My World This Morning
The lake behind our house, in the backyard.
The lake in front of our house, across the street.
One thing I love about living in Western New York? In our nearly 16 years here, we've only once had a kinda-sorta-maybe drought. Mostly we're like, "Enough already with all the water!"
And trust me, I'm grateful.
Oh! Good ol' Ben Stein has done it again. This past week I thought those very thoughts while watching the nightly news, but Ben this morning stated them way more eloquently. If you don't agree with Ben in this piece, well, you don't agree with me (but I think we will both survive that). :)
"Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you give it shall be measured to you again." ... Luke 6:38
"Freely you have received, freely give." Matthew 10:8
"...remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.' " Acts 20:35
