When asked what he missed about being president, George W. Bush replied, “I do miss saluting men and women who volunteered to defend our nation during war. Many are coming home and are preparing for new missions as civilians, and I intend to salute these men and women for the rest of my life.” Bush’s library is also spearheading a program to help unemployed veterans learn new skills.

I got this in my Facebook feed: “Nothing about my birth–or yours—was random or accidental. I was born for this time–and so were you. We were each chosen for a particular, cosmically important task that can be done by no one else. We need to be diligent in listening to God’s voice calling us to that task—and in encouraging others to be similarly obedient.
That means that we can no longer overlook the grocery clerk at the checkout stand or the downcast person we pass on the street. Instead, we should choose to recognize their value, and call out their worth. It means caring enough to help the mom at preschool whose child won’t come when called, loving enough to offer a word of cheer or humor to the receptionist at the doctor’s office struggling to answer phones and still respond to every question at the counter. It means thanking the garbage man lifting bins at the curb, and recognizing the God-made-and-paid-for-soul in every person we encounter throughout the day.”

Yesterdays post was really gratifying for several reasons.There was some back and forth and a number of people posted links to interesting things I’d missed.It’s hardly possible to cover everything and when I choose what to post it’s only a guess whether anybody will enjoy it.When people add their perspective it really,really helps.Hopefully todays effort won’t be quite as off-the-wall as yesterdays,but no promises.
