On the personal front, it has been a rather long week. My ‘day job’ has been rather involved this past week, so as result, I was unable to get everything accomplished that I wanted to. That’s alright – I’ll try to get to them this week, or at least sometime before Christmas.
This week, I still have a few reviews in the hopper – books already read – and more closing in. Plus, I have a few posts to actually finish writing. Oh, and a very special review coming soon.
The sun is finally shining today – no overcast, the temperatures are nice. Someone must have killed the groundhog. Bless you, bless you, whom ever you are.
The kids are outside playing right now, as a matter of fact, and I have slept half the day away. Yes, I still need my naps.
But before we did, my family and I read from our NLT Mosaic this morning. Part of the devotional series is a story. This particular one hearkened back to our childhood in Southern Louisiana when the greatest sacrifice a Catholic made during Lent was….chocolate. Of course, we didn’t know at that time that Rome was not the only alternative to Baptist-ism, and that Lent was celebrated by others besides Rome. Silly pagan ‘stupid-stition.’
Of course, now, moving out of South Louisiana and actually picking up a book or two, we know more about Lent.
Fear of the unknown and triviality on the part of others often creates silly exercises in bigotry.
I’ve heard this song several times on my XM, but have not yet found the MP3 to download yet – hasn’t made it to Amazon – but I thought you might like it.
