Saturday Random Bullets

  • I cannot believe it's been a full week since my last posting. Too dang busy, I guess.
  • I've been homeschooling, making Momocon costumes, teaching Bible Study, going to the funeral home and housework. (Should I add "running around like a chicken with my head cut off?")
  • And writing my sermon. The text is from John 2:13-22
    The Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple he found people selling cattle, sheep, and doves, and the money changers seated at their tables. Making a whip of cords, he drove all of them out of the temple, both the sheep and the cattle. He also poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned He told those who were selling the doves, "Take these things out of here! Stop making my Father's house a marketplace!" His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for your house will consume me." The Jews then said to him, "What sign can you show us for doing this?" Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." The Jews then said, "This temple has been under construction for forty-six years, and will you raise it up in three days?" But he was speaking of the temple of his body. After he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this; and they believed the scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.
  • I believe I will preach it as "Obstacles to Worship" -- but that may change as the day goes on.
  • So much water passed under the proverbal bridge that I couldn't remember the text from last week -- much less my sermon, until about a half-hour after I was asked. It's bad when *I* don't remember the sermon ... (it was about Taking Up Your Cross -- see? I did remember.)
  • Kitten ate a "ball" of thread earlier this week. Panic ensued -- but all things pass eventually.
  • Old Woman cat keeps getting out. Panic ensues, but I've found her each time. She's getting extremely feeble at this point. It's only a matter of time.
  • My fingertips are sore from all the pinning and duct tape and adhesives of various sorts. In fact, a couple of them are actually bleeding. But I must say, the kids look fabulous. Pictures will be forthcoming later, as the camera went to Momocon before I got a chance to download it.
  • I haven't even had a chance to get to Karate this week. My physical shape is turning more "round" than normal.
  • There is a funeral this afternoon -- and then home to bulletin making and sermon printing out, so this is the end of all bullets for today....
