At Doug’s funeral, yesterday, we heard a lot about golf, which was Doug’s favorite pastime. Doug’s sons praised him for the amount of time he was willing to spend with them, but a lot was said about the time he spent playing golf. Death puts things in perspective, so I wondered what the total of Doug’s golf scores amounted to now. The same thing can be said about almost every human activity.

The phrase at the conclusion of the Lord’s prayer, “for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever,” reminds me that temporal success is like building sand castles on the beach. Real progress lies elsewhere.

I am grateful for some perspective.

After two or more days of frustration, today was one of progress. I connected Visual Builder to my always free database, created five applications, initialized Developer Cloud Service and saved all the applications to github.

75 and still alive.

Not just grateful, but grateful to God.

Ford v Ferrari

Filed under: daily — Lawrence Peterson @ 11:28 pm

Saw the movie tonight. Hard to see a moral in that story. Too many villains. Not enough purpose.

Still struggling with program. One of these day there will be a breakthrough.

Grateful for my conviction that the world’s story will end with a reckoning and justice for all.

Day Two

Filed under: daily — Lawrence Peterson @ 7:58 am

Almost no progress on my program yesterday but I am grateful that after a day of struggles, some progress was made at the end and the way seems clear to moving forward today.

Grateful for a beautiful wife.

Happy I can work today. Who wants to retire anyway?

Gratitude Diaries

Filed under: daily — Lawrence Peterson @ 9:27 am

Reading Gratitude Diaries by Janice Kaplan and it has convinced me to start my own journal.

Doug Simpson had a stroke and died Saturday, so I am the last survivor of Peterson and Simpson and just grateful to be alive.

Mitt Romney voted to convict Donald Trump last week so I am grateful that there are still a few in the world who act upon their principles.

I am very proud of all my children and grandchildren.
