Longtown Sound 1458 GOOD FRIDAY

Friday, I got up early to test drive the old Toyota that was blemished by the attack of that crazed 200 pound buck back in November. Thursday afternoon, between 3pm and 8pm I removed and replaced the radiator, installed the new fender, hood, headlight assembly, turn signal assembly and filled the radiator checking for leaks.

So, with slow painful movements I rushed out (imagine Tim Conway’s old man character) this morning to run the engine long enough to raise the temp to normal and everything looks great. No leaks, body parts intact – I am a happy camper. Then on the way home I passed a Revolutionary era cemetery. I recalled the pines that fell during the last snow storm and the promise I made to myself that as soon as I saw someone working to clear them out, I would stop and offer my help.

The old fella I met was a Viet Nam War vet. I told him I’d be right back with a ham biscuit and coffee that I knew were waiting for me back at the house. I picked up two of those treats, grabbed a thermos of coffee and a couple blue Solo cups. And my hand truck. The old vet was a pastor and we discussed all of life’s situations and solved most all the world’s problems while we loaded those logs he had cut up from the huge pines. We took breaks to catch our wind once, a second and a third time.

After stacking the load next to the chain link fence we tossed limbs into the woods and then loaded several logs from the trunk of a dead cedar into his truck. He wondered aloud how two strangers, Christians who didn’t know a soul in that cemetery, came together to clean it up and in that time, break bread, read The Word, testify to each other, praise His Name and thank Him for the Gift of Eternal Life by giving His Life for even me. For even me.

Whatever your belief, have a most Blessed Weekend. I already have.

Just one song for this Easter Weekend.
Deborah Liv Johnson – Were You There?
