On this Mother's Day Sunday I'm sharing 10 Insignificant Insights about the Pilgrim with you. These are some of the lesser known or, 'til now, completely unknown facts about me. After reading these, please comment on what you've learned. Perhaps it will help me to understand myself. Now that's a challenge...not only for you to comment but for me to understand myself. 'Nuf said.
Here they are:
- I could sit and enjoy a Southern Gospel concert for hours on end. I'm always disappointed when they're over. It's always too early in the evening. I wish All-Night Sings were what they purport to be...All-Night Sings.
- Baseball can get awfully boring but I never tire of watching a hockey game. They end too soon, except when the Senators or the Petes are trying to maintain a 1 goal lead. Then I want them to get over with........FAST!
- There are certain old hymns which thrill me every time I hear them. I can't get enough of them. Some of them are...Grace Greater Than Our Sin, Blessed Assurance, To God Be the Glory and There is a Fountain.
- Walking in the field behind our home is one of the most relaxing things I could possibly do. I just love it back there.
- I love browsing in certain stores and could spend hours in them. Some of my favorites are Marshalls, T. J. Maxx and Winners.
- When I buy a cloth-bound book (hardcover) I take the dust jacket off and inspect the binding, the lettering on the spine and the font that was used by the printer/binder. There's so much personality in a book that the average reader doesn't even notice. have you ever sniffed a new book? I'm strange aren't I!
- I take my coffee black and when asked if I want it "double-cupped" I always decline. Part of the pleasure of drinking coffee is the warmth it gives my hands. Wierd?
- Looking back, one of the finest moments in a church was when J. Sidlow Baxter was preaching at The Peoples Church in Toronto. He left the pulpit to go down to the grand piano to play and sing a song. Powerful!!!
- I begin to relax just thinking about Sunday afternoons. I has always been a time to slow down. For 29 seasons I was the chapel leader for the Toronto Blue Jays and it was always relaxing just to get in the car following the chapels and head for home. Today was no exception as the boys and I spent some good time together.
- For some strange reason I enjoy lists and "memes" as these things are called in the blogging world. So there you have it! Another list from the Pilgrim with some new, insignificant insights.
