  2. None of us is large and in charge, for all time. The Christ allowed Himself to be humiliated, not only to heal our collective wounds, but also to impart a real-time message, illustrating what St. Matthew would write, on His behalf.

    I find myself much more often in the feather duster role, than the peacock role. But the good Lord knows what I need. And I try (not always succeeding) to have a peacock attitude even when I’m being used as a duster. As a nurse reminded me last time I was in the oncologists office for a check-up (and celebrating 12 years since battling 4 different cancers, two of which were stage 4), “God is good; all day, every day.” Besides, we NEED dusters; peacocks are just for pleasure once in awhile.
    Another great post, Mitch. Thanks for sharing your insights with the rest of us.

  5. LOL!!! What a great paraphrase. That should bring some of us down a notch or two.

  8. I’d be happy as a sparrow. Then I’d be able to fly. 🙂

    Reblogged this on praise2worshipdotnet and commented:
    We are going through a transition now from overworked indispensable in our church and with our friends to being the unknown older couple in the crowd. It feels like feather dusters are way more useful right now. But God has a plan for all of us and only He defines what is really useful!

    At least that beauty has continued value once it is lost from it’s original purpose. 🙂
