Our days are numbered

” So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts to wisdom .” (Psalm 90:12) Lent begins on a Wednesday, with the reminder that we are dust and to that dust we shall return. It’s not a threat, it’s just the truth. We do not have all the time in the world. One of the psalms appointed for this Saturday of the 3rd Sunday in Lent is Psalm 90. It essentially offers us the same reminder as our Lenten journey turns the corner toward Holy Week…

Luke’s Biblical account (1:26-38) of the Annunciation describes the news given to Mary that she was to become…

McLennan County Precinct 3 Commissioner Will Jones did one stupid thing and wound up in county lockup. Jones’ problems involve the charge he sought to buy off his primary election opponent — a fellow Republican by the name of Ben Matus — so he could avoid an election battle…

Empty Nest

Yesterday, I knocked on Linda’s door and a bird flew out of the magnolia wreath. There was a mossy little nest that was neatly secured behind the flowers and ribbons. “Are you going to move this before the bird flys into the house?” I asked. “It has twice already”, she said. This required trapping it in the bedroom, opening a window and removing a screen, so it would return to the greater outdoors. Today the wreath was moved to a chair and the nest is empty. “How very appropriate”, I…

https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/10091/muslims-liberals-leftists Comment It is the fear of this violence, torture and death, wielded by extremist Muslims, that keeps every person desperate to obey. If liberals are in favor of freedom of speech, why do they turn a blind eye to Islamist governments such as Iran, which execute people for expressing their opinion? And why do they not let people in the West express their opinion without attacking them or even giving them the respect of hearing what they have to say? They seem, in fact, like the autocratic people from…
