Celestial destinations will not, likely, be reached if one spends their whole life, repeatedly, starting over.

When I stand before God to be judged, and He asks me to report on my life and the fulfillment of my mission on earth, I hope I won't have to say, "I did not have time to do Your work, because I was, too, busy repenting."

The older I get, the more I say to myself, "Today, I will try to make everybody think I've got it all together."

This afternoon, I put my right hand into my right pocket to get my car keys. Not there! Shifted my car keys from my left hand to my right hand, so that I could put my left hand into my left pocket to get my car keys. Not there!
It was a long walk home to get my spare keys. Just kidding! I caught a cab.

My daily search for one new nugget of knowledge, invariably, uncovers a sack full fascinating facts.

Today's tidbits:
One mature oak tree can produce one-thousand pounds of acorns in one growing season, under normal weather conditions.
It is estimated that, over the course of human history, people have eaten more acorns than both wheat and rice, combined.

(If that estimate is true, it is astonishing, to me.)

It is better to have character than to be a character.

Matched socks are overrated.

A quote from our good friend, Sandy Tilton. She has character, and is a character.

Any day is a good day, as long as you are on the right side of the grass.

I am told that this was a comment made often by greatgrandfather, Martin Kicklighter.
