I believe it's what we believe that makes all the difference for us while living on this earth. I take the Bible seriously but not literally. And I try to follow Jesus without embarrassing God.

"When two people relate to each other authentically and humanly, God is the electricity that surges between them." Martin Buber
I was thinking about you recently and came and saw that you haven't been here for a while. I've missed you. Then last night I harvested my herbs and among them was the marjoram. It's scent was the best of all the herbs and bits and pieces of it kept turning up all over my house. But thinking of it made me think of you and miss you all the more!

I was delighted to discover after my purposely staying away from BNET for over a month that the 'scourge of the Christian discussion boards' has finally been banned/suspended! Good job BNET! This was a guy who would continually curse his fellow Christians and say that he was 'speaking for God'. I don't think he was very Christian at all, just a bit crazy, and I'm glad BNET finally realized this. Thank you at last!
