The other day, while watching Kentucky Derby coverage, I saw the short form of the following commercial (caution: bleeped language)…
As I was laughing, I was told that there was a long form version and I immediately went to take a look. I wonder how I would react under those circumstances?
Wait. I know how I would react. I react every day in a similar way. To life. Continue reading
My daughter yawned sleepily as she started her day. As she began to gain consciousness, a big smile exploded on her face.
“I love Mondays!” she exclaimed.
“Why do you love Mondays?” I asked with genuine curiosity. Continue reading
I know, I know. I said I was gonna post my thoughts about the crowds that cheered and jeered Christ. I have it drafted, and I’ll still post it. Just gotta work out some of the kinks. Got some other things in the hopper that I wanna post first.
An often used phrase this time of year goes something like this…
The same people who proclaimed “Hosanna” on Palm Sunday would later cry “Crucify Him” at Christ’s crucifixion.
I love the variety of information that I glean from the various RSS feeds to which I am subscribed. On Monday, I read two very different takes on the crowds which cheered Jesus and the crowds which jeered Jesus and called for His execution. I would encourage you to read both posts, as they approach the issue from two very different angles.
I have heard and used the above phrase for as long as I can remember. Honestly, I never really thought about its validity. In these days before Easter, I intend to study this topic, and will post my thoughts later this week.
As you read and study, feel free to try to persuade my upcoming post! What’s your take? Same or different crowd? Why?
What a great day at church! Our children’s ministry did a wonderful job on their Easter musical. Lyd had a solo on You Are My King, and Tony held the cross as two other boys knelt (I had seen it multiple times before and it still gripped me).
Also, today was Lyd’s first communion as a believer in Christ, and it was my first day back behind the keyboard at LBT. And full altars are always a good thing.
How was your Palm Sunday?
This past weekend, I got to experience two firsts…
1. I got to officiate my first wedding.
2. I got to attend a Korean worship service.
These events happened concurrently. Continue reading
There is a guy where I work named Raymond. If there are any of my co-workers reading this, you already know about whom I am writing.
Raymond cleans up our office. He’s there every single day, and does a great job. I only know him casually, but there is something about him that makes him stand out.
He knows names. Continue reading
That’s right. I didn’t watch the State of Union last night.
Does that make me a bad American? Not really. Does that make me a good Christian? Not really.
I just know how I react to things like that. And, quite frankly, I don’t need that kind of stress in my life.
I am sure I’ll hear all about it today in the news and on social media. So, I won’t really miss anything. And watching Hulu Plus was a lot more fun.
Did you watch? Did you keep your testimony, Christians?
Lyddie: “Is God tall?”
Me: “I don’t know about tall. He’s big.”
Lyddie: “God, thank You for being big… Who made God?”
Me: “No one. He’s always been.”
