The way I see it,” she said, “a person isn’t nothing more than a scarecrow. You, me, Earl Wickentot, the President of the United States, and even God Almighty, as far as I can see.

Barbara Kingsolver, The Bean Trees

scarecrow

 

In today’s crazy and worrying world, be a scarecrow stuck up there on God’s spirit of truth, peace and justice. May God’s power make you straight and effective, protecting the precious from the harmful. You may be silly-looking, but you are useful and needful in God’s economy.
