  • Luck is overrated, but a charm is good to keep close

    I am a God fearing man so as far as luck is concerned, I don’t have much belief in it.
    Well, that is almost all true.
    I am a God fearing man and I don’t believe in luck for the most part.
    However, there is one area that I think a little luck comes into play and I have my own “lucky charm” to help increase my chances of success.
    I love to hunt and anyone who knows me well will confirm my passion for the great outdoors during hunting seasons.
    Deer, turkey, quail and squirrel. It makes no difference.

    Of all my well-worn, marked-up, pages-turned-down books, those written by Brennan Manning are among the most beaten up.
    Former Roman Catholic priest Richard Francis Xavier “Brennan” Manning died April 12 at age 78.
    His most famous book and one that’s beloved by millions is “The Ragamuffin Gospel.” In it, Manning proclaimed good news for the “bedraggled, beat-up and burnt out” — good news for me and for you.
