  1. https://www.etymonline.com/word/condescend condescend (v.) mid-14c., of God, a king., etc., "make gracious allowance" for human frailty, etc.; late 14c., "yield deferentially," from Old French condescendere (14c.) "to agree, consent, give in, yield, come down from one's rights or claims," and directly from Late Latin condescendere "to let oneself down, stoop," in Medieval Latin "be complaisant or compliant," from assimilated form of Latin com "with, together" (see con-) + descendere "to descend," literally "climb down," from de "down" (see de-) + scandere "to climb," from PIE root *s
  2. Thank you, God. And thank you, Rebecca, for the update.
  3. I guess I meant the people who own the company.
  4. Praying for both of you and all the others who know and love this wonderful cat.
  5. They claim quite a few books and authors. Perhaps contact some of they authors and find out their reaction. I noticed a couple of series, which could be legit or might be "owners."
  6. Yes, that and 2,000 years difference in culture and a couple dozen other factors do make a difference. Like the word "condescend," which appears in a hymn (which title I cannot come up with at the moment). The phrase is "to us he'll condescend." "con-" as a prefix meaning "with." "descend" as in to come down. Current English meaning of "condescend" is not the same.
  7. Please do. This site has cat lovers as well as writers.
  8. Thank you, Carol, for this. I didn't know that, and I suspect many others did not as well.
  9. Luke 4:18-19: The Spirit of Our God is upon me: because the Most High has anointed me to bring Good News to those who are poor. God has sent me to proclaim liberty to those held captive, recovery of sight to those who are blind, and release to those in prison-- to proclaim the year of Our God's favor. Will doing those things get Christians in trouble with those who benefit from the status quo? With those who have no compassion for the poor? With those who make money on oppressing their workers? With those who cannot see beyond their own tiny selves? Wi
  10. Glad he is no longer missing. Praying that he will feel better. If he is not eating or drinking, it might be a good idea to take him to the vet. Some kind of digestive blockage? Kidney problems?
  11. Just wondering whose interpretation of their feelings for Prince Philip. How would the Vanuatu tribes describe what they feel? Would someone from a completely different culture say that we "revere George Washington as a god?"
  12. This is how a language grows--people take existing words and create new forms of them. That's a great word! Praying for you and yours.
  13. Hurrah for companies that provide health insurance!!!
