Slowing Down

Just a pre-Thanksgiving observation.

At age 90, Jerry Beavan had been a world traveler (47 round the world trips), had been a college and a seminary professor, served with the Billy Graham Association for a number of years, had been active in the American government process as a state and federal lobbyist, and as a journalist and newscaster … and after retiring, Jerry founded the American News Service.

I just hope and pray I can be as active in mind and body as Jerry was when or should I reach his age.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Let us learn relax and be more silly, taking all things less seriously but perhaps our dreams and hearts.

  1. We’re in pursuit of a righteous dream,
    and we’ll take danger’s cup;
    let us build a lot of steam
    and blow the boilers up.
    Safety valves are for the weak,
    those timid tepid souls
    whose world is a puce shade of bleak,
    worthy of eye-rolls.
    Are there monsters in the night?
    I surely hope there are!
    We will give them such a fright
    that they will turn to tar.
    So onward, gentle savage folk!
    Gotta break the egg to get the yolk.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
