Listen Up

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

I will quote the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu: "The farther I go, the less I know." So, if that's true, and I think it is, I am getting progressively more stupid every day.
So why do you get so mad when I tell you that?
Stupid is the new smart.
That explains the tv.

My wife works for the state, so she can't put it out where people can see it, but it is hanging on the inside of her closet in her office, a sign that reads, "Some people are like a "Slinky"...Not really good for much but they are sure fun to watch when you push them down a flight of stairs".

As I used to leave the house on a Friday night, my mom would say, "You be careful now". My dad would say, "Don't do no messin' around out there". Most of the time he would kind of say it under his breath. He knew that I knew what he meant.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

The advice I usually give adults:
Be good or be good at it.

The advice I give my kids:
Eat your vegetables. Wash behind your ears. Don't do drugs. Don't take any wood nickles. Clean up after yourself...." I kind of just keep going until they're out of hearing.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Said to me by a dear friend and hunting buddy whose farm I hunt in Kansas after I’d missed an easy shot:
“If a man hasn’t had time to work on his shooting, he should spend some time working on his excuses.”
The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.. J.R.R. Tolkien

There is a fellow down the hall from me at work that has a picture posted on his door. The caption reads, "There are two kinds of countries. Ones that use the metric system and one that went to the moon."
