In Praise of the Completely Harmless!

Time for a sanity break–Dany Rosevear with a children’s song, Flippity-flop.

Now, why would I post a thing like this?

Because it’s harmless! Benign! Soothing! Not like the nooze.

Yes, we need to know what we’re up against; and we need to be angrier about it, too. They’re out there censoring us to kingdom come, wrecking our culture, exalting wickedness, etc., etc.

But you can’t be angry all the time. It’s not good for you.

I like to think that when you visit this little blog, you’ll find a lot more here than nooze. And it’s wonderful that we can share good and harmless things. (We have another hymn coming up, after I write Joe Collidge–who is neither harmless nor benign.) Those things remind us: God is nigh, He has not forgotten us. He challenges us, through Isaiah 50:1, “Where is the bill of your mother’s divorcement, whom I have put away? or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you?” He has not done either of those things! But, “Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold yourselves, and for your transgressions is your mother put away.”

The messes we’re in, we’ve created ourselves. It’s why the Father had to send the Son to earth to save us.

And meanwhile, He has given us many signs that He is still here–never farther than a prayer away.

  1. Yes, the knowledge of the presence of our Abba Father is all that makes this life worthwhile. Praise His Holy Name.

  2. Thanks for posting that, Lee. It’s touching to see someone that creates a video like that, simply to entertain and to spread a little happiness. There is not nearly enough of this in our day. She seems like a lovely person.
