Oh the passwords!

I'm entering into a crisis of memory. I can't remember passwords and user names and that's a problem...a big problem. I have people leaving comments on myspace and I've forgotten my user name. I have no idea what it might be. I've tried everything I can think of and to no avail. I'm doomed. My web based relationships are going to take a hit. My internet identity is going to have a blemish on it. What's going to happen to me?!?!?!?!!!! I'm on my way to sinking so low that I'll have to turn off my computer and go for a walk. You can always call me if worst comes to worst...or even come over, but that's only as a last resort ;-).

the crazy thing about earth day

So, I'm doing some research on Earth Day...which happens to be this Saturday... and found some really fantasticly great news about it that people for the past 30 years have probably known but was news to me. First, some background. I struggle against being part of a religious structure that tends to put the cart (full of unmentionables) before the horse so to speak. I am talking of the american capitalist christianity that allows for strip mining, toxic spills, deforestation, polution, and brings polititians to power who advoate for this type of behavior all in the name of the HEALTH, WEALTH and WORLD DOMINATION gospel of "Jesus"... Yuck.

So what I found out was that EARTH DAY was founded by a lovely spry 90 year old follower of Jesus (the meek shall inheret the earth guy). He wanted it to be a celebration of God's creation, peacefully uniting God's people in caring for the Creator's Creation! How cool is that?!?!

General revelation is striking me once again right between the eyeballs. As Spring (aka the sun) finally hits the rainy left coast and allergies slow me down, I am able to see my flowers growing, (sun=green=reds & pinks & blues & yellows). As all cultures turn to the worship the unknown creator god of their folklore I look to special revelation and see that I've been commanded to take care of the earth so that God's spoken power can continue to shine like the sun.

Take time to sit and look and smell and pray and pick up a piece of trash...and than the Creator for the bumble bee...
