Monday in the Fourth Week of Lent

Please forgive today’s post. It is being written by my thumbs as my computer is being repaired. This weekend I came across three nice thoughts.

This is a wonderful time to look to the night sky and watch Venus and Jupiter dance in the heavens. If you ever want physical proof of God we need only realize the science behind this “dance.”

Several of you commented on my old football coach in Algebra class telling me that if it were raining silver dollars my barrel would be upside down. I read this weekend of an Indian begger who would hold his rice bowl out for a grain of rice or a morsel of food. One day, a prince walked by and the prince asked for the remaining rice in his bowl. The begger refused. Finally after much discussion he gave the prince three grains of rice to which the prince placed three gold coins in the bowl. The prince left, and the begger lamented not turnng the bowl upside down in the prince’s hands. There are times we are all called to let go of all we have, and dicover that the reward is much greater than we can imagine. We all need to turn our bowl upside down from time to time.

Finally, we had two of our grandkids this weekend. Lila reminded us both that going to church is and can be an occassion of joy and anticipation.
