I love my family, even on stress filled days like today. Our family is based in love for all of humankind, not just white vs. black, Christian vs. Muslim, gay vs. straight, or neurotypical vs. intellectually disabled.

Jesus preached not to judge, but to love thy neighbor. If you do not hold this above all else, no matter your religion, race, intellect, or sexual orientation, your walk amongst humans is heading you into a brick wall.

And you dont need Jesus to understand that. You might be atheist and still understand that loving each other is the only way we will ever move forward. We all struggle. We all need empathy. We all need to get real with our prejudices and be decent people on this planet. Please think critically about what you believe before you "believe" it.

Sitting outside in the gorgeous twilight
Looking out over the Columbia River
Lights coming on in the city below
62 degrees and silver-blue skies
Tomorrow will be 70 without a cloud
My sour cherry tree is puffy white
I hear frogs more than traffic
The chickens are finishing off some grasses
My dog is asleep

    Ahhhhhh spring!
