Just for Fun – Camping Tent Song

The Okee Dokee Brothers, “Campin’ Tent”.  (The Okee Dokee Brothers produce music for kids and families and one of their stated goals is to get families to enjoy the outdoors and nature more.)

Another reason why camping is not one of my favorite things:

Thoughts On William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare’s works are highly esteemed in the world.  His talent is really unquestionable.  He was a great writer.  But, is it really good, wholesome entertainment, or is there a dark side to it?
Here is an article that I compiled some time ago and recently updated.


There is some question as to who William Shakespeare really was. Some people are sure he was the actual author of the many plays and sonnets that are attributed to him. Some are just as certain that it was a ruse to hide the identity of someone else. There are probably numerous candidates for the "real William Shakespeare" though I doubt many of them know it or care about it any more.

Why Is A Wife Blamed for her Husband’s Unfaithfulness?


Here is a new article I’ve been working on at the Home Maker’s Corner.  It is rather long, but this is a subject that is of pretty high importance right now with marital unfaithfulness being such a focal point in Christian circles, especially in Christian Patriarchy.


Why Is A Wife Blamed for her Husband’s Unfaithfulness?

Proverbs 20:23 Divers weights are an abomination

The recent Duggar catastrophe that exposed Josh Duggar for having an Ashley Madison account and his subsequent "confession" has caused a lot of discussion.  Among other things, there has been speculation about whether Anna, his wife, would feel compelled to share in the blame.  This compulsion could be caused by a number of things - the teachings of Gothard on sexual sin, her own misguided conscience, her in-laws, her church fellowship, etc. 

I feel badly for Anna, but there is nothing that I personally can do for her except pray, so speculating on her state of mind and conscience is kind of pointless.  However, it seems like it would be appropriate to stop and consider how we arrived at the point where women in Christendom are so often blamed either partially or mostly for their husbands' moral failures.  How did this unjust balance in thinking come about?  Here are some reasons that came to mind.  There are probably more.

Evening Song- There’s No Disappointment In Heaven

Revelation 21:2-4  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
