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 2022-052: Wildflower Watch: Ice Trees

We just went from a day of 70 degrees to ice storms.  Texas keeps you on your toes.

Last week we had the grandchildren over and I took them for a walk.  I asked my granddaughter if she saw any flowers and the answer, of course, was, “No.”  We kept looking but only found a couple of dried out seed pods.

The morning after the ice storm hit brought another kind of “wildflower”.  Outside my window is a mesquite tree and as the sun came up I noticed that it was incased in ice.  It was beautiful.  Looking out other windows I could see other trees around that looked the same.  

Nature is capable of presenting beauty even in the most deadly situations.  I was not going to go out and contemplate the icy branches.  Looking from afar was enough but I am constantly awakened to the creative variety that God has given us in our world.
