That waterfall looks so soothing and peaceful! Lovely Yeats writing also, Conor. Hope you’ve had a nice and peaceful Thursday! TGIF is coming right away!

Who, Me???



Dutchess of Sutherland



Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Who Do We See?

March 30, 2012

For many years, Allen Funt’s Candid Camera television program delighted viewers by using a hidden camera to catch the often hilarious reactions of ordinary people to unexpected situations. Their approach, according to his son Peter was: “We believe people are wonderful, and we’re out to confirm it.” Peter feels the perspective of some other similar shows is that “people are stupid, and we’re going to find ways to underscore that.”

His comments point out that our view of people determines how we treat them.

The citizens of Jericho were offended when Jesus went to the home of Zacchaeus the tax collector. “When they saw it, they all complained, saying, ‘He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner’” (Luke 19:7). Yet, when Zacchaeus had a deep change of heart (v.8), Jesus told him, “Today salvation has come to this house . . . for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost” (vv.9-10).

My friend Bob Horner says, “When we see people as losers, we treat them with contempt. When we see them as lost, we treat them with compassion.”

Jesus doesn’t see losers, only lost people He loves. When we look at others, who do we see?

Oh, give me, Lord, Your love for souls,
For lost and wandering sheep,
That I may see the multitudes
And weep as You did weep. —Harrison
Those who have been found should seek the lost.

Read: Luke 19:1-10

The Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost. —Luke 19:10
Bible in a Year:
1 Kings 1-4

Good Morning Mayor. Once again ODB provides us with a great devotion.

Got a follow-up visit with my Dr. this morning up in Sacramento. Things are going okay except for the continuing pain and weight loss. I haven’t weighed this amount since my early high school daze. If I turn sideways I disappear from people’s vision. ;^)

Beautiful prayer. Let us remember it throughout the day.

So cute, jaycee!

Then there's the other side of that coin. Little ones calling their Mom by her first name. You just never know! :)

Very pretty, teenie. I didn’t feel like putting together a red Friday graphic. We all must have had a bad day as there wasn’t much posting but I found that baby and it tickled me...that look on his face was really something! LOL!

I don’t much like kids calling their mothers by their names instead of Mom or Mama or Mother. I guess its what we teach them. That subject never arose in my household....I guess its the younger generations, maybe??
