  • sounds like a good couple 20 minute naps to me....hey, do you think I could take them both together and make it a 40 minute TM session? I'll ask my boss if she'll go for that. :o)

  • I applaud your wariness but I'm a bit bothered by the tendency some of us have to give the enemy ownership of anything ancient and anything new.

    (That kinda limits what's left for the good guys.)

    I'm surprised how often Christians forget who the Creator is.

    It wasn't Satan who came up with the idea of running,weight-lifting and stretching.

    The devil didn't invent sleep,humor, sex,food,baths or the arts.

    He had nothing to do with the scientific method or respect for nature.

    This time of year,we give our foe credit for cats,bats,owls,skeletons,spiders,the moon and pumpkins.

    The rest of the year,he claims trees,goats,wolves,crystals,herbs - even unicorns and rainbows.

    Read a bit of Genesis.

    The stars,the darkness,everything was wrought by a loving hand.

    (How it was wrought and how long it took is another story.)

    I must have missed the part where evil gets permanent permission to usurp or corrupt everything he can and destroy the rest.

    My personal beliefs assure me that Heaven holds the copyright on all material things and all that concern the mind and spirit.

    Who benefits if people are warned off of reason and reflection?

    I figure old Slewfoot's version of things have about as much intrinsic worth as a 99 cent Prada bag.

    But anything he's peddling has to be based on an authentic product that he had the gall to counterfeit.

    When we let him paste his own label on God's work or buy his substandard knockoffs,we are forgetting who it all really belongs to.

    Other folk can deprive themselves of anything that might be pleasurable or enlightening.

    Other folk can turn their lives over to a lower impotence instead of a Higher Power.

    But every time I see a pile of equine excrement,I wonder if there might not be a pony waiting to be given to those with the faith to look for it.
