Lots of Random Stuff

I haven't had a bunch of time to blog lately...there have been many things that I have wanted to post about, but time has been a commodity that has been hard to come by in recent days...so, here are many of the things I wanted to make posts about, all wrapped up in one post, Reader's Digest condensed version:
  • I saw an interesting fellow at Ichthus...he was obviously a veteran as he was dressed in military-looking garb...as he listened to the bands he walked around holding two things in his hand...one was a cross, about 12-18" high...the other was an American flag that was huge, like one you would hang from your porch on July 4th...while I admired this man's dedication and love for God and country, I wondered if he - and many of us - had the order mixed up: Country and god...how often do we get wrapped up in the concept that this is a "Christian country," and as a result, put the flag up there - or above - the cross?...why don't we carry a huge cross - as Jesus told us we must - and simply have the flag as a patch on our shirt, if at all?...
  • Went and saw our local junior high's production of Annie...in a word, "Wow!"...they did an outstanding job...when I was in junior high, I was too busy drooling over Olivia Newton John to develop the kind of talent that they displayed...I was very pleasantly surprised at how well these students could sing...if any of you are reading, "GREAT JOB!!!"...
  • Just when I thought I could have optimism about the Browns chances, it blows up in my face...I felt pretty good about their draft and the moves they made in free agency...I thought they had some good weapons on offense in their running game - especially with the addition of Rueben Droughns - and some good receiving threats with rookie Braylon Edwards and with Kellen Winslow, Jr coming back from injury...then I hear Droughns holds out for a new contract - I curse thee, Drew Rosenhaus - and Winslow screws himself up bad in a motorcycle wreck (which is, incidentally, a breach of contract)...alas, the life of a Cleveland fan, destined to be disappointed...
  • We just finished up out fundraiser for our youth mission trips...so glad it's over...it was a major amount of stress, not to mention the majot amount of junk we sold...mad props to Carrie, Jill, and Marlene for heading it up...thanks to them, and to lots of volunteers both old and young, we raised close to $3,000.00!...praise God!...He is so good to us...
  • Got my new Palm the other day, the Zire 72...although the desktop software is giving me headaches, I love the Palm itself...I got to take it to church and use it as my Bible, thanks to the software Marcy got me a while back...it also had an MP3 player and camera on it...yeah, it'll make me more productive, that's why I got it :-)...much fun...

I think I'll wrap is up there, and not just because I have to go to the bathroom, although that is foremost in my mind right now...have a great day...

Fitz, I can't believe you're replacing Kim!! She's supposed to be your palm pilot, you know, the organized one of the amazing youth group duo. Anyway, I remember the guy from Ichthus you were talking about. He seemed so fired up and enthusiastic, he didn't seem to care that everyone was staring at him. It's really cool to see people like that, it's inspiring.
