More Yard Work – 13 September 2006

Early this morning the eastern sky was all aglow with a beautiful rosy color, when I thought of the old saying, “Red sky in the morning, sailor take warning; red sky at night, sailor’s delight.”

I was determined to do a lot of tree limb pruning, weed whacking, etc., so out I went shortly before 7:00 A.M. Half an hour later, it started to drizzle and I thought, “Oh-oh, I have lots more work to do!” The weather report had indicated afternoon and evening showers, so I was surprised by the precipitation so early in the morning. Well, I’m glad I didn’t give up and go in, because it didn’t get really rainy, and I managed to get it all done by 10:00 A.M.


"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
