Will Violence Ever End?

Posted by mcm0704 on May 21, 2018 |

In church yesterday morning, the priest referenced a quote attributed to Chief Seattle of the Lushootseed tribe in the Pacific Northwest. “Our God is the same God. You may think now that you own Him as you wish to own our land, but you cannot. He is the God of man, and His compassion is […]

Us vs. Them

Posted by mcm0704 on March 19, 2018 |

Over the weekend I listened to several episodes of Ted talks Daily, and I noticed a striking similarity in each of them and what they were suggesting would be the best ways to solve serious problems in our world. And, yes, it does involve talking, but not in the talking on the front porch between […]

More Than Just a House

Posted by mcm0704 on March 12, 2018 |

Today I say goodbye to the home I had in Winnsboro, TX where I happily played “farmer” for almost 17 years and shared many good years with my husband, Carl, until he died in 2013. We both enjoyed small-town living, the rural setting, and the many friends we had there. I remember when we were […]

Nicknames – Why do we Use Them?

Posted by mcm0704 on March 5, 2018 |

While feeding my cats yesterday, I realized that I was calling them by nicknames instead of their given name, and I had this moment of wondering why. What is it about nicknames? Or is there anything “about” them at all? I did a quick search on the internet and found the following on the Oxford […]

No More School Shootings

Posted by mcm0704 on February 19, 2018 |

My heart is weighed down with sadness over the horrible loss of lives in Parkland, Florida on Wednesday.  So many – too many – young people had their futures taken away in the flash of gunfire by a disturbed gunman who obtained an assault weapon much too easily. I heard on The Daily Podcast Friday […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on February 12, 2018 |

Starting my third week with no Internet service, thanks to Cable One who lost my initial order that was placed January 29th. The service was supposed to be installed within a few days, but that didn’t happen, so I called back the following Monday. This time I was told that they could not find a […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on February 5, 2018 |

Did you watch the Superbowl last night? I did not, as I don’t have television reception here in my new house. I don’t even have Internet service yet, so all my online business is happening with the help of the hotspot on my iPhone. My computer has built in wi-fi, so once my office was […]

Monday Morning Mess…uh, Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on January 22, 2018 |

Mmmmm…Mmmmm…Mmmmm I do encourage a few deep Yoga breaths to calm anxieties and relieve stress before moving on to my comments about the dysfunctional government that blithely goes on their way in Washington while average Americans pay the price. At midnight Friday, the government shut down because an agreement could not be made on the proposed 2018 […]

Honoring A Great Man

Posted by mcm0704 on January 15, 2018 |

Today we honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Some people don’t think any more of the day other than the fact that it is a holiday and a day off work. Other people are irritated that there is yet another holiday to inconvenience them by closing banks, the postal service, and other government offices. Thank goodness, there […]
