"Misty Taste of Moonshine"

I tend to over think things. There's not need expounding
on that. But I have been thinking through a lot of
end of life issues... especially the fact that there is one.

It's not that I didn't think that before; It's just... well
it's more than an inevitable fact that I ponder about.

I guess the idea of pushing it from my mind is no longer
how I want to approach the topic in my mind and with
others any more.

Merely a mist.

NIV© James 4:14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.


© James 4:14 You do not know about tomorrow. What is your life like? For you are a puff of smoke that appears for a short time and then vanishes.

These days, I tend to avoid the puffs of smoke that certainly
has in some way lead to these given thoughts.

Back to the mist.

"A New Year"

All that happened in 2011...
All that God blessed us with...
All my failures...
All my successes...
All the memories...
All the things I've forgotten already...

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself to have attained this.
Instead I am single-minded: Forgetting
the things that are behind
and reaching out for the things that are ahead,
with this goal in mind,
I strive toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:13-14 NETBIBLE

All my joy...
All my praise...
All my...
2012 for God alone!
