This 'n' That

I love waffles. I mean, who doesn't love waffles? If you don't love waffles, I have to seriously question your sanity.

So...waffle irons. They're fantastic because they make waffles, but they seem determined to do this under a complete cloak of secrecy. Oh, sure, that little green light on the top is supposed to blink or glow when the waffle is done, but let's be honest, that little light is useless. That little green light of mine, it does not shine. Or it does shine...all the time. Yeah, so that's not helpful at telling me when the batter has become waffley deliciousness.

I ask the question then: why not a window? Why not a little window on the top of the waffle iron so you can monitor the progress of your waffles? We are wearing computers on our wrists, for crying out loud, so why can't we develop a windowed waffle iron? And this one may claim to be "smart" and know the perfect cooking time for my preferred waffle color, but how does it know?

These are the things I ponder when I am trying to escape everything else that plagues my mind. What's the spiritual significance? Well...um...here you go: it doesn't matter if we think we've closed the blinds on the window of our soul, God still sees the thoughts of our mind and the true condition of our hearts. Now, if any of you pastors decide to use this for a sermon illustration on Sunday, I'll expect to receive my royalty check next week.

Well, it is Friday (hooray!). Why not whip up a batch of waffles, pour a cup of coffee, and sit down to enjoy your week in review (kind of):
  • A great selection of resources from Dr. John MacArthur.
  • I want to read this book.
  • Did early Christians believe Christ would return in their lifetime?
  • A distraction? How could those fabulously awful wigs be a distraction?
  • I'm just about ready for a new iPhone, but not at those prices!
  • I've never heard of the Pallas' cat.
  • The fine points of Calvinism.
  • This reporter has interesting insight into the now-deceased "Bishop" Eddie Long.
  • Here's your weekly dose of adorable.
  • The sequel to 50 Shades of Grey releases today. Here's a little reminder why Christians should avoid these movies.
  • I hate to break it to the "human Ken doll," but I kind of think he might be addicted to plastic surgery.
  • I'm not sure what Ann Voskamp was preaching at this year's IF:Gathering (which, by the way, ladies, is something you should avoid!), but it wasn't anything rational.
  • Seriously, what is she talking about? Was she having a seizure when she tweeted this?
  • Does it really matter if it is called a "sanctuary," and "auditorium," or something else? Here are some interesting thoughts on the matter.
  • Dead men still speak:

  1. Erin,

    I didn't initially realize the link you had about that vile movie was 2 years old... not until after I submitted a comment. Sorry.

    That said, believers are supposed to be innocent in that which is evil (Rom 16, vs 9). Enough said.

    On a lighter note, I'm not sure how a "waffle window" would work. Unless one can up with some sort of translucent waffle iron griddle material, they will have to forever remain opaque, and the process of waffle making, forever shrouded in mystery. :)

    But thanks to your post, my husband and I may have to exchange our usual Saturday am pancakes for waffles this weekend.
