Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Every month or so . . . comes the nagging thought that, yes, I should work toward some consistency in the presentation of blogs - so here's the start.
The time-frames in the title fall out like this - Yesterday - the six-month dental checkup brought the news that all was O.K. with the exception of the two crowns needed. Hmmmm. . . Let's try Today - Cardio at the new 10:00 time works out well; finally mailed a friend's books in his direction; on the search for wood putty (and found it); State of the Union presentation tonight; still very hard to connect with this man. Here we are at Tomorrow - lunch with other retired teachers at the Outside Inn, shop for $1 boxes of Blueberries, pick up meds -expectedly.
The writer of the book of Hebrews uses a similar time-frame, but adds a lot of tomorrows as he/she comments "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."(NIV) as the changelessness of Christ is reviewed once more. It's unlikely the activities of the writer would have borne much similarity to my outline, but we both deal with Yesterdays, Todays and Tomorrows. For that I'm grateful.

Those who follow you (in many ways) are always glad to see another missive. And are glad when there is good news (and Good News) in said scribblings.

I'm with you on the disconnect with El Presidente. There's something distant and calculated about him, in addition to his alternate world views.

I almost read that you were going to buy fifty-one boxes of blueberries. While I applaud the abundance of anti-oxidants that it would provide, I fear there may be other repercussions (not the least of which might be from an unnamed spouse who would not be pleased at being presented with the need for so many different recipes).

And your question on the gender of the writer of Hebrews is a bit like the question of the validity of the Book from which it comes. It is or it isn't true - there's no middle ground. Thank you again for showing me The Way.
