Now That's Cool

I'm waiting for the NLT Study Bible to come out. Poking around the internet, I checked out their web site. This is really impressive. With the purchase of the NLTSB you get access to it online. I am quite fond of electronic editions for lesson preparation. This means I will not have to buy the electronic edition. Thanks a bunch NLTSB and Tyndale!

It is hopeless. I broke my book buying restriction by buying more books than I am allotted for the amount of books I have read. To be honest, I'm not going on that strong of a restriction again. It was too much pressure. Going into bookstores was a lot of pressure. Sometimes it almost caused a headache, and I'm not prone to headaches.

Anyway, here are today's purchases:

Apostolic Fathers Volume 1 and Apostolic Fathers Volume 2 in the Loeb Classical Library edited and translated by Bart D. Ehrman

The Surprising Work of God by Garth M. Rosell

A Woman's Place, House Churches in Earliest Christianity by Carolyn Osiek, Margaret Y. MacDonald with Janet H. Tulloch

IVocab Greek which does not qualify as a book.

Oh yes, and last week I bought:

Who We Are is How We Pray, Matching Personality and Spirituality by Charles J. Keating

I Might Be a Bad Christian

I might be a bad Christian, because today I saw "Tropic Thunder." funny. Yes, it is full of violence and profanity...that is the reason for the R-rating. I do not believe there was any sexual activity or nudity.

Robert Downey Jr. was awesome. I'm chuckling as I write. Ben Stiller was also great. He is so goofy. Tom Cruise has a small role, and you will be shocked at how funny he is. That's funny "ha ha" not funny as in Scientology. Even Nick Nolte was funny.

The soundtrack is a must have also.

The movie is too great to go into details. I don't want to ruin it for you. And, I even saw it at the Alamo Drafthouse. If you don't have a Drafthouse in your city, you may want to consider moving to a city where there is one. Uprooting your family for a movie theater is not too extreme, is it?

Funny Inspiration

This is one of those cute chain emails, and it was too cute not to share.

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment

If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct her/him,

If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without liquor,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,


You Are Probably The Family Dog!
Of course, I think it should be a cat.
