ON-this-DATE   

 A. W. (Aiden Wilson) Tozer was born, 4/21/1897, at Newburg, PA (newer name).   Tozer was converted to Christ after hearing a street preacher in Akron, OH where Tozer worked making tires.  It is said that Tozer never owned a car nor learned to drive.  And that he made few pastoral calls.  He did pray, preach, and publish.  He and his wife Ada Cecelia (Pfautz) had six sons and a daughter.  Tozer wrote some forty books among which are God Tells the Man Who Cares, Keyes to the Deeper Life, The Knowledge of the Holy, The Pursuit of God,  The Root of Righteousness and Who Put Jesus on the Cross.  Tozer died 5/12/63 – his grave has this simple epitaph: “A W Tozer – A Man of God.”

The bumble bee was out

 

Bubbling in his flight.

 

He’s only about when its windless

 

(Or the wind is very light.)

 

For scientists try to say

 

He shouldn’t be able to fly

 

(They know so much about

 

all the truth that they come-by.)

 

He does have a bulky body

 

With limited sets of wings.

 

Never once fear, His Maker

 

Is fully aware of “minor things.”

 

Mr. Bee bubbles on, quite content,

 

Unaware of his dire predicament,

 

Climbing in/out of deep flower’s vent

 

Pollinating?   Oh, that’s a side-event.

“If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible,

our country will go on prospering”

– Daniel Webster

 

He surely sounds prophetic here – we are not prospering as a nation, and

we have left the principles outlined in the Bible.
