My church hosted a seminar on the environment and faith; the two should be closely linked. Being a good steward of the gifts of mother Earth is the right thing to do.
It requires using our hearts, minds, and spirit to do something for this creation of nature we have been given. It’s essential to do things such as recycling, conserving energy (yes I am not always good at that), and extending the life of the things I use to make life easier.
As a believer, I am glad to do these things because it’s a way of showing how much I want this planet to be there for future generations. Love your neighbor as yourself extends to being concerned for the environment. Caring for creation is a statement of faith.
Anyone who has a dog knows that they have some very deep thoughts, that they have moods and emotions, they get their feelings hurt. It’s not a far reach to give them opinions and values and long-term desires.
Friends, it’s going to be really cold here overnight. People are getting ready for it by going to Walmart and the Grocery Store. Add that it’s the Thursday before Christmas then it’s even more chaotic. Life is oh so very interesting during days like this.
I ordered lunch today at 11:25 or something like that for a delivery at 12 to 12:15. Well it didn’t show up until 12:55. If my lunch was 10 to 15 minutes late, no problem. But almost 40 minutes late is just not right. I do know everyone is doing their best but there’s a threshold between running behind and flat out late.
Thank goodness it was a cold sandwich so the quality didn’t suffer much. I’m not going to order from there for a while. I’m grateful for restaurant staff however you have to deliver in a timely fashion.
