October 23, 2006



Last night I asked my wife if she had ever seen that painting you have attached to this post. I guessed that 70% of the homes I had been in growing up had this one or its counterpart. Anyway, I hadn't thought about it for awhile and don't know why I though of it then. I even thought about looking it up on the internet. Then, this morning I look at your blog and the very painting that popped in my head last night was there in front of me. Very strange.

George - I had never seen it until my sister-in-law gave me a print that's now framed above my desk. Your story is weird - too much pumpkin gooey cake in your system, I think.


I realized that my initial comment may have been unclear - I asked my wife about it before Matt posted it.

Yes, the powers of pumkin are hard to tame.

That painting was required decor for CRC folks in western Michigan. I like that old guy, he seem like a wise, salt-of-the-earth kind of guy. The painting has a companion, a lady praying. I think she might be wearing a bonnet.


Shows how much I know, apparently it is a photograph (though the photographers daughter made oil painting of it).

Having been at the service and the Reformation conference, I agree wholeheartedly with your positive assessment.

Praise God!
