Raw Thought on the Divine Connection

Perhaps our relationships with our kids teach us how God relates to us as individuals ("Father" imagery) . . .

Perhaps our relationships with our spouses teach us how God relates to us collectively as a community ("bride" imagery) . . .

This & That

Tori caught her first fish during our trip to Indiana last week. I'm not much for fishing, but my dad is, and he introduced her to the sport (?).

I'm a bachelor this week, but my schedule is overfilled, so I am not getting much time to enjoy the solitude. The hectic pace of the fall schedule has begun again. This degree is the last time I'm going to school!

Saw "Dukes of Hazzard" with my brother Jason last week. Not a great movie, but I enjoyed it anyway. The rest of the family rented "Because of Winn-Dixie," not a movie I would have rented on my own, but turns out it pretty much tells the story of how simple churches "happen."

My sister-in-law, a physical therapist, confirms what we already suspected: Lucas has caught up to his age now in his development. His pre-mature issues are apparently a thing of the past.

Took Rebekah to see every house I lived in growing up, and every school I went to growing up. I think such sentimental activity is a sure sign of getting older.

And, for those who care, I officially declare the Cubs season over after they lost 2 of 3 to the lowly Colorado Rockies this weekend. How disappointing.
