One Hell of a Ride

He was the best!

Marbles In My Pocket ~ The Official Blog of Charles L. Mashburn ~ Poems, Short Stories, and random thoughts from the author of "Be Still... and know that I am God"

“Pa”, that’s what we called him, Luther “Bunk” Stringer, was a wonderful grandpa. His life, in my opinion, was one of historic note, and his story deserves to be told and remembered. He was by far the best man I ever knew and he was my hero. If I am one day considered to be even half the man Bunk Stringer was, I, too, will have had one hell of a ride. 

One Hell of a Ride

 

Come over here and sit for a spell

Lend an ear, I’ll give it a bend

I’ve been known to tell a tale or two

Of things that were, or might have been

 

With words I’ll paint a picture of days

When I was young and I was lean

Of course, I went straight to the internet and found the song, and as I listened to it, I cried.

That’s Enough

I’ve heard it said, “The key to happiness is to not want anything,” and I’ve decided it’s true regarding all things.

For instance, when I write encouragements, I often lament the fact my books and posts are not widely, favorably received. I want my words of encouragement to have a positive effect on as many people as possible, and when it seems they don’t, I’m disappointed.

Recently, while contemplating the situation, I asked myself, “How many is enough? One? Ten? Fifty? Thousands? Millions?” I’ve decided the answer to the question is, “Yes.” For you see:

If It’s Only Make Believe…

I’m so glad God wasn’t kidding when He said, “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.”

It seems marriage is no longer considered a forever thing. In fact, it isn’t even considered necessary (unless, of course, it affects your health insurance).
