Everything That’s On My Mind (Almost) - August 29, 2012

  1. I was being “aggressive” when I planned for seventy Porterbrook Kansas students. Apparently God was being more aggressive by sending eighty-six.
  2. Day 17 of the Great Siding Siege of 2012. I had no idea it would take this long to change the external color of my house.
  3. This weekend is my third and final fantasy football draft. I think I have a good shot at winning at least one league.
  4. I don’t have writers block lately — just lots of things going on that keep me from writing.
  5. I have been working out a proposal in my head (and my Moleskine) for a potential book on the forgotten tool in our missional tool belt.
  6. I think I disappointed a few people because I didn’t share my bacon chocolate-chip cookie recipe. You have to remember I didn’t go to kindergarten so sharing and coloring are two extremely hard things for me.
  7. The Old Farmer’s Almanac is freaky. What mad science they concocted to be so accurate is beyond me.
  8. Nebraska should be called North Kansas. It’s just as flat and just as windy. With more corn.
  9. My favorite saying of Ethan’s right now: “I SEE KEEPER! THERE’S MY KEEPER! HI KEEPER!”
  10. I ran down a foul ball for Allison at the baseball game the other night. It wasn’t until after I got it that I realized I probably looked pretty stupid chasing a grown man asking for a ball. She’s worth it!
  11. We’re almost to the end of season 1 of LOST. I think I’m going to force Steph to wait one month before we start a new season.
  12. I can’t wait to preach about Jesus this Sunday!
