random thoughts

~ I miss college football.  And I’m not even the teeniest bit interested in professional football.

~ I have some travel ahead, and over the years I’ve found the key is to have very low expectations. That way, if my flights are on time, I’m pleasantly surprised.  Heck, if I don’t have to spend the night in an airport, I’m pleasantly surprised!

~ That reminds me of a powerful quote from John Piper that I read recently: “We are not entitled to pain-free, trouble-free life. Embracing this will ease the collision between expectation and reality.”

~ I’m really enjoying my Kindle lately. It’s so much easier to read in bed at night with it instead of a big hardcover book, and I love the light that came with the cover.

~ Speaking of reading, I’m hoping to finish John Grisham’s recent novel today. My favorite of his novels has been A Time to Kill, and this one picks up with many of those characters about three years later, but with an entirely different story. It’s not great literature, but it’s a good story set in the south.

~ I find myself growing more and more cynical about politics these days. And that’s not a good thing. It’s just hard to keep up with the news without getting discouraged. Yet I know that ignoring the news is not an alternative.

Gotta run. Have a great day!
