A car with the Fish Sign

The other day I stopped at a traffic light and noticed the fish sign symbolizing Christian faith on the bumper of the car in front of me. On the other side of the bumper was a sign that read, "Getting by is as good as it gets." I haven't been able to forget that because the two messages seem so diametrically opposed. Does anyone else feel the same way?

One of the things I'm going to be exploring in this blog is the question of why the joy, contentment, and peace that passes all understanding which Jesus promised us (not to mention the power and authority) does not appear to be realized among many Christians today. Am I wrong about this? Do people really feel like the driver of that car and don't want to admit it? Isn't there something very wrong about this?

A Blog Maybe?

Many times in my life I've been told I should write a book, but who has time to undertake such a thing in this day and age? I've also been told I should join the Facebook generation so I can communicate with family and friends, but I don't know how to get around in it. And I can get by without updates on the strawberry patch my third grade teacher just planted in Farmville. On the other hand I don't want to let the world just pass me by either. Maybe I'll do a blog and see if anybody reads it.
