update and recap….

Was out walking for my lunch hour; placed my hand in coat pocket detecting the presence of a five dollar bill heretofore unknown to everyone but God…

Today’s my first day back at work since Wednesday last week. The office has been fairly calm but I do have quite a pile of new work on my desk. Of course this is a good thing in that it makes unemployment fairly unlikely….

The weekend was a blur of driving, shopping and visiting family. We had a great dinner at my Parents house and a good time was had by all. Baby Leah is cute as can be, happy and healthy. Mike having passed the benchmark second birthday has been promoted from Baby to Toddler and now fills the newly created Big Brother position in  the family.

What Orthodox Quakers Believe- Beliefnet.com

I took the quiz today and this was my top faith according to the quiz. I’m not a Quaker but I can see how I got the score as I do have many points of agreement with Quakers.  I grew up as  Lutheran and lately have been attending Eucharist at both Lutheran and Methodist churches.

I like the quaker idea of the Inner Light which I equate with the Holy Spirit but I don’t think I could sit still for a Quaker meeting.
