Thoughts for Today

  1. Have you ever experienced "chickens coming home to roost?"
  2. Do you believe in signs?
  3. What signs do you look for in determining a course of action?
  4. What do the signs augur for us as a nation in the days ahead?
  5. What do you tend to do when the signs are not propitious ? Do you allow things the opportunity to play out? Or do you take a more active role in trying to determine their outcome? How do you determine which approach is most appropriate?
