random thoughts for Wednesday

-today is my brother's 18th birthday. hello. that makes me feel old, since i vividly remember the day he was born, so i can only imagine how it makes my parents feel! happy birthday little/big brother :)

-why are somethings so much more complicated once you agree to them and get into and are already too committed to get out? is it just me, not being discerning, or what?

-hope: i had a moment earlier while i was cleaning out the popcorn maker upstairs in the youth room and i was really moved by the thought of the hope this season provides. i have not been especially excited about Christmas this year, but that moment, just thinking about hope entering the world in the form of a tiny baby--such a strange thing, and so yet so amazing.

-Christmas songs: i have one i started writing about 3 years ago, during Christmas of 2005, and my goal is to finish it this year. i've been saying that every year, but i'm feeling it this year, especially after that hope revelation earlier.

-don't do a google image search for "corndog." i really just wanted a picture of a real corn dog, but geez...

-i love learning from and in small, insignificant moments. this morning, i ended up helping answering the phones in the front office (and i actually didn't mess it up too bad!). but randomly, i had a great conversation with someone that's left me thinkign all day about respect, something i've already been wrestling with lately. also, cleaning out the popcorn machine and talking to God--something about those big revelations in the little moments.

-1 Tim 4:1-5 in the Message: "These liars have lied so well and for so long that they've lost their capacity for truth." This is a truly scary thought, one i need to chew on some more...

-leftover Thai ribs from Zea's = AMAZING lunch :)
