Everything That’s On My Mind (Almost) – August 8, 2012

  1. Byword is quickly replacing my standard writing application. Simple. Focused. Better.
  2. My family is literally scattered all over the country today. Girls in California, son in Missouri. I missed the tornado and am stuck in Kansas.
  3. Was reminded of how much I like C.S. Lewis’ The Great Divorce. I’m reading it again.
  4. I’m learning that people who are critical of John Calvin’s views of God’s providence haven’t read John Calvin.
  5. I can’t figure out what this show “Olympics” is all about. Until it shows up on Netflix I won’t be able to talk about it.
  6. I drove through Lawrence, KS yesterday. Do KU students loathe themselves so much that they feel the need to boast about their championship debate team?
  7. Cold front blowing through Wichita. It’s only supposed to be 101º today.
  8. I’m baking my award-winning bacon chocolate chip cookies this week.
  9. It’s humbling to apologize to a 5-year-old.
  10. That boycott of Chick-fil-a isn’t going too well. A new one opens in Wichita tomorrow.
  11. It’s sad to me that youth, beauty and energy are more valued in our culture than age, wisdom and patience.
  12. I can’t wait to preach John 21 in September. So much gospel-goodness in that chapter.
  13. I’m grateful for my readers. Thanks for making my ramblings part of your day.
