‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭1:18‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Clearly there will be some good that results from this pandemic. Social media abounds with all sorts of religious implications; and, while I believe that God cannot be pleased with our world’s behavior, I know that He is indeed in control and will use this time, as always, for good. Families are spending more time together, the simple pleasures are being appreciated, and the realization that we are not in control is understood. Our society is focusing on the essentials and realizing that our healthcare system has become a political pawn. The true heroes are being recognized and life is being valued. There will be many lives lost, many that could have been saved by earlier heeding of the warnings; but, sometimes our own weaknesses prevent us from making the best choices. We can only hope that we learn from this pandemic and change our behavior.

Why does a Rooster Crow?

CDD3B739-9F25-493A-B164-C7470C461EFAWhy does a rooster crow? There are a number of stimuli that cause a rooster to crow, but apparently it usually represents times when he is claiming his territory or responding to danger. Sometimes I “crow” when there are potentially dangerous scenarios, but often, I am rebuked for such. Somehow I wonder if other chickens/animals are also feeling threatened by the rooster’s crow. Mr. Rooster, keep crowing—I respect your sound judgment.
