Going to Bob Dylan Concert

Eye_opening_and_closing HOPE YOU ENJOY THE POST…


"Bob Dylan in Toronto2" by Jean-Luc Ourlin

Dylan launched into a discourse on virtue. “People’s lives today are filled on so many levels with vice and the trappings of it,” he said. “Ambition, greed and selfishness all have to do with vice. Sooner or later, you have to see through it or you don’t survive. We don’t see the people that vice destroys. We just see the glamour of it on a daily basis, everywhere we look, from billboard signs to movies, to newspapers, to magazines. We see the destruction of human life and the mockery of it, everywhere we look.” READ MORE

Thoughts from Nathan Johnson, Minister March 1925

March 1925

The Wild White Rose  By Ellen H. Willis
Oh, that I might have my request, and that God would grant me the thing that I long for.—Job 6:8.
It was peeping through the brambles, that little wild white rose,
Where the hawthorn hedge was planted, my garden to enclose.
All beyond was fern and heather, on the breezy, open moor;
All within was sun and shelter, and the wealth of beauty's store.
But I did not heed the fragrance of flow'ret or of tree,
For my eyes were on that rosebud, and it grew too high for me.
In vain I strove to reach it through the tangled mass of green,
It only smiled and nodded behind its thorny screen.
Yet through that summer morning I lingered near the spot:
Oh, why do things seem sweeter if we possess them not?
My garden buds were blooming, but all that I could see
Was that little mocking wild rose, hanging just too high for me.

So in life's wider garden there are buds of promise, too,
Beyond our reach to gather, but not beyond our view;
And like the little charmer that tempted me astray,
They steal out half the brightness of many a summer's day.
Oh, hearts that fail with longing for some forbidden tree,
Look up and learn a lesson from my white rose and me.
'Tis wiser far to number the blessings at my feet,
Than ever to be sighing for just one bud more sweet.
My sunbeams and my shadows fall from a pierced Hand,
I can surely trust His wisdom since His heart I understand;
And maybe in the morning, when His blessed face I see,
He will tell me why my white rose grew just too high for me.

Have a Great Day

The Prohibition Platform For Ohio… Daniel A.Poling

MQTlogoa A Little “Quality Time” History of Ohio.


JOETODD Hi everyone. I ran across some old documents that belonged to My Great Grandfather The Reverend  Nathan Johnson. This was my first attempt at enlarging/scanning and modifying the document for use in a blog post.

NOTE: Daniel A. Poling::  In 1912 he was the Prohibition Party candidate for Governor of Ohio (he lost, but remained an unwavering teetotaler).

Silently A Flower Blooms

MQTlogoaHave a Quality Time Day


Silently a flower blooms,
In silence it falls away;
Yet here now, at this moment, at this place,
The world of the flower, the whole of
the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower, the truth
of the blossom:
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.
~ Zenkei Shibayama



CARDA Now go out there and enjoy the day.

Thanks Charlie





Life Cycle


Growing up is a weird notion to wrap your mind around. As you go through life, your perspectives on almost everything will change. How you define success will change as well. Things that you thought were important at the age of 35 will be useless when you're 65. You may not realize it now, but everything will shift.



At age 4 success is not peeing in your pants.



At age 12 success is having friends.




At age 16 success is having a drivers license.



At age 20 success is having sex.




At age 35 success is having money.





At age 50 success is having money.




At age 60 success is having sex.




At age 70 success is having a drivers license.




At age 75 success is having friends.




At age 80 success is not peeing in your pants.



It all comes full circle, whether you like it or not.

Share this hilarious truth about life with others.



May you always have

Love to Share,

Health to Spare, and

Friends who Care..
