January, 2022

This is the parent page for the posts I create in the month of January, in the year 2021. May they be just what you need. And, if any (or all) of them are not, may they not be what you need in just the right way, clarifying what you need and sending you off in its service! Amen! May it be so!

Realization can come "out of the blue,"
but even that generally requires
a good bit of preparation and planting,
pondering and perplexity.

Then, when we are taking a shower,
or mowing the lawn, 
something clicks into place,
and we shout "Eureka!"
as the planets and stars
shift in their orbits
and everything is transformed,
paving the way for the next realization.

If you aren't perplexed
and pondering about something,
why not?

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
