A few thoughts on my mind since I last blogged (which was like 2 hours ago):
Conversation with one of my seminary students, who also mows my lawn & babysits for me and stuff:
Me: Can you mow the lawn today (Saturday)
Him: No, but I can tomorrow.
Me: No, tomorrow is Sunday.
Him: I'll just bring my family with me and then do it.
Me: No. It's not just about being with your family. It's about keeping the sabbath day holy.
Him: .... (looks puzzled)
Me: On the seventh day God rested. He wasn't secretly making flowers somewhere. He was resting.
Him: (gets it) Oh, yeah. Well maybe he was, you just need to read inbetween the lines and it says he was.
*Cracks me up!*
Best Movie I've seen this year? Hmmm... I think "Beasts of the Southern Wild"
Just watched it again (it's short)
The movie is beautiful poetry.
Here's my favorite line from it:
When it all goes quiet behind my eyes, I see everything that made me
flying around in invisible pieces. When I look too hard, it goes away.
And when it all goes quiet, I see
they are right here. I see that I'm a little piece in a big, big
universe. And that makes things right.
