Trust30 Day 4 Biggest challenge

That which each can do best, none but his Maker can teach him,

Where is the master who could have taught Shakespeare? Where is the master who could have instructed Franklin, or Washington, or Bacon, or Newton? . . .

15 minutes to live Day 1 #Trust30

We are afraid of truth, afraid of fortune, afraid of death, and afraid of each other. Our age yields no great and perfect persons. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

My Gray Pony


This weekend we laid to rest a long time family friend. She was a dear, sweet lady. I was asked to take part in the Eastern Star funeral service as the President. 

 

I was the first to speak from a written program to tell the story of my gray pony. When I was a very young child, the Pursley’s ran and 5 and dime store in Duncanville. They had a display case full of ceramic trinkets. Any time I went to the store, I stood in front of the display cabinet dreaming of being old enough to buy something from the cabinet.

Does book burning bother you? - May 10, 1933 Book Burnings in Germany

On May 10 in 1933, the Nazis staged massive public book burnings in Germany. There is nothing more disturbing for those of us who love books, than stories of book burnings. Actually it is almost impossible to believe if we didn’t have it recorded in photos and videos.

Mother's Day 2011

Are there no secrets any more? (A blast from my past)

 

What does it say about our world, if in a remote place like Abbottabad, Pakistan, you can’t conduct a secret mission? You’ve heard the stories of the tweets coming from bin Laden’s neighbors who inadvertently tweeted the on-going details of the US Raid. It touched my heart that the tweeter was an IT consultant.
