A Fishy Dilemma

Face drenched. Heart Pounding. Conscience seared. In between mouthfuls of salty sea water, he must have wondered how in the world he ended up between the gruff hands of weather beaten sailors. As the icy water crashed into his quivering body Jonah had learnt that this was the only option for amelioration. Someone said thatContinue reading “A Fishy Dilemma”

State of your Union

Two nights ago Obama delivered the State of the Union address. Hearing the speech was novel for me as a Non-American, but I was  captivated by the oratory of Obama. After his speech Indiana Republican Governor Mitch Daniels responded on behalf of the GOP. He accused Obama of having a serious lack of political integration.Obama wasContinue reading “State of your Union”

5 Non-negogtiables. The Results

Thank you all for voting! It seems that those who voted are looking for someone who is, the same denomination, honest and ambitious. This is wonderful! What I find very interesting though is that finding someone attractive is 4th on people’s list of non-negotiables. I was certainly not expecting that! The joint fifth most popularContinue reading “5 Non-negogtiables. The Results”

I bumped into a friend and we started talking. WeContinue reading “Express Success”

What I hate more than Tests

Yesterday I took a Hebrew test so that I could pass out, and not take the class this semester. I missed it by 4 questions. So after studying and memorizing, I fell short.

Waiting on God.

My wife was so mad to see this on our door this week. I felt her frustration.( I regularly chase the UPS truck around Berrien when I am expecting a package) So my wife fussed, and paced, and lamented the fact she had to wait ONE more day for the package to be re-delivered. We are both woefullyContinue reading “Waiting on God.”
