    first a little background....my wife was not raised in the church and was not baptised until she was 30 something....i went to church as a kid and read from the bible now and then.....but for the most part am non-practicing.....
    well us heathens get married and decide we need to join a church and give our kids a foundation to make decissions from.....7 years later.....

    so today......my son is up at church checking out the construction (he is a typical guy) of a new builiding and they invite him to write a message on one of the walls ..... lots of people have written things .... and my son writes:

    "my the light of god touch your heart"

    too bad kids are not in charge

    Simple and true faith, if we could just keep it.

    What always amazes me is how we muddle our own minds on the trip between 7 and "here" and lose sight of the simplicity and beauty of all things.
