Hello all! Ahhh - quarterly reporting has wound down and I am once again free to blather on about things...oh goodie! (insert whatever emoticon comes to mind here...) :-)
In my last post I had just been on a plane over Florida when the shuttle was launched. This morning I was awoken at 6 a.m. by the house shaking from a sonic boom - the shuttle was re-entering for its landing, right over Naples! How cool was that?
As I walk my dog at night I have a lot of time to think about random things, but one thing that keeps coming back to me is something my friend and I talked about last week: our cosmic turn. Whether it ends up being good or not, we each get our "turn" - all the stoplights are green (or red) on a particular day, our physical ailments lay dormant (or flare up) for awhile, our lives are simple and quiet for a time (or crazy with crazy people for way too long) - you get the idea. Job 1:21 says, "...the Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away." We each get our cosmic turn - what has yours been lately?
I will leave you with this thought: It is not possible to skip without smiling! (try it sometime)
Have a great weekend!
Skipping and smiling, VG
“The LORD bless you
and keep you;
the LORD make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”
