I Think I’m Off the DL List.

•October 28, 2007 • 8 Comments

Hey everybody! So I think it’s been almost two months since I’ve written anything, but I think I’m off the “disabled list”. I guess you could say that many things have been occupying my time. (Work, music, my son, etc). Books have been a big part of my time out of the blog world as well.

I’ve been reading quite a bit, and I recently finished a book by Paul Auster, Moon Palace. Awesome book! I’m also a quarter of the way through another book by Auster, Timbuktu. I really enjoy this author because he doesn’t sugar coat his books with cliché endings and plots, but writes realistically about a period in his character’s life.

I’m also reading a book by Soren Kierkegaard, Fear and Trembling. Unbelievable…I don’t even know what else to say at this point other than it’s mind blowing. Other books are on my horizon, but I’m just waiting until I get through these before I start more. I’ll try and post more frequently, and I bid you goodnight.

Yes, I love technology. But not as much as you, you see.

But I still love technology. Always and forever.

This will not be much of a, “think about that post”, but more of a, “this is what’s up with Josh post.” So most of you know about this thing on the web called Craigslist. I believe I’ve turned some of you on to it. Continue reading ‘Yes, I love technology. But not as much as you, you see.’

Once upon a time there was an ant named James. (Now keep in mind that an ant’s life is not very long, but especially for the ant called James… so this short story that you’re about to read is not very long.) Continue reading ‘I dedeeN oT tsoP gnihtemoS’

Have We Forgotten?

Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few. – Winston Churchill

I recently re-watched the movie, Saving Private Ryan directed by Steven Spielberg. What a film! I have so much appreciation and gratitude for the Veterans of WWII. The sacrifices made by our whole nation… not only the boys and men that went to fight over seas, but also those that they left behind. Continue reading ‘Have We Forgotten?’

Josh You Silly Man, Part II.

We lean to our own understanding, or we bank on service and do away with prayer, and consequently by succeeding in the external we fail in the eternal, because in the eternal we succeed only by prevailing prayer. – Oswald Chambers

For those of you that read part one of a previous post and commented, thank you. These are some questions that were posed: “Does it do any good to pray for the outcome even though it has already taken place? What is the Lord thinking when He hears this type of prayer? With shrugged shoulders, would God change an event that’s already happened? And lastly, in not praying for an after-the-fact outcome, does that mean that I don’t care what that outcome is?” Continue reading ‘Josh You Silly Man, Part II.’

I loved the muppets as a child and even more as adult.

As If I Wasn’t a Big Enough Nerd Already!

•July 24, 2007 • 12 Comments

As most of you know I have quite a few hobbies that I love dearly. It started as a child collecting every sort of trading card you could think of, stamps, Sugar Creek Gang books, international coins, U.S. pennies dating from the early 1800’s, buffalo nickels, quarters, and two dollar bills, lizards, scorpions, ant farms, G.I. Joes, and white ankle socks (you can never have enough). Now I’ve matured and I love Reading and collecting Books, listening, playing, and dissecting Music, obsessing over my blog, discussing Lost theories with Ryan, and color coordinating the shirts in my closet.
