The Old Fool is at Home

The wise owl sleeps on the moon on window sill at Greencroft

Yes, it is true.  Rachel and Eldon came to Greencroft for me at 3:45 this afternoon to take me home to 18399 Northrop Drive.  Crystal has found her place at my feet beneath the computer desk.

I am trying to collect my thoughts and write some of them.  Tomorrow, “Joy” and I will go to College Mennonite Church and then return here for dinner.  On Monday, she and her daughter and a brother in law will leave for the Hesston College Home Coming and a family reunion in Nebraska.

So I will need to find fulfillment in a life without “Joy”.  Of course there are other joys that are ever present and even more enduring. I have had many thoughts that I want to put into words in the days to come.  Martin

About Martin Lehman

I was born 92 years ago, the son of a Mennonite pastor and organic gardener in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. At age 10 I was baptized as a member of the Marion Mennonite Church. I own the "Old Fool" moniker because I want to walk the Jesus Way even though the world and much of the church takes me as a fool for doing so. In my life I have moved from being a young conservative to an elderly radical. I tell that story in My Faith Journey posted on my website.
