Job was astonished at seeing Almighty God so intent on doing good to us
that He seems to have nothing more at heart than to love us and to induce
us to love Him in return.

Well from our photograph you can see that the caterpillars have had their fill.
They ate all that was in sight and now, they are out of sight.
I feel that I want to be the same for a bit, or at least for a few days…
as in out of sight.
Our friend IB, also known as the Princess keeper of the 9th circuit of hell…
someone has to live out there and try to hold those folks’ feet to the fire…
offered a wonderful post the other day…it was a bit of an eye-opener or perhaps
just a good ol kick in the pants sort of reminder.
We are inundated with both the negative and bad are we not?
EVERYTHING these days is bad…matters not which side of whatever fence you’re sitting on…
We read it,
we see it,
we hear it,
we watch it…
Conservative vs liberal
Republican vs Democrat
Anarchist vs law-abiding
Pro police vs anti-police
Black lives vs All lives
Trump vs Biden
Christain vs atheist
Abortionist vs Right to lifer
Mask wearer vs mask hater
Football vs no football
On and on it goes…
So much so that I am weary.
IB offered what seems to be a novel notion—-
perhaps we ought to be out looking for that which is good, which is heroic—
that which is positive rather than focusing on the negative and the bad..
And I think I’ll give it a go…
I’ll get back with what I find…
But for now…enjoy IB’s post and may you too go in search of all that remains…
When Good Men do Something:
In the meantime…I’m going to look for what I once knew about America…
there is still a whole lot of good going on…
