"The best laid schemes of mice and men / Go oft awry."
I once again thank those who I call my loyal readers. I occasionally hear from some that read my daily blogs and I even have heard them being quoted from a time or two. Obviously I do them because I enjoy the challenge of putting words on the electronic page. What's that you say? No. I am not attempting to see how many words I can use to say so little. I've never dodged the charge of being wordy. God inspired the Apostle Paul to write some of the most astounding truths in our Bible, and many folks say his style is very wordy. I don't claim inspiration, especially in the Biblical context, but I am glad to identify with the charge of wordiness. Just joking. I did elect to get on with the Santa look a little earlier than before. Some days I wear red. Red shirt, red suspenders, and a red ball cap. One person asked me if I was doing that intentionally. Now I ask you, does anyone think I could get dressed in the dark and end up looking like that? Of course I do it intentionally. And, it works. One evening at the pizza place I was sitting inside waiting and folks passing on the sidewalk outside would go by and then they would return to get another look, or maybe call their children. Also, I get those looks at the drive through and the good news, it almost always produces smiles all around. That's a good thing, even in the sweltering heat of August, and, not bad for a Hornbeck boy. Right? Have a great Monday and may God bless each of us as we seek to honor Him with the life He has given to us. Amen. .....More later.
