This 'n' That

If I'm not mistaken, I think I may have set a personal record over the past 12 months for self-inflicted injuries. I'm always stubbing toes or hitting knees. This year I also managed to perform one of those banana peel-esque falls (those aren't just for cartoons, in case you were wondering), landing squarely on my back. A few months later I gave myself an apparent concussion with the car door (don't ask). And earlier this week I somehow managed to electrocute myself. Only mildly though. As far as I know, no major damage was sustained, and it provided some fairly entertaining Twitter conversations.

So, what is the moral of the story? God has designed us as really incredible, sturdy creatures, and that is amazing. It's also amazing that He not only puts up with those of us who are physical and sometimes emotional klutzes, but that He actually uses us to work out His purposes here on Earth. What a good and gracious God we serve, amen? We are so undeserving.

I hope you've all stayed safe and pain-free this week. It's Friday now, so sit back, relax, and enjoy your week in review (kind of):
  • Some interesting facts about the yawn.
  • Nature is weird and fascinating.
  • More on Andy Stanley.
  • I haven't yet watched this debate between J.D. Hall and theonomist Joel McDurmon, but I'm anxious to see it.
  • This made me think of this. Yep, that's going to be in your head the rest of the weekend. You're welcome.
  • Here's your weekly dose of adorable.
  • To Christine Caine, I would say: It takes a very brash woman to teach men at all, considering it's expressly forbidden in the Bible. Repent, trust in and obey the Christ you claim to serve.
  • Um, wow. This is just a really bad idea. 
  • Yeah, I have to agree with the court on this one.
  • Here's a great sermon by Phil Johnson from Psalm 19 on the superiority of Scripture.
  • "Does an unregenerate man bear a spark of the divine that draws him to a relationship with God, or is he utterly lost in the total depravity of his sin nature?"
  • Spelling skills are not required to protest the Shepherd's Conference.
  • Thanks to Stephen M. for sharing this with me. Kevin DeYoung explains why Christians do not love the world:


  1. I actually gave myself a concussion once sitting down on the couch. :(

  2. Maybe you are under some kind of curse. Is your tithe up to date?

    : )

  3. My favorite Captain & Tenelle song! Didn't they divorce a few years ago? Just sayin' for Paula's benefit...

  4. Coulda been worse.... you coulda linked to Muskrat Love.
