All Seems to Be Well

Those of you who have tried to visit here over the last two days found some unpleasant warnings from Google. I have, with Blogger's help, managed to fix the problem. So the coast is clear.
It seems the malware was embedded in one of the sites I was following either on my bloglist or my Catholic Links list. I have removed both of those gadgets. That seemed to do the trick. Since I do like the benefit of allowing other vistors to visit the blogs I follow, I will try rebuilding that gadget with your blogs. If the warning comes back, I guess it will have to be removed permanently~we'll see.
Some of this was brought on by my own naivete and laziness. Here are a few things you may want to do to beef up the security of your own blogs (if you don't already do them.)

1. Change your password every so often.

2. If using Google Chrome, do not leave your Dashboard or e-mail open via a bookmark on the toolbar.

3. Sign out of e-mail and Google account at the end of each session.

Thanks for your patience in this. Hope you come back to visit soon.

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
