GROUNDHOG DAY! Seriously!!

Another six weeks of winter!  Punxsutawney Phil (er, they name their groundhogs in Pennsylvania) came out of his hole in Pennsylvania this morning and saw his shadow.  This event not only predicts six more weeks of winter, it also rallies a few western Pennsylvanians celebrate the event with food, and speeches given in Pennsylvania German (which is akin to Pennsylvania Dutch).

Who ever thought a groundhog could cause such a commotion?   I took this picture of a

Cute little dude, isn’t he?

ground hog two summers ago and my good friend Carol, who is a Lancaster County farmer’s daughter from a staunch Mennonite heritage, laughed at my photos and said, “Take a picture?  Shoot it!  We shoot groundhogs.  They tear up our gardens!”  (All of you vegetarians can plug your ears and hum if you want to, but he’s munching on your salad bag.)

So let’s get serious!

Nah, let’s not.  Let’s have fun with groundhogs.

“Mom, Phil took my salad–thinks he’s big stuff since that cross lady took his picture.”

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.
