Read a Good Book
Saying for the day-You are what you read.
As I was sitting yesterday reading the latest issue of “ Classic Toy Trains” I thought of Alastair . Here I was reading about how to make three different kinds of fake water and Alastair was reading deep Christian material. I was reading how to make little model buildings look old and he was reading how to take the old , old faith and share it with a modern audience. I can now tell you about six Lionel fakes being offered on E-Bay but Alastair can tell you of a whole bunch of ways to enrich worship in a whole variety of churches.
A wise man once said that its not what we eat that determines what we are but what we read. If that’s true I’m reading all the wrong stuff.
I went through my most recent reading material there were fifteen science fiction novels, three train magazines, a large bound book on dragons, and a book by the Pope. As one who feels called to share Christ with the world I am reading all the wrong stuff.
The horrible thing is like a person who eats the wrong food I probably won’t change. I may get one of those books that Alastair reads. I might even plod through it but then I’ll be back to “Classic Toy Trains” and the next Harry Potter novel. It could be a sign of addiction or approaching senility.
@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls- The little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and people dream The Dream-It is Saturday and this morning at 2:00 o’clock the entire community ( all those that were sleeping) found themselves in Oiseaux Morts .Large numbers of them had gathered in the town square with the news that the Blue Plaque was now two towns away. They gathered around Petrovich, the wizard, who claims to be able to protect them from the Plague. A few have brought what little gold they own. Petrovich says it is not nearly enough. He needs to melt it down and make a circle of old around the town. The circle and a few magic words will keep the Plaque out.
Father Moe says that is so much nonsense. If the prayers of the church and the blessing of the town by the good Bishop doesn’t protect the town it can’t be protected. God is punishing them for their sins. They need to repent.
Just at that moment one of the two gargoyles protecting the town hall fell and crushed Alex Mattson . By the time the healing Monk arrived he was dead. What a horrible way to die. Alex’s head was caught in the mouth of the gargoyle. It was as if some creature had attacked him.
It was at this point that the dream ended. Now the question everyone was asking is will he be dead in the real world?
Will he be dead? Will the whole town die? Will that which is not and can not be save them. Will Petrovich get enough gold? And of course is Tommy UK really the undertaker’s kid?
Today's Link-Naked with a Stranger- If you thought your dog was bad you have to read this. Remember that if you leave a Dr. John in the comment you get an extra chance for next Friday's drawing.
Spent the day going through boxes at the new house. Make that one box. My wife wantted me to load a computer game and I did. I spent the rest of the day watching her play it. She went through all t he levels. It was 9:00 when we finished. Time goes by fast when you are watching somebody having fun. Now I need a breathing treatment.
