100-Word Stroll, 11/21/16: INSIDE THE WRAPPER

My racing thoughts came to a tire-smoking NASCAR stop.  I backed up and read it again.  It read the same way. The cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. I thunk thoughts.

QTMs for 5/16/16: “YEAH, WELL, IF ADAM HAD BEEN A LIBERAL —-“

I think I’ve figured it out. Christians – derisively called Those Conservatives or The Far Right by those of the port-turning persuasion – habitually pray and tell God, “I’m sorry” more because they’re trying to please Him.

According to Solomon, Proverbs was written . . . “To teach the inexperienced the ropes and give our young people a grasp on reality….” because “God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding.  He’s a rich mine of Common Sense….”  (1:4-6; 2:6-8) He said his dad, King David, would sit him down, … Continue reading »
