More Stream of Consciousness Observations

Busy week. Lots of stuff going on. We'd appriciate your prayers.
All I have time for this week is a list of stream of consciousness observations on life in general:

  • I think my daughter grows and inch taller, her hair gets an inch longer, and she gets a lot smarter every time I blink. (I'm trying to blink less)
  • Every day I become more and more aware of how "out of my league" my wife is, and every day I thank God that she doesn't seem to be aware of this obvious fact.
  • I wonder if it's a bad thing that lately I've been getting most of my news from the Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and Relevant Magazine's Slices.
  • The fact that Derek Webb doesn't get more airplay on Christian radio speaks volumes about the Christian subculture.
  • Why do I even have a home phone number anymore?
  • Isn't it amazing that so many preachers on T.V. can somehow make the message of Jesus, the homeless Son of God who wouldn't stop talking about how God was with the poor, into a message of how you can be healthy, wealthy, and popular?
  • What would happen if the church stopped worrying so much about making sure that people know that we're "right", and started pouring our energy into being good to the world we've alienated?
  • Would Jesus be allowed to speak at your church? Would he be invited back?
  • Does everyone have trouble finding the time to mow their grass?
  • What do they put in diet drinks that makes them so addictive? I mean seriously...it tastes terrible, but I crave the stuff.
  • One day I hope my daughter looks back and remembers that her Dad loved Jesus, her Dad loved her Mom, and her Dad loved her...that he always tried to keep his word to her...and that he gave every part of his life to something he believed in.
