    I have been reading the book of Joel, it only has three chapters, but they are so powerful. We read many stories or accounts of God’s people straying from his love, his teachings and pursuing their own ways.

    Without the protection of the Heavenly Father and relying on their own abilities there were often overwhelmed and defeated. Just as today God does not force his will on is we choose the latter.

    “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” Galatians 6:2.

    The year 1970 was an emotional, touchy-feely time. The nation had experienced a decade of turmoil with political assassinations, riots on college campuses, and an unpopular still-raging war. 

    Suddenly the Jesus Revolution had swept the west coast and was moving east. 

  •  The last of the purple martins departed Highcliff on Aug. 9. The colony site by the garden is now utterly silent. I miss the cheerful martins and all the life that they bring to the farm. 

    But, they’ve got their schedule, dictated by the instinct instilled in them by Mother Nature to follow, while we humans have our timetable to follow.

     I won’t be crossing the Gulf of Mexico on a wing and a prayer like the martins. I won’t be flying over the rainforests of Brazil, down below the equator, like the martins.

    Job, said “Man is born to trouble as surely as sparks fly upward” Job 5:7.
