* I have come to believe... -that prayer is incalculably important. -that words hurt longer than sticks and stones. -that being smart is not as important as being good...not even close. * -Dr. Nicholas P. Barker Nov. 25, 1937 - Dec. 24, 2009 HT:Catie
There is far more danger in a public monopoly than there is in a private monopoly, for when government goes into business it can always shift its losses to the taxpayer. The Government never really goes into business, for it never makes ends meet, and that is the first requirement of business. It just mixes a little business with a lot of politics, and no one ever gets a chance to find out what is actually going on.
I like words, images, graphic design, well-turned phrases, doodling, humor and profundity. These are found in every quarter and I'm always on the hunt. I was rescued (in November, 1974) from guilt and a stubborn irrational belief in an impersonal chance universe (with the accompanying hopelessness). I'm now convinced that nothing is more obvious or worthy of our attention than our Creator and the one true ancient path. Only Jesus has the words of everlasting life. Like John Newton "I once was lost but now am found, was blind but now I see."
