Along The Way (10/Sept/05)

We just finished the music rehearsal for tomorrow morning. Being that tomorrow is 9/11 and that our country is still reeling from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina I feel like tomorrow's topic - The Character of God - is timely. When the rehearsal finished we played on for a half hour or so, just enjoying the presence of the Lord together. What a privilege to have been here. Thank you Lord!

Katie got a hampster last night. I remember promising myself that as a dad I would never see a rodent in my home that didn't meet his end in a trap! What was I thinking? The great news is that Katie is thrilled. The bad news is that her sisters are all jealous. I'm in trouble.

I have a few things to finish off preparations for tomorrow's services and the baptism at the lake. I better get to it... and then get home to play with the rat... I mean hampster.

  • Rat, hamster, what's the difference? After all, we DO live in New Hampster.

    You can always do what I do when one of my kids says, "How come so-and-so got such-and-such? That's not FAAAAAYYYYAAAAIRRRRR!"

    "Honey, they got something that you didn't because, frankly, I love them better than you."

    Shut's 'em right up!

    Ok, yes, I'll pay the bill later in years of therapy, but I'll take the silence now.

  • Thanks for the parental advice. I may put it to use. I know some good therapists - maybe I can get us a cut-rate deal.

    This rodent has this really cool house - built in exercise equipment, tubes, chutes and landings, no-drip water bottle... how come they don't have houses like this for humans?
