See and bow

In the past, I went through WordPress themes like a kid goes through candy.

Fine feeling to hold

After the lockdown in March, 2020, our magazine went digital. I’m printing last year’s issues in one volume.

Your gratitude journal

Some people keep prayer lists. Even pagans talk about journals to list things one feels thankful for.

  1. Take the two possibly negative pieces of news received on the same day and make something good of them.

  2. Sometimes you feel a need to physically write. Until you see how badly your handwriting has become.

  3. As I kid, I doodled a lot. A creative activity, perhaps, expressive or developmental. Do older people do that? Or need to?

  4. Who would have thought that the great Yahoo would fall? Groups are no more. Other greats will follow.

  5. Where did many of the old net friends go? They grew in your horizon, stayed, then faded from sight.

  6. An original verse: At the end, a start, until there’s none; / At last, no more, the setting sun.

  7. A Bible verse: “Keep thinking about things above, not things on the earth,” Colossians 3.2 NET.

  1. It’s no coincidence that the beautiful book of Psalms begins with intense conflict. See especially Psalms 2-6. But the faithful still sleeps in peace, Psalm 4.8.

  2. The human mind greatly overestimates man’s ability to deal with temptation and sin. We think we can handle it. Hrmph.

  3. Passivity is the quality of the era, in spite of (or, as evidenced by) marches, burnings, violence, protests in the streets.

  4. Repentance is our making the way straight for the Lord’s coming, Matthew 3.3. God also makes our way straight, Psalm 4.8; Proverbs 3.6. Two-way street.

  5. Almost a roomful of furniture was bought earlier this week. Asking the Lord for an early delivery.

  6. An original verse: Love, holiness, joy, and peace, to start, / Show we are God’s, a people of the heart.

  7. A Bible verse: “Like a bad tooth or a foot out of joint, so is confidence in an unfaithful person at the time of trouble.” Proverbs 25.19 NET.
