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 2018-111: Ode to Old: Stockinged Up

I realized the other day that I will probably never buy another pair of sox.  The main reason is I have been the beneficiary of my son’s evolving taste in haberdashery.  He keeps changing the kind of sox he wears.  As a result I end up with bags of perfectly good stuff.  Currently I have a profusion in white and black.  I have a small selection in natural colors.  Most are cotton, some are wool and a few are artificial materials.  For white cotton I literally have a box in the garage, a large sack on the floor of my closet and a large basket on the shelf. 

Also at my age I don’t think I will need to do any stocking up unless the fashion goes back to high water pants and pastel sox for men.  Even then I don’t think I would buy any.

Getting old has some advantages.

  1. You can always dye the white ones if you have too many! - lol

  2. One of his projects involved saving my old coffee grounds to use them to do just that. I don't think it worked out too well.

    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.
