About Sonja Roberts Dalglish

I love people, math, physics, and theology. I love mysteries which may explain the list above. I am a polio survivor, having had the disease in August 1954. The vaccine was declared safe in April 1955. I am very pro vaccines. They have increased the health and well being of the world. Presently, I am living just west of Corpus Christi, in Kingsville.

We are already hot and dry and getting hotter and dryer. The cattlemen and women are having to graze fewer livestock these days.

Redirecting

I am directionally challenged.  I get lost easily and even have trouble in knowing which way to turn when I get off elevators.  I am very grateful for the new technology that gives us mapping programs.  My phone uses these … Continue reading

What Comforts You?

There are times in life when we need comfort, just as the disciples did after the death of Jesus.  His death shook their world.  They seem to be huddling together in the upper room, afraid to be seen, afraid of … Continue reading

Why do you wear a cross, if you do?

We have passed through Easter and heard the good news:  Christ is risen!  He is risen indeed!   Death has been defeated!  The cross is empty which has gotten me thinking about crosses. My mother collected crosses and had several favorites … Continue reading
