Recently I have been evaluating myself to the kind of sanctified vessel that I believe represents Jesus. When I write some of the sarcastic/critical posts, I wonder again, WWJD? A few weeks ago my son said he had been reading a book with theme “Don’t go quietly,” and he was considering the advice. Most of us Christians have been taught to turn the other check, in other words, be a floor mat. That is hard to get away from.
So I see an America that is far removed from the America in which I grew up! I remember the first murder I ever heard about. I now sit through a discussion of the murder of four college students as though it were a fictional novel. Tonight’s news involved three-year-old who had been murdered and four-year-old who was missing. I’m through “going quietly” and you can expect to see me rattle some cages for as long as I can put letters to my words and words to my thoughts and thoughts to my prayers! And, again, my eyes fill with tears. Oh, God, how can I deal with a society that will allow a girl to sit on top of a car and have a bowel movement! Go quietly? No!
How can I keep quiet when protesters can burn down buildings in support of gay parades, and other protesters can be arrested because they sit too near the door of an abortion clinic!
A bloganuary issue. What is my favorite form of travel? Not often thought of as a form of travel, but walking is my choice. A car is my favorite vehicle for travel, but I love to walk to my care independently, even though I’m hampered by needing a cane or walker to get to it.
Another Bloganuary issue: What fears have I conquered? Writing and Speaking.
The Biden scandal. Dem’s FBI, and associates: Perhaps we should not have raided Mar-o-Largo.
GOP: “Now we are awaiting a pay-back raid in Delaware.” That’ll be the day!
But, hush my mouth, Biden implies that I should feel safe because he was taking care of me like he takes care of his Corvette. Do you think he kept the car keys in a secure room? Secure? With Hunter living there?
Interesting that one of the secure documents was about Ukraine. Wonder if that was useful at the time Biden ordered Zelensky to fire a prosecutor within six hours or Ukraine will not get the US billion “and dang if the man didn’t fire the prosecutor” Those are not Biden’s exact words.

I have a new cooking range available for someday. I wonder if “someday” will still allow for gas ranges.
Explanation to bloggers: Sometimes I read notifications from my cell phone. If I do, I can mark “like” but I cannot/do not make comments. Also, I find that if I don’t double-check, my “like” does not go through. I seldom end my day without having responded to all likes and comments. With the following exceptions: One, if the reason for the contact was obviously a sales pitch. Two, if your blog is complicated. I cannot afford the time to look through so many pictures, titles, menus, etc to find your latest entry. Some of you just have too much love for fancy technology! Three, I generally only read one blog per day from anyone. Four, if your blog is more than six or seven hundred words.
I do read long blogs by some very special writers who just post once a week.
And there is one blogger who piques my interest to the point of my having to see what she has to say every time she posts. They are short and concise, entertaining, and … cymbals, please … they rhyme! What more could I love? Edgar Guest? Yes.
