TOP OF THE MANTLE

Hello from Barbara's Entourage!

Dads, tomorrow is your day. Hopefully, you'll be getting your share of hugs and kisses. Perhaps the coffee will brewed, and breakfast will be done, when you get up in the morning.

Remembering back when our children were young, I remember almost every day was 'dads day'. The kids always had to hug and kiss him, or run and meet him, as he returned from work. They would wonder about, looking for Dad, if he got out of their sight. That's the way kids are - wanting Dad to be with them every minute of the day.

That's how we should be with our Heavenly Father. We should want him in every aspect of our lives, from dawn until dusk - from dusk until dawn. Never a minute should go by that we don't give ourselves to Him, that he can lead, guide, and direct our lives to the fullest.

*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

Hebrews 12:9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

Coming out of church, Mrs. Peterson asked her husband, "Do you think that Johnson girl is tinting her hair?"

"I didn't even see her," admitted Mr. Peterson.

"And that dress Mrs. Hansen was wearing," continued Mrs. Peterson, "Really, don't tell me you think that's the proper costume for a mother of two."

"I'm afraid I didn't notice that either," said Mr. Peterson.

"Oh, for heaven's sake," snapped Mrs. Peterson. "A lot of good it does you to go to church."

On a very cold, snowy Sunday in February, only the pastor and one farmer arrived at the village church. The pastor said, "Well, I guess we won't have a service today." The farmer replied: "Heavens!, if even only one cow shows up at feeding time, I feed it."

SNIPPET FROM THE MANTLE
A word or two from...

Office of the Attorney General

Calling him "a man of great integrity, a man of great judgment and a man who knows the law," President George W. Bush announced his decision to nominate John Ashcroft to serve as Attorney General of the United States on December 22, 2000.

"GOLD DUST" ON THE MANTLE

Hindrances to the Interior Life
Continued from last week:

2. Curiosity lays the soul open to all external things, fills it with a thousand fancies and questionings, pleasing or vexatious, absorbing the mind, and making it quite impossible to retire within one's self and be recollected.Then follow distaste, sloth, and ennui for all that savors of silence, retirement, and meditation.

Curiosity shows itself, when studies are undertaken from vanity, a desire to know all things, and to pass as clever, rather than the real wish to learn in order to be useful --in reading, when the spare time is given up to history, papers, and novels--in walking, when our steps would lead us where the crowd go to see, to know, only in order to have something to retail; in fact, it manifests itself in a thousand little actions; for instance, pressing forward with feverish haste to open a letter addressed to us, longing eagerly to see anything that presents itself, always being the first to tell any piece of news....When we forget God, HE is driven from the heart, leaving it void, and then ensues that wild craving to fill up the void with anything with which we may come into contact.

To be cont'd next week.

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880
