You Should Be a Painter

You have the vision, patience, and skill to bring your unique visions to canvas.
And you’re even tempered enough not to cut your ear off in the process!


You Have A Type B+ Personality
You’re a pro at going with the flow
You love to kick back and take in everything life has to offer
A total joy to be around, people crave your stability.

While you’re totally laid back, you can have bouts of hyperactivity.
Get into a project you love, and you won’t stop until it’s done
You’re passionate – just selective about your passions



I have been up to quite a bit lately.  Last Wensday I went to Chicago to watch a broadway production of Spamolt (a musical version of Monty Python and the Holy Grail) it was resque but still absolutly hilarious.  We also shopped on Michigan Ave and Gernee.  Lunch at Ed Debvics- it was pretty cool.  Friday was the AP United States History Exam-I am so glad it is over.  Afterwards the class celebrated with lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings.  In the Evening I went out with my friend Savanna to one of my favorte eateries-Noodles and Company.  We spent most of our time discussing Soriatology (doctrine of slavation) and emerging church topics.  Afterwards we went to Barns and Noble and paged through books like Blue Like Jazz, God’s Politics: Why Republicans are wrong and why the Demacrats don’t get it and a book devoted to the impacts of the Aszuza street revival.  Saterday evening was prom.  Before prom we took pictures at my friend Ed’s house-his sister is a photographer and gave us free (or maybe inexpensive, I am not sure yet) shots.  We ate a Mongo’s Mongolian Barbacue and were served by two friends from Rennsiance School of the Arts.  There was prom which was located an old movie theater that kind of looked like a southwestern styled buliding.  All the light was warm and there was a gated patio with Christmas lights and other warm lights.  There was also a chocolate fountain.  It was grand.  There was this amazing person (Gniles) who came with dear Shannon from the old woods of the  Smokey Mountains.  Later we wound up at Ed’s house again-intentionaly.  It was a very nice, calm atmosphere.  Mrs. Verbaton placed out fruits, cheeses and backed goods for us-how ever kind of her. Sunday I woke up for Sunday worship.  Went home and took a nap afterwords.  Sunday evening I went out with Shannon, Gniles, Savanna and Matt met at Starbucks.  We walked to Taste of Thai- I got spring roles because I really wasn’t hungry.  Later we went in a parking ramp and talked.  It was all nice.  Well, I am exahuasted so I am hitting the hay.  If people have noticed that about the last year or so I have been quoting verses from the two creation acounts in the book of Genesis.  I will coment on this later, pherhaps next time.  Peace to all.

Is the greatest truth about Adam and Eve and the fruit that it happened, or that it happens? This story, one of the first in the Bible, is true for us because it is our story. We have all taken the fruit. We have all crossed boundaries. We have all made decisions to do things our way and then looked back and said to ourselves, What was I thinking? The fruit looked so great to Adam and Eve for those brief moments, but the consequences were with them for the rest of their lives. Their story is our story. We see ourselves in them. The story is true for us because it happened and because it happens. It is an accurate description of how life is.
