“To set before mankind the common sense of the matter, in terms so plain and distinct, as to command their assent”
“To see if somewhere there isn’t something left in life of charm and grace.”
I was born in Jan. of 1950. I have seen half of one century and a tenth of another. I have seen the strong survive and the weakling go to the wall. I have seen the strongmans’ strength fail and the powerless, against all reason, prevail. I have had both feet in the grave, several times, and lived on. I have had the thing that I feared most come full upon me, and leave me with nothing left to fear. I have learned the difference between trash and treasure, and how easily one can pass for the other. I have acquired a fundamental philosophy of life: God is perfect, NOTHING – ELSE – IS.
I have worked most of my life as a carpenter; it is a trade I learned on my father’s knee. I like to say that I’ve eaten more meals off a pile of lumber than I have off a table. Construction has taught me one lesson among many; before you knock a wall down, you’d better know what it’s holding up, because that is coming down with it.
I finally found your site. You have a flavor in your wit and wisdom that is common, therefore accessible to a wide audience. Since our present world is being ravaged with a tsunami of nonsense, your input is refreshing. Keep it up!
Enjoyed reading your profile. God is perfect. You might like this quote that has meant so much to me. It is by Charles Swindol, “People are people, nothing more. God is God, nothing less.”
Thank you, I’ll stick that in my pocket and use it somewhere. Never can get enough wisdom.
