Once again Peggy Noonan hits the mark. There is a reason the lady won a Pulitzer Prize for her reporting. She is bright, direct, empathetic, and looks below the surface to the soul of the nation. Her latest tells an unvarnished and unfortunate truth; America, it seems, lacks tact. That, and so much more these days. Like her, I am old enough to remember when both our friends and enemies were sure we were destroying ourselves. Those days are back, big time. I still have hope, there is always hope, but a bit of common decency and humaneness would go a long way. We are better than this.
I am happy to announce the launch of a second blog on this site. This blog is a sort of faith journal, in which I will record comments on scripture I read, ways that God moves in my life, and perspective on faith in a changing world. Nothing too heavy here, just capturing thoughts as they come. Those interested can access the new blog via the FAITH link in the navigation section above.
Summer nights are here and the Milky Way is on full display. Looking forward to getting to a dark sky site for a good view with the camera. Oh, that would be my back deck!
I find myself meditating on a bit of scripture that resonates deep inside: “Not upon the basis of bread only shall the indivdual live, but upon the basis of every word proceeding out of God’s mouth.” Matt 4:4 (Wuest) I am reminded that strength in the Word at times of weakness is the fruit of our intimate relationship with the Word when not being tempted. If it can sustain Jesus during His temptation, it can do the same for us.
