Truncated “If you had known who I am, then you would have known who my Father is. From now on you know him—and have seen him!” ~ John 14: 7~ Many years ago, I took a correspondence course, offered through my denomination; the classes were held, at the church I was a member of.  This…

Evil is not the Answer I would like to write about the bittersweet moment this morning, of going to my container garden, and harvesting Cuban oregano, and tomatoes, to complete the Johnny Marzetti, I am making for dinner.

It will be our first snow of the season; we have had a few flurries, but not enough to be inconvenienced by, or to color our world bright and pristine. Today we ran around and…

Thankful     In Maine, I am a Facebook “fan” and I follow the police department, from the town I live in. We have had some interaction with the police here, who have always been kind, courteous and helpful; most specifically when Kate fell from that evil tree, which is now a table and stools,…
