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 2018-245: Baby Talk: The Joy of Anticipation

Recently we were able to Skype with my daughter and granddaughter.  The baby is at that stage where she is able to move all four extremities and each one has the strength to accomplish a task but the coordination isn’t there.  She will rear up like a seal and examine her world.  The next minute her face is in the rug but her rear is in the air.  You can watch her try to figure it out but there is still something missing.  A fun time was had by all, except maybe the baby.

One of the great side benefits of having grandchildren is that your mind drifts into the past.  I was sitting and thinking about chasing my granddaughter when she starts to crawl.  That brought back fond memories of chasing my son down the hall while he howled with laughter.  I don’t need any trigger warnings.  The memories are warm and gratifying. 

I had forgotten how long it takes infants to master basic skills.  In a sense it will never change.  There are still some things that I have trouble with like getting all the pieces of lettuce off the counter when I make a salad or using the right amount of shampoo.  Life will continue to have it’s challenges.  I can see the day coming when I will have a hard time getting my shoes done right.  I already have days I get my underwear on backwards. 

Fortunately I have mastered crawling.  I will need it next time I see my granddaughter.

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.
