A friend of mine wrote this poem, his work is rather original in my opinion…this comes from his life work *in progress* called The Book of Nonsense. (he is just to my left in the blue shirt)

Chapter The Twentieth
By Kyle Highful

One day while I was bright and merry,
Standing up on certain ground,
As sunlight glew upon a cherry,
Moonbeams were falling all around.

When suddenly, my life was battered,
And my brains were out of control,
As peace was quite quickly shattered,
I felt such agony in my soul.

For hark! Hark! saith I.
Gaze upon the horizon blue!
For falling from the cloudless sky,
There cometh drops of glue.

Alas! thought I, in ignorance and folly,
It surely will stop as night draws nigh!
But the rain brought melancholy,
And continued falling from the sky.

Running now for yonder cover,
Hoping to escape the glue,
I began to realize my blunder,
As droplets clung unto my shoe.

Ducking beneath a sticky tree,
Feeling trapped under sky and foliage too,
The realization came to me,
I was surrounded by increasing glue!

When out of the blue expanse,
My rescuers I saw,
For pink elephants made me wet my pants,
And they flew through glue and all!

Finally! I thought at last,
They’ve come to help me through.
And indeed they carried me away quite fast,
As we plowed through the fading storm of glue.

    It would be important to note that this picture is the Leadership Team of Reformed University Fellowship at Texas Tech. We are assembled here with Derek Webb and his wife Sandra after they played a concert for us last year.

Thought For The Week

I want to clarify that there is no political problem that is not really a heart problem with hearts not connected to Christ. Only one Kingdom is really important, and this isn't it.

But just as it's sad to see poorly coded software, a badly built building, or an ugly city, it's even more sad to see a nation being thrown away. As custodians of this earth, we should do better.
