    Beats all that whining.
    To many who are ready to take offense, Stripe. Too many touchy snowflakes.

    I've found that among my own friends. Touchy touchy....no teasing or joking allowed.

    Some people don't like advice, either. I have lots of good advice, but I've been told to just listen to what they say and not give them my advice. That brought on a momentary silence, believe me.

    Not long, but momentary.

    I'll try to stop by now and again to put up something that might inspire. I'm moderating elsewhere, so it will be as time allows, which is stretched a bit thin these days, between that and teaching.

    In the meantime, today's thought, again:

    Fill your mind with cynicism and you leave no room for faith.


    Fill your heart with anger and you leave no room for hope.

    Fill your soul with with judgement and you leave no room for love.

    Fill your day with each of these and you leave no room for God.

    You aren't what you eat, but you're always what you swallow.

    Pro-Life

    A mind with hands and a purpose, would be a terrible thing to waste.
    Making beautiful and useful things is a pleasure you cannot experience any other way.

    The great blue heron that comes to the pond across the street every morning for the past few weeks, seems no longer bothered when I walk by. Years ago, a pair of owls living there accepted my presence without fear.

    I miss them.

    I love daffodils, they're just so relentlessly cheerful.

    Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it

    I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

    "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm".

    I refuse, point blank, to speak peace to the unregenerate, hypocrites, religious dogma lovers and those that oppose the following statement:
    A regenerate man trusts in the evangelism of salvation conditioned on the atoning blood and imputed justness of Messiah alone.
    If you are fully persuaded, by experience, of this delightful, beautiful and life giving doctrine then I love you as a brother.

    Anyone who thinks that salvation is conditioned on anything a man thinks, does or says is atheist. I cannot and will not speak peace to him or her.

    I don't make statements online that I wouldn't repeat in front of my Maker, my grandmother or a judge.

    When onward on my way I plod,
    I saw a host of axolotls;
    Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
    A sight to make a man’s blood freeze.

    Some had handles, some were plain;
    They came in blue, red pink, and green.
    A few were orange in the main;
    The darndest sight I’ve ever seen.
    The females gave a sprightly glance;
    The male ones all wore knee-length pants.

    Now oft, when on the couch I lie,
    The doctor asks me what I see.
    They flash upon my inward eye
    And make me laugh in fiendish glee.
    I find my solace then in bottles,
    And I forget them axolotls.
