The Moose Of My Mechanic

So I’m talking to my mechanic the other day in his shop, and I look at a color printed picture posted on his wall.


He and his son took out a moose this year with a horn rack that was 51″ across, 31″ tall, 14″ across each blade, and had 15 points.

That got me to thinking:

1. What kind of a moose grows that big eating just berries and plants?

2. Why don’t human beings grow horns?


3. If you meet a moose in the woods and it runs you over, and no one is there to see it happen, are you still flat?

P.S. He noted that the best part of the trip was the fun he and his son had together. Bonding over hunting. What a concept.


Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
