To One and All:

... a very happy Thanksgiving Day. I myself will be out of town for a few days, after which I hope to increase the posting pace a little, at least to my usual sloth-like levels.

I was thinking, at church this past Sunday morning, about the persistence and the ubiquity of the love of God. Try as we might -- and we do! -- to avoid it, hide it, ignore it, drown it out, and distract ourselves from it, it's there, just because that's the way He is. This seems to me as good a theme as any for a Thanksgiving Day.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Jim, be safe.

I like that thought. It reminds me of the poem Hound of Heaven. I've certainly done my share of trying to run and trying to argue my way out of things. It seems I always come back to hear Him saying "shut up and trust me, be quiet and know I love you." Hmmm, come to think of it, I guess it comes down to "Be still and know..."

Awesome thoughts for a Thanksgiving, or for the Tuesday following, or for any other day, really...
