I think I may try to make this a semi-regular blog. I often have thoughts that I would like to blog about, but do not have time or the energy to spend on a well-written blog. Other times I just simply do not have enough to craft a full blog, so here are Aaron’s random thoughts for July 28, 2008.
I was wrong about Jim Edmonds. He has been an important addition to the Cubs. Now if they can just get Fukudome back to his April form. Of course, what would a Cubs season be like without a trip to the DL by Kerry Wood. Now the only problem is that he is sidelined by a blister. A blister. This is not quite Sosa going on the DL because of a sneeze, but maybe equal with Zambrano hurting his arms because of IMing his relatives in the Dominican Republic. Oh the joys of being a Cubs fan.
I’ve been reading John Wesley a lot of late. I’ve come to appreciate his theology and his method. It is very straightforward, organized, and passionate. Exactly what you would expect from Wesley. I have to read it because of a class, but I am actually enjoying it.
I have a new addiction: Oyster Crackers. At least, they are healthier than candy, I guess. But continually eating them for 30 minutes a couple times a week can’t be healthy, can it?
Heather and I have been watching the Next Food Network Star. I have actually enjoyed it and glad to see Aaron win, not just because we share the same name, but because I actually might watch his show, and maybe but doubtfully cook one of his meals. After working at Tastebuds for the past year and just cooking more in the past year, I am enjoying the kitchen more and more. But continuing to dislike doing dishes more and more.
The Holy Spirit keeps creeping up in my different classes, readings, and conversations. I don’t think we know about the Holy Spirit very well, and I think I need to learn and experience God as the Holy Spirit more often.
I have been memorizing scripture of late. So far I have memorized Jesus as the True Vine passage and the Shema, and I am working on the Sermon on the Mount. It has been great to have the Word of God truly reside in my heart. I heartily recommend the practice.
I like Tyler Perry’s movies. Sometimes he goes a little over the top w/ his characters, but he always tells a good story that has a point, and you know how I am a sucker for movies with points. Plus he likes to talk about Jesus.
