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 2020-036: The Joys of Not Blogging

I am having one glorious time.  Our second grandchild just arrived and we are the blessed hosts to my daughter, her toddler and the newborn.  She came back to the states for the birth and so far is glad she did.  This time she produced a boy and he is again reminding us of how dumb we all are at birth.  Her husband joined us for the birth and a few weeks of leave but had to leave last week. 

It is glorious.  There is no such thing as free time.  I had a great time this morning rocking my grandson to sleep and holding him for an extended period of time.  Every once in awhile I remember that I have not posted anything on this blog in a long time.  I look down at the sleeping baby and say, “So what.”  No offense but there are more important things than sharing my thoughts with the waiting world.

Since my daughter can’t lift the toddler for another week I have become the go-to guy for diaper changes.  It is a lot of fun.  The technology of modern diapers takes the guess work out of wet diapers.  They develop a blue line that tells the story.  For the number twos the smell is enough to tell you it is time to do something.  If you have never had your own children or grandchildren you have no idea how much fun it can be.

Meanwhile I am getting nothing done but child care.  I only have a few more weeks to enjoy it and then they all fly overseas again. 

I am sure my writing will get more frequent.  What is that I hear?  Could it be a toddler heading my way?

  1. There's nothing more important (or fun!) than caring for small humans. Oh...and exhausting, but in a fun way.

    1. I am finally at a point in life where I can understand that.

      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.
