My blog is back!

Hey!  My blog is fixed!  I really missed it.  Sure, I can tweet stuff.  But it’s can’t accomplish the longer thoughts like blogging can.  Which is an interesting possible discussion.  How has Twitter redefined blogging?  Intriguing. Anyhow, thanks, Jon!!!

Hot

We have been experiencing a string of a/c failures in my house.  Being in a hot house is no fun.  And we’ve paid $800 thus far and it’s still not completely fixed.  Very frustrating and draining.  It hits you right on that lowest tear of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.  Yep, shelter.

New covenant holiness

I’ve been contemplating holiness today.  And I’ve really been thinking about that in terms of being “in the world but not of the world”.  And I found myself wondering where that saying comes from Jesus’s famous prayer to the Father in John 17 (Message): 13-19Now I’m returning to you.

Dependence day again

Tomorrow is the 4th of July.  And I want to wish my fellow Americans a happy independence day.  But each year I’ve come to think of it also as dependence day.  A reminder to be dependent upon God.  To yield and surrender to God and His will and direction and purpose of my life.  It […]
