random stuff

well here it is on saturday evening. shanna's sister alaina has been visiting this week and right now the two of them are watching some chick flick that's absolutely boring me to death...something about a king of england and two sisters...and a whole lot of depressing orchestral music. all i can say...thank goodness for jack bauer and 24...
some random happenings and thoughts from this week:
1) stole an idea from a friend (i would link to his blog here, but he's yet to get with the times) and used it at youth group on thursday night - we asked the teens which race is more important - obama vs. mccain or kobe vs. garnett...no doubt the nba finals came out on top of that poll. personally, i would rather stay up all night listening to political analysts talk about the electoral college than watch 7 games of pro basketball...but i'm trying...
2) had to put gas in the car this morning before the day's events, and tragically ended up spending shanna's entire shoe budget for the rest of the year.
3) discovered that a really good way to break in a new bible is to accidentally leave it out in the pouring rain...then just hang it on a clothesline to dry...a few hours later and the new, crisp feeling is gone.
4) shanna and i have successfully gone over 3 years on only one car...and are quickly finding that those days will need to come to an end soon. but...i'm a little nervous because i'm not the best at keeping one up! currently our a/c is busted, the horn has been out of commission for a while now, and i guess i have a brake light out (so the guy behind me tells me). maybe i'll do a lesson on the value of service to our senior highers...
5) overwhelmed with the urgency of the times that we live in - even in the new testament you find people expecting christ's return during their lifetime...and yet i have to believe we're a tad bit closer today. today there are hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, cyclones, wildfires, floods, terrorist attacks, wars, famines, and rampant disease...all in the same news cast. i don't want to be wasting my time, and i have been getting so fed up with all the little petty discussions and arguments that we christians seem to constantly find ourselves in...when our window of opportunity may be closing more rapidly than we realize...
