Unhappy errors may precede happy results. James (Jan. ‘19) adds, “Learning the way is rewarded by knowing the way.”

ISRAEL: OUR VISIT TO BETHLEHEM

(Conclusion) Previously: Linda, her husband and tour group visit Israel and find Bethlehem a city of complexity and concern. Fortunately, the wrecked cars along the road didn’t mean anything to our tour that day. The new Palestinian guide took us to the Church of the Nativity. The church was quite elaborate -it’s impossible to describe […]

EXPLORING

(Conclusion) Back toward the end of May 2018 I took a walk. The day was chilly and rainy with thick fog moving like a cloud bank off a stormy lake or ocean. I felt like exploring so I took one of the outdoor kitties and we walked over to a neighbor’s back pasture. I hoped […]

MY SPINNING BRAIN

I walk home feeling like my brain is jammed in neutral. The same thoughts keep running though my head –thoughts about family and friends.

Happiness…

NO MORE “BILL”S

Nothing much is happening on the dating front. I corresponded with an interesting-sounding man a few times. He wanted to meet me half way between where we live. It was a bit of a drive. I thought about my general state of mind and physical health and didn’t feel any enthusiasm. I didn’t reply. He […]

ISRAEL: OUR VISIT TO BETHLEHEM

(Part 1 of 2) Earlier in 2018, Bill and I went to Israel with his father. The time there was like a merry-go-round ride except the scenery changed constantly. I had a long list of things I wanted to see and do. We did our best in the time we had. Israel is a complicated […]

SIGNED

As I was walking into work on a recent dark morning, I looked up at the sky and saw the half moon with two bright stars (I think they were planets.) lined up in a perfect line with the moon. I got to thinking about the Creator that designed everything and threw the constellations and […]
