Historic Week

What a historic week we are living in! This will no doubt go down in history as one of the most defining times of our nation. Your grandkids will one day ask you where you were as it happened.

Yes, that's right, season 5 of LOST starts Wednesday!!!

Seems like I heard someone talking about something that's supposed to happen tomorrow too. Not sure what that was all about.

2-The time spent with family, including the chat with my wife and sister that kept me up til past 2am.
3-The three kids and three neices that woke me up at 6am.
5-The humorous gift of deliriousness.
6-Memaw's pecan pie.
7-Jana's AWESOME dressing and sweet potato cake she made earlier this week for our pre-thanksgiving celebration with her side.
8-My grandparents still being alive and healthy at 82 and 79, and being able to see my kids play with them the way they used to play with me.
9-My loving Creator, His Son, His Spirit, and His Word.

    definitely lots of things to be thankful for! So far, the pull-up bar has not done any damage to my door, and I have been doing pull-ups almost every day. The crazy thing is, it says it can hold up to 300 lbs. The only thing I have noticed is a little bit of paint has rubbed off (which can be prevented by putting tape or something soft over it, I have been told). It's really a handy thing to have, because you can use it for pullups (obviously), and also push-ups and sit-ups. My wife found it at Bed, bath, and beyond, and used a coupon, which made it like 20 bucks. Pretty good deal!

Money As Debt

Warning! Boring entry just ahead.

So congress voted down the bailout plan. I am quite pleasantly surprised. Of course it could still get passed later this week and many think it will. I hope not.

A few months ago I would have been utterly confused at all the rhetoric and not know what to think. Not that I'm an expert now, but I think I get it somewhat.

Here is what would have really confused me. Folks that supported it spoke about how if we didn't do this it would significantly impact peoples ability to get credit. On the surface that sounds good, but think about it. Credit is just another word for debt. So something that prevents people from going in debt is viewed as a bad thing. Doesn't that seem backwards? Shouldn't going into debt be a bad thing? Why would a government that's already in debt want to spend 700 billion dollars to help it's citizens go more in debt? Something sounds terribly wrong here. Until you understand how our monetary system works.

So with that, here is a must see video.

Feel free to disagree. Again, I ain't no expert. :)
  • csusoftballgirl
    I know this is a strange concept to most people, especially to my generation, but why don't we try spending only what we have in our pockets or in our bank account? What a crazy and revolutionary concept, I admit. Living without credit card debt?? Why, that's simply scandalous!

    by theparks at 09/30/08 5:01PM
  • jarrod
    I hear ya I do have mixed feelings too, but overall feel that the plan would make things better for a while but only create a bigger debt bubble to burst later on. So it's not like choosing b/w a good option and a bad one, but a bad one and a really bad one, imo.

    After working for a bank for many years, I learned a lot about how loans and deposits worked and how "money" was "made" into the economy. It's pretty scary how our economy can work on this system. I think we'd all be the smarter going back to barter system! :)
    by dianna at 10/01/08 10:33AM
  • dianna
    And another thing...just my two cents...the bail out thing bothers me because it's just another step toward a communism style government instead of one truly based off democracy and power of the states. I'm not completely studied up on government and politics, but the way this country is becoming less and less democratic in nature scares me.
    by dianna at 10/01/08 12:51PM
  • kimgriffith
    Jarrod, I think you are totally right when you mention it's choosing b/t "a bad one and a really bad one". The problem is we are already at this point. I personally think the economy can't go forward without some type of "rescue plan". The DOW dropped 778 when the plan wasn't passed, 1 trillion was lost out of fear and certain markets like Russia didn't even open up. Just in the prospect of the new plan passing the DOW went up 458 (or somewhere around there). It really is a "world market". I agree that the idea stinks but I believe where the economy is it's either a rescue plan or a complete financial bust. Many people already can see their 401K and savings being affected and this is just a glimpse of what would happen if the market really crashed. Unfortunetly, to me the lesser of the two evils bails out the wealthy wallstreet giants. (PARKS I would love to hear your opinion since you completely vague).:)

As you practice counting your blessings, you will find that your faith is being suddenly revitalized.
- Robert Schuller

If we just give God the little that we have, we can trust Him to make it go around.

- Madeleine L. Engle

When thou prayest, rather let thy heart be without words than thy words without heart.

No matter how steep the mountain - the Lord is going to climb it with you.

In love grace faith and peace,

    Thanks for your comment, Jarrod. When Steve and I got engaged, I had one dress that I used to wear to work that I thought was perfectly acceptable. It was just below the knee in length, buttoned up high enough, was loose enough, and had steeves. BUT, Steve told me that now that we were engaged, he felt he had to tell me not to wear that dress anymore because it gapped away from my chest when I leaned over and revealed what should not be revealed. I was not a Christian yet, and I was stunned that he would say such a thing. But, I was learning about being a Christian and the husband/wife relationship, so I complied. I can't tell you how thankful I am that I have a husband who cares enough for my soul to tell me when I am sinning and helps me with that. Would you be interested in writing an article to the men along the lines of "Husbands, Help Your Wives Be Modest" on here?

Theology: Fuel for life, not life itself

Every week I get a few religious periodicals sent to me via e-mail. Below is the bulk of one I recently got from Kevin Beck, Colorado Springs, CO (borrowed with his permission). It hit home with me and said a lot of what I’d like to say but in words better than I could put it. Enjoy.
I've got to confess that I really love the Biblical story and talking about it with others.

So I know that it's easy to become enamored with the trappings of theology, scripture, and the world of religion. You might read the Bible carefully, think about how the story fits together, and contemplate all of the implications.

You might wonder why others don't see things the way you do and work hard showing them your point of view.

You might wile away the hours in intense study and deep meditation.

As noble and important as all of that is and can be, it cannot substitute for living life. Understanding the story can fuel life, but it is not life itself.

I know firsthand how our thinking about God, Jesus, and theology can become a distraction from life. It's a relatively common experience. We see it in John 9. As Jesus and his disciples were walking together, they came upon a man who had been born blind. The disciples asked a question that revealed their thoughts.

"Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind"

Blinded to the human standing before them, the disciples saw a theological dilemma. An academic exercise. A point of debate.

Jesus, though, saw more. … And he dealt directly with the blind man's outer condition and the disciples' inner condition.

Every day, we have choices to make about how we invest our time, thoughts, emotions, and selves. We can get so caught up in theology that we become functional premillennialists -- raptured out of the real world and into a theological ether world. Or we can be compelled by the love of God and love for one another to remember that theology was made for humanity -- not humanity for theology.

Right now, there are people facing cancer, depression, acute hunger, loss of employment, fear, the death of a loved one, flooded houses. I'm sure you're facing your own personal challenges at the moment -- just like all of us. Seeing the fulfillment of the Biblical story doesn't make our daily hurdles magically disappear.

If we're not consciously living our lives, we may use our theology as a way of sidestepping or ignoring life in the moment.

I hope that the Greatest Story Ever Told is propelling you into a deeper and fuller life. That you're doing more than debating... That you're incarnating 1Corinthians 13 as you connect with the people in your world. That you're being present as God is present with us.

    i got us all the way to woodhurst but couldn't remember which house. yes, i remember watching movies in the back room at your mom's, jumping off the house onto the trampoline, and a valentine's party. good times! i hate to say it but i don't remember the camp out at mom and dad's. was i there? i do remember camping by the lake though. what happened to rusty? last i heard he was living out of the state and about to get married?

    yeah, i asked my folks tonight about the camp out and i think i must have had to work and then slept inside or something. glad y'all had fun! lol rusty called me when i was in CA at the end of 2001 but that was the last i heard. i saw ryan and rich at the holidays and i haven't seen them in ages. i saw your kiddos at church tonight. they are so cute! i wish mine had cousins to grow up with.
