Volume of Knowledge vs. Volume of Words

Oooooh! It’s hard to see yourself in such a quote, isn’t it? But so good too–helps me in my continual goal of speaking LESS. Courtesy of Pastor JollyBlogger: “Long experience has taught me this about the status of mankind with regard to matters requiring thought: the less people know and understand about them, the more positively they attempt to argue …

Holding Pattern

Yesterday I felt as though I were in a holding pattern all day long. I teetered between diligence with my duties and complete slackerhood — and ended up, as usual, somewhere in between. Towards the end of the afternoon, I did figure out one portion of my sense of being on the edge of something … Wednesday morning, we go …

Tempted to Morbid Introspection — But INSTEAD …

This morning when I woke up, my first thoughts were DARK: 1. I kept thinking of the mean words that an atheist wrote in a comment to our little “Books of the Bible” video: I felt badly for him (what kind of person trolls around YouTube looking for Christian videos just so he can write mean words?). Plus, just the …

Truman and Hume (HT: Somber and Dull)

I couldn’t resist popping over to a blog named “Somber and Dull” when TulipGirl referenced it in a post. I’m glad I did! I’ll definitely give it some time in my “provisional blog reading” favorites and see if it lands in my (not too long) list of blogs I read regularly. These two posts on President Truman and a man …

To Do Lists are Never Done

How fun to read C.J. Mahanney’s blog this morning (The To-Do Lists Are Never Done) because Sophia Grace and I were JUST talking about this fact yesterday when we made her little to-do list for the day (and one checkbox was left un-checked at the close of the day): Now if I could only listen to my own counsel, eh!? …

Consistently Attracting the Irreligious?

TulipGirl quoted Tim Keller’s “The Prodigal God” today and it has me thinking, oh, about a zillion thoughts as I sit here playing/working with Sophia: ‘Jesus’s teaching consistently attracted the irreligious while offending the Bible-believing, religious people of his day. However, in the main, our churches today do not have this effect. The kind of outsiders Jesus attracted are not …

Quiet day at home …

We decided NOT to go and see the opera “Carmen” this morning because we had a BIG spring snowstorm come through. Remember the front porch where I took Soph’s Easter dress picture? This was the change in only a few HOURS: Montana weather is so strange! Our tulips and daffodils are quite rugged to pull through these spring snows. Oh …
