WorldWide LAM Awareness Day

I have had LAM for over 12 years now. I can say I love my lungs but hate what this disease does to them.

For awhile, that distinction was hard to draw.

Now I’ve Really Seen It All…

I was surfing through my WordPress catching up on some blogs today (Tuesday).  I came across an item from Quartz that pointed to this article.

I really did go to the Bible Emoji Twitter handle to see if it was for real.  This lead me to the Apple Store.

I am not paying $2.99 but something does have me curious about an Emoji translation of the one of the Holy Books.   Will there be others after The Bible perhaps?

I’m spiritual but not religious.  (I was raised Lutheran but am UU.)  I did find this translation (what little I saw in tweets & screenshots) amusing.  I get the idea behind it & am not mad at it.

[I do have a Rainbow Study Bible I got several years ago that’s really fun to look at occasionally & if I’m searching for a particular passage or theme it definitely makes it easier to locate.]
