A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


More Yard Work – 13 September 2006
By Mary T. Hoffman

Early this morning the eastern sky was all aglow with a beautiful rosy color, when I thought of the old saying, “Red sky in the morning, sailor take warning; red sky at night, sailor’s delight.”

I was determined to do a lot of tree limb pruning, weed whacking, etc., so out I went shortly before 7:00 A.M. Half an hour later, it started to drizzle and I thought, “Oh-oh, I have lots more work to do!” The weather report had indicated afternoon and evening showers, so I was surprised by the precipitation so early in the morning. Well, I’m glad I didn’t give up and go in, because it didn’t get really rainy, and I managed to get it all done by 10:00 A.M.
