Psa 1.2 +

Psa 1.2

“But his delight is in the law of the LORD;

& in his law doth he meditate day & night.”

Faith is

choosing to believe that God tells the truth.”

– John Whitema

TRIPS #1- of 7.  My dad, Clyde D Bryan, gave me a shoat when I was about 12. Later he sold the liter he gave me the $35. it brought. From mowing lawns (I’d guess-it’s been a long time) I was able to add $8. He took me to the Sears (“& Roebuck” back then) in Lancaster & we came home with a new “three-speed English” bicycle for me. Many times I rode it to down the lane to the road. Mile upon mile rolled under those narrow tires. And I came home. NOTE that. My trips were round trips. – 9/26/22 

Only use the world

but enjoy God.

– John Wesley

TRIPS #2- of 7. While a high school dorm student at God’s Bible School I made my first trip (as I recall) by train. [Do not confuse train here with the little “train” ride at a zoo.] At Cincinnati’s Union Terminal I boarded a huge, old train which took me to Columbus, OH. After a visit with my parents I returned back to the dorm. I came home. NOTE that. My trip was a round trip. – 9/26/22 


Many a pioneer store was made to appear

To have another story, a second tier

Seemed to be twice its size, a façade

Inflated for pride, of no real aid

Too bad. But some lives are also a balloon

Appearing big; they’ll be small soon.

“Where art thou, O Adam;

Man I made & his personal Madam?”

They answered Him not a word,

As if they had not heard.

In it’s grip, sin had’em.

TRIPS #3- of 7. In 1961 we (we became “we”) soon afterward, bought our first car. It was a blue, 1953 Ford, two-door sedan. When the right day arrived we headed that machine (At some point that Ford became “Stella Mae” after my very likeable m-n-l.) to Tennessee. After being legally “hitched” we (Dad loaned us his more dependable German-style VW) took our 2-day “honey-moon” & then on the Lord’s Day afternoon headed the Ford back to greater Cincy. We came home. NOTE that. My trip was a round trip. – 9/26/22 

Joh 1.9

“That was the true Light, which lighteth

every man that cometh into the world.” [emphasis – eab]

What parents use in moderation

the children will take to excess.

– Donald Winter

TRIPS #4- of 7. I was invited to visit the EBM Campmeeting. For the first time (at age 27) I climbed into the left, rear seat of Bud Calhoun’s 4-place high-wing plane & was soon airborne. We flew north from Hobe & landed on the grass strip in Summerfield (or a spot very near). The next day, if memory serves correctly, we (Jacob Miller & his son, David, were also aboard) flew back south. Short but very memorable journey. I came home. NOTE that. My trip was a round trip. – 9/26/22
