“Seek good, not evil, that you may live. Then the Lord God Almighty will be with you, just as you say he is. Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts. Perhaps the Lord God Almighty will have mercy on the remnant of Joseph”. (Amos 5:14-15)

Don’t take my word on Washington and our elected representation. Check out this young native from India on YouTube. Learn Truth as his research has revealed it, then determine our next step. That’s what I get from MY box of chocolates. AMEN

“Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight; stop doing wrong. Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.”  This is God speaking to the Prophet Isaiah, chapter 1:16-17. We all need to take a bath and start doing God’s Way. Our government needs to stop hypocrisy and start doing right. We must follow that dictate ourselves. Our President just ‘defended the oppressed’ and some up in Washington came unglued, calling him a ‘warmonger’. We must approach life with justified hearts caring for widows and orphans and leave the rest to their own labor. America must stop doing selfish stuff and return to being the light of righteousness to a world walking in darkness, spend less time on improving our bodies and more time on cleansing our minds. Why do we not know all this?  ‘Tis a Puzzlement and that’s what I get from MY box of chocolates.   AMEN

My first Stage directing experience was back in 1957 when moved back to Mt. Pleasant and lived with my parents. Marilyn was expecting Steven and I was on-air at KIMP radio. One of the announcers was in the cast of the Rotary Club sponsored stage play, “George Washington Slwpt Here”.  The whole production was in trouble.  The original member who was to direct the play was unexpectedly transferred to another city and the club assigned the task to a member who had been in a play one time before. He was totally at a loss and when I appeared to observe and had just been the lead in a production of “Anastasia” in Amarillo, he asked if I would assist.  I did and it soon became my ‘job’. Just as everything had been before, it came naturally. The production went off without a hitch and I made friends with the lead cast member who proved to be of benefit when I was ‘fired’ from my radio job, simply because I had filled in as the reporter of the “Local News” during the vacation of the regular news lady who was also the station manager and sister of the owner. She was furious when upon her return, so many complimented her on her choice of substitutes. She demanded that I be let go. Fortunately, my friend from the play had a great job with the plant protection force at Lone Star Steel and since I had a college degree, he introduced me to the chief  and he hired me immediately. That was a great job!  I even enjoyed ‘shift-work”. After nearly a year, we were going to move to Lone Star, residing in ‘plant housing’, but God had something else in mind. A phone call changed my life. Bryan Public Schools needed a girls PE and choral teacher and we filled the bill. School politics did me in and broadcasting called. I worked some at KORA radio and KBTX tv in Bryan as well as bi-vocational music minister. A call from First Methodist Church in Brenham, Texas took me on another venture. Even after all the sensational career in broadcasting and theater, it has always been my regret that I couldn’t stick it out as a teacher. I believe that to be a big regret on the part of may parents, also. And that’s what I get from MY box of chocolates.  AMEN

When Absurdity abounds, think on this from the Book of Micah:  “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” 

I’ve put up a good fight for a number of years, but it’s time to admit health issues will prevent me from continuing video visits. It’s time to call in professional assistance, full time. My caregiver saved my life and has done exemplary ministry, but she needs a break. I qualify for ‘home health care’ and am accepting it. Linda, Adriene and I will continue to share expenses here in Rowlett, but my daytime care giver will come from that provided by Medicare. As I close in on age 89, into age 90, it’s time to allow assistance from professionals. It beats a nursing home, donchaknow.  Today, I get this thought from My Box of Chocolates. As the Prophet Micah says, “I will act justly and love mercy and walk humbly with God!” When all around is lost as a goose, why not?  Won’t you join me in my comfort zone?  Thank you for following my blog! And that’s what I get from MY box of chocolates.  AMEN
