9:36 PM Notable Quote: "In the world it is called tolerance, but in hell it is called despair … the sin that believes in nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing and remains alive because there is nothing for which it will die. - Dorothy Sayers" 9:29 PM Life around the house is so much fun when all the boys are home. It's noise and food and TV and guys coming in and out at all hours of the day and night. The phone rings all the time, friends drop by, the boys wrestle with each other, lots of chatter, lots of laughter. The energy level goes up about 500% when the boys are here. Just a moment ago Josh and Mike McGuin came in with two big sacks of White Castle hamburgers (sliders). Pat asked if I wanted one. Absolutely. I don't care for sliders as turkey stuffing, but as hamburgers, well, I can take care of a half-dozen without working up a sweat. 8:43 PM Evangelism Tips: Here are 24 Ways to Help the Spiritually Lost. 4:06 PM A handful of helpful articles: Jeff Jacoby on giving thanks for God's invisible hand. Marvin Olasky on Thanks Plus Giving. Maggie Gallagher on the dangers of gay marriage. Robert George on why marriage should not be redefined. Alan Charles Raul on the importance of morality and the law. 2:31 PM Watching the Arkansas-LSU game with Mark and Marlene. Earlier today I rode my bike to Elmhurst and back on the Prairie Path. A month ago I mentioned that some friends bought me a new bike. That bike has not arrived so I've been riding Nick's bike because my old bike has pretty much worn out. Anyway, it was cold today and during the ride I was thinking about how I'm feeling the cold more now than I did a few years ago. Last winter was the first time the Chicago cold really bothered me. Ten years ago I didn't mind the cold, and I made jokes about the "snow birds" who went to Florida for the winter. I understand them a lot better now.

Ebook: ABC’s of Wisdom

In the book of Proverbs, King Solomon left us a treasure trove of practical principles for daily living. The ardent pursuit of wisdom is every Chistian’s calling! Wisdom “is a tree of life to those who embrace her. Those who lay hold of her will be blessed.” (Proverbs 3:18)

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
