While walking the dog…


IMG_2816

Last year, while walking the dog, I stepped off a curb wrong and injured my left foot. At a later date, while walking the dog, she pulled the leash resulting in a hyper extended left thumb. Since that time the injured thumb has developed osteoarthritis, a painful condition that bothers me daily.

Yesterday, while walking the dog, I stepped wrong resulting in a strained left foot. This morning it was very painful to put pressure on the foot. Because of the foot I fell downstairs striking my tailbone on the edge of a step. So now I am trying to use a walking stick with a painful thumb, a sore bum, and a gimp foot.

Not to worry, the dog is fine! Although she wants a walk now…

Good Bones


 

Working on an old house for a few years has taught me some things;

  1. No matter how much effort, that house will never be perfect. Like us we will never reach perfection in this life.
  2. Most every area that is updated reveals old problems that need to be repaired. As God works in our life, old hidden sins are revealed that need to be addressed.
  3. Some of the hard work and repairs of that old house will eventually benefit someone else. It is a blessing to others when they see how God has changed our lives through the atoning work of Christ.

Frustration in aisle 3


I had a serious moment of frustration at Wal-Mart yesterday.
First let me say that any private business has the right to set guidelines. Remember “No shirt, no shoes, no service” signs?
Getting into the parking lot was nearly disastrous as ALL vehicles were using a single exit path. Once I got into the lot it seemed unusual that the area I normally park in was nearly empty of cars. (I am an adult so yes I have my favorite parking places at stores.) That is when I discovered that only one entrance is being used. An entire mob of bodies using one entrance simultaneously.
As I had just gotten off work as a welder nobody in their right mind would have wanted to be that close to me. And then there is the whole social distancing thing…
Inside the store is traffic control arrows on the floor. People don’t even obey driving laws so you know how effective this is. Not only was it impossible to keep 6 feet from other people some of the customers were visibly irritated by those going “the wrong way” through the aisles.
As a society have we really reduced ourselves to this state of fear and frustration?

What happens after death?


Most people, at some point in their life, wonder what happens when a person dies. Is there an after life? Does a person just cease to exist when they die? Does a person know they have died? This video briefly explains what happens based on the teachings of the Bible.

If you would like to know more on this subject please leave a comment. Thank you.
