“I Choose Love” — Happy V-D ’15 —

Christian author Max Lucado is a preacher with a storyteller’s gift, a pastor’s heart, and a poet’s pen.

I Choose Joy…

I will invite my God to be the God of circumstance.

I will refuse the temptation to be cynical.

I will refuse to see people as anything less than human beings, created by God.

I will refuse to see any problem as anything less than an opportunity to see God.

Max’s sermons begin at home with the congregation of Oak Hills Church near San Antonio, which he has led for more than 25 years. It is in this setting that his stories are first told, from a pastor’s heart.

Eventually some of these sermons and stories are refined and fashioned into books that are shared far beyond the walls of Oak Hills and the city limits of Texas. Max’s writings are around the world nowadays in more than 54 languages via more than 120 million products. Most of these products are books (over 92,000,000 distributed), occupying ratings on every major national bestseller list.

Max Lucado has been featured over the years in countless national media outlets. He has been dubbed “America’s Pastor” by Reader’s Digest and even The New York Times Max named Max one of the most influential leaders this century in social media.

Max’s pastor’s heart, which longs to encourage the brokenhearted and to bind-up/heal the hurt and pain, moves Max to another sermon and his next book. His mission is simple —by God— to overflow toward others His grace and encouragement that has been lavished on him and others he has witnessed.

To begin with; Max was born in a small town in West Texas, as the youngest son of an oil field mechanic and a nurse. He grew up ‘churched’ but as a teenager took a different road by walking away from his parent’s faith.

Now is the Time to Improve before the Beginning of Winter

Dateline: December 21, 2014 (official Winter Soltice)

The City of Glenwood Springs, Colorado

Why or why does the Street Maintenance Department keep making the same mistakes and operate like we are living in the 20th Century?!?

In addition to human health and safety, practical improvements can be made immediately to improve snow and ice removal on Glenwood Springs’ roads and walkways. I am miffed that NO effort was made to plow the River Walk between the Roaring Fork River and Doc Holliday’s grave.

To describe the pedestrian walking conditions within the City of Glenwood Springs as treacherous would be an understatement. Folks who have lived through many winters here have told me that snow removal has never been better in town and often is terrible.

Item #6:

I would like to mention concern about the quality of the surface waters passing through town. The routine practice of spreading large amounts of salt and silt on city roads jeopardizes the Colorado River, which supplies drinking water source for as far as Southern California.

This is nothing new but there are more environmentally-friendly ‘ice melt’ products readily available: Blue or green ice melt mixtures. Just take a look at what one property owner used along the 1000 block of Grand Avenue on the first afternoon of last week’s snow storm.

Much like Nevada and California do around Lake Tahoe, our city should adopt some of their ice and snow removal procedures (use of non-contaminated dirt and salt-alternatives) to facilitate the water quality, clarity, and non-hazardous conditions of the Colorado River.

Item #7:

By monitoring weather forecasts, the Street Department can better manage getting plows out at the first sign of snow, avoid driving idle (plow not lowered while driving), not creating melting snow conditions into water that can freeze late in the afternoon and at night (leaving more difficult ice removal and driving and walking hazards the next morning, particularly during commute hours)

No sympathies are being solicited but perhaps you have some empathy for this writer because he is disabled with no benefits from RFTA’s Traveler transport services.
