“AT NIGHT….MOTHER READ THE BIBLE”
It only seems natural that folks adventuring into the western parts of the North American continent, during the 18th and 19th centuries, would take time to acknowledge a divine source. With this piece, I depict a young family, traveling by wagon, taking an evening’s respite to be together and read the ‘Good Book’.
I love the, ‘re-boot’. We do it with computers, why not with ourselves, family and businesses? I was raised in a family that prayed most mornings and nights….we all took turns…even the youngest at 3-4 years of age offered up words of supplication. Setting the tone….how important is it? Be it in a business meeting, family outing or sporting event, the spirit, energy, tone is huge for success (why do sports teams win more games in their home stadium? The tone set by the fans). I love how a gathering of the Boy Scouts of America often begins by saying the scout oath, law and motto. Along these lines: My wife put up a sign in our residence that one can read before they walk through the garage door, “Be responsible for the energy you bring into this home”.
