Pro life

January 28, 2017

I am going to try to write something that makes sense, but I’m to the place in my weekend afternoon where I just want to get my stuff done and then not think anymore for a while.

I believe in life. I believe that life begins at conception. God blesses most of us with children and families.. I know people get pregnant in difficult circumstances. I also know that there are families that would love to take these children and welcome them into their families.

Black Lives Matter.. All lives matter. Every time I hear of another fight between police and blacks, I pray that this is the end, that somehow we can come to some kind of understanding between the parties. I don’t know how it is going to end, but pray that it does. This has been heartbreaking to so many.

And I also believe that God is the Author of life, and He is the one who decides when life should end.. It isn’t noble for someone sick or disabled to end their own life.. Taking you’re life hurts so many.

 

Saturday thoughts

January 14, 2017

It’s been a good, and yet full and kind of crazy, week… When it comes to my social life, most the people I do anything with on a regular basis are people from my church. Sometimes I wonder how much of that is because I work for myself from home, and how much is because I’m disabled..

Anyway, our church had some special meetings this week. We had meetings from Sunday to Wednesday each evening. The meetings were wonderful. We were inviting the Lord to come into our midst and make us more alive in Him. We were also asking Him to give us more love for Him, for one another, and for the world.

I enjoyed the meetings a good bit.. I also have two new aides coming in the evenings. One does Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and the other does Tuesday and Thursday. There is always a learning curve when new aides come.

Unfortunately, I’ve also been having some wrongly with my computer battery not charging right.. But let me say right here that we’ve found ways to get it to charge. I’ve never been wihout ta device. And for that, I’m truly grateful. That about sums up my week. How about yours?

Holidays, etc

January 7, 2017

I had a great time over the holidays. This is the first quiet weekend after three busy weekends with family and friends.. And I’m looking forward to having a pretty full Sunday tomorrow..

We had all eight of my siblings and their families at my sister’s house the week before Christmas. My Mom, sister, and I drove up the day before to kind of help get the house ready.. Everyone arrived on a Sunday, and that night everyone kind of just hung out and caught up.. People would kind of go here and there during the day and then come together for a big dinner and more talking time in the evening..

The week after Christmas I did some work, but one of my brothers and his family were around. And toward the end of the week, a friend we haven’t seen in years came for a visit. I kind of worked when things got quieter.. I always enjoy having family and friends around.

Once our friend left Tuesday, I settleed into more serious work.. I’m attempting to get some article sabout travel published. That’s kind of my big project these days..
