Helping

When I was a kid, Marlo Thomas and friends created a project called Free To Be You & Me

I cannot tell you how many times I listened to that wonderful album, but today I still have those songs run through my head at random times.  Some tracks are silly and some are poignant, but the song that is running through my head today is “Helping” which was sung by Tom Smothers.

Lately there has been a lot of discussion about hate and flaming on the internet. Yesterday it was the hot topic over at The Women’s Colony.  Melanie wrote Ten Tips For Making Friends and Influencing People which really resonated with me, especially as I wrestle with who I am and how I come across to others …particularly when I want to talk about faith.

“Some kind of help is the kind of help that helping’s all about
And some kind of help is the kind of help we all can do without!”

from the song “Helping”

Please discuss.

Sanctuary Blue

Jodi Anderson, who posts regularly over at The Women’s Colony, has issued another photo challenge: the color BLUE.
(Last week’s challenge was all about Orange.)
Of course, I jumped at the chance!  This is not the same as my previous blue post, since those pics were all from Google Images.  Today’s pictures are all my own:
