Here's the Thing: Witch Craft?

Two things actually. First thing: My wife has been wanting me to contribute to her blog for some time now. I am going to start doing so here and there. This being my first contribution, I thought I would do something short and... er... well... short!

Thing two: Am I being over the top or does anyone else think that Hobby Lobby, a Christian business that supposedly follows Christian principles, earns its keep by preying on people’s personal dissatisfaction and covetousness as they shop for next year's garage sale items?
I mean, I overheard a customer ask a clerk where the craft aisle was, to which the clerk responded, “Witch craft?”
(Okay. I made that part up.)

Mike has his own blog, but he hasn't written a thing over there! Hopefully he'll continue to contribute here now and then.
He'll give me his hand written rough draft and say, "Here it is. Now you fix-up!" I'm not an expert editor. I rely on grace.

A blogging duo--great concept.

"Witch craft". Kansas humor. Very clever. OH, and I have thought the very thing in Hooby Lobby (AND, to be fair, in Home Depo): "This is next year's yard sale item. They just call it CLEARANCE and sell it for more."

Wanna Play “Stink Pink”?

Are you familiar with the game? I hadn’t heard of it until several years ago when we were building a house on Main Street. It was the house we were going to live in for the rest of our lives and the house my Dad helped in so many ways including laying 2,600 sq. ft. of slate tile, but that’s another story. 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…

My little Mama

Johnny and "Bubbles"
My little Mama My birth-giving Mama You go before me Braver frailty leading on And I wonder at being knit together in your womb At loving hands attending my helplessness And you laboring at leaving Laboring at dying Not knowing how because you have always lived Full and free My lovely Mama  I love you always

My Mama went to be with the Lord on February 9, 2011 She was able to be at home when she died. I am blessed to have been beside her with Mike and Dad at her passing and to have seen her trust her soul to the Lord.

Maverick Molecules?

Here is the quote by R.C. Sproul that I was looking for. It is from the book CHOSEN BY GOD."For if there is one maverick molecule, it would mean that God is not sovereign. If God is not sovereign, then God is not God." and "If there is any element of the universe that is outside of his authority, then he no longer is God over all. In other words, sovereignty belongs to deity. Sovereignty is a natural attribute of the Creator. God owns what he makes, and he rules what he owns."
