While enjoying some nice Laziale bianco (goes great with antipasti, primi piatti e pesce) and some Spanish black olives, I was thinking of how good God has been to me in the light of 1 Chronicles 17:16 "Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my house, that Thou hast brought me thus far?"
I began this blog in answer to our culture of voyeurs - people who watch rather than participate. Not that blog viewers seek vicarious rather than real experiences, but that as long as I'm here, I might as well be the one who takes the photos so as to share with the others who are not, for whatever reason, here.
Being a spectator is safe (and free). To be here and there has a cost. It is said that God provides food for every bird, but that He doesn't place it in the nest. I want to take this moment to thank those marvelous persons who have contributed to my education through their giving to me via this blog (they bequeath much). God reward you!
