COVID-19 and St. Patrick’s Day Dinner

Nor would I have wanted to be the one who told her.

DCMontreal: Blowing the Whistle on Society

MadgeSham A cup of tea before St. Patrick’s Day dinner.

My maternal grandmother, and all of her siblings, was born in London, England. Her parents were Irish and, once married evidently made the decision to move across the way to England to seek a better life. So while my grandmother was English on paper her blood was 100% Irish. I suspect had the DNA testing been popular back then this would have been borne out, but we have only her word for it.

While in England she met and married my grandfather, a first-generation Canadian who was recovering from war wounds. After the Great War she moved to Montreal with her husband and never saw England again.

So while my grandmother was English on paper her blood was 100% Irish.

Her Irish ancestry played a major role in her life, particularly at St. Patrick’s Day.  It is interesting to note that…

What the FDA isn’t telling you about your antibiotic.

It is good to know that research and follow-up are being done now, but pity the poor people who have been adversely affected before anyone knew these things.

Mountains and Mustard Seeds

Dr. Charles Bennett submitted a petition to the FDA in 2014 , asking that Mitochondrial Toxicity be added to the FDA warning label for Fluoroquinolone antibiotics such as Cipro and Levaquin. He is a Hematological Oncologist and the director of SONAR (Southern Network on Adverse Reactions.) Sadly, before the FDA review; the scientist working on this research with Dr. Bennett at the University of South Carolina, was brutally murdered in his lab. The University of South Carolina, documented this tragic news in their newspaper. https://issuu.com/muscpr/docs/cat4-03finalwads This news proved both tragic for the university, the scientist, and all of those who have been injured by Fluoroquinolone antibiotics. Now the scientist who’d worked so hard on this research, could no longer be present to push the scientific research through the review process.

Psalms 1

Compare scriptures about seeking to edify with the statements by Job’s friends. Was their intent to edify? At first, was their mission to encourage or discourage?

Psalms 1

Here are some simple morning thoughts from reading through the Psalms.

Psalms 1:1-6

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

  • After so many years of little girl dreams about “one day” when I would be married, it’s amazing and exciting to finally be here – a wife, a helper, actually responsible for all those cares I used to imagine how I would manage. It’s such a sudden, new kind of life, that I feel almost like a child again – needing to stop and learn how to manage a simple day, needing to be taught the very basics. It’s been tempting to search online for advice and inspiration, but I need to shun worldly sources of counsel. Sometimes it sounds good, but it’s not the kind of counsel that will…

“ARE YOU WEIGHED DOWN?”

“Let us run with patience the race that is set before us” (Heb. 12.1)

     INTRO.: A song which encourages us to run with patience the race that is set before us by laying aside the things of this life that weigh us down and looking to the Lord is “Are You Weighed Down?” (#654 in Hymns for Worship Revised). The text was written by Craig A. Roberts (b. 1957). The tune was composed by Richard L. Morrison, who was born on Nov. 17, 1945, in Fullerton, CA, to Richard Lee and Doris Morrison. Because his father was a preacher, he lived in Washington, Oregon, several places in California, Arizona, and Texas during his youth.   His musical education began at the feet of the prolific and admired song writer Austin Taylor, who partnered with Edgar Furr to start the…

I’m Walking the Heavenly Way

I first learned about this brother when my husband and I rented a room from his widow. It is always great to realize that we don’t have to sing songs written by denominational false teachers.

I’M WALKING THE HEAVENLY WAY

“But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly…” (Heb. 13:16)

      INTRO.:  A hymn which expresses the desire for a better, heavenly country is “I’m Walking the Heavenly Way.”  The text was written and tune was composed both by George Henry Pryor (G. H. P.) Showalter, who was born at Snowville, VA, on Oct. 15, 1870, the son of J. T. and Sarah Catherine Showalter.  Baptized into Christ by his father on the second Sunday in March of 1883, Showalter was educated at the Greendale Institute of VA, Milligan College in TN, and the University of Texas. In 1891 he began preaching in Greendale, VA, and was an active preacher for 63 years. After teaching school and doing some evangelistic work in Virginia and West Virginia from 1892 to 1897, he came to Texas in 1897 and…
