30 Posts of Obscurity: Hatred

We have just enough religion to make us hate,  but not enough to make us love one another. ~Jonathan Swift
“You can safely assume that you've created G-d in your own image  when it turns out that G-d hates all the same people you do. ~Anne Lamott

Cocktail Twenty-Twelve

Life is a cocktail of the mundane, important and tragic. This past year has been another turbulent year, but I am grateful for how it has ended. Peace rules my new home, compassion permeates each conversation and laughter rings throughout. Work is performed diligently, right behavior is valued and honesty is absolutely a must. I couldn't be happier. And I am loved unconditionally. Finally.

The landscape of relationships in January 2012 were very different than what they are now. Over the months of this last year, heartfelt promises have been broken, hard-won trusts suffered betrayal and closely-guarded selfishness has been held to a higher priority than the difficult task of unconditional love. Required  and long overdue decisions needed to be made and executed, and I pray that all will benefit in the end. For I can say without doubt that I waited upon the LORD and His wise and loving direction. He was (and is) faithful.

I thank the LORD for the relationships that have proven them…

Drippy Way to Spend the Day

Tuesday, December 25th.

No, I don't celebrate this holiday. However, the rest of humanity that lives close to me does. To that end, 99% of business are closed. Traffic is sparse and vacant parking lots are a little on the eery side. Nevertheless, we decided to get out and see what there was to see.

I thought you might enjoy the sights of Christmas Day in the Northwest.
