It Is Well With My Soul

It Is Well With My Soul is one of my favorite hymns. A special version was when at the close of Rich Mullin's concerts he had his audience sing a cappella with him. After we sang he spoke about how he loved hymns and he exhorted his audience, "If you want to be entertained go to a concert, but better is to go be part of a church and sing the hymns..." (Paraphrase there.) His point was to encourage meeting with the church and not to substitute entertainment (concerts etc.) for meeting with the church!

Okay after all that about Rich Mullins, here is a YouTube video of Jars of Clay doing a nice version of "It is Well with My Soul".

I was speaking of “Stink Pink”. When we were building Main Street house, a man named Bob was working with Mike and taught us the game. We put in some long hours and this was one of the pastimes as we worked! The rule is to give a hint that describes two rhyming words. If the words have one syllable, you say “It’s a “Stink Pink“. Two syllables- “Stinky Pinky” Three syllables- Stinkity Pinkity” and so on! An example of a “Stink Pink” is: A Large Feline. (A. Fat Cat) An example of a “Stinky Pinky” is: A Comic Cottontail. (A. Funny Bunny) A “Stinkity Pinkity” hint is: Okay, I’ve drawn a blank! Could someone come up with a three syllable “Stinkity Pinkity”? So you get the idea. The words…

Here's the Thing

Fried butterfly shrimp takes turkey's place on our Thanksgiving table. This is some kind of confession,
but it's not an apology. If shrimp would ever take turkey's place at Thanksgiving tables across America, what kind of decorations would kids make?
