They looked around, wondering where Danny was.  Again.  Like his namesake, he could be depended upon to get bored with social settings and being proper.

Q(uiet) T(ime) M(usings) for3/30/16: You Don’t GOTTA Do NOTHIN’.

He’s still on duty. The angel?  Tomb with “Vacancy” lit?  Yeah, the angel, he’s still there.  Well, one of them is.  It’s permanent duty, so they rotate. You like historical markers, right?  Well, there’s one about 8 yards over to the right of the Tomb, brown sign, white posts and lettering.  Official.  It reads: All four gospel … Continue reading »

When Jesus said, “It is finished” He did not mean it’s all over. When God’s involved, it’s NEVER over!  EVER!  Where’d we ever get the notion that when Jesus could barely grit his teeth and get enough breath to utter, “It is finished”, it somehow automatically translates to LOSER?

2016 Holy Week QTMs: MONDAY. . .

Looking on at the hubbub surrounding what became Palm Sunday is instructive. People in the crowd:  “YAY!  HE’s going to fix this mess!  No more Rome; no more Rome…!” Disciples:  “Okay, this is more like it, although I still think riding into town on Thunderbuns would’ve looked more studly.  17 hands, so white he glistens, … Continue reading »

If you are losing a tug-of-war with a tiger, give him the rope before he gets to your arm. You can always buy a new rope.
