Hunt * to put food on your table, woodsy aromas in your nostrils, wind/animals sounds in your ears, nature scenes in your memory and, as you communicate with God out there, peace in your soul. What benefits!

* mushrooms, ramps, fiddle-head ferns, poke, black(& other) berries, wild grapes, puff balls, hickory(& other) nuts, and various birds/animals

Isa 57. 15

I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit,

to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

radical step

The “need” for drugs is repeatedly a created need – legal or illegal. If you are not on drugs, IF POSSIBLE stay off them. If your are one drug do all in your power to not increase that to two. Drug addiction is allegedly rampant with many christians taking pills for this or for that. If a radical change in diet would get you off of drugs take that radical step.

Do you know the love of those behind you

Parents would remind you.

They do love you so.

Do you know the love of those before you

Children adore you;

Follow where you go

Do you know the love of those beside you

The church resides too,

In love’s even flow.

Do you know the love of God above you

His Spirit loves you,

Dear Christ lets that show.

When in the 7th & 8th grades

Mom, Dad, & I lived where our lane pulled out onto US 22. That was before interstates; 22 was a main trucking route between NYC & Cincinnati. Our place had a high bank & the highway curved so headlights would search that hillside as they headed east. Dad made (or had made, don’t recall which) a sign 4’ high x 8’ long & placed it to be seen by east-bound traffic. From the lower left to the upper right corners stretched “ETERNITY.” This left an upper left triangle where Dad placed the word “Heaven” & a lower right triangle where he had “Hell.” We’ll never know how many saw, thought, & prayed after seeing Dad’s sign.

Thanks Dad, for your concern about souls in that day, in that way.
