a strange, mad, painful place - and life in it a disappointing and unpleasant business for those who do not know about God.
I SUPPOSED I knew my Bible,
Reading piece-meal, hit or miss;
Now a bit of "John" or "Matthew,"
Now a search of "Genesis."
Certain "Psalms"-- the twenty-third,
Twelfth of "Romans", first of "Proverbs."
Yes, I thought I knew the Word.
But I found a thorough reading
Was a different thing to do,
And the way was unfamiliar
When I read the Bible through.
Ye who treat the Crown of Writings
As you treat no other book --
Just a paragraph disjointed,
Just a crude, impatient look --
Try a worthier procedure,
Try a broad and steady view;
You will kneel in very rapture
When you read the Bible THROUGH.
The Bible in 50 Words!
Said the Robin to the Sparrow:
"I should really like to know
Why these anxious human beings
Rush about and worry so?"
Said the sparrow to the Robin:
"Friend, I think that it must be
That they have no heavenly Father
Such as cares for you and me.
THE GREATNESS OF GOD
As the marsh-hen secretly builds on the watery sod,
Behold I will build me a nest on the greatness of God:
I will fly in the greatness of God as the marsh-hen flies.
In the freedom that fills all the space ‘twixt the marsh and the skies.
By so many roots as the marsh-grass sends in the sod
I will heartily lay me a-hold on the greatness of God.
As a puppy, Sean saw that he was going to lead a dog's life - unless he stopped being a dog. So he began to act like a human being.
Ruth, our favorite cat, is in heaven now - but her spirit resides on this website. "We miss you, Ruth!"
This is Gina, our beloved Cavachon. We should have named her Ginger (she can tap dance), or Goldilocks (for her golden locks) , or Phyllis Diller (because she
looks a lot like her).
