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 2015-130: Would You Marry Your Waitress (or Waiter)?

I am not in the market for a wife.  I already have one, thank you, and one is enough for a lifetime of challenge and growth.

But I got to thinking about how pleasant the ladies are that work in a good restaurant.  They are often attractive.  They are friendly and smile a lot.  They laugh at my jokes without rolling their eyes, at least when I am looking.  They give a window of worthiness to the day.

Would I look for a wife in a restaurant?

It wouldn’t hurt to look but it would only be a first step.  I would want to know if they are paying attention to the world and if they are capable of thinking for themselves.  I would want to know if they are reading and what they are reading.  I would want to know how much time they spend watching TV.  I would want to know why they are working as a waitress and what long range goals are ahead.

It could be that the person bringing your coffee is a rare jewel in a simple setting.  Of course it could also be that she is a simple stone that has been polished a lot.

I am glad I am not in the market.  Just the thought is depressing.

  1. Does your wife read your blog? lol

  2. If you see me still posting after a few days we can safely say, "No." All I an say now it, "Not that I know of."

    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.
