There’s a briskness in the evening air. Summer’s last heat will soon
give way to cooler days and chilly nights.  The leaves are turning pumpkin
orange and blazing red, with glimpses of mustard yellows  and leather browns
thrown in.  Crispy crunchy leaves have given up their fight and fallen quietly
to the ground to be turned into mulch for mom’s garden.

Steaming pumpkin lattes are popping up on menu boards and Monday Night
Football is on the big screen in the local sports bar.  Baseball’s World Series
is just around the corner, crowning a champion after another long season, and ice
hockey players are sharpening their skates in preparation for their drive to the
Stanley Cup.

The nearby high school football players are looking forward to Friday evenings as
they square off against their cross-town rival and go to the homecoming dance
with their sweetie.  Cheer leaders are practicing their death defying routines of jumps
and throws for the home town crowds, and cross country runners are putting in mile
after mile on their lonely quest for the best time on the three-mile course. 

Autumn brings many changes to the world as we know it.  Time to put away shorts
and sandals and get out the sweaters and long pants.  Time to break out the wool caps
and scarfs, often times in our favorite sports team’s colors.  Time to look ahead to
Halloween trick or treaters, Thanksgiving family meals, and the madness that has become
the Christmas Season.   

Perhaps it’s a time to take stock in what has transpired in your life these last twelve months. A
time to consider a big decision in your life such as having a child, buying a home, or finally
retiring.  Change is natural, change is on-going.  Change is growth.  Don’t fear it
Embrace it!
Revel in it!
Change shows that you are alive; a living breathing organism.  Live life to its fullest.

The Dodgers were finally able to secure the Western Division Championship of major league baseball.  I hope they can muster up some momentum for the playoffs. 
This is the recruiting video I was a part of a couple of months ago.  They spent more than two hours filming me and I ended up in the video for about five seconds.  LOL
Oh the poor Christians!!  I found this on my Facebook page this morning.  Christianity is under attack because more and more people are seeing thru their foolishness and leaving the churches in droves.  The young adults are especially turning their backs on religion in general, not just Christianity.  People like the Kentucky clerk Kim Davis are doing more to lead this trend than build up their faith.

Road Rage

It’s amazing to me the way some people drive,
I find it’s a miracle that they get home alive.
Some guy in a sports car is riding my ass,
Bobbing and weaving; most anxious to pass.

So I slow down, I’m the rational one you see,
The sports car hits his brakes to avoid hitting me.
Cutting off a car now he’s right at my side,
Giving me the finger with gusto and pride.

I return the finger; I’m the rational one you’ll recall,
Something, something, something, about “pride before the fall.”
He rolls down his window and he’s  yellin’ and screamin’,
I try to ignore him and hope he’s not packin’.

The sports car hits the gas and he tears down the road,
Off it would seem to his humble abode.
Road rage can occur in the blink of an eye,
I just feel lucky that I didn’t die.

The Graveyard Crew

You’ll seldom see the graveyard crew,
Those men and women all dressed in blue.
They stalk around the streets at night,
Creeping about quite out of sight.

They’re the ones who spotlight the door,
Of your open garage, side gate, and more.
They’re the ones who check the lock,
Of every door in a business block.

They’re the ones who walk your schools,
Checking doors and swimming pools.
They’re the ones who spot light the home,
Of the elderly woman who lives alone.

They’re the ones at the horrific crash,
Finding bloody hair on the crumpled dash.
They’re the ones in the emergency rooms,
Comforting the victims in their time of gloom.

You’ll seldom see the graveyard crew,
Those men and women all dressed in blue.
Their cause is just, their motives clear,
To protect and serve all you hold dear.
