Thought for the day:

Excerpts from Gone From My Sight  by Henry Van Dyke

I am standing upon the seashore.  A ship, at my side, spreads her white sails to the moving breeze and starts for the blue ocean.  She is an object of beauty and strength.   I stand and watch her . . . until someone at my side says, “There, she is gone.”   Gone where?   Gone from my sight. That is all.

There are other eyes watching her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout, “Here she comes.”

Thought for the day:

"If I were giving a young man advice as to how he might succeed in life, I would say to him, pick out a good father and mother, and begin life in Ohio."

Wilber Wright
as quoted by David McCullough in "The Wright Brothers"

I miss Scott too.  Maureen sent this photo that she took of Sarah and her girls as they all visited Scott's grave in Arlington.
Remembering Scott on what would have been his 68th birthday.

This blog has become mostly a record of birthdays.   I realize that Facebook has become the medium for exchanging information.   Even so, I think I'll liven Truman's up from time-to-time with A Thought for the Day.   Maybe some of you will offer something of that nature once in a while.   This one was something Pastor Bonnie Gerber of All Saints included recently in a daily devotion.
World’s Wisdom
They’ve made their bed, now let them lie in it.
God’s Wisdom
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” 
Matthew 25:35-36
