Medieval times: astrologers, kabbalists, illuminations, textualizations, and the evil inclination
The most interesting, and Wonderful, and unexplainable. It is the Heart of God, Glory! How He could reach into the muck of humanity and find a lost and unworthy soul and Redeem them. I was in fact one of the most unlikely ones to come to the knowledge of a Living, Wonderful Savior. I was 33 years, agnostic, and hopeless sinner. I only cared about myself and what was in life for me. I even hated myself, even though I didn’t to any, punishable by man, crime, I still was, in my eyes now the most evil person. I, thanks to Jesus Christ, had no time for drugs, I did drink alcohol, on a limited basis. It was on that wonderful day, in Feb 1976, that the Lord Jesus Christ opened my eyes to the Wonder of His Redemption, how He paid it all and It was a Free Gift. I now can only say Glory to God, and Bless the Name of Jesus Christ in what I do.
Feeding the swamp monsters. I ate ALL my vegetables after that.

I’m Bayley, and Bashie is my friend. I’m still 6 but I’m going on 7. My potato rock has a name. It’s Mr. Potato Rock, and I always bring him with me. He’s one of my best friends.
HI. I’m Bayley’s brother. I think this cartoon should be in the NY Times!
Oh, i just saw all these. Thanks so much for your messages, Bayley and Nobu. How is Mr. Potato Rock?
Bashie, where did you used to keep him? Like on your night table?
Not on my night table on the kitchen island. A rock island I guess.
