The Arboretum Cows

Which Arboretum cow is your favorite?

I personally prefer the one that is bending its head down to eat.

Six year old
Brandon decided one Saturday morning to fix his parents
pancakes. He
found a big bowl and spoon, pulled a chair to the counter.
opened the
cupboard and pulled out the heavy flour canister, spilling it
on the
He scooped some of the flour into the bowl with his hands, mixed in most of a cup
of milk and added some sugar, leaving a floury
trail on the
floor which by now had a few tracks left by his kitten.

Brandon was covered with flour and getting frustrated. He wanted this
to be something very good for Mom and Dad, but it was getting very
bad. He didn't know what to do next, whether to put it all into the oven or on the
stove, (and he didn't know how the stove worked)!
Suddenly he saw his kitten licking from the bowl of mix and reached to push her away,
knocking the egg carton to the floor.
Frantically he tried to clean up this
monumental mess but slipped on the eggs,
getting his pajamas white and sticky.
And just then
he saw Dad standing at the door. Big crocodile tears welled up in
Brandon's eyes. All he'd wanted to do was something good, but he'd made
a terrible mess. He was sure a scolding was coming, maybe even a spanking.
But his father
just watched him. Then, walking through the mess, he picked up his
crying son, hugged him and loved him, getting his
own pajamas white and sticky in the process. That's how God deals with us.
We try to do something good in life, but it turns into a mess.
Our marriage gets all sticky or we insult a friend or we can't stand
our job or our health goes sour. Sometimes we just stand there in tears
because we can't think of anything else to do. That's when God picks us up and loves us
and forgives us, even though some of our mess gets all over Him. But just
because we might mess up, we can't stop trying like Brandon to "make pancakes," for God or for others. Sooner or later we'll get it right, and
then they'll be glad we tried.
Hello everyone. Created this journal because everyone
needs a little application of the clue stick now and then.

(yes, this is where I go to rant).
I've come to the conclusion that if you:

Dont go to clubs
Dont do drugs
Dont go to raves
Arent bisexual
Tend to stay home with loved ones

That Austin is a pretty boring town. Everything seems
geared toward the "party animals". I'm 26, and feel
DAMN old - and not inclined to go to bars and blow
money getting drunk and making myself stupid in
an effort to try to pick up OTHER drunk people.

Is it just me, or does anybody else feel this way?
