I don’t know if I am running out of new ideas or I am getting tired of the old ones. Politics is getting old and tiresome. I have done Easter several times. Now I love Easter or Resurrection Sunday but my ideas are coming slow to present something new. This past Sunday was special though. As always Pastor Flack had a good teaching on how we should treat Easter. New beginnings and new hope, new vision. I have said it several times now, I love that church. The people in it and the direction it is pointed. It makes my life real and not like things are over my head or hearing a good story for the hundreth time.
It was also special because my good friends Laura and Rob had me over for dinner. Now for those uneducated people that is also called supper. Dinner has more of a holiday ring to it. Steaks off the grill, great conversation and two of the children to round out the night. Great time.
While am writing this I am listening to Pandora Radio. First song was Baby Elephant walk by Mancini. Now I have Floyd Cramer Sweet Dreams. Great music to write by.
I have thought a lot about new beginnings and how that affects me. I am 62, poor, and not as healthy as I want to be. Don’t get me wrong, Jesus is my provider and He has always come through for me. But even I should have new things ahead of me. My problem is that I wish I could or would do a lot of things. But most of what I want is not really anything worth while. They are not bad things but a Godly vision or a new beginning should be something that will improve me and help others. At least that is the way I see it. It will take some self debating and inquiries with friends along the way.
The weather is warming and it is about time to get out the fishing gear, This year I plan on doing a lot more than in the past. To much time spent on this machine. Money will be tight this summer but I hope to see the Naturals at least once a month. They play on my birthday and July 4th. Two I plan on.
I want to leave you with this. No matter your political persuasion do you think we are better off now than we were in the past. I am not talking things. Is America a better place. You don’t have to comment on that. I just want you to think about it. If you have read this in the past you know my answer.
Good night, Ben C.
