Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

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

We just saw a hawk catch a redwing blackbird in mid-air and fly away with it in its talons.

I'm in the middle of updating my resume.
I always feel awkward doing so.
I remember my first resume update...

This really ought to be something we do as a periodic "thing" - consider it like you would changing out the smoke detector batteries at the time changes (whether your region changes or not).

Remember - your CV/Resume celebrates you, your accomplishments, and your professional capabilities in it's own fashion. Be generous to yourself, but be centered.

I had to drop something off at Scouts this evening. The weather is so beautiful I could have spent hours just driving around with the windows rolled down listening to Mark Levin on the radio,

I really like the Jesus Prayer. . . .
Fail. Great prayer. I love the idea of praying it constantly.
I have a BA with a minor in Biblical and Theological Studies and a Master of Divinity ... and I have never heard of this prayer. Wow.
This is it?: Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
It's an Eastern thing. That being said, anyone remotely Christian should embrace its content.
I pray the Jesus prayer:

- As a centering prayer when I'm trying to quite my mind. Too often I find the monkeys in my banana tree distract me during extended time of prayer so I repeat the Jesus prayer each time I find myself going someplace else.

Friday I'm subbing for a Religion class.
The sub who was originally scheduled dropped a weight on her face.

Oh. That had to hurt. Hopefully it hit her on the flat side to distribute the load a little.

I have no other details other than it did break her nose and she's not up for subbing.
