Now that the current Oval Office occupant has been defeated, it’s time to look once again to set a course to a bright future for our country. I hope that we the voters have learned a lesson from the dark days of the previous four years. But even more so, I hope that eventually we can once again come together in some semblance of bipartisanship. … Continue reading A New Morning In America…
I know there are several of you who follow me here are also interested in my spiritual posts. So, I thought I would let you know that I have a new one over at RedLetterLiving.net (click on the name here to go there). Continue reading An Update On My Spiritual Journey
I thought that since it has been six years since I seriously posted here, I would use this post as a catch-up to where I am in my spiritual journey and end it with a serious question that remains unanswered. I have personally founded my spiritual life on the teachings of Jesus. It was an epiphany moment for me when that finally happened. Since that … Continue reading My Spiritual Journey
A small part of my bloodline is Native-American, but maybe that is where my thoughts about obligations comes from. Serving the past, present, and future is kinda what I proudly am. Continue reading The Native-American Way
I hate to tell those folks in the hinterland that even farming will be rapidly changing in the not too distant future. I put out a post a few months ago about vertical farming but have been learning more since then. Vertical farming is the practice of cultivating crops in vertically stacked shelves and often in a controlled indoor environment. The pandemic is accelerating this … Continue reading Yeah, Even Farming…
I certainly miss those days. I pray that today will not go down as the day that caused thousands and thousands of people’s unnecessary deaths. The virus is NOT A HOAX. Continue reading A Thanksgiving Memory
I think it is time for another Aspie lesson on RJsCorner. This one is a very basic question Are Aspies Narcissists? One Aspie characteristic that I have in spades is I take things much more personally than NTs. I should probably stop here and explain NT. Those with Aspergers are considered more “neurodiverse” than much of the general population. To signal that difference people without … Continue reading About Aspies & Narcissism?
As I mentioned earlier, I am now limiting my regular posts here on RJsCorner to four times a week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and a short “trivia” post on Saturday. Limiting my posts here will give me time to do a better job at my other three blogs. I will be using my “off day” slots here for “by the way” (btw) snippets which will … Continue reading Explaining btw
This post is not about a specific conspiracy theory; it is more about the people who seem to be the most susceptible to them. I simply can’t understand how so many people so easily fall down the same rabbit hole! I gleaned most of the info from a recent New York Time article. Click here to see the whole article. Here is a snippet from … Continue reading About Conspiracy Theories
Check out my new post at RedLetterLiving about reclaiming the real meaning of Christianity from White Evangelicals. Continue reading Check It Out
In case you haven’t visited here before I want to let you know that there are now 39,000+ versions of Christianity around the world. I realize that thousands of them are limited to a particular congregation who split off another body due to differences in what to believe about God, but there are hundreds of versions that have millions of followers and unbelievably many have … Continue reading Take Back The Church Of Jesus
I have been a constant fan of the TV show Jeopardy and Alex Trebek for decades. So, as part of my revamp here at RJsCorner. Honoring Alex I am announcing that Saturdays here on my corner will now become Trivia Day. It will give you short snippets of info on things that are interesting but don’t really affect life on earth that much. 😎 No, … Continue reading Trivia Saturdays
As I have indicated on previous posts I am now starting the series called “Divided We Fall” or simply DWF. The two books that I have chosen to use as the foundation for this series are loaded on my Kindle Reader but, as I write this they have not been opened. There were two quotes that kinda points me to a possible solution to our … Continue reading The DWF Project
Check out a new post at RJsTravels about my visit to the Rendezvous at Ft. Bridger WY. Continue reading Check This Out
Last Wednesday I briefly told you that I am planning on juggling 4 active blogs in 2021. That seems kind of contrary to my statement of taking it easy. 😛 But since only RJsCorner has any sharp edges it should be much more peaceful than handling all the political issues of the last several months. The other blogs in the coming months are more narrowly … Continue reading Juggling 4 Blogs At The Same Time!!
Is there a Civil War that the GOP is waging for their version of America? Is it a “take no prisoners” time for them? Are they that panicked? They literally put all their eggs in one basket and that basket was rejected. Why would they do that? I think I have an answer to that. Maybe they see the writing on the wall in that … Continue reading What Will The 2020s Look Like?
It’s been years since I seriously celebrated Independence Day but this next one will deserve all the fireworks in China. It is only 65 days away! Maybe you were thinking of the July 4th? I am thinking of the one that is perhaps the most important for our future as a nation. January 20, 2021 That is the day we are finally shed of that … Continue reading Looking Forward To Independence Day
For this Sunday’s post I want to talk about one of my primary forward-looking objectives for my blog RedLetterLiving. I have done everything I can to not use #CO3’s (Oval Office occupant) name or image on any of my blogs. But, but since he will soon slink back to gutter he came from I put his name on the graphic above. I truly believe that … Continue reading The Trump/Evangelical Alliance…
I started RedLetterLiving twelve years ago yesterday to try to answer the basic question of how strongly Christian churches follow the teachings of Jesus. That part of my spiritual journey lasted six years. It was during that period that I went from a passive Sunday morning observer to actively growing my spirituality. I grew a lot during those years and since. What I found during … Continue reading In Celebration of Twelve Years
You have probably heard about the latest conspiracy theory floating among the MAGA folks. It goes something like this: The Democrats have put in millions of illegal ballots to defeat Trump. That like all the other conspiracy theories makes no sense. If they had actually done that then why wouldn’t they also assured themselves of a Democrat Majority in the Senate? But, I guess it … Continue reading Oh, The GOP And Their Conspiracy Theories
When we moved to this small southwestern Indiana town twenty years ago we envisioned spending a restful existence here for the remainder of our lives. Small-town life was appealing to us. I had pleasant memories of my high school years in a small town so why not spend my retirement years seeking those same type of memories. It started out pretty well. For the first … Continue reading Is This How You Want To Be Known?
I’m not sure when the Republican Party stopped being the party of Lincoln and started being the cloaked party of white power. I think it was kind of a slow evolution. But, it is obvious that they now represent the party of white power, the extremely wealthy, and little else. No, I am not talking about the radical fringe hate groups of today. Instead, it … Continue reading The Republicans Have Always Felt Victimized…
Now that first hurrahs are over about the current Oval Office occupant on his way out of our sight, I want to announce some changes here at RJsCorner. But first it is sooo nice to think that these pages will no longer be filled with the ugliness of recent months. It seems like I have been posting forever about how we needed to rescue our … Continue reading A Change of Pace & Subject
One of the most peaceful places I know is the Pleasant Hill Shaker Village near Lexington KY. I have been there more times than I can count. I go there in times of my deepest depression. It is a place to unwind and put things in perspective. As this election process is winding down I feel like I need to spend a month there to … Continue reading A Huge Sigh of Relief & A New Direction
I know the graphics above is usually reserved for Christian topics, but I am using it to rejoice that the despicable person currently residing in the Oval Office will soon be gone. Just 72 more days before he is evicted. HALLELUJAH. I’m sure that President Biden will be busy through the night of January 20, 2021, signing executive orders undoing as much of the damage … Continue reading Hallelujah!!
I am writing this post at 5:00am after my first peek at the election results. My first thoughts are that even if Biden wins, I am very disappointed in America! In 2016, many voted for an unknown narcissist hoping to see change. Yesterday, no one had the ignorance excuse for doing the same. So many still voted for a person who has clearly shown that … Continue reading Even If…
I believe we are all born with an empty heart and some of us fail to even begin filling it during our lives. There is nothing more tragic than an aged person with an empty heart. A person who feels no kinship with others, a person like Ayn Rand, who feels that empathy is a scourge of mankind. Most of us, but certainly not of … Continue reading With An Empty Heart…
I am going to use this Sunday post as one of the last in the political arena. Starting mid-November I will be making some fundamental changes in what I post about here at RJsCorner. More on that later… Let’s start off with some explanations for the logic behind the core of this post. I have had a veggie garden for most of my life. It … Continue reading Compost For The Next Generation…
