LYNN JONES: A fellowship of encouragement

Down home, a man decided to go into business for himself. He had always wanted to have his own sawmill; so when he had the opportunity, he bought one. He moved the mill near his home and was soon in business. He carried his old mule over to help pull some of the heavier loads around the mill. He also hired three men to help him run the mill.

LYNN JONES: The challenge of waiting

We tend to be in a horn-honking, microwaving, Fed-Ex mailing, Amazon-ordering, fast-food eating, express-lane shopping hurry. Robert Levine, in his book "A Geography of Time," suggests the creation of a new unit of time called the “honko-second.” According to Levine, the “honko-second” is the time between when the light changes to green and the person behind you honks his horn. He claims it is the smallest measure of time known to science.

LYNN JONES: An undelivered Mother's Day card

Because my ministry often carried me many miles from my home in Louisiana, I usually did not get to spend Mother’s Day with my mother. To let Mother know that I was thinking of her, I always tried to send her a nice card and call her on that day. Sometimes, my card was running late in the mail, so as Mother’s Day approached in 2007, I determined not to let that happen again. I mailed the card early in the week so that she would get it before Mother’s Day.

LYNN JONES: God is a wonderful shepherd

John Graves wrote books and taught writing for a living. For a pastime, he raised a few cows and goats on some land southwest of Fort Worth. He never grew any sheep, citing the adage, “A goat is always looking for a place to get out, but a sheep is always looking for a place to die.” I wish I had read at an earlier age this adage that Graves related.

LYNN JONES: God is calling you to live a 'hope-full' life

Paul Powell, a longtime pastor, said he was driving down a highway in East Texas when he saw a church sign with an arrow pointing down a country road. The sign said, “Little Hope Baptist Church — 3 miles.” Powell said if he were pastor of the Little Hope Baptist Church, his first action would be to start a movement to change its name.
