Color Me Alive..

For some people, the new spring grass, the fragrance of flowers in bloom, and the call to "play ball" is the time of year that springs them into motion.  For others, the freshly fallen powder on the mountain calls their name. For me, I need to look no further than the mountain across the way from our home to feel the thrill of passion, the beauty of life, and the artistic work of the Master Painter. Yes, is there anything more beauty full than Autumn in Wallace?


How To Be Wise

How does a man become wise? The first step is to trust and reverence the Lord! Only fools refuse to be taught. Listen to your father and mother. What you learn from them will stand you in good stead; it will gain you many honors.
Proverbs 1:8-9 TLB

Dismal, cheerless, dark, dreary, drab, bleak, hopeless, and, well, I am running out of adjectives that describe the local football season so far.

9/7-Clearwater Valley-62-Wallace 8

9/14-Kootenai -42-Wallace-0

9/21-Potlatch-48-Wallace-0

Well, you get the picture. Dark days, indeed.

Tuesday Truth

Don’t do anything for selfish purposes, but with humility think of others as better than yourselves. Instead of each person watching out for their own good, watch out for what is better for others.
Philippians 2:3-4 CEB

The Past Is Not What It Use To Be -Reposted From 9/13/2013

Strange thing, history. When we were in school we had page after page of dates, times, names, events, and places shoved down our throats, Then, when we got to college in the seventies, we were told that none of the things that we had learned were true, or at the very least that they had been misinterpreted.  The guys that use to be the "good guys", were now the "bad guys", and the ones who had been the "bad guys" were now the "good guys". Quite confusing, history.

So, my question is this. Who do we believe? It seems to me that history is entirely a subjective subject, and the constant whine to rewrite it comes mostly from those who were on the losing side of things. Hm, I think that I am on to something there. Someday, our kids will no longer learn how the Japanese maliciously and without provocation attacked and killed thousands of innocents people in the second World War. Someday our kids will probably be taught that US policy caused the unspeakable horror of 9/11.

Yes, history is in the eyes of the beholder. I had to laugh when I read a quote from some "intellect" at NIC concerning the renaming of the Fort Sherman Park.

With the stroke of a pen, you can rewrite history, so we had to get it right," said Rhonda Smalley, a 24-year NIC employee who works in the campus mail and copy center\
So, why is someone who works in the mail and copy center the one who can rewrite history?
Wow, I must have missed that one somewhere. Well, sorry gang, that sentence said it all, The left is rewriting all American history at an alarming rate, I hope that we come to our senses soon.

Yogi Berra said it best. " The future ain't what it use to be." Well, the past must not be, either.

Thursday Thought

But, “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.” For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends.

Wallace On Display

Culture-the way of life of a particular people, esp. as shown in their ordinary behavior and habits, their attitudes toward each other, and their moral and religious beliefs
 the arts of describing, showing, or performing that represent the traditions or the way of life of a particular people or group; literature, art, music, dance, theater, etc.
https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/culture 

So, that is what culture is. In a town, the culture is also interchangeable with the "heart of the town", the pulse, the vibrations, the feeling. Every town in America has a culture, known or unknown to the residents, it does permeate and dictate the way they feel about their town, their neighbors, their schools, religious institutions, and most of all, how they feel about themselves. 

I wonder how the current residents of Wallace describe the culture in Wallace now as opposed to the culture of days gone by. 

I am going to ask around, think about it myself and get back to this blog subject later.

Have a great Sunday.

It's Too Noisey.

I am tired of the noise, and I am tired of the strife. I am tired of the name-calling, and I am tired of the schoolyard immature "your side did it, so our side can do it" comebacks. I am not calling out either political party or any one person. I am just asking for a little peace and quiet.

I am tired of the noise.
