For Encouragement

Haven’t put any music on the blog for awhile but I was rabbit trailing this morning and listening to videos of currently popular worship music. Here’s one with words to encourage.  Old themes revisited.

If it’s good for me. . .

And the Happy Moron says,

“The Bible presents an interesting history of our values system, which is, that very early on, man decided to try and answer the question “What is good?” himself, and that decision is directly responsible for every piece of human suffering present in the world today. We have tried to carve out a personal good and it is catastrophic.”

Infanticide Rare?

I suppose I should be appreciative of the fact that it is still news and people are still appalled when women birth babies and subsequently kill them.

However, a quote from a CBC news article caught my eye this evening,

“Two Calgary women have been charged with infanticide in less than a week, but that doesn’t mean it is widespread, experts in Calgary say.”

Oh really?  In 2008 over 12,000 abortions were performed in Alberta.  That’s approximately one abortion for every four live births.

We kill one in five of our children before they even have chance to draw breath, and yet calmly say that infanticide is rare?

Time is awasting

I can remember when my father stopped playing Monopoly, and when he declared that the real problem of playing cards was that it wasted time.  Recently I’ve found myself saying, “If we’re going to finish translating the Old Testament into Nkonya before I’m walking with a cane. . . .”

Yes, Lynn says it well – From “For Better or for Worse”

That Grazing Feline

You wouldn't expect me to come here alone?

We live in a city where cats are not allowed to roam free. Understood. But the feline in this establishment likes a graze of green grass come morning.  And he doesn’t think it’s enough if I stand with a cup of coffee in hand and view him through the screen door.  He wishes to be escorted.

Did you know that even at high summer concrete is cold come morning especially if the sun is not well and truly up?  I think he feels that if the sun was well and truly up a month ago at this time it should maintain the habit now.

Cold Toes

Yes, yes, I know, “Cats have staff.”

All the days ordained

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
-from Psalm 139

Death is not an accident, it is an appointment.

And what did the Magpie and I see on our walk to the  Bower Woods and back today?

And a single Goldrenrod plant

More and more and more Smooth Purple Asters

And just a few

A Mint plant of some variety

Cow Parsnip Seed

Caragana Pods going brown

And also,

the first hint of Fall in the leaves across the park
