Good Sunday Mornin'

Post by Shortgrass » Sun Feb 24, 2019 2:22 pm

I had to laugh one morning this week. As I was doing chores, I was going down the county road, I noticed a coyote coming from my left. He was wide open in an attempt to get across the road ahead of me. Just then, up jumps ol' Jack rabbit and crosses from right to left. Neither saw the other one even though they were pretty close to each other. I guess they were both just too busy care of their own hide to notice what else was going on around them. I saw it all, and just smiled and went on my way. Hmm, I wonder if there is a scriptural truth we can gather from this incident? The bible says we should walk circumspectly. What does circumspectly mean anyhow? Look it up. Have a good Sunday mornin' and smile a little this week.

Now I have homework, lol

We are in a tough stretch of weather but it's little things like what you saw that can make me smile.


My you and yours have a good Sunday and the rest of the week.

Google said it was taken from Latin words meaning "to look around" and carefully consider circumstances to avoid bad consequences. Is that what the officials are trying to tell me? :nod: :nod:
