Dear Wife is heading across the back yard to "watch" the Little One next door as mom goes off to work. Another day of "fun" I guess.
Not much to say today. I'm avoiding comment on most of the political wrangles that are ongoing. My opinion is but one of several hundred million, a sneeze in a windstorm. I have my own opinions, beliefs, and preferences of course. But so does everyone else. And my powers of persuasion don't seem to be accomplishing much except to antagonize people terribly, some of those people being persons I have long regarded with respect and/or affection.
Our reading from the Old Testament today is chapters 31, 32, and 33 of Isaiah. Sometimes, I see some disturbing parallels between our world today, and the world in Isaiah's time. And we know what happened then. It can happen again. And probably will.
The New Testament reading before us is chapter 1 from the Epistle to the Phillipians.
