I was slightly disappointed to find out that Typealyzer analyzed my blog is an ISTP, The Mechanics. I am an INTJ, so at least two of my four letters are consistent. Typalyzer describes the ISTP as:

The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generelly prefer to think things out for
themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts.

The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.

I find that I am much more the INTJ than the ISTP, although I do like to have fun.

Book Meme

James tagged me with the book meme. He says that I am "supposed to pick up the nearest book, turn to page 123, find the fifth sentence, and post the three sentences after that."

The book is The Moral Vision of the New Testament by Richard B. Hays. Because the first two paragraphs are primarily Scripture quotations, I am posting this:
Already in Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, it is assumed that the ideals of sharing and unity of soul between friends are truisms: "All the proverbs agree with this: 'Friends have one soul between them' and 'Friends' goods are common property.'" Thus the Jerusalem community embodies in its life together the Greek vision of authentic friendship, not just between two people or within a small intimate circle but exponentially expanded into life of a community of thousands. Hostility, mistrust, and selfishness are replaced by a communal ethic of sharing that treats all members of the community as friends in accordance with the philosophical ideal.

I am supposed to tag five people, so I tag Nick, Doug Groothius, Stan, Brian, and James Gibson.

Way Cool

Today my first great niece entered the world at 12:18 p.m. She is the first of the next generation, and my brother is now a grandpa. Hildie came in at 19 inches and a whopping 9 lbs. 3 oz. What a softball player she will make.

I think she is a little extrovert. I met her when she was almost two hours old, and she had been awake the whole time. She kept looking around. When I came over and looked at her in her holding container, she smiled.

Momma and baby are fine. God is good.

Here are a few pics.
