|The Little Brown Church- Bradford, Iowa|
I know not everyone had a happy childhood or has a place of warm remembrances to return to- I know I'm blessed. But the Lord gave all of us the gift of memory, where we can escape to a sunny recollection in the winter of our actuality. He allows us to mentally reconnect with loved ones, even though they have passed into the afterlife. That's why I think The Church In The Wildwood has the capacity to touch some folks deeply. The Andy Griffith clip is priceless. The old man on the porch was pompous and arrogant and obnoxious but something started to change as Andy and Barney began to harmonize on the porch. Here's to all of our hymns of precious memories; may we still be able to sing them without a book and with our eyes closed.
Applicable quote of the day, # 1:
"There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again."
Applicable quote of the day, # 2:
"What we remember from childhood we remember forever - permanent ghosts, stamped, inked, imprinted, eternally seen."
