A Thought or Two For Monday

As both ends of California burn, as President Trump adds insult to injury with ridiculous threats, and as a red flag warning continues through tonight, I felt a little uplift was needed.

Psalm 96:11-13Revised Standard Version (RSV)Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
let the field exult, and everything in it!
Then shall all the trees of the wood sing for joy
before the Lord, for he comes,
for he comes to judge the earth.

He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with his truth.
Have a safe, happy and blessed Monday! Libby

Perfect In My Imperfections.

I guess that I just have some things on my mind this week. Here they are in no particular order.
First up is the milk situation. Or, should I say "milk" situation? I read this article earlier today about a company called Miyoko's Kitchen. They are being sued over their packaging and choice of words with regard to the marketing of their "butter" products. If this kind of hair splicing is new to you give the above article a read. 
My thoughts though are this: as a consumer I am not confused too often about what I am buying, particularly if I am looking for a vegan product. Intellectually I know I am not buying butter which is made from cow's milk. I know I am buying a vegetable spread even if the packaging looks a little misleading. I am able to read and to discern, thankfully. That doesn't mean though that I don't expect the product I am buying to be kind of creamy and salty and to spread nicely on my toast. Sort of reminiscent of butter but NOT BUTTER…
