“Ohh hiii!! It’s me Nornor! Here’s me at my follow up eye appointment right before I got the hiccups and lurched my milkies all over Mommy!”
“I still can’t keep my pretty eyes always lined up together, but I’m not favoring one over the other, so I don’t have to wear any patches anymore! Yay!!”
“I had an early morning appointment so by the time I got back home, everyone was just waking up! It’s so nice to have my sister and brudder back from Texas! I missed them sooooo much!!!
“Looks like it might be time for a naps!”
“Mommy thought Gavin wanted a nice picture of his Muthr. Mommy later found this gem on her phone.”
“Um.. Excyoooz me!!! Someone?”
(I made pukes all over everything and had to be stripped down! I’m kinda stinky.)
“Ahhh my Daddy LOVES me!!!”
“I like having dinners with my family!”
“Much later that evening I went on a run with my Dad and my brudder who was on his bike! We should have had some piña colada for when we got caught in the rain!!!”
“It felt so good to cuddle up with my sister!”
“She teaches me things!”
“Mommy and I had to stop for a milkies break on our walk this morning!

“Later in the day brudder and sister and Mommy got to ride on the Eagle Savings float in a parade.”
“They got DOUSED!!!”
“Dat doesn’t look like fun for me! I’ve already had my share of getting caught in the rain!!”
I was saddened by a protester standing on a street corner during the parade with a megaphone screaming so loud you could barely hear what he was saying. How sad and broken that person must be inside to be so hateful to his fellow mankind. What sickened me is that he thought he was doing it in the name of the Lord. Who in the world might possibly benefit from that audacious display of malevolence? Who in the world would ever be interested in seeking a relationship with God when they see a supposed Christian carrying on like a rapid dog on a street corner with a megaphone? NO ONE wants any belief system shoved down their throat, especially one that is iced in hatred. That is NOT what Jesus would have done, my friend!!! Very sad.
If anyone boasts, “I love God,” and goes right on hating his brother or sister, thinking nothing of it, he is a liar. If he won’t love the person he can see, how can he love the God he can’t see? The command we have from Christ is blunt: Loving God includes loving people. You’ve got to love both.
