Thoughts - October 15, 2016

"The game of life is the game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later with astounding accuracy." -Florence Scovel Shinn, writer, artist and teacher (1871-1940)
Years ago, I gave a children's sermon on this topic. I held a boomerang in my hand and (jokingly) offered to demonstrate (picture lots of stained glass windows....). Did you know that on an airplane a boomerang is considered a weapon? That is how accurate some hunters were/are with the implement. And it is true, or has been for me, that thoughts, words, and deeds either come back to haunt or to help me. Call it karma, label it cause/effect -whatever. The older I get, the more careful I am, especially with my unkind thoughts. Those seem to come back and bite me! - Beth Almond Ford
