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 2018-203: Baby Talk: Context of Cute

Cuteness is all timing.  I think my granddaughter brings new depths of meaning to the common understanding of cute.  I also accept that I might be a bit biased.  You can see that I would not make a good reporter for the New York Times or CNN. 

I also know it is a matter of context.  If I laid on a bed and kicked my legs and ate my shirt, no one would think I was being cute.  They would dial 911.  When she drools while smiling it melts my heart but her uncle rushes off to wash his hands.  I thought changing diapers was fun when I was a parent.  Now I will do a number 1 but for a 2 it is time for momma to have some quality time.

When you come across people who are new parents you need to be patient with them.  They are in a bubble and the new bundle is at the center.

  1. Enjoy it while it lasts. They grow up all too soon, as you know all too well.

    1. I seem to remember that from before.

      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.
