Thinking About What Matters

Nature quote by Einstein

Gerald Schroeder, a scientist and interpreter of  the Old Testament notes that the creator he believes in wanted humans to learn about the world not by reading, but by communing with nature.

To read more about this  read God According to God   here’s a quote:

According to our best understanding of the universe and equally according to the most ancient commentaries on the book of Genesis, there was only one physical creation. Science refers to it as the big bang. The Bible calls it the creation of the heavens and the earth. Every physical object in this vast universe, including our human bodies, is built of the light of creation.

Emotional Fitness Tip

Whether you are Jew, Christian, Muslim, agnostic, or atheist your Emotional Intelligence rests in to a large degree on realizing you are not all-powerful, but you are also not without power. Be grateful, practice kindness, and think about what matters.

PRACTICE KINDNESS

Thank you for all you do.  Thank me by remembering sharing is caring; so is liking, or commenting. Your caring keeps me going.

The ship wrecked Moses Gordy arrived about the same time the first of my Broomall relatives. He came assure in Maryland and his relatives and mine from that branch of the family became slave owners, so I suspect he would be surprised to learn slavery had been outlawed.

Then there were the Irish who crept in somewhere along the line, who would laugh at my Safe Drinking Rules.

 Finally, my mother joked about some First Nation blood, but mainly when she was looking at one of her children’s dirty feet. “You are a child of the Blackfoot tribe.”
