Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

The Wisdom of Brother Dave

My brother Dave, the world famous trumpet maker, called me to chat a few days ago. Here's a snippet of our conversation.

Dave: One of my clients just played for the Obamas at the White House.

Me: How could he do that? I'd be so nervous I couldn't get a note out.

Dave: Playing trumpet is his life. He lives for it. He wasn't nervous at all.

Dave: Would you be nervous knitting a sock at the White House?

Me: Well, no. I'm willing to entertain the Obamas with sock knitting anytime they want to invite me.
