We have all heard the phrase "Cleanliness is next to godliness".  While there's nothing intrinsically wrong with the notion, in spite of mentioning God the phrase doesn't have a Biblical basis...or does it?  

God and Satan are both orderly and chaotic imaginings of the principle that governs the universe. God being the perceived principle of Order for the universe, and Satan being the Chaos principle. They may be orderly and chaotic reflections of each other, but that might just be missing the point. The principle of God is the principle of Order, in which the universe is governed by God, as an organized matrix in which the individual has no freedom to create his/her own structure and must conform to that of God, or the universe. This principle implies obedience and subservience to a higher power as the highest ideals yet these principles need to be applied to our earthly life.  The principle of Satan is the principle of Chaos, in which the individual is free to create one’s own structure and rules based on the raw material of the universe, and it is possible for the individual to have one’s own will and power, thus there is no order besides one’s own, and nothing rules the universe. This principle implies freedom and personal power...but is a dangerous lie.

1 Corinthians 14:40 Let all things be done decently and in order.

Now that it is finally warming up again, I am getting ready for the next organizational assault.  This time it is the contents of two shipping containers filled with stuff that has been "put aside".  Just so happens True Value up in Alpine has a sale going on this month so I stocked up on 11 plastic bins to sort stuff into that isn't going to the landfill.  Depending on my culling abilities, I may need more.  When I was checking out I asked the cashier if these were guaranteed to change my life.  She said,"That's pretty much up to you."  42,56,28,0,C

one more cold night...

When you get used to over 300 sunny days per year, a few cold cloudy ones in a row is a real drag (but still nothing like months of freezing in upstate NY).  Looks like things are about to change...Chupa saw his shadow this afternoon.  38,42,28,0,B
