A Recap From Monday

and since I am posting it today--you should understand how busy Monday was around here...

What are you grateful for today?

Oh geez—do we have time for the list?
R, E, N—the dogs, the buns, the sunshine, even the pollen from the trees.
El Mel’s for the gorgeous starter plants.  Flowers blooming.  Books.
Being in love.
Being happy.
Surviving the recent upheavals together as a family and being made stronger for it and by it.
Rain, even if accompanied by thunder and lightning.
So many many things…so many many people I haven’t even begun to name yet…

What's missing in your life?

More time—or maybe I should say the ability to make better use of my time…

Has the conflict and harm religion has caused outweighed the good it has produced?

Man, talk about a kettle of worms here.
Are we talking, worldwide and throughout history, any religion, every religion?
Personally, I think some religions have done a great deal of good—while others have spent centuries murdering, raping and pillaging in the name of a god who shudders at the thought.
