Today marks the ten-year anniversary since my dad unexpectedly passed away. He was 1 month and 4 days shy of his 45th birthday. It’s hard to believe that, if God grants me another 15 1/2 years on this earth, I will have outlived Dad. I’d like to take a moment to share some lessons I’ve […]

“Teach us how short our lives really are so that we may be wise” (Ps 90:12 NCV).”
Michael Whitworth, The Epic of God: A Guide to Genesis

“The next time you have a terrible case of the Mondays, blame yourself and Adam, and then seek hope and inspiration in the Second Adam (Rom 5:15)!”
Michael Whitworth, The Epic of God: A Guide to Genesis

“I would rather serve an Almighty God who acts mysteriously at times, but is in complete control (cf. Job 13:15), rather than a God who never hurts my feelings because he is pathetically impotent or apathetic to his children. I would also prefer to believe that God is always at work for his glory and my good, instead of believing that he only works sometimes, letting bad things happen when he is “on a break,” or that bad things slip by him like a soccer ball past the goalie.”
Michael Whitworth, Bethlehem Road: A Guide to Ruth

“I treat my body like a temple. A temple of doom, but a temple nonetheless.”
Jim Gaffigan, Food: A Love Story

“Often on the menu, oysters will be listed as “oysters on the half shell.” As opposed to what? “In a Kleenex?” Even the way you are supposed to eat an oyster indicates something counterintuitive. “Squeeze some lemon on it, a dab of hot sauce, throw the oyster down the back of your throat, take a shot of vodka, and try to forget you just ate snot from a rock.” That is not how you eat something. That is how you overdose on sleeping pills.”
Jim Gaffigan, Food: A Love Story

“I’m convinced that anyone who doesn’t like Mexican food is a psychopath.”
Jim Gaffigan, Food: A Love Story

“Organic is probably the biggest scam of the century. For those of you unfamiliar with it, organic is a grocery term for “more expensive.”
Jim Gaffigan, Food: A Love Story

“A man who has lived in many places is not likely to be deceived by the local errors of his native village; the scholar has lived in many times and is therefore in some degree immune from the great cataract of nonsense that pours from the press and the microphone of his own age.”
Justin S. Holcomb, Know the Heretics
