CHRIST IN WINTER: Reflections on Faith from a Place of Winter for the Years of Winter… ©

Old people worry
about their memories,
the ability to recall
where they put their glasses
or what was on the grocery list.
As I grow old,
“Puny and Feeble,”
as old folks were labeled
in the membership book
of the Solsberry Methodists,
a good name for a rock band
at the senior center,
I have this nagging feeling
of something left undone…

World peace
Global warming

I knew there was something else
I meant to do…

John Robert McFarland

The “place of winter” mentioned in the title line is Iron Mountain, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, where people are Yoopers [UPers] and life is defined by winter even in the summer! [This phrase is explained in the post for March 20, 2014.]

You don’t have to bookmark or favorite the CIW URL to return here. Just Google Christ In Winter and it will show up at the top of the page.

I tweet, occasionally, as yooper1721.
