Thanksgiving verse:

Jon 2.9

“But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of THANKSGIVING;

I will pay that that I have vowed.

Salvation is of the LORD.”

Marion Harris Quote

“In this country we can get four inches

of ‘partly cloudy.’”

– Marion Harris, retired South Dakota rancher I pastored – referring to the weather, 12/28/95

Truth is 100%

Truth is 100% – – – or it is nothing!

The higher percentage of truth a lie has mixed with it

the more dangerous it is.

Bronze man standing plum and tall,

To his back, a square, squat, squaw;

On her back, in his round rack

Sat a silent papoose – fat.

These three specimens, native race,

Came on that day face to face,

With Christian man and Christian grace.

– eab, 11/26/69

[1] I assigned my HSBC students (had class ON Thanksgiving Day that year) to write a Thanksgiving poem; this is what I wrote during the time they were writing.

Musician’s “hell” – all discords and unharmonious

Doctor’s “hell” – all suffering and disease

Architect’s “hell”  – all incongruous and grotesque

Chef’s “hell” – all bad tastes or no tastes

Perfume maker’s “hell” – all sulfur and foul odors

Ecologist’s “hell” – all pollution upon pollutions

Educator’s “hell” – all ignorance and worse.

(These are given to make one think – – – the real Hell will be MUCH worse.)

– eab, 1970’s


Thanksgiving verse:

2Co 4.15 “For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might

through the thanksgiving of many

redound to the glory of God.”

Larry Grile Quote


has God’s plan been in jeopardy.”

– Larry Grile, IHC, Apr 2006
