Winds of Faith
On the Other Side
On the back cover of my Old Allis News Magazine is an unpainted WD45 Allis wide-front going down the blacktop in front of a corn field. The picture is taken close, like from the passenger of a car going around him. The young man, in his late 40’s, has his faded ball cap & sunglasses on; T-shirt, work boots, and
shorts. His lunch cooler is on the big flat step under the seat. An SMV sign is tied on the back of his seat and one of those tie-in seat pads for the old steel pan seats is under him. A determined look on his face and a casual wave of a hand resting on his leg propped up on the cooler greet you as you pass by. A beautiful thought jumps out at me of brothers and sisters in Christ going about their business in this world, with a casual & confident wave that says: “If I don't see you later, I'll see you on the other side.”
( prayer) Thank you Lord for that sure and certain hope you gave us on Christmas day so long ago amen!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
