Whatever is pure, whatever is lovely

I don’t usually write about politics, and I’m usually not that interested either, but I just have to say this: I have had it up to here with hearing about how we live in such hard times. Yes, it qualifies as hard times if you’re one of the almost 6% who can’t find a job. But hard times for the whole country? That’s when *lots* of people can’t find a job, like in 1933, when unemployment was 25%. The Great Depression was hard times, and I would say the Carter years were as well. Right now, we just don’t have it that bad.

What would we know by now, if scientists hadn’t been assuming the truth of evolution and the non-existence of God for the last 150 years?

OK, I keep reading about Twitter, and I hate not knowing what stuff is about, so I looked it up. According to Wikipedia, it is “a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send “updates” (text-based posts, up to 140 characters long) via SMS, instant messaging, email, to the Twitter website, or an application such as Twitterrific.” Apparently you’re supposed to update it several times a day, and it sends these updates to all your friends, so they can know what you’re up to.

Fine. Now for the big question: Why? I have some very interesting friends, but I am sure that most of their days are spent doing fairly mundane things, much like mine. Have you been dying to hear the details of laundry day? Can anyone help me understand Twitter’s appeal to anyone older than say, sixteen?

Today my children are fighting over a Bible. “It’s mine!” Then the other one holds it out of reach. Do you think maybe we need to read said Bible? Too bad neither of them can read yet.

Do angels feel fear? My gut says no, because having seen God, they would be unimpressed by anything else that might cause fear. Any thoughts?
