God makes a way for us to enjoy: The Local Garbage Brigade

Ecclesiastes 3 counsels us that there are seasons in our lives, and one of those seasons is to rejoice or be happy.  I praise God for that because there is a need to lighten up.  Note especially verse 4 in the passage below.


Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (NKJV) 

To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:

A time to be born,
    And a time to die;
A time to plant,
    And a time to pluck what is planted;
A time to kill,
    And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
    And a time to build up;
A time to weep,
    And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
    And a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones,
    And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace,
    And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain,
    And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
    And a time to throw away;
A time to tear,
    And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence,
    And a time to speak;
A time to love,
    And a time to hate;
A time of war,
    And a time of peace.

Most of you know that Pastor G and I live in a senior mobile home park.  It’s lovely here, and we are indeed a small community of about 70 residences including recreational vehicles and mobile homes.  Park fees include garbage disposal, but we need to go to a central point to trash our trash.  Most of us use our cars for this, and it’s so fun to watch what we call the garbage brigade pass by our place on the way to the dumpster.  Some place their trash in the trunks of their vehicles, but most place sealed bags on the outside. We’ve seen bags on top of the trunk.  Those bags usually slide off on the way to the dumpster, but creatures of habit that we are, some just don’t seem to learn that.  Seems like every time we see them dumpster-bound, that’s what they do! Others place their bags on the top of their vehicles, which is also not a very safe place for the garbage, since it, too, can slide off the vehicle.  Pastor G and I have fun predicting what’s going to happen to the traveling trash.  Still others place their trash on the hood of their vehicles.  This is indeed the “preferred” method, for we have not once seen a wayward bag on the road from those using this method.  So, guess which method we use?  Right, the hood gets the trash.

Hope you  enjoyed our dumpster story.  And we pray your trash makes it to the dumpster in the best way possible!  Be physically and spiritually safe and be blessed.
