Give Me That Mountain

Thanks

Day two...

People who are quick to thank God for just about everything that happens to them can be quite annoying. Those are the people who are thankful that the latest door ding was not so deep, that the flight was delayed by only forty‐five minutes, that gas only went up ten cents a gallon, that only seven out of the nine signals on the way home were red. They may be thankful, but I am thinking, “Come on… why does this stuff have to happen in the first place? Why be thankful for something that shouldn't have ever happened?”

Day three...

I am thinking about starting a new cab company in Washington D.C. called “Opinions Unlimited.” I will probably have trouble finding investors because I'm not interested in making a profit. My only goal is to drag politicians out of office and put them each behind the wheel of a cab, where their opinions can no longer hurt people.

Day four...

Prairie State Park is a short drive from our house. Being a fan of westerns, my imagination goes wild when I see the buffalo wandering around in the tall prairie grass.

Day five...

The preparations for the storm were made yesterday—generator ready for action, fresh gas in the cans, tub filled with water for flushing, countertop covered with containers full of drinking water. Sherrel and I both had the same anticipation that evening: “Feels like being a kid—watching the snow fall and hoping they cancel school tomorrow.”

Day two...

A couple of interesting “facts” from North Korea's official website (www.korea‐dpr.com) under the heading “Business in DPR Korea”:

  • Highly qualified, loyal and motivated personnel. Education, housing and health service is provided free to all citizens. As opposed to other Asian countries, workers will not abandon their positions for higher salaries once they are trained.
  • Stable. A government with solid security and very stable political system, without corruption.

Day three...

Justice is a big word. We want justice for ourselves… for those we love… for those we think are mistreated. But justice defined by human opinion is not true justice; it is deception. As an example, the legislation (passed over the last half‐century here in America) demanding justice for the poor should have resulted in less poor folks. But the poor are increasing in numbers. How is this justice?

Day four...

If we want to stop being fooled, we have to begin to see justice from God's perspective. Studying Esau's life reveals to us just how different God's view of justice is from ours. If you haven't already, please study yesterday's article before continuing.

The Work We Do

Day two...

One day Dad left my youngest sister and me alone in the pickup while he visited with a neighbor. Farmer's pickups are a treasure trove of gadgets to get a boy into trouble—pliers, screwdrivers, old license plates, twine, wire… all piled on the dash and the floor, in no logical order.
