Those who have known
have been quite content
to live out their lives
chopping wood and carrying water,
doing the day-to-day chores
and taking care of the business at hand,
doing what needed to be done,
when, where and how it needed to be done
in each situation as it arose
as long as their life lasted,
and when it was done,
they let it go,
and allowed that to be that.

The only difference between them
and us
is that we think they did not know a thing.

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.
