Whiter Than Snow

Am I prophetical, or what? …Not! But in my AWANA class on Wednesday, I was teaching about snow. And yes, I knew they were predicting snow in the forecast, but around here, you don’t believe it till you see it. I was comparing how snow is beautiful when it’s coming down, and so ugly when it turns to slush; how it gets all black and grey, and I compared the ugly snow to our lives before Christ. I used the beautiful white snow to show that when we receive Christ’s wonderful free gift of salvation, he makes us whiter than snow. That was on Wednesday. Well, on Thursday night, it starts snowing. And on Friday, we awoke to a yard full of snow! Good timing, right?

On this blog, I am going to start reviewing books that I get sent to me for the purpose of a review. I am an avid reader (that is, when this old fart isn’t dozing on the couch). I hope you all will enjoy this, since I know a lot of you love to read as well. I will start blogging more, I promise, but this snow had me under (which you would think is a great time to do it, but I had a great time being with my family this weekend). See ya next time the old fart stirs from off his couch. I’m starting to feel all warm and cozy now. Zzzzzzzzzz.

The Stairs

I am going to deviate from my usual ramblings. I have read a lot of fantasy books lately, and just wanted to try some ideas and see if it piques anyone’s interest. So here goes. Evangeline was having a tough time sleeping as she tossed and turned her covers, curling up like a ball. The necklace around her neck was blazing hot and turning the color of turquoise.  She looked around the castle’s room and saw a faint glow behind her vanity. What was it? It drew her like a magnet. Evangeline pulled the vanity aside to find a secret door built into the wall. She pulled the door open and saw a set of stairs leading down,  smelling of foul odors down below. Should Evangeline go down there and see where it leads, or just stay up here in the shelter of her cozy room?

Now back to my usual stuff. When I was a kid, I was playing in the yard. There was a tree that had a bees’ nest in it. They wanted me and started chasing me, so I started running. After looking back at the bees chasing me as I was running, I turned around to see where I was.  TREE!!…right in front of me! Ouch! When I got back up, I was worse for the wear with several stings and a bruised body. Moral of the story? Watch where you’re going!

‘The Race’

Well, I’m breathing today, so it is another day ahead of me.  Sometimes it’s fun just to see what kind of things I will, uh….forget, or what i’ll do today;  like when I was reading my book the other night, and I looked down and saw a white ‘thing’ on my shirt.  I started wondering what it was.  Was it a part of my shirt? Then I remembered, ‘Oh! That’s my bookmark! Duh!’

That reminds me of when I was young.  How could I forget ‘The Race’? Many years ago, I was racing some neighborhood kids through our yards.  I got a good jump-start and was nearing the end, when I looked back to see how far ahead I was.  I turned around, and the next thing I know, I’m on the ground, bleeding from my split mouth.
Here’s a little proverb: When you race, watch out for clotheslines.  Yes, the clothesline caught me in my mouth! Ouch! I didn’t get stitches, but man, that hurt!

So, that’s basically what these once-a-week blogs will contain: funny things, or a part of my childhood or opinions.  Well, see ya next week.
