Blogging Break

It is only a 24 hour break because I have pictures in the wings just needing to be edited.

This evening I went out to book group. Hence the lack of blogging. But it is always nice to get together with some of my favorite ladies and laugh and talk about a book.

We read The All-Girls Filling Station's Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg. Yes, I know it is a mouthful, but it was a really fun book. I like how the author added actual historical facts to her story, so not only did I enjoy a fun read, but I learned something. Can't beat that. (Look up WASPs from WWII.)

While I am here, let's talk about some another item in the news. I tend to not talk about current events. Usually because I don't watch the news and I am completely clueless to what is going on unless Tyler filters down information. But I think you would have to be living in a hole to have not heard about the terrorist attacks in Paris.

I am saddened when innocent people are affected by the negative actions of other people who are misled in their beliefs. I have never understood how terrorists claim to be carrying out the work of God. What kind of God is this? It is certainly not the type of God I would want to follow.

There is more I would say about this topic, but it is already past my bedtime. My heart goes out to all those families who are suffering from loss at this time. Life is precious. Give those you love an extra hug tomorrow.

Unfortunately history shows that many beliefs feel it is acceptable to persecute those who don't believe the same. Look at 'Bloody Mary' who was queen of England and burned Protestants at the stake. Look at the Spanish Inquisition. And these were Christ-based religions (or so they claimed). Religion and Politics - two very touch subjects.
