Officially Yours … Tomorrow!!!

Happy Monday, Folks!

If you are reading this, then it must be that you had a safe and festive St. Patrick’s Day weekend! Mine was quietly festive, as I had my radar on for any shenanigans, if you know what I mean. Having been a student of history, as well as a teacher, I enjoy learning and sharing the historical relevance of holy days like St. Patrick’s Day with folks, too!

So much discontent world-wide, and seemingly even more in our local neighborhoods since that is where we live. I continue to suggest that we ALL … Stop The Violence … and my heart continues to go out to the family of the little boy shot and killed in Sanford, FL by the Captain of the Neighborhood Watch. His funeral, I believe, is being held this week, and as I watched the news last night, this “captain” is still a free man though on-lookers of the shooting confirm that he did NOT shoot this boy in self-defense since the boy was cowering on the ground begging the man not to shoot him … and only had Skittles and an Arizona Iced Tea in his pockets. Peace be still …

“There seemed not to be another living thing in all the world. There was something of bliss in this stillness, and something ominous too. It was the kind of stillness that beckons us to turn inward, toward the beginnings of our existence.” – Paul Gruchow

God, give me the courage to allow spiritual experiences to be part of my life. (TOUCHSTONES March 19th)

It is official, enjoy your first day of Spring … tomorrow!

Peace,

John I. Cook, Director
