Small Changes

Last Wednesday night, the 27th, I had an appointment for a haircut. All day long I kept trying to decide if I wanted to keep my hair the style it is or do something different. At this point just about the only thing different I can do is let my hair grow longer. Tomorrow I have an appointment to get my hair colored. I had it colored auburn quite a while ago and I am going to go with a little bit redder color this time. The color was a little to subtle last time I think.

"A recent survey has compiled all the qualities that people expect from the perfect pastor:

Results of a computerized survey indicated that the perfect pastor preaches exactly 12 minutes.

He frequently condemns sin but never upsets anyone.

He works from 8 a.m. until midnight and is also a janitor.

He makes $60 a week, wears good clothes, buys good books, drives a good car, and gives about $80 a week to the poor.

He is 28 years of age, but he's been preaching for 30 years.He is wonderfully gentle and handsome.

He gives himself completely but never gets too close to anyone to avoid criticism.

He speaks boldly on social issues, but must never become politically involved.

He has a burning desire to work with teenagers, but he spends all his time with senior citizens.

He makes 15 daily calls to parish families, visits shut-ins and the hospitalized, spends all his time evangelizing the unchurched, and is always in his office when needed."

News / Stem Cell Research Doing Evil to Do Good - Institute for Creation Research

"Criticism has been sharp both in the United States and abroad as stem cell research advocates emphasize the medical breakthroughs that studies might accomplish.

Yet, many including not a few scientists and President Bush have opposed expanded embryonic research because of the issue of where these embryonic cells come from. When the House of Representatives recently voted to lift the ban on stem cell funding, President Bush threatened to veto, citing the ongoing destruction of emerging human life (AP 2005)."

Happy Hysterversary?

One year ago today I was in the hospital at the University of Iowa to have a hysterectomy. I feel like this year has been a steady improvements over last year. This year I am working 40 hours a week and hopefully on August 2 I will be hired on permanently at DataVisioin. It's a boring job but the money is decent. The most important thing about it is it pays the bills.
