Sunday Mornin' Hope : Tall tales

Post by Psalmist on January 2nd 2016, 10:56 pm


It's always fun when the family gets together. This is the time of year I find out what happened to ............... You know what I'm talking about. It's that thing that you need but can't find anymore. When you ask at the dinner table, it gets quiet for a second and then someone changes the subject and all the kids jump in on it laughing all the way. I love Christmas and New Years. Our oldest begins to reveal what happened to... like our matching set of globes we had from Silver Dollar City. The important part is the love and laughter that fills the room. That's what I want to last. Right now there's a mean game of Monopoly going on with some of my kids at the dinner table. I think the race car is in the lead, buying up properties. Someone is already in jail.




Matthew 5:37
"But let your statement be 'Yes, yes or 'No, no', anything beyond these is of evil."




In other words, let your speech be simple and clear. But at holiday dinners, all rules are off. And what's more fun, embellishing tall tales or keeping a boring incident boring? I remember as a young lad going to my mom's parents for special dinners. Grandpa would get all of us kids around the table and tell us about the cougar that was sneaking up behind him while he was picking night crawlers. Just as that cat was about to pounce on him, grandpa turned around and shone the flashlight in the cats eyes. The startled cat ran away... Grandma would moan "Oh Earl that's not the way it went...." and Grandpa would respond "It's the truth Lil! and you know it. It's the truth." So I guess that's a good tradition that has been handed down from generation to generation.




I love my family and all the simple things we do together. I hope this year is full of simple experiences that we share together. The value is not measured by how much it costs to do this or that. It's being together and fixing or using those items before they become 'lost'. The Monopoly game has heated up. I think there might be a jail break tonight. My daughter has taken lessons from Donald Trump in finances.




This 'SMH' started out as a bike oriented issue, but lately it has been sent to so many different newsgroups; it has outgrown it's humble beginnings. The purpose has remained the same. To lift up Jesus and share the joy and hope that only comes from a relationship with Him. My bikes are in the garage waiting to be ridden. Hopefully this battle with cancer will cease soon, and I'll have the strength to mount the Wing or X. Your prayers have been so needed and appreciated lately. I think of you as more than names, but as friends and family. Your input and responses encourage me. Keep them coming. Have a great week and stay warm. I'm praying for you.
Dino

Cathie is doing great. Moving around with a slight limp and some pain after a long day on her feet. Thanks for asking.
