WordPress has updated its software to use what they call Gutenberg editor. We’ll be evaluating it over the next few weeks, but some say it’s not a good move. It appears to complicate usage for people who just want to get in and write.
So if you see some bumps in our sites, please be patient. We use WP on most everything we do online. So far, the update has been made only to my personal site. We may put off changes, or install the classic editor to see how long we can put off the inevitable.
Change is a constant. There can be downsides to change, and sometimes it can provide great opportunity. If these modifications to WP represent a watershed, we’ll look for the silver lining in the cloud.
1. I was blessed last Friday: I was directly under the light bulb in my office bathroom when it exploded and sent pieces of glass flying. Not a single one landed on me.

[Education] consists in nothing else but learning and doing God’s truth (John 8:32), which puts one in very close contact with a man named Jesus. Antagonists of the gospel long ago came to see that Jesus had a most unsettling way of turning the socially unlearned into the spiritually enlightened. “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13). You see, being with Jesus is the education.

The Daily Prompt today is “measure.” The prompt word reminds me of my Granny Matheny’s favorite Bible verse, which she shared with me as a young boy:
“Give, and it will be given to you: A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be poured into your lap. For the measure you use will be the measure you receive” Lk 6.38.
Granny was a giver in good measure.

My comments and posts have been scattered across the social-media universe. Today, I made a big decision to bring all that to my personal website. Here. That means you’ll now see, in all likelihood, several posts a day. If you’re subscribed to the website through the WordPress/Jetpack system, you’ll get emails. If that’s too much for you, you can hit the unsubscribe link in any of the emails. Continue reading
One post can’t do justice to even a small slice of my spiritual journey. But here are some points I’ve been pondering that might encourage you as you look toward the new year.
PRAYER. It seems to be a fair, if anecdotal, assessment that Brazilians are more interested in prayer than Bible study, and Americans are more interested in Bible study than prayer. I’ve tried to learn more for, and practice better, my prayer life. Continue reading
#1. This little couplet has been hanging around for a few days, with nowhere to go. It decided to slip in here tonight, under the radar: Continue reading
DST removed an hour from our sleep last night, so be aware that you in American Central Time are now four hours behind us. (Oops, that is, after you go off DST there.) If it’s 9 am here, it’s 5 am there. Please don’t call me at 10 pm your time. Continue reading
