It seems that the more self contained and independent one was, the harder it is to be in a helpless condition. Actually we are always dependent on God, but due to...

    As My mom lies in the hospice, slowly fading away, I clean her kitchen of years of her smoking habit (which has brought her to this point by the law of cause and effect). She smoked while leaning on one spot on the kitchen counter, resulting in the discoloring of that cabinet into a sickly, slimy, yucky yellow brown color. Just imagine how her lungs look! I have to scrub it repeatedly, and then I open the cabinet doors to find discolored dishes. I have a lot of work to do just to make her...

    Made a connecting flight in Dallas/Fort Worth, and I am now at 33,000 feet. I have 1/3 of the journey to go, as we fly over rugged terrain broken up by roads, small hills, a few towns, an occasional river with the muddy color of spring rains. The straightness of many roads, reflecting the organizing brain of human beings seems like such a contrast to rolling hills, jagged mountains, windy rivers and puffy clouds.
