It snowed very heavily last week, as if someone were trying to make up for the lack of winter in the past couple of years. I hate snow.

Pilate went outside again and said to the people “I am going to bring him out to you now, but understand clearly that I find him not guilty” Then Jesus came out wearing the crown of thornes and the purple robe. And Pilote said, “Here is the man!”

When they saw him, the leading priest aand Temple guardsbegan shouting “Crucify! Crucify!”

“You crucify him,” Pilote said. “I find him not guilty.”

John 19: 4-7

“All these people we have mentioned received God’s approval because of their faith, yet none of them received all that God had promised. For God had far better things in mind for us that would also benefit them, for they can’t receive the prize at the end of the race until we finish the race.”

~ Hebrews 11: 39-40

It’s National Write month. I don’t intend on participating because that’s January for me.

I’m actually a bit embarrassed to make these post. To be honest I feel like the stuff if common knowledge, especially if it’s something I’ve known about for a while. I always feel like I was late to the party when I learn something new. But I do like to try and frame things in different context. This week’s theme is Change.

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again.
There is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which one can say,
“Look! This is something new”?
It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time.

I wrote this so far ahead of time and yet I’m still posting it really late. It’s Halloween so I guess that works just as well. Even though it’s Halloween, I really think December is the best month for horror related media.

For the wise person sees, while the fool is blind. Yet I saw that wise and foolish people share the same fate. Both of them die. Just as the fool will die, so will I. So of what value is my wisdom? Then I said to myself, “This is all so meaningless!” For the wise and the fools both die, and in the days to come, both will be forgotten.

Ecclesiastes 2: 14-16
