Well, I’ve been tagged. Rod Pearcy tagged me with the four things questions so here are my answers. I sort of feel honored to be mentioned in the same post as Terry Storch.

Another prayer request

I just got word that my best friend's father has passed away. He's been sick off and on for a bit and developed an infection that antibiotics couldn't help. My friend has been through a lot over the last year and a half including a divorce. He's feeling pretty rough right now as he is feeling like he is carrying the weight of his entire family on his shoulders.Also, pray for me to have the strength to be there for him through this week. He lives two states away and is bringing his dad back to Kentucky for burial as that is where he wanted to buried at.

JJ is a friend that I know I can count for anything. When I went though a divorce, he was there for me, no questions asked. He opened his door for me to crash at when the world was caving in on me. I just want to make sure I am there for him even though he feels like he needs to do it himself.

Prayer request

My brother was rushed in for somewhat emergency surgery this evening. He is doing well. He was only in for about 45 minutes. His appendix had swollen and they wanted to get it out before it ruptured. He had been feeling bad off and on for the last little bit and started to a new doctor in the last month. His doctor had scheduled a cat scan or MRI, can't remember which, for Wednesday, but after feeling bad again Monday evening, they pushed it to Tuesday morning. After seeing the results, they sent him straight to the emergency room. They were able to use a scope to remove it and he could come home on Wednesday. Thanks.

UPDATE: I just got off of the phone with my brother and he is on his way home. The doctor told him to not lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk for a week or two. That will be rough considering he has a six month old at home.

Dealing with Tech Arts Burnout! - Part I

Anthony Coppedge has a great entry today about working in tech and not worshiping. As one who went through this, I can say that Anthony is 100 percent correct in his assessment. I can’t wait to read the next entry on how to avoid the burnout which will come with not worshipping.

Did Jesus exist?

A man in Italy is suing a priest in Rome saying that Jesus didn’t exist and that the church shouldn’t be teaching about him. The man is an atheist and actually went to same seminary as the priest. You can read about it on CNN

Just playing with more stuff. I created a Frappr map for my blog so go add yourself so I can see where everyone is.

UPDATE: One of these day I will learn that if Paul and I are both involved in the same group to let him add himself to Frapper first. We are both in the same town so his entry gets put on top of mine
