The Quest for Blogging Material

When I blog, it is usually because I have something to say that just won't keep.

Doing a challenge like the A to Z is quite different.  I sift through words in my mind that begin with the letter of the day.  Scientific, eh?

So, the quest continues for material that both entertains and edifies.  How do you come up with material? Any help is appreciated!

Playing Catch Up

No, I did not say "ketchup."  Catch up!  I am trying, A to Z Challenge, I am trying!

Oh, My Kingdom for a Cheeseburger!

Or a piece of toast.  Or, or, just about anything that needs to be chewed!  No solid food has passed my lips for more than twenty-four hours.

TMI here...prepping for a colonoscopy is not for wimps.  Why is it that, as we get older, we need the most invasive tests?!

The procedure is a piece of cake...oh, cake...I digress.  One is asleep for the whole thing.  Prepping, oy, what a pain in the posterior and stomach.

Oh, well, it is worth it to have peace of mind.  heavy sigh.....

New Ways of Looking at Things

Looking back at what I thought was good entertainment when I was my younger self, I can be appalled, shocked, surprised, get the picture.

What has changed?  I have.  My world view, my heart ties, how I see myself and others have all changed.  In my opinion, the changes are for the better.  I like myself more.

So, "R" rated movies are rare and, if I find offense I find it easy to walk out or turn off.  Time is too precious to waste on bad entertainment choices.  There are too many things in life where we do not get a choice.

Made Whole

Unlike Jerry McGuire, it was not another person who completed me.

I believe there is a God-shaped hole in each and every person.  We try to fill it with food, drugs, passions, other people and we are still hungry for what will fill us.

On this Good Friday, why not give Christ a chance?  You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.  Want more information?  I'll be happy to share!  Also, you can start here:

Law and Justice

As I type this, I am sitting in the county court house waiting to be called as a witness in a child visitation case.  The father wants unsupervised visitation with his child.  The problem?  The mother has a restraining order against him for harassment, stalking and physical abuse. Getting a restraining order in this county is a difficult thing.

Does this man deserve visitation?  My opinion is not yet as the child is in need of counseling due to the trauma of the parents'relationship.  Eventually, maybe.

Will justice be served?  If not today, eventually.  God is the final arbitor of justice.  I pray that this father finds healing through the eternal judge.  God's will be done.

King of Kings

Think about it.....King of kings.  There is no one higher than Jesus.  He answers to no one.  Wow!  What an awesome, perfect, loving God I serve!  He is so good.
