Easter Eggs


GOOD SATURDAY

Good Saturday

Long day hard day
Not so very good day

Strained and tired
Anxious and wounded

Heart skipping beats day
Want to run away day

Bulgy bear
Don't know why

Still alive day
Struggle on day

Grubbing hope
Seeking peace

Colored chalk and grandkids day
Easter eggs and glitter day

Small delights
Vast rewards

Swirling colors in the sink day
Dear memories remembered day

Retreating from battle
Seeking home

Please God make it stop day
Dear God thank you for this day

Joyful heart
Family strong

Good Saturday

Easter Poem For The Judges


Choices

At the center of the orchard
The old tree stands
Rejected beloved

Walls have grown
Deep down and tall
Cutting off both root and branch

Some still stand united, whole
Sharing soil and water
Separately together

The bitter selfish
Neither give nor take
But know they are the best of all

A Mess Of Politics


>In a shocking reversal, white evangelicals have gone from being the least likely to the most likely group to agree that a candidate’s personal immorality has no bearing on his performance in public office. Today, in fact, they are more likely than Americans who claim no religious affiliation at all to say such a moral bifurcation is possible.<

This is why so many Americans are turning away from all organized religion. The evangelicals have so corrupted their formally Christian faith into a crass political organization that young people all over America are thinking, "If that's religion, I don't want any!"

Genesis 25:34
Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew, and he ate and drank and rose and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.

For a mess of pottage, right wing "Christians" have sold their birthright.

Hail To The Loser



Donald Trump does not like "hail to the chief" as the presidential theme song. It's time to help him choose the replacement. He is now down to the two following selections. Click like for number one. Click share for number two.

1. (To the tune of Cathy's Clown)
🎶I want your loving more and more
I want your kisses that's for sure
I die each time
I hear the sound
They're saying here he comes
He's Putin's Clown

You know you've got to stand tall
You know a man can't crawl
And when you let Vlad tell you lies
And you let em pass you by
You're not a man at all

He don't want your loving anymore
He don't want your kisses that's for sure
Why do you let them put you down
And let em call you Putin's Clown

When you see me shed a tear
Then you know that I'm sincere
I just think it's kinda sad
That Vlad's treating you so bad
And I'm the one who cares

I want your loving more and more
I want your kisses that's for sure
I die each time
I hear the sound
They're saying here he comes
He's Putin's Clown

You're Putin's Clown
You're Putin's Clown🎶

2. (To the tune of I'm Your Puppet)
🎶Pull the string and I'll wink at you, I'm your puppet
I'll do funny things if you want me to, I'm your puppet
I'm yours to have and to hold
Putin, you've got full control of your puppet
Pull another string and I'll kiss your lips, I'm your puppet
Snap your finger and I'll turn you some flips, I'm your puppet
Listen, your every wish is my command
All you gotta do is wiggle your little hand
I'm your puppet, I'm your puppet
I'm just a toy, just a funny boy
That makes you laugh when you're blue
I'll be wonderful, do just what I'm told
I'll do anything for you
I'm your puppet, I'm your puppet
🎶

Hitler Is Hitler!

In response to a post criticizing Trump's desire to publish a weekly report on crimes by illegals, at which point out that the Nazis did this any special publication called "the criminal jew" I responded:

The point is valid, this is a disgusting act. However, we should always remember that comparing Trump to Hitler is a big mistake. Remember those old SAT questions? "Hitler is to Trump as Himmler is to __________."

The answer is Chief Wiggum. Himmler was the nerdy looking, but extremely effective , commander of the SS and the Gestapo, two of the most feared organizations in the history of the world.
Chief Wiggum is… Chief Wiggum.

Point to Hitler for hate, but laugh at the Trumpsters.

At Least They Didn't Call It A Hairball


One of the great scientific mysteries that fascinated me throughout childhood and early adulthood was the endless attempts to determine what caused the extinction of the dinosaurs. It was utterly fascinating and I followed the efforts and the new theories eagerly. Today I find the problem with black holes almost as fascinating. If you press an astrophysicist on the subject, he will admit that any time we start talking about infinities such as infinitely dense, infinitely hot, infinitely small it's an admission we don't know what we're talking about and that physics has broken down. (Note: this also applies to the big bang theory.)

Here's the new theory (new to me anyway) which solves a great many of the black hole problems, and it's based on string theory! Which in my book, makes it a double winner.

I am really stuck, though, on this issue of; if Alice reaches the black hole her strings are reproduced. I don't get it.

Light Poetry From A Loving Heart


Katie
My Katie
The girl of the bird
With the beautiful eye
Black glossy wings
A flashing of blue
Rushing of joy
For me and for you

Andrew
My Drew
My little boy blue
The cow's in the meadow
The sheep's in the corn
My love still here
And never foresworn

Rebecca
My Becca
My Beccachan you
For your precious art
Your sketched and you drew
Mine was my family
It's all that I do

Joshua
My Josh
Player of horns
Come break down the walls
Tear down the thorns
Be what you say
