I will see you again…

Goodbye, my friend.  

To my friend…

I wish I had taken the opportunities given me to know you better.  As is typical, we think we have all the time in the world.  But our time is not His time.  We only have what He gives us and nothing more.  I am glad to have known you for the time we had.  I am also glad to know that you are in a better place right now.  I know that it is sooner than we would have guessed but the choice is not ours to make.  The world is a sadder place tonight but Heaven is much more joyous as one of its favorite sons has returned home.  It is difficult to find happiness in your absence but I know in my heart that you are home and are with our Father.  Just know you are missed and will be remembered.

I will see you again…  but not yet…  not yet.

Think about it…

Groundhog Day

So…  Today was Groundhog Day.  This holiday has been around, officially, since 1886 and I can never remember it until after it has passed.  It has never been a big deal with me (or anyone I know) so I don’t miss missing it.  You know?  However, there has always been one aspect of Groundhog Day that has truly confused me (other than why we feel a groundhog can predict the weather):  if the groundhog sees its shadow then there will be 6 more weeks of winter.  Here’s my confusion:  if the groundhog sees its shadow then that would imply that the sun is out and not hiding behind clouds (ie. not overcast, etc.).  The sun shining enough to scare a groundhog with its own shadow seems more indicative of warmer weather than an overcast day casting no shadows.  I have always thought that the symbolism was backward.  Groundhog sees its shadow = winter is over; doesn’t see it = more winter.  I know that somewhere out there someone has posted up the rational behind the symbolism and may have even backed it up with evidence.  I don’t care.  I’m really too lazy to even search for it.  As I said before, this holiday has never been a big deal with me.  I just think they got it backward and my way makes more sense.  Either way…  meh.


Ok.  I lied.  A little.  I do like Groundhog Day.  This one:
