10 Days Later...

My wife made an appointment with our doctor for me this afternoon. It has been about 10 days and I am not over this cold. Last weekend was the worst with a fever, congestion and a sore throat. It kept me in bed all day Saturday and away from one of the grandkid's birthday parties. However, as the week has progressed, I have gone up and down... but never really better. So, I'm off to the doctor for a checkup and possibly some antibiotics. I have managed to work about 50 hours this week, but I feel so run down, it's pathetic.

I have been under a lot of stress lately. I know that stress can be an inhibitive factor when battling any type of sickness. Our physical health is certainly dependent on our emotional and spiritual health, for sure. More updates as things happen...

There are some really bad problems at work right now that would normally get me to change my appointment for this afternoon, but if I don't take care of myself it won't matter much. We have a major network outage that affects everything computer-related at the museum.

Perhaps I will be coming back after my doctor visit. Oh my...

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?

Treason or Patriotism?

Many years ago, the Democrats couldn't wait to get all of the facts surrounding Watergate out in the public eye. The Washington Post has been celebrated as a bastion of the free press recently in a movie (which we have yet to see, but plan to).

Now, the idea of releasing a memo that may indicate wrong-doing on the part of the FBI and DOJ is hailed as treasonous by some who would prefer the secrets remain secrets. I have seen or heard of nothing in the recently released memo that would appear to compromise national security -- have you?

Hate Speech

The amount of vitriol directed at President Trump seems to be unprecedented. At least, that is what those on the right seem to think. Of course, I remember plenty of criticism and hate speech hurled at President Obama during his time in office, as well. I don't think I really need to mention President George W. Bush, do I?

There has never been (in my lifetime) such a level of animosity between opposing viewpoints as I see in today's America. Democrats hurl murderous accusations against the Republicans for their healthcare proposals and those of a conservative view sling accusations of incompetence and hypocrisy back at them. Of course, either side is generally pretty good at documenting their accusations with freshly spun 'facts.'

No matter where you fit into the political spectrum, it is important to note that such contention is counter-productive. Whenever people react at the behest of their emotions, clear-headed and rational decisions are nowhere to be found. Moreo…
