Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

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 2021-225: Snuggles

I would never wish illness or grump on my grandchildren, but let’s consider the silver lining.

When my grandson gets up from his nap he is always grumpy.  He doesn’t want to sleep any longer but he doesn’t want to be awake either.  This creates some marvelous times.  He is ready to be held and comforted.  It is awesome.  At first he will struggle a little but if you hold him tight he will gradually relax and just lay there with his eyes open.  The other day he even went back to sleep.  

Every time something like this happens I wonder if it will be the last time.  It reminds me of the time before he could walk where I was watching him and it was time for his nap.  It was a similar pattern except he fought harder to stay awake.  Then you could almost feel him take a big sigh and relax.  I have a vision of that little head with a smooth cheek just begging to be stroked.

Great times.  In the midst of national chaos I am truly blessed.
