The Tin Man

The Tin Man had his oil can and Dorothy. I have some exercises and Hazel. Stiffening up is no fun. When I was younger and limber I didn’t realize I was limber. My granddaughter Flick questions why I have trouble crawling round the floor for an hour or so and eventually tell her that I’ll just pretend it in my head. What’s the problem, Gramma?

The Bible talks disparagingly about stiff-necked people. We don’t want to grow rigid and judgmental and arrogant. The Bible and the Spirit are the lubricants for us when we our thoughts and attitudes begin to freeze into judgmental shapes. May I apply as much effort to maintaining a supple soul as I do to regaining the movement of a frozen shoulder!
