Use Time Wisely by Joe Barnett

 Be careful how you live, not as fools but as those who are wise.  Ephesians 5:15

It wasn’t Ernest Hemingway’s best-crafted sentence, but it makes the point: “Time is the least thing we have.”  Or as Alexander Pope had it: “Swift fly the years.”  You don’t need the reminder-you blink your eyes and a decade has passed.

We lament the loss of years.  There is so much more we want to see, some much more we want to do, so much more we want to learn.

And so many things that suck the air out of the time we have, like sitting in traffic and standing in lines.  And mind-numbing things that have no value; tv comes to mind.

No matter how rich you are, when your time comes, you can’t buy more.  But you can control how you use the time you have left.

 Time is the currency of life.  Spend it wisely.

Remembering the 1969 Moon Landing!

The 1969 Moon Landing is a time of nostalgia for those who lived in the Houston/Galveston area.  We all remember where we were when Neil Armstrong said, “A small step for man; a giant leap for mankind.”

Several of our members and close friends were directly involved.  Francis “Poppy” Northcutt, a good friend of Allen’s, was the first woman to work in operations in the Mission Control Center in Houston during the Apollo program.  You may have seen her interviewed on PBS or one of the major networks.

Mike Wortham, although not involved with the Moon Landing, worked with the shuttle program in 1979 and continued with NASA until retirement.  Claire Johnson worked closely for the astronaut Gene Cernan for many years and was acquainted with all the astronauts involved in the Apollo and Gemini programs.  Russ Mertens (Joan’s late husband) played a significant role with the NASA programs. Allen and Mikey Isbell were present at Mission Control during the Apollo Landing.
