Points to Ponder

I have observed the power of the watermelon seed.  It has the power of drawing from the ground and through itself 200,000 times its weight.  When you can tell me how it takes this material and out of it colors an outside surface beyond the imitation of art, and then forms inside of it a white rind and within that again a red heart, thickly inlaid with black seeds, each of which in turn is capable of drawing through itself 200,000 times its weight-- when you can explain to me the mystery of a watermelon, you can ask me to explain the mystery of GOD.                                                                                                                                           by William Jennings Bryan (1860-1925)

If we are aware of ourselves, any moment in life is an opportunity to be in awe.
