What one thing if dropped from your life would change your CONVERSATION?
Your CHECKBOOK? & Your DAY PLANNER?
Is that God? Or is it a god to you?

It is said (semi-sanctimonious nod)
A sport makes a “team player.”
When the man often close to God
Is a solitary, lonely, pray-er.

Samuel Francis Smith was born 10/21/1808 at Boston, MA. He edited Baptist Missionary Magazine, contributed to the Encyclopedia Americana, pastored & was Professor of Modern Languages but the secular world remembers Smith as the author of My Country ’Tis of Thee (written at age 23). He and Oliver Wendell Holmes were classmates at Harvard, and for the 1829 class reunion, Holmes wrote:
There’s a nice youngster of excellent pith,
Fate tried to conceal him by naming him Smith;
But he shouted a song for the brave and the free,
Just read on his medal, “My country,” “of thee.”

What a fantastic sight,
Pen holes of celestial bright,
Sparkling in a “navy” night,
Gifts, from the Father of light.
