Update 8.12.15

I finally got around to doing a small post at my other blog (scriptureliving.blogspot.com) as a first attempt at getting back to that which I have loved so much and which has benefited me enormously in the past.

As summer wears on, much has transpired. My boss is very ill and not getting better. The prognosis isn't good, but I find that it is not right to rule anything out. After all, I serve a God of miracles who can do whatever He sees fit. This situation has lent itself to a frustrating time at work with calls on the weekend to handle things that I sometimes have little to no knowledge about. I don't like being a department of 1. It has, however, been a learning experience! Really, it's not all about me and I don't want to make it that. My fear is that something bad is going to have to happen before they wake up and take steps to create an actual support department (like we used to have). Don't get me wrong: I love the place and many of the people I work with. If I didn't, I would not be in my 21st year of employment there. In fact, I can't think of a place I would rather work at this point in my life-- unless I decide to go into business for myself some day.

My wife continues to wait for something to happen with the insurance company so she can get the much-needed medical treatment necessary to recover from her work-related injuries. Considering the way she has been treated by the worker's comp insurance company handling her claim (in my opinion their actions have been despicable), it's hard not be angry and resentful over all of it. Fortunately, we believe it will be resolved soon (but she will take the cautious and patient approach). She just wants to get on with her life in whatever career field she finds herself in. She really loves what she was doing and would love to go back to it, but things don't seem to be very hopeful with that.

Anyway, life continues to be good. the grandchildren are growing up before our very eyes at what feels like "warp speed." Does that mean we are aging at warp speed? I hope not!

Slavery

Jesus responded, “I assure you: Everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin. -John 8:34 (HCSB)

All too often, Christians may feel constrained by their faith and what they know to be the expectations of their Heavenly Father. Sometimes, in certain churches, the list of "don'ts" may seem longer than the ancient laws of Israel. Occasionally 'religious' people will sadly get caught up in that sort of thing. That can be a turn-off for many people and a valuable asset to the enemy, who wants you to feel bound by law and a slave to some sort of religious creed. The God I know and love is a God of freedom. I am freer as a slave to Christ than I ever was as a slave to sin. How about you? Are you free in Christ or bound by sin?

Just a bit of DISGUST...

I've got to admit I expected more from the do-nothing body we call Congress with its GOP majority at present. Instead, we got more of the same old tired rhetoric we have been getting for the past 7+ years now about how terrible Obamacare is.

The plan they managed to produce after all this time (Paul Ryan's) is not much better than what is in place and apparently leaves a lot of middle-class people financially screwed. I understand it polled with a 17% approval rate. All I know is the many votes over the past few years to repeal it were nothing more than political grandstanding --  a waste of time and taxpayer money. All the Republicans seem to be able to do is criticize and come up with little to offer themselves. They cannot even seem to reach a consensus among themselves (a problem they have had as long as I can remember).

Personally, I have felt for a long time that they should simply fix what is in place so it works better and offers more flexibility with lower costs. I th…

Get On With It!

When we learned last night of the appointment of special counsel to look into the accusations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, we were initially impressed with the measured response from the President. However, as I stated to my wife last night, I would have been surprised if that didn't all change by morning. And so it did. Why can't he leave leave matters alone and keep his fingers off of his smartphone or whatever gadget he uses to bombard Twitter with tweets that signify immaturity and are often caustic, to say the least?

I think if I were President Trump or on his staff I would welcome a special counsel investigation of the matter to put it to bed once and for all. Of course, I offer that with a presumption that he is innocent of accusations that have so far come without any evidence. Robert Mueller's credentials are basically impeccable and he is known as a man who will get to the bottom of things and follow the trail wherever it leads -- not…
