Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2013-152: Healthy Insights: Second’s Thoughts

One of the problems with keeping the weight off is that you can’t eat as much as you want.  There is no way around it.  We have a gut because we glut.  I have never seen a box of Cheeze Its that I have not wanted to finish.

One of the great things about keeping the weight off is that you can’t eat as much as you want.  How is that a blessing?  What you can eat tastes so much better.  When you only get a section of baguette for breakfast, it is possible to slow down and savor the flavor.  I write this as I look at the small piece of bread before me.  I am trying to convince myself it is true.

If you stop while you are ahead you don’t have a chance for your taste buds to get satiated and begin to deaden.  It leaves you wanting more but if you think about it, the rest of the loaf won’t taste as good as the first part.  Same bread, different you. 

George M. Cohen had a song he wrote that had the words
“Always leave them laughing when you say goodby,
Never linger long about
Or else you’ll wear your welcome out.”
Your taste buds are crying out for more.  You body is crying out for less.  Listen to your body and your taste buds will rejoice next time you listen to them.

      Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
