Carting Off

The nonspiritual being is motivated by achievement, performance and acquisitions. The spiritual being is motivated by ethics, serenity and quality of life. (Dr. Wayne Dyer, Real Magic, p. 47)

Suppose someone has enough to live and sees a brother or sister in need, but does not help. Then God's love is not living in that person. (1 John 3:17 in Grace For the Moment by Max Lucado, 11 February)


Facebook must have some issues. Lately the automatic feeds from this Google blog haven't been showing up in my Facebook notes. Since it is all free I'll have to admit, I really don't have much to complain about.

Yesterday we experienced several hours of high winds. Our full trash can was rolling down the middle of the street. One of the neighbors went out to bring it back. Thanks, Jim. At least two semi-trailer trucks were blown over on the highway near Thurmont, Maryland. That's close to Camp David the presidential retreat. This morning we woke up to find a light dusting of snow on the roofs and the ground. It's nothing serious, just enough to help us keep in mind that winter isn't over yet.

Ever wonder why people think "it's not stealing" when they take a grocery cart home with them? There were two carts in our development. The other day I parked the minivan at the corner, near the gas station, while I pushed one of the carts back to the grocery store parking lot. On the way I noticed that another one, stuck in a snowdrift at the traffic light is still there. I left it alone because I didn't want to do the physical exertion to disengage it from the snowbank. I've hear that each cart costs over $700.00. The one closest to the house is still out in front of the rental property along with all of the other trash that comes out of that house and ends up at the curb.
