From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 06/09/19, 5:18 AM:
|Here I sit on a pre-dawn Sunday morning in quiet North Florida, but it won't be for long. At the first sign of light, the roosters will start crowing and the barn cats will come out of their overnight resting places to look for the rodent trying to sneak some spilled horse grain before the cats spot them. It never works. Then the big dogs start their early morning fence check as the horses begin to congregate near the gate closest to the barn, sensing that breakfast will soon be served. Not long thereafter, I will approach the barn with coffee in hand and begin the routine of feeding the critters. I tune in the radio on BBC each Sunday and carry out my duties as I sing along or just hum the beautiful Christian music that is played.|
It's Sunday, precious Sunday and a time to rise and shine to watch the glories of God's nature in action. When done, I head into the house for a little breakfast before taking time for a final review of my Bible study notes in preparation for our class before worship. But those moments of solitude in the barn with my animals first reminds me of those wonderful words from the beautiful hymn, "The Garden." For you see, I clearly feel the presence of my Lord and Savior as I walk about the barn and field and tells me that "the joy I share as we tarry there" is certainly something very special indeed. And here's my prayer that each of you might experience just such a feeling on Sunday, for it's the Lord's Day, His special day, and we are all so blessed to rise and be able to partake of it. Have a most blessed and peaceful Sunday with you and yours.
Thank you, Jimmy!
