Tait's another smaller snow that has melted and now sometimes we hear thunder. This winter's days are numbered, and milder weather is on its way, but there is usually some turmoil in the transi- tion. Isn't that .the way with most change, there is a bumpy part of the path. We don't have a great deal of choice with the weather, but we do about lots Jus' Thinkin' of other things. One quote I came across lately put it this way, "Destiny comes to those who listen, and Fate finds the rest. So learn what you can learn, do what you can do, and never give up hope!" (no author given). Hmmm, some of the first part of that could be hard to grasp, the second part seems easier. There was a paragraph that had some additional comments. They went something like this; you will have choices and you can make those choices, one way or the other. We may then, as time goes on, find whether we chose wisely or not. To not decide leaves it to fate, or circumstance. Another way to look at it can be, are we an active participant in our life or are we passive? By our Creator, we have freedom to choose. We also have been provided wisdom to use in making our choices. The Con- stitution, in this country, through wisdom from the Scripture and study of human history, supports active, wise, informed participation.

The Cross I am the cross on the hill, on the wall, in the embroidery, on the brow. I am the cross of Calvary, infamy, victory, destiny. I am the cross of Oak, Tamarack, Pine, stained, painted, brazed, signed by hand. I am the dividing line of death and life, Good Friday and Easter, no and yes. I am the yes of God, the final say, the door through, the way to the other side. I am th e cross of people's yearning, weeping, begging, suffering. I know the people's heart. I am the one who said I will, O God forgive, it is finished. I am the heart of God. I am the cross.
