Listening: ‘She is Love’ by Parachute

Reading: ‘Surprised By Hope’ by N. T. Wright

Feeling Guilty: For having a donut for lunch. Somehow I doubt that is on the list of good foods to eat.

Thinking: I will make my way back. Someday.

How to Annoy Me: Drive 10 miles under the speed limit, don’t pay attention at stop lights, and swerve all over the road while obviously looking for something in the passenger seat. Pull the SUV over and find whatever it is, DOCTOR, before I call the cops on your ass.

How to Charm Me: Call me and invite me to the state fair so we can finally indulge in our elephant ear craving.

Quote of the Day: What we say about death and resurrection gives shape and color to everything else. If we are not careful, we will offer merely a “hope” that is no longer a surprise, no longer able to transform lives and communitites in the present, no longer generated by the resurrection of Jesus himself and looking forward to the promised new heavens and new earth. – N. T. Wright

Listening: ‘Murder She Wrote’ by Chaka Demus and Pliers (Have I mentioned the eclecticness that is my taste in music? I blame Derek from Firm 57 for this one!)

Reading: “You’re supposed to be the leading lady in your own life, not the best friend.”

Thinking: Why is it if you want to be tan, you have two options: skin cancer or reeking like your brother’s shoes after a 2 hour basketball game on a summer day?

Feeling Guilty: For apparently being the one to teach Mikayla bad words…

How to Annoy Me: Put 3 of those “security enabled device inside” stickers on my DVD case. BECAUSE ONE OBVIOUSLY ISN’T ENOUGH!!!!!

How to Charm Me: Have skinny dipping on your list of things to do.

Quote of the Day: How unutterably sweet is the knowledge that our Heavenly Father knows us completely. No talebearer can inform on us; no enemy can make an accusation stick; no forgotten skeleton can come tumbling out of some hidden closet to abash us and expose our past; no unsuspected weakness in our characters can come to light to turn God away from us, since He knew us utterly before we knew him and called us to Himself in the full knowledge of everything that was against us. – A. W. Tozer

Quote of the Day: When we see ourselves in the light of Jesus’s type of kingdom, and realize the extent to which we have been living by a different code altogether, we realize, perhaps for the first time, how far we have fallen short of what we were made to be. This realization is what we call “repentance”, a serious turning away from patterns of life which deface and distort our genuine humanness. It isn’t just a matter of feeling sorry for particular failing, though that will often be truse as well. It is the recognition that the living God has made us humans to reflect his image into his world, and that we haven’t done so….Once again, the gospel itself, the very message which announce that Jesus is Lord and calls us to obedience, contains the remedy: forgiveness, unearned and freely given, because of his cross. All we can say is, “Thank you.” – N. T. Wright, ‘Simply Christian’ (Empahsis mine)

How to Annoy Me: Refuse to communicate with me.

How to Charm Me: Fix my computer so it finally, finally, finally stops making that horrendous noise!

Quote of the Day: Poverty is freedom. It is freedom so that what I possess doesn’t own me, so that what I possess doesn’t hold me down, so that my possessions don’t keep me from sharing or giving of myself. – Mother Teresa
