Skin!

September 19, 2011

Seriously though, skin is awesome. Next time you scratch your face and you don’t bleed till your dead, get an immediate infection or see your entire muscular and/or skeletal system in the mirror, praise the Lord.

Oranges!

March 30, 2011

In the last two days I’ve eaten two of perhaps the most deliciously juicy oranges I’ve ever had in my life. I am blown away by God’s creativity and kindness when I eat an orange.

A Windshield!

March 15, 2011

Cold, wet, windy rain! Running from the office to the car. Stuffing papers into my coat to keep them from getting wet. Trying not to wipe out jumping over puddles.

Inside the car- Ahhhh, shelter from the storm. Thank you Lord, for a dry, safe and warm car!

Auto Insurance!

March 8, 2011

Those “Free Stone Chip Repair!” stations don’t always work. We’re a case in point.  So we called the insurance company (USAA – ROCKS!) and they scheduled Safelite, their preferred provider, to come out today and replace our entire windshield at a discounted rate!

Drugs

February 28, 2011

Legal, pescription ones, I promise. :).
I’m coming off almost two weeks of bronchitis and other ailments and I’m profoundly thankful to be feeling a whole lot better thanks to two antibiodics and an inhaler. Praise the Lord for a job, insurance coverage, closeby and good medical staff, pharmacies and a patient caregiving wife.

SNOW!

February 21, 2011

Not for muscle pain from shoveling, frostbite from grabbing the mail or bruised knees when going out to warm up the car and biting it.

But for SNOW.  For two reasons.

1. This song: White As Snow

2. These comments from Martin Luther on Psalm 51:7:

“How can we become “purer than snow” even though the remnants of sin always cling to us? I answer: I have always said that man is divided into spirit and flesh. Therefore, as far as the total man is concerned, there remains remnants of sin or, as Paul calls them (2 Cor. 7:1), “defilements of body and spirit.” . . . Still we have obtained Baptism, which is most pure; we have obtained the Word, which is most pure; and in the Word and Baptism we have by faith obtained the blood of Christ, which is surely most pure. According to this purity, which in spirit and faith we have from Christ and from the Sacraments that He instituted, the Christian is rightly said to be purer than snow . . . even though the defilements of spirit and flesh cling to him. These are concealed and covered by the cleanness and purity of Christ . . .

. . . if you look at a Christian without the righteousness and purity of Christ, as he is in himself, even though he be most holy, you will find not only no cleanness, but what I might call diabolical blackness. . . . Therefore if they ask: “Sin always clings to man; how, then, can he be washed so as to make him whiter than snow?” you reply: “We should look at a man, not as he is in himself, but as he is in Christ.” (Commentary on Ps.51 Martin Luther pp. 366-367)
