a crutch is of no use to a dead man

Those who call the Christian religion a crutch misfire their insult, for they intend to diminish believers, yet they elevate believers at the expense of Christ and His work, for a crutch is of no use to a dead man, and such were we. Christ has done no less than raise us from the dead. There is no crutch that can do that.

How does my Heart Know?

Last week my younger daughter moved with her soldier husband to Germany. I don't know how, but my heart knows that she's far, far away for a long, long time.

Her sister lived in Pennsylvania three and a half of the last eight years, and that was far and long enough, but the nest wasn't yet empty, and I never felt like she wouldn't, before too long, be back in Louisiana to live. Sure enough, she's back in Baton Rouge.

It might be a long time before my younger daughter again lives near me.

Be sure you have a good umbrella

I try to ignore the presidential election as much as possible because the odds that either major party candidate will do what I think he should do (or even just do what he says he will do) is about equal to the odds that I can influence the outcome of the election, which is approximately zero. However, like a moth, I am drawn to the flame. I can't say that it doesn't affect me but it's kind of like the weather: it is what it is and it's gonna be what it's gonna be, and it's about as predictable. The most effective thing we can do about either is pray.

I'm blogging from Pennsylvania from my daughter's Apple IMac Book thing. It's our first visit here since she moved here two years ago. She's serving the church with a college campus ministry. We're very proud of her.

Today I called my mother back in Louisiana and she told me that my baby brother is being deployed. He's my baby brother but he'll be 44 this month. He's been a reservist since his college days. He has seven children and another on the way. He'll be deployed for a year beginning in October.

in memorium

Just a few of the folks I would have liked to have seen at Rosie's wedding,

Martha Frances and Joe, Aunt Gertie, John and Jane, Mrs Yeargan, Aunt Elnora and Uncle Gilbert, Uncle Buck, Ron, Lenny, JJ, Gerald, Keith, Matt, Dean, but mostly, John Edd and Sibyle, grandparents of the bride.

May we all be reunited at the last wedding.

Please add any names I left out.
