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 2019-057: Ode to Old: Scarlet Pimpernel

As I was enjoying the wild flowers this week I was trying to name the colors.  There was one that I was trying to put a name on and the term Scarlet Pimpernel came to mind?  Scarlet Pimpernel?  Where did that come from?  As I thought about it I could remember that several times in my life I could have expounded on the term.  I would then forget it and next time I needed it, look it up again.  Where did the memory go?

I find there is a growing list of terms and body of knowledge that I don’t seem to think is worth remembering.  What are the words to “I’m a little teapot”?  Since I have a granddaughter it might be something I put back in my memory box.  I still know my social security number but there are very few telephone numbers I bother retaining.  Certain streets in cities I lived in never made it into my daily recall.

“Thanks for the Memories” should become the theme song for all us elderly.  So far I am good with it.  The difficult time will be when  I can’t remember that I ever knew it.  Of course if I don’t remember that I forgot then I won’t know the difference.

I hope I haven’t said all this before.

  1. I'm 82 but I still remember this one:"I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle, here is my spout. When I get all steamed up hear me shout- tip me over and pour me out". Have fun. These days you will remember. Julia

    1. I am ten years behind you and it sounds like you are doing better than I am.

      Grace and peace
