Random Thoughts 12/31/11

  • Here's the last blog (I have another one that I've been working on but may not get it edited today) of 2011.  I hope you've had a merry Christmas and that you'll have a happy New Year.
  • Not that it feels much like winter, with temps in the mid-50's.  I bought a snow shovel in October and set it aside for a few weeks which turned into a few months and counting…
  • I'm looking forward to conference-play in the Big 12.  I'm worried that a very good Mizzou team will walk away with a good win or two over my on-again, off-again Jayhawks; you just hate to see the "leavers" get the last word in.  But who knows.
  • I'm starting a new sermon series on the book of Genesis tomorrow at church.  I'm also beginning a Sunday School class on parenting that will run during January and February.
  • In March I'll be teaching a Sunday School class on Revelation that will run through the end of the year.  So beginning in the spring, I'll be preaching from the beginning of the book and teaching from the end of the book.
  • Which NFL player gave the most money away?  Supposedly "dirty" Ndamukong Suh.  Check out the list here.
  • Graham has been telling me almost daily, "I forgot that you live here."  Thanks, son.  I work some late hours sometimes but I see him every single day.  I don't know what that little goofball is talking about.
  • Brennan and Tanner asked why we don't celebrate New Year's.  First of all, I wasn't aware that we didn't; many years we have a church lock-in or some other get together.  Granted, this year we're not doing anything special and going to bed early for church in the morning.  But instead of a straight answer I told them an elaborate far-fetched story about their mother's drinking problems… which they wouldn't fall for.  I should have said it was Grandma.  That would get a bigger reaction at prayer request time in Sunday School.
  • Confused about Facebook's Timeline feature?  This short article helps a lot.
