Sunday Morning Open Thread

Just haven’t got anything to write about for the AM.  Does it seem to you that we’re kind of waiting on the edge of a precipice?  Like the world is holding it’s breath, waiting for some big event which will clarify and give direction?

We do seem to be in a bit of a bad way…economy faltering, leadership incompetent, enemies strengthening, wars and rebellions in abundance, starvation stalks some lands, disease takes its toll…it is said that grave crisis often throws up the person needed to lead out of it.  One thinks of Lincoln and Churchill and how they were superbly matched to their hour…will we get such?

At any rate, regardless of what happens, remember that all will come out right, in the end.  It isn’t, ultimately, in our hands:

I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with all my heart,
for you have heard the words of my mouth;
in the presence of the angels I will sing your praise;
I will worship at your holy temple.

I will give thanks to your name,
because of your kindness and your truth:
When I called, you answered me;
you built up strength within me.

The LORD is exalted, yet the lowly he sees,
and the proud he knows from afar.
Your kindness, O LORD, endures forever;
forsake not the work of your hands. – Psalm 138:1-2,  2-3, 6, 8

Have a great day!

    That is exactly how many of us feel.

        Did Spook and Ama run off together?

        No, I’m still here; don’t know about Amazona. I’ve just had a busy couple weeks, starting off with a week-long visit from my daughter and grandsons, followed up with my wife’s 50th high school reunion, which involved several days of festivities, ending with a picnic this afternoon.
