• I had one job. To tell my father if the fence slat was the correct height. My dad asked me, “Is it the right height?” I replied, “It’s good.” To myself, I was thinking, “It’s good enough.”

  • What if tonight was your last night here on this earth? What would you think about, pray about, or do? What would you value? Would you feel satisfied with what you have accomplished in your life? Or, would there be something else that you would want to do before heading home?


    When we lay down to sleep some have prayed the prayer, “Now I lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord my soul to keep, if I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.”


    I like the concept of this prayer because it acknowledges the possibility that we might die during the night. Basically, we are not guaranteed another day in this life on earth.
