  1. PRAYER BADLY NEEDED

    I'm just briefly checking in, and then I'll probably be gone again for a while.

    My grandmother just turned 92.

    My parents and I are taking care of her.

    I had high blood pressure. I started taking blood pressure medicine, and that's gotten it down. There is no doubt it my mind that my current situation contributed to the high blood pressure, though I'm sure there were/are other factors, too.

  2. Monotheistic Dances part 5

    When we consider the three great Monotheistic religions, some want to see all the things that make them equal. But, to a 'true believer' they are all different in the places that count. Christianity and Islam, of late, have been tried to be glued together under 'Chrislam' all in the name of peace and religious syncretism. Indeed, Mohammad, in seventh century Arabia, tried to do a little 'rewriting' of his own.
