Sing Praise to God — In the third person
I’m doing a reference to another blog again. Ponder Anew put up another wonderful ponderment about the word choices, in this case, which person of pronoun — first, second or third — is best for worship and why.

Final Analysis and Interpretation (Chapter 13 Adrian and Downs)

The six-legged spider
Okay, Pictorial blog today. Have a son who turned 15 this week, and Saturday was the birthday party. Here in the family I make cakes with themes that the kids choose. Been a lot of interesting themes, which I blogged about previously, but this time the boy didn’t have an idea, so left it up…
