10:51 PM Today's entry in the Crosswalk weblog is called Late Saturday Notes, in which I recommend a book about heaven, discuss grits and the delicious mysteries of the Moon Pie, and what song Marlene and I listened to thirty years ago tonight. 7:35 PM Spent several hours watching the Olympics with Marlene today. My favorite event so far: Badminton. When I was growing up, I played it a few times on the patio in our back yard. Now it's an Olympic sport. A fellow from Indonesia beat someeone from Korea. Pretty fascinating because the players stand just a few feet from each other, and the shuttlecock can take some funny twists as it zips over the net. I just said that badminton was fascinating. I think I'll revise that remark and say that it's unusual and fun to watch for a few minutes. I was more interested in the basketball game between the US and Lithuania (which we lost). 7:32 PM Our neighbors are planning a block party in a few days. The flier announcing it included this profound quote on the front cover: "It's not about how green your grass is, it's about how far you can run with an egg under your chin."

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.”
