The Laws of Psalms

 I love small towns that can still do stuff like this if they so wished.
Imagine hooking up your horse to a buggy to go shopping.
Time is never an issue.  Safety is.
It would be a days event to go out, shop, socialize with
the town folk and enjoy the fresh air and sights.

It sure beats the traffic jams people sit in today when they honk and scream
at people cause they have no time to waste.
This is not life.
When people teach you to change, it's not always the best thing to do.

The old adage "go slow, go farther" is still a good one to follow.
Psalms 1 book 1

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
 nor stands in the way of sinners,
 nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
 but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
 and on his law he meditates day and night.

He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its' fruit
in its' season, and its' leaf does not wither.
 In all that he does, he prospers.

 The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
 nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
 for the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
 but the way of the wicked will perish.
I read this and what comes to mind is fads.
Fads come and go.
These come in different forms in things like music, fashion,tattoing,
 liberal ideas...
but truth never wavers. It stays the same.
It is not a fad. It is boring but it is also wholesome
and good.
It keeps people strong in body mind and spirit.
People may fight it in law courts and governments
but it cannot be defeated because other ways never work.

Every liberal thing you do, has a price to pay and we just can't depend
on society to be dumped on for ever.
We can't expect house prices to rise forever.
We can't expect taxes to keep going up for ever
We can't expect jobs to last forever, not salaries to keep up
especially when changes take place quicker than we can keep pace with.
Yesterday we went out for dinner and they told us we had to pay in cash cause the machines
were not working. (We think the owner can't pay his bills). He complained that the prices were
increasing and it was hard to run the business. I told him complain to the government.
They have to know. He laughed . Said ya right, like they care. I told him yes they do.
I write about the potatoes we buy. They are expensive, hard to cut, full of black dots and half has to be thrown away. It's unacceptable when prices go up and food has to be thrown out for the rats which seem to be running around these days on city streets.
One got into my garage and ate my poor chinchilla.

 As our bodies, minds and spirits rot, so do the off spring that we produce
for they have no strong foundation, no rich soil to grow upon.

We learn quickly that
Blessed is the man who walks not in counsel with the wicked.
