Pastor’s Pondering – November 15, 2017

There is,

Among certain northern tribes,

A month called “the sap-boiling moon,”

When summer is past

And winter threatens,

Yet fleeting opportunity abides

To make diligent haste

And boil the sap,

A task that requires some knowledge

And some preparation

But more diligence

And sure steadfastness-

Yet, with some cooperation among allies

Hard work will yield more than enough sweetness

To tide a family through the long, cold winter.


Now is that time.
