The picture of your faithful

Posted on Sun, 18 Jun 2017

The picture of your faithful dog, who understands to be with you, patient for when you feel like communicating, seems a good model for friendship that is there, but undemanding, especially through grief and hard readjustments. Rhiannon

Posted on Thu, 22 Jun 2017

I would say that Darwin's theory is not sound science, but hypothesis, a suggestion, which if he were alive now, he would probably hesitate more to suggest, as the methods and evidence he believed would become more clear, have retreated with more...

Posted on Wed, 21 Jun 2017

This has a pleasing form and flow to it, Elsie, and hints in an unusual way at the situation there, and the memories.

Is the car reference an indication of many abandoned cars around, with no money to be repaired, run or taken to a dump?...

Faith, in the BIble, is based

Posted on Wed, 17 May 2017

Faith, in the BIble, is based on evidence. The intricacy of creation points to a Creator/Designer (and I am science-trained). The words and life of Jesus Christ when examined tell us of the reality of a true God, who exists, cares, can be known...

How tragic. I wouldn't think

Posted on Thu, 30 Mar 2017

How tragic. I wouldn't think that such scenarios were limited to any one political view, or any one kind of celebrity status (or none). But it demonstrates a mistaken attitude that biting and malice can give satisfaction, or 'retail high'. I...

Posted on Fri, 24 Mar 2017

Terry, you quote "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." (Matthew 19:24) in the teaser. Interesting to note that when the disciples said then "'Who then can be saved?",...

Posted on Fri, 24 Mar 2017

There is a difference between Heseltine losing advisory posts to the government if he is in disagreement with them, and actually punishing, trying to silence or prevent free speech, isn't there? But there is a lot of attempting to label polite,...

Posted on Wed, 22 Mar 2017

Is this autobiographical, Linda? If so, sorry to hear of  your bereavement now.

Thank you for that
