Very insightful, Devra!  I love all the quotes included and I do think we work harder to be "of good cheer" at this dark and cold time of year.  Good to be reminded that "still there is much that is fair" in spite of all the bad news and gloomy  headlines.

Thanks to Katie and all the others for their ideas and comments.  I am still learning!  As the father of 4 daughters and 4 granddaughters, this is very pertinent. As the oldest child from a family of 5, I know my parents expected more from me (and I resented that at times).  There was no doubt, however, that I had a certain prestige and more priveleges as the top dog in the house.  I like Katie's thoughts along these lines . . .   a helpful piece for me to read and ponder.

Thank you.

Devra - all I can say is "wow"!  You knocked it out of the park today!  You and Max are gifted with words and manage to articulate the half-baked thoughts of folks like me- who ASPIRE to write so brilliantly and may, on occasion, write a piece that others find insightful or helpful.  Your gifts enkindle my own aspirations and I hope someday to be in your league.  Keep writing.  You have the GIFT!  

Thank you.

A very good observation, Devra - one that most of us have to learn (again and again).  I absolutely love the music of Keith Green, whose anti-Catholic sentiments surprised most of my Christian and Catholic friends alike.  I said "I buy his music, not his theology".  Every human being has something good to offer us - even if they are heretics or "anti" something important to us.  It takes many of us a long time to realize that we have the capacity to sort out the things that other people present to us.  Take what is good and leave the rest.

Stay informed
