"Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" Matthew 5:10.  This verse reflects the "Ben Hur" movie we saw at the Plains Theatre this week-end.  It was brutal and yet tender in places as the story line was at the time of Jesus' crucifixion.

Parking Spaces.  Defined by someone on the internet as " a space where automobiles can be parked."   In a parking lot.  In Pueblo.  At Walmart.  I find myself  parking there quite frequently.  Any time I feel the need for a really good challenge, I go park there.
