SHORT THOUGHTS: Today is not about the bunny, it's about the ONE that made the bunny and all living things on land and sea. It's about the ONE that strung the stars and planets in the sky and made the ocean, the sand and the sunsets. It's about the ONE that made the mountains, the forest, the rivers, the streams and the trees. It's about the ONE that made you and me and the ONE that is the same yesterday, today and forever. It's about then ONE who conquered death and now sits at the right hand of God the Father. Thank you Jesus for Your sacrifice to make a way for one such as me.

JOURNAL: As I was getting ready to ride my motorcycle to work this morning, I slipped two V8's into my motorcycle jacket, one in the left pocket and one in the right. As I zipped the pockets shut, a thought ran through my brain. (I know...scary) I thought, if you were to get into an accident, the V8's will surely rupture and if you are unconscious, you will look like a goner to the paramedics.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: I have been drinking a lot of coconut and almond milk lately. And no, I still do not know how they "milk" an almond and yes, it still bothers me to no end...but lets not get me started on that...again. I am really liking both the coconut and almond milk now and have not had regular milk for a couple of weeks.

Random Thoughts: Think how cool it would be if bald eagles were not bald at all. If in fact, they had beautiful, full heads of hair. They are spectacular as they are no doubt. But imagine one with a big red, white and blue Elvis pompadour soaring above head. Or a female eagle with long flowing braided hair with beads gracefully floating as she soared on high. Oh, how sweet that would be? I can see it all so clearly in my head and I just wish I could show you.

JOURNAL: The time was 10:43 PM and I had been fast asleep since about 10:00. In fact, “IF” sugar plums truly dance in your head while you are sleeping, I am pretty sure there was a disco dance club with a crowd of sugar plums dancing in my head with lights moving to and fro and a big shiny ball sending little light spots in every direction. And yes, of course they were all dressed like John Travolta in “Saturday Night Fever” attire.

SHORT THOUGHTS: Every day is a gift from God. In the end, you will realize that every second was also. Make the very most of what you have been given, even if it is not what you want to have. Do your very best with what you have right now instead of waiting for what you wish you had. That may never come. Live and love as if it matters...because it all matters whether you can see it or not.

JOURNAL: I was thinking last night before bed that I wished God had made our arms just about 6 inches longer. That way, we could actually scratch that place right dab in the middle of our backs ourselves instead of just almost reaching it like we do now. It would also help when searching for things on top of the fridge and reaching under the couch for something that slipped through the cushions. I think God did that to show us that we not made to do this thing we call "life" alone.

Random Thoughts: I really liked the movie, "Oz, the Great and Powerful." Why you ask...I could say, "because, because, because, because, be...cause...because of the wonderful things he does." But I won't say that.
Instead, I will just say it was done well and is worth watching. My two favorite lines were as follows: Glenda speaking to Oz...The only one that does not believe in you...is "You". The next is, also Glenda and Oz. Glenda says, "I knew you had it in you." Oz responds, "What, Greatness???" Glenda says, "No, better...goodness."

RANDOM THOUGHTS: Today am wondering about the word, “malady” and how it sounds similar to the word, “melody" and that with just a change of a couple of vowels, you actually have the word melody. So that naturally leads me to wonder that if you have trouble singing a melody...do you have a melody malady or M.M. for short? Deep, deep thoughts today for sure.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: I must have the most sensitive "gollywhopper" in the world. My wife and I stopped by McD's on the way home from the movies and bought a couple of Frappe's. While trying to drink mine, it seemed about every three to four sips, my gollywhopper has a panic attack and sent pains that made me scream like a little girl for about 20+ seconds. So when I got home, I made a hot cup of coffee to go with my Frappe in hopes of quickly counteracting the next attack. I am fairly sure that I suffer from O.S.G.S.
