I am going to tell you what happened yesterday and do the My Thoughts This Sunday today. Did I skip last Sunday? Sorry if I did. A lot's going on right now.
Anyway, my Sunday Thoughts first. I'll share a poem that was on the back of our church bullitan today.
It matters not what age you may be
To live one more hour is no guarantee
What words would they use to honor your name
If your life should end and judgement day came
Would those that you loved remember that you
Were always the one to help them get through
A hand reaching out in times that were bad
To be the best friend that they ever had
An unselfish heart that gave it your best
While trusting in God to handle the rest
Putting yourself at the end of the list
Seeing that others in need weren't missed
Only to end up in some resting place
Waiting in silence to stand face to face
Would you be worthy to whisper His name?
Would He say welcome if judgement day came
The authoer wasn't listed. BTW, mistress and I are preaching to ourselves with this poem too.
And now my exciting happenings from yesterday.
Well, yesterday, I finally got to go to the state park. There was a camp fire set up there by two of the rangers for a gathering of some of the people who were in yesterday's birding competition and also people who go to the Nature Center classes. (My mistress was in both.) It was sort of part award ceremony for the winners of the birding competition (mistress and her brother were runner up to the winner) and just for fun. They sang songs, roasted marshmellows, and told community stories. (That's where one person starts the story and after a couple of sentences passes it onto someone else, and so on and so on.) I even got to meet a "Pit Bull". Actually, Shmoo was a Staffoshore Terrier, which looks very close to and is commonly mistaken for a Pit Bull. She was great. Yes, Staffies are on the so-called dangerous breeds list, but those lists are stupid and incredibly inaccurate. Even actual Pit Bulls are great dogs. Anyway, there were some other dogs there, but I didn't get to meet them. *whimper...* Nobody seemed to be afraid of Shmoo - though we didn't see anyone but ourselves pet her, but then again even I didn't get as much petting as usual), which mistress and I thought was wonderful.
I love the State Park and want to go again sometime!
