** “Thumper, if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”
Wow, my left hind hoof’s a-thumpin’ and I’m all twitterpated! And I don’t even use Twitter!
** “And speaking the truth …”
”Boy, did you hear what so-and-so did …”
** “And speaking the truth in love” (Ephesians 4:15).
** Doubt, fear, anxiety, human reason
You’re on your own with that last one! Doubt, fear and anxiety are three enemies of faith and I don’t want anything to do with them. They are cast out by faith, love and trust.
** “Whatever things are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, of good report, if there is any virtue and anything praiseworthy, think on these things” (Philippians 4:8).
That’s what my wife Mary wants me to think about. Those words are very precious to her because they were the last ones her mother uttered to her when she felt her last touch.
At our wedding 25 years ago, I wrote a special song for Mary and sang it to her at the reception. The chorus was from Php. 4:8 and I called the song “Thinking of You.”

FUN FACT: It’s next to impossible for a moose to write a good love note. “You drive me wild” — everybody says that. “Your face is so elongated and heavy” — we like it like that but hardly sounds romantic. “You stand out from the herd” — sounds promising but hey, we all do. “I love you.” Let’s go with that! Now where am I going to find a pen and paper out here …
