FRIENDS ON THE BLOGROLL

My Blog-roll has turned into a grown-up version of Myspace…the networking abounds.  If you haven’t checked it out lately, you might want to.  I’ve added many people in the last week…Brian Howard, Tim & Chie Burns, The Murrays, The Crotts, The DeSotos, Abby Lange (she’s married now)…I didn’t hyper link, cuz…well, check the blogroll!
If you have a blog…let me know…

ODE TO PEROXIDE

Well, I finished my very first bottle of hydrogen peroxide..for oral hygiene.  Feedback=the one day I went without it, my mouth felt unacceptable…like ‘sweaters on my teeth’ as Holly would say.  So, for a veritable cornucopia of reasons, peroxide is my new proven favorite tool…I wonder if it would make Oprah’s favorites…’Look under your seats-you all are receiving a 32 oz. bottle of peroxide’…the crowd’s high pitched squeal ensues and then it cuts to commercial…

GOODBYE TO THE HAGENS & HAPPY EARLY B-DAY TO KERRY

God is kind…He’s allowed me to know and share in life with outstanding people.  As life progresses and friends follow Him where He leads, it means there are lots of goodbyes in life.  Last night 8/29/06 around 6pm, in a huge U-haul with all the kids in tow, the Hagens drove off to San Diego to start a new chapter in their lives.  I have had the privilege of sharing much of the last 10 years or so coming in and out of each other’s lives and am bummed that they won’t be ‘in the area’ for a chance meeting at Peets or a BBQ at the park or a church service (either COC or CCC).  But, I am incredibly excited for what God has in store for them…because I know they will seek and find it!  If you think of it, please pray for them.

DID YOU MISS THE DVD FROM UGANDA DISCOVERY NIGHT?

Adam has outdone himself and made the 8:33 minute DVD of their Uganda trip available for viewing on his blog (click here) !!!!
This is the same DVD that was shown at Discovery Night.  Good Job AP!

MINUTE TO MINUTE

Pete HuttlingerYou just never know what life will bring…from joy to sadness and back again. I was JUST about to write a post on how great the Discovery Night went last night at Church of the Canyons when I received an email from my aunt that our cousin Pete collapsed during a gig last night and is in the hospital for his heart. You just never know what life will bring from one minute to the next minute. I may or may not know you, but if you’re a sincere pray-er, will you please pray for Pete? And will you Praise God for the 100+ turnout at Discovery night?

Thanx

THIS ONE’S FOR TODD BOLEN

So, I was reading Todd’s Blog and thought , “These you’ve been tagged things are rarely interesting, However, once again, Todd defies the norm”. I read his answers with great interest and agreement. So, you can imagine my great surprise and honor when Todd wanted to hear mine…in the company of giants like EWZ and Gunner (and 2 guys other that I don’t know). So, while I usually ignore these requests, there are only a few people for whom I’d cave…this one’s for you Todd, because I respect you immensely!

1. One book that changed your life:  The Minister As Shepherd by Charles Jefferson and Spiritual depression by Martin Lloyd jones

2. One book that you’ve read more than once: Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis

3. One book you’d want on a desert island: I’ve never heard of this, but I agree with Todd ‘C.S. Lewis, Essay Collection and Other Short Pieces (hard to find!, but some used here)’…my answer would be ‘anything by C.S.Lewis’

4. One book that made you laugh: Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller

5. One book that made you cry: A Severe Mercy, by Sheldon Vanauken

6. One book you wish had been written: The Life of Christ, by Douglas Bookman, True Women’s Ministry by by Betty Price, The Memoirs of a Top Producing Agent by Sonja Lindvall

7. One book you wish had never been written: The Book of Mormon

8. One book you’re currently reading: Seeing With New Eyes by David Powilson

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read:  God in the Shadows: Evil in God’s World by Brian Morley

WHAT MADE JESUS LAUGH?

Seriously.  I’m pretty sure humor has been around since the beginning (the one that had no beginning and has no end).  The trinity has perfect communion within itself, does it involve humor?  I bet Adam laughed at certain animals as he was naming them…hello, a platypus?  Moses probably had a few chuckles at the ridiculousness of wandering…for 40 years!  Paul was pretty sarcastic at times.  But what might have made the Son of God laugh?  C.W. Smith used to say, ‘Where the Bible does not stipulate, we dare not Read the rest of this entry »
