Today’s Quote: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written: ‘But the righteous man shall live by faith.'” ~ Romans 1:16-17

I made it through 40 days of Lent without giving in to the temptation of Internet porn. I also made it through the six Sundays which, technically, didn’t count. I think that’s the first time I kept a Lenten vow of abstinence all the way through. Am I a better person for it? Probably not.
Yesterday evening I saw a program on the Protestant Reformation. I like some of Martin Luther’s ideas, but certainly not all of them. The program certainly gave me some things to think about. This afternoon, I discovered I had a book, The Teachings of Buddha. How long have I had that? I may as well read it.
Enjoyed the Easter festivities today. I tried not to overindulge in the deviled eggs but they are a hard temptation to resist. When leaving for home, I spied something green in the cellophane of a discarded cigarette pack. I picked it up and found that the green item was two dollars. At first I thought it might have been one of those coupons that encourage smokers to sacrifice their health for cool prizes. Two bucks isn’t much but it’s a better prize than some piece of junk with a tobacco company logo on it.
