Working with wood which has been created and nurtured by God is a relaxing and fulfilling hobby. I hope to illustrate this blog with handiwork which comes from my work and I hope you will enjoy seeing these photos. I also hope to add to essays and thoughts I have added previously to "Things Unseen".
Please, take a few moments to enjoy an incredible musical and spiritual experience. Hang around after the song is over to hear and read the uplifting message expressed. Then pass it on to someone you care about. I pray that your heart will be touched as mine was, by the words of both the song and the monologue.
Odd that a word that is used to describe the poorest of the poor has such richness at its core. You will be blessed if you take the time to explore this word. It labels all sorts of groups who have made it their mission to be a real blessing to those who need it most. They provide not only housing, food, clothing - but more importantly companionship, community and love.
And, when we manage to apply the word to ourselves we find that we are most useful to God when we recognize our own ineptitude and his Power.
