Jack’s Winning Words 3/19/15
“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.” (A.A. Milne) Winnie the Pooh asks, “Why is this happening to me?” You may know of someone who has asked the same thing. Or, maybe it’s what you’ve been wondering. Be patient! Nature knows patience. “First the blade, then the ear, then the full corn will appear.” Some seeds, found in an ancient pyramid, were planted. Amazingly, they grew. Be patient! The answers will come. ;-) Jack
FROM HUMBUG: Thanks Jack. It is a marathon and not a sprint. We must be patient, faithful, and make incremental progress every day. Peace.====JACK: I like the phrase, "Rome wasn't built in a day...but they were laying bricks." Thanks for being a brick-layer.
FROM TARMART REV: Patiently waiting.====JACK: Are the AGs Rapture people? ====REV: We are...pre-tribulation most generally; however pre-millennium in our tenants of faith. When in my theology class some years ago, I took the "amillennial" view and found it most fascinating...hoping when the truth bears forth, it will presents itself better than we find lived out presently.====JACK: We Lutherans study that pre-t and pre-m stuff in seminary, but usually leave it there. Ask our average church member about :rapture," and you'd receive a blank stare.
FROM BLAZING OAKS: AS MAHATMA GANDHI SAID, "THERE'S MORE TO LIFE, THAN INCREASING ITS SPEED." I SAY AMEN TO THAT, EVEN THO I OFTEN TEAR AROUND LIKE A CRAZY LADY! :-) OLD AGE HAS ITS PERKS, AND A COMFY RECLINER IS ONE OF THEM!====JACK: Speed Zone Sign..."DRIVE SLOW, SEE OUR VILLAGE. DRIVE FAST, SEE OUR JUDGE." Speeding through life has it consequences.
FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY: How easy this sounds but how hard it is somedays. Sometime it's seemed like Spring would never get here...but it is coming. We have a saying at our house when it seems whatever we want or need is taking so long to get here...."Sundays comin'!"
