I picked my car up yesterday. It has been in the shop since the 1st of December while AIG (insurance company of the guy who caused the wreck) tried to make a decision. Wound up costing them over 11k on a car worth 12k. Makes no sense to me, but that's not unusual.....
Runs fine by the way..
almost 4 months - ridukkulus
inside joke there
Here it is, Wednesday, (the day, not the person) and I wonder what will happen next. The funerals are past and hopefully we'll have a couple of months before the next one. You get tired of them after a while, but we all will pass on eventually (unless of course the unmentionable One returns before then.) Many people are so clueless about what each day can mean, sometimes me included. We can stay in bed and do next to nothing (harming no one but ourselves) or we can get up and putter around the yard or sit at a table and drink coffee or perhaps write the great american novel or give a bottle of water to someone who needs one. Our options are as endless as our opportunities. We simply have to look for them.

Being a simple minded (as supposed by the "learned") and from the swamps where life may abound, but didn't start, many will disregard my opinion. So be it. They have the right. But as I have seen a bit of the world and been to places of power (natural and man-made) I have been left with the conclusion that this world is not an accident of nature but a creation of God. Did it take a week (well, six days?) I wasn't there to mark the calendar. Does it matter to me? No, I'll probably live out my 89 years without knowing for sure. I still won't be concered with how long it took to build. God did it and time is His servant, not He the slave of time. I am stuck here in linear time with few options about it, but I have no concern (even though my personal intent is to beat Bilbo's 134 years.) Ya'll have fun and come visit the swamps soon.... (hurricane season starts soon and I would recommend seeing the swamps before the next landfall in south central Louisiana)

Peace, Long Life, and Prosperity

Tings in the swamp have a natural up and down rhythm People come people go whether by moving or moving on as some say. Today is Jimmy's funeral, tomorrow is Rick's, Mrs Lucille isn't far from saying goodbye nor is Aunt Leona. But continuation is the key to nature. I believe in God and Jesus is His Son. I see His hand in the world and I see the freedom He gave us. Unfortunately Many take that freedom as license and fail to grasp that being free of God means being totally alone. God gives you the opportunity to do whatever you want, help a little old lady across the street, or murder 35 orphans in their sleep. You have that opportunity, but it is based in choice. Nothing we do is done without our choice, whether consciously or subconsciously. Every thing we do that is right as well as everything we do that is wrong. And every choice we make, good or evil, with forethought or without always, always has consequences. If you chose to kill, you face the consequence (now and/or later) If you choose to help the widows and orphans, again the consequences are now and/or later).
