I think it was my friend David that pointed me to a blog called slacktivist, but I don’t remember when or how. Fred Clark, the author of that blog, recently attended the memorial service for his friend, Dwight Ozard, who passed away on November 14 and posted an excerpt from the program. I thought the last paragraph might read better as a directive and would be an apt post for this Thanksgiving weekend:
Suck the marrow out of the bones of life, live deeply and without reservation, hesitation or fear. Breathe deep the air of spring and the breath of God, savor the depths of flavors and the best of God’s good earth; “taste and see” the goodness of God, hold the things that matter close to the heart, treasure the hard parts of loving and frolic like a 4-year-old in a mud puddle in the good, easy parts. Don’t waste this thing. It’s too good.
