Funeral Furniture

Since this is considered to be a scary month, I thought it the right time for this post. There is a woodworker who lives in our area, and he makes coffins. But with a twist. You can buy your own coffin, and use it for furniture until you die. Say, a nice bookcase or curio cabinet. Then when you pass on, your family is spared the sad task of choosing one for you.  A news paper had a huge article, with pictures of the coffin/furniture. So that is where my pictures come from. Thoughts?

Did you know there is a difference between a coffin and a casket? A coffin is a box that is tapered, and wider at the shoulder, it has about six sides. A casket is a four sided box.

Then he went over and touched the coffin. The pallbearers stopped. He said, “Young man, I tell you: Get up.” The dead son sat up and began talking. Jesus presented him to his mother.

The Dawning Of The Age Of Aquarius

Anne Marie had her first school dance! She is in the sixth grade now, and it was a Halloween costume dance. SO, she and her friends dug out their mom's old outfits from the 60's, and second generation hippies were born! Groovy, man!

The Hippies did have some good ideals, especially about peace and love. They just took the love part a bit too literally and publicly!

Were you ever a hippie? Did you ever want to be a hippie?

 “Think in harmony. Be agreeable. Do all that, and the God of love and peace will be with you for sure.” 
2 Corinthians

Two Fiery Nights

Not really fire, just fiery sunsets!

“The four creatures looked like a blazing fire, or like fiery torches. Tongues of fire shot back and forth between the creatures, and out of the fire, bolts of lightning.”
Ezekiel 1

Fall In The Valley

Signs of fall in our valley. Some are from now, and some from previous falls.
