Binge Watching Blues

The thing about binge watching a series that lasted one season is that you want more. However there is no more. That makes you sad, mad and glad you went through it. At the end you have the binge watching blues.

Firefly, you were amazing. You had heart, action, adventure and fire! Now I need a good weep.

A Ramble About Blogging

A blog is like a book being written daily. Every blogger is the star of their story. Each blog is the chronicle of a unique character who is finding their way in the world. I love blogging, bloggers, blogs. This is literature being made in real time. You inspire me to keep on blogging.

Rambling About The Response and Comments

I don’t mind responding to comments in my blog. Really I am a fairly open person. However I am not going to debate in the comments. There’s no point in doing so. It ruins the blogging experience for everyone. My philosophy in commenting is to be positive, encouraging, enlightening and kind. Doing anything else is not who I am.

When someone states what they believe don’t go trying to shoot them down by trying to tear down their beliefs to make you look bigger. People like that just come across as a know it all.

You can inform other folks about a larger view just by affirming what they say and perhaps adding to it if you can contribute something positive to the conversation. We all come from different levels of knowledge and different places in life so perhaps helping people learn something new without making them look dumb is good, this is something I am working on too.

Thanks for letting me rant and ramble a little. Feedback welcome.

What I Believe

A fellow blogger challenged me on what I believe. The person said they believed in science, physics, that sort of thing. Basically taking the whole notion of a divinity out of the picture. Friends I have no problem with incorporating the sciences in with my faith in a higher power, in my case the God of the Trinity (Father, Son/Jesus, Holy Spirit). My policy is to not attack the beliefs of others unless it might be doing serious harm to them. If someone is adhering to a faith that encourages them to care for themselves and others then its pretty good.

I am of the persuasion that every person has the right to a belief system that makes sense to them. For me it comes from a background of being in Baptist and Methodist churches.

It’s my belief that Jesus has a lot to offer people although he has gotten some really bad representation from some of his followers. He has inspired people to build orphanages, hospitals, schools and other institutions that have made our world a better place. It is in those schools that scientific and medical advances have been made. Jesus followers still call him the great physician so there’s that.

To be up front with you my interpretation of faith is that God’s story is still being written and that people should be loved no matter their gender, orientation, economic situation, social standing, etc. Friends It’s not my style to bash people over the head with the Bible. Religion/spirituality is still a very personal thing with many people.

So if you ask me what I believe….this is pretty much it.
