Dalton is an amazing man. When he was just past fifty, he contracted a rare disease, the name of which takes two lines to write down. In effect, his organs have begun to reject his body, much as if he had had an organ transplant. He lost weight, he can no longer swallow or speak, and he is susceptible to every cold and virus that is going around. Yet Dalton is a trooper. He communicates well with lip movement and signs, plus a fancy computer that talks what he types (misspellings make some pretty interesting sounds!).
Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff. The first generation liberated from Egypt died in the desert because they didn’t learn. And when the people pointed with oohs and ahhs towards current events, Jesus asked them to learn from the past to recognize that some things are not as significant as the eternal choices.
The government has finally woken up to the fact that the health of our children in this country is threatened by their food. For two generations, since World War II, food has become increasingly processed and the era of the fast food meal is well and truly with us.
Karen hates church. She feels it's a place where people are brainwashed. She thinks the people who go to church are weak, looking for a crutch in sermons that tell them how to behave. Karen clearly has an issue with established religion.
