Medicine for the soul…
Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year, and every year Morris would say, ‘Esther, I’d really like to ride in that helicopter.’
It was coming up to Christmas and Sammy asked his mum if he could have a new bike. So, she told him that the best idea would be to write to Santa Claus. But Sam, having just played a vital role in the school nativity play, said he would prefer to write to the baby Jesus. So his mum told him that would be fine.
Sam went to his room and wrote ‘ Dear Jesus, I have been a very good boy and would like to have a bike for Christmas.’ But he wasn’t very happy when he read it over.
So he decided to try again and this time he wrote ‘Dear Jesus, I’m a good boy most of the time and would like a bike for Christmas.’ He read it back and wasn’t happy with that one either.
He tried a third version. ‘Dear Jesus, I could be a good boy if I tried hard and especially if I had a new bike.’ He read that one too, but he still wasn’t satisfied.
So, he decided to go out for a walk while he thought about a better approach. After a short time he passed a house with a small statue of the Virgin Mary in the front garden. He crept in, stuffed the statue under his coat, hurried home and hid it under the bed.
Then he wrote this letter. ‘Dear Jesus, If you want to see your mother again, you’d better send me a new bike.’
Professional opinion is taking on a whole new meaning lately… trying to research for the best in a physically healthy lifestyle in terms of what I choose to consume makes for grueling reading and a lot of greasy hours! Not to mention how completely over-whelming it becomes with the mass of conflicting information from professionals– no insult intended towards people of title, rank and IQ’s that rival Einstein but come’on! When degree’d Professionals in the same field vary so widely on the same subject, what’s a commoner to do?
Turns out there is a solution! And I’m all about playing it forward.

Everyone was amazed and gave glory to God. Luke 5:26
A place to keep poetic things.
“I don’t mean that I am exactly what God wants me to be. I have not yet reached that goal. But I continue trying to reach it and make it mine. That’s what Christ Jesus wants me to do. It is the reason he made me his. Brothers and sisters, I know that I still have a long way to go. But there is one thing I do: I forget what is in the past and try as hard as I can to reach the goal before me. I keep running hard to the finish line to get the prize that is mine because God has called me through Christ Jesus to life up there in heaven.” Philippians 3:12-14
