“Come to me, all you who are toiling and loaded, and I will refresh you.” (Matthew 11:28) Jesus was a protester (Luke 4:16-31, Matthew 4:23-25, Luke 5:15, Mark 2:1-12, Luke 11, John 5:16, Mark 3:1-6, Matthew 5-7, Matthew 11:20-30, Luke 7, Luke 11, Matthew 9:35, Matthew 13:56-58, Matthew 10, John 4; Matthew 9:2-8). The Jesus… Continue reading Leaders of Conscience, Why Have You Forsaken Us?
Photosource: https://thevillagereporter.com/minneapolis-police-station-torched-amid-george-floyd-protest/ Reading through all of the protest and riot news today, two things are stuck in my mind. One is how it appears those who want to start race wars and create anarchy are highjacking peaceful protests. The other is what one person said, “The fires are necessary.” This has left me confused and… Continue reading “The Fires are Necessary”
This evening I activated my son’s new iPhone. I didn’t need a Verizon person when I bought it. Didn’t really need a live person to even order it (although I did need an agent to walk me through some things via online chat). I didn’t need a live person to set the phone up or… Continue reading Will the Jobs Come Back?
As I wrote yesterday, last evening was an emotional one with tears shed as information was shared and erroneous statements uncovered. As parents, we want to protect our children as best we can, wanting to keep certain facts and information to ourselves so the hurts and pains of the past remain where we’d like them,… Continue reading Shocked, but Not Really Surprised
In order for something to become the so-called norm, the thing is introduced to us incrementally. Take the man in the Oval Office right now. He came down those escalators with a bang and told us right away who he was as a person, who he would be as a candidate, and who he would… Continue reading It’s Always Incremental

President Barack Obama was elected and started the process of rebuilding the economy and the country. He succeeded and started one of the… Continue reading Republicans Break It, Democrats Fix It
Few know of my religious background or my beliefs. Mainly this is because I’m a fairly private person and I’m respectful of the religious beliefs of others. I would characterize myself as more of a spiritual person over a religious person. The person I speak to the most on religious questions is my mom. Her… Continue reading This Bible Verse is on My Mind
Since we had to cancel our June New York trip, I decided I would take a vacation day for today. I needed something different as the staying at home, although I know it’s needed and why, is getting old. My day was a nice respite. I was able to sleep in a little bit because… Continue reading Took a Break Today
This evening, after getting caught up with The Masked Singer (yes, I know, but what you going to do?), I watched Saturday Night Live Home Edition. It was better than I thought it would be! The cast was creative in garnering props from around their homes (RGB skit was the brilliant in this aspect; the… Continue reading Saturday Night “Live” in the Age of COVID-19
