  • Like others, I spent part of MLK day watching a documentary showing the life of Dr. Martin Luther King.  Certainly, on this side of history, we all know that he stood for right, and I greatly admire him for choosing the tactic of non violence! As Christians, we know racism is unbiblical and wrong. Yet there is one thing I noticed, and that is in every clip of every march, white people were present in the crowds, and not as protesters. 

  • We lived in New Orleans, LA (NOLA for short) for eleven years and the standing joke there was to say, “I think we had winter on Thursday last year.”  I used to say I could be a weather man in NOLA- “Hot and humid with showers at 3:00 pm.  My five day forecast would simply be "ditto, ditto, ditto, and ditto!" They say in San Diego it is usually a mild 72 degrees on most days. Wow! I could get into that.  However, in my beloved Texas, we can have sunny skies at 7 am, tornado warnings at noon, and a blizzard at 6 pm. The old saying in Texas is, “If you don’t like the weather, wait an hour and it will change.”   What is the relevance of this you ask?
