He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou find refuge: His truth is a shield and buckler

Be it ours,when we cannot see the face of God, to trust under the shadow of His wings. C.H. Spugeon

Just; Pride and Prejudice

"According to St. Augustine's theology, original sin has three consequences: (1) we don't know where happiness is to be found (ignorance); (2) we look for it in the wrong places (concupiscence); and (3) if we ever find out where it might be found, the will is too weak to pursue it anyway."

Pride and Prejudice

Disappoint is a very large word. Although by definition the word refers to a sense of displeasure or an aspect of failed expectations its full implications are really matters of the heart. Of course I am talking about the
relational, not how disappointed I am that I did not win the Lottery.

Black Or White

A result is black or white. It is the conclusion, the consequence, the outcome, the end-all. It is the final determination of the sequence of events, processes, decisions and choices made prior to the finish.
A result is the final determination without recourse. It is black or white.

Facebook Deleted

Facebook is a social network service. I always considered 'social' to be a verb, however, by definition, it is either a noun or an adjective.

‘NEC TENUI PENNA’

Nec tenui ferar penna – 'On no feeble wing shall I be borne'
The motto means, literally, “nor on weak wing”


A more scholarly tradition identifies it as a fragment from an ode by the Latin poet Horace, the first two lines of which translate:

“On neither weak nor vulgar wing shall I be borne through liquid air.”

Another Year

Another year is past and another year yawns into the present.

Many at this time search and reflect upon the past and project into the future.

It is a time for resolution, reflection and resolve.

Many will make resolutions for the coming year.
