WordPress confusion

Are WordPress stats and subscribers real? I know I’ve probably been doing this for too long to just now be writing this kind of blog, but it’s bothered me for a while. I want to keep writing to honor my God, but I’m not sure I should be doing it on WordPress. There’s too manyContinue reading “WordPress confusion”

Were you the tree?

It’s really starting to feel like we’re coming out of this Covid darkness. The increased optimism and sense of normalcy is starting to become more and more evident with each passing day. This feeling is sneaking up on me, almost to the point that I’m forgetting how grateful I should be. I guess I wasContinue reading “Were you the tree?”

Nonsense news

I thought for sure that all of the major news outlets were following my blog, but I guess they’re not, because they are not following my advice about avoiding nonsensical, unimportant, sensationalistic stories. This morning on Good Morning America they reported on a side effect of the vaccines that causes a heart problem. Okay, thatContinue reading “Nonsense news”

Jesus busts a cap in the leper

I was thinking back this morning to those verses in Matthew where a leper approaches Jesus, and gets a little too aggressive with his pleas for healing, and Jesus has to drop him with his Smith and Wesson. Oh wait, wait, wait…. that doesn’t sound right. Oh, I’m confusing it for the time in LukeContinue reading “Jesus busts a cap in the leper”

Fore!

I found this great set of verses in the sixth chapter of Proverbs that seems to go with someone that’s been in the news a lot in the last 5 years or so. It goes like this… “A soundrel and a villain goes around with crooked speech, winking the eyes, shuffling the feet, pointing theContinue reading “Fore!”

Just a few things, God

As I was mowing my yard this morning, it occurred to me once again how lucky we are to have such a loving, and amazing Deity, but it also occurred to me that there are a few things that I wish were different. So, I don’t mean to look a gift Creator in the Omnipotence,Continue reading “Just a few things, God”

Letting go

I’ve been trying to do some painting recently – abstract art mainly, and I find I make much more interesting paintings when I have no idea what I’m going to paint. I do my best work, when I put a bunch of paint on a canvas and just start spreading it out. Eventually it takesContinue reading “Letting go”

58 percent

58% of adults in the U.S. have had at least one Covid vaccination shot now. That’s pretty good I guess, but it seems like it should be higher. I was curious about the rates for other vaccines, so I went to the CDC “FastStats”, and found that in 2015, the following percentages of kids wereContinue reading “58 percent”

Stuff units

I tried to walk into my middle and youngest daughter’s room recently, and there was no place for me to put my feet. I couldn’t take one step into the room, because there were toys and clothes and papers and stuff everywhere. Now, I know this is not an isolated event. I know kids andContinue reading “Stuff units”

Can’t see the trees for the forest

Okay, I know the expression is “can’t see the forest for the trees,” but when I think of my writing, sometimes it’s more like my title. I start thinking about stupid stuff like how I want to be remembered, or how many books will I write in total, or will I actually make a goodContinue reading “Can’t see the trees for the forest”
