I got a "catalog" in the mail awhile ago from Doug Field's Simply Youth Ministry. It is a catalog of all the new and improved curriculum and other youth ministry paraphernalia and adorning the cover and back are about 100 thumbnail photos of youth group silliness.
I am all for youth group silliness. BUT BUT BUT i felt like this catalog is one of the leading sources in youth ministry and it is sad to me, that the way they promote and sell their items is by juicing up the FUN that they have.
I don't know maybe I am too sensitive BUT we have an entire world that is fun and crazy,our youth ministries are not about the games/crowd breakers......right???
I am sure that at Doug Fields church there is a HUGE amount of discipleship going on, kids coming to the Lord left and right.....I just don't want to misrepresent why our ministry exists. It's not cause these kids need another place to get crazy and have fun, it's cause they need the Lord!!
Ah whatever!

AHHH, THE QUESTIONS OF LIFE..............

1. Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, "I
think I'll squeeze these dangly things here, and drink
whatever comes out?"

2. Who was the first person to say, "See that chicken there?
I'm gonna eat the next thing that comes outta it's butt."

3. Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the
freezer?

4. If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a
song about him?

5. Can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the carpool lane?

6. Why do people point to their wrist when asking for the
time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

7. Why does your OB-GYN leave the room when you get
undressed if they are going to look up there anyway?

8. Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all
fours? They're both dogs!

9. If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that Acme
crap, why didn't he just buy dinner?

10. If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?

11. If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made
from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?

12.. If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come
from morons?

13. Why do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle , Little
Star have the same tune?

14. Stop singing and read on..........

15. Do illiterate people get the full effect of Alphabet
Soup?

16. Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face,
he gets mad at you, but when you take him on a car ride, he sticks his head
out the window?

17. Does pushing the elevator button more than once make it
arrive faster?

AND THERE YOU HAVE IT!!!

So.....i bought a NEW lotion today. For seven years I have loved Vanilla Lace. In fact I am known for that smell. But recently I found another lotion that I really like....Love Spell. I am going to make the switch, although I don't think I could ever give up my Vanilla Lace. We'll see how the new smell goes for awhile.

This weekend, I saw the light.
These past months have been quite stressful. Busy dealing with the past, trying to understand the present, and plan for the future. Areas have felt full of burden and such seriousness!!
Last Saturday my good friend Bill Sperry turned 30 and he had a birthday party. As I was dancing my butt off, i realized that I haven't felt happy or that free in a really really long time!!
Oh sad, that with the stress of life I ignored or allowed my joy to be pushed aside. Laughter, fun, happiness, joy, man these things are so important to me and they make the hard times seem so much less intense.
So, do not forget to laugh my friends. Dance like crazy people, draw with your toes, eat lunch without using your hands, paint your face for work, or walk crazy for a day!!

I am really looking forward to seeing this movie.

For the last couple of days my eyes have been extremely itchy and dry. I think it is a mixture between serious allergies and having the fans on in our house all the time. My left eye is real red and itchy, itchier than my right. I hope this stops soon.

Things at Jamba Juice are well, you know, things at Jamba Juice.

This month is a busy busy month!! We have a square dance, a youth conference, Justins choir performance, moving out of my house, Justins concert, new 5th grades at SURGE, Justin's graduation and did I mention.....MOVING!!!!!
Busy days ahead.
