LIVING UNDER GRACE

George Burns was a famous American actor and comedian who died some years ago at the age of 100. He was also known for his love of cigars. When he was 95 years old, he found himself at odds with one of his favorite hangouts – the card room of the Hillcrest Country Club of Beverly Hills where he went to play bridge almost every afternoon. For when he arrived one day he saw a newly posted sign that said, “No Smoking.” So Burns fired off a letter to the country club board of directors informing them that as a Hillcrest member for more than 50 years, he had no intention of giving up smoking his cigars during his almost daily bridge games.

MOVING ON WITH GOD

Exodus 12-14 Earlier in our married life, Daniela and I lived in the US state of Maine for several years. The thing Maine is most famous for is its lobsters, which we enjoyed on a few occasions. The cold water of the Atlantic Ocean along the rocky coast of Maine forms a perfect habitat for lobsters. Lobsters, of course, have no inner skeleton. There is simply soft tissue on the inside, which is enclosed by its shell, or exoskeleton. That hard shell protects the lobster from its enemies. But the shell does not grow. Lobsters themselves, however, keep growing as long as they live. That means that throughout its life a lobster must every so often go through the molting process. When the outer s
