The Last Five Minutes of Lost

The weather was unkind to us last night as we were watching Lost, and we missed the last five minutes.

From Wikipedia:

Jack tells Kate that he lied and that he still loves her. He asks if they can go together. Jack however does not want to see Kate's son and Kate says that she knows why he doesn't, but until he wants to see the child they can't be together. Kate returns to her home, where it is revealed that the blond-haired toddler she is raising is named Aaron.

Some random stuff I sent in an email to Mom...
Jennie opened up all the bags of clothes yesterday -- they covered the bed completely with stacks about half way to the ceiling! We won't have to buy clothes for a long time! It's awesome.
(My brother and sister-in-law give us hand-me-downs from time to time from their two girls. We rarely have to buy clothes for Mac.)
Work is kinda busy. But not too bad. Just always playing catch up. They awarded me a framed certificate and an engraved pen for working here for 5 years now. It was nice to be recognized. One nice lady said it was really 35 years, because they're "dog years." I thought that was funny (and agreed with her).

Mac is walking like crazy. She reverts to crawling every now and then, but for the most part she is a walker.

Our Square Dance club is doing lessons again, and Jennie and I are helping as Angels on Tues and Thurs nights. It is fun, and good exercise for us.

The Ruby programming group that I started is starting to grow. We meet once a month, and in March, me and another guy are going to do a workshop for beginners; we're hoping to get a lot of people to come. We already have a sponsor, and I asked O'Reilly (a book publisher) to donate a bunch high-dollar programming books to use as prizes or whatever. I'm excited about it.

What Are You Waiting For?

Here are the questions we asked today in small group:
  1. When was the last time something happened in your life and you knew that God was involved?
  2. When was the last time you were excited about reading your Bible? Why aren't you excited now (if your not).
  3. What are you waiting for?
It took a lot of effort to explain that last question, mostly because I'm not super articulate. What I mean is, are you waiting for something to happen to you or for you? Are you living in the moment, seizing every opportunity, seeing God in action in your life right now, at this very moment? Or are you waiting for that new baby to come, that new job, new house, more money, more time, better health, etc.?

I really wonder how many of us just feel like we're in limbo and failing to see the opportunities in front of us because we're waiting for... whatever it is we're waiting for.

Of course, I could be wrong... someday I'll be more knowledgeable of spiritual things and the Bible and can answer this question myself. :-)

Disney World

Originally uploaded by Tim Morgan
As many of you know, we traveled to Orlando, Florida last week and experienced Disney World. The trip was quite fun, and we created lots of memories. Mac loved seeing all there was to see, and though she will probably not remember any of our trip, the bonding was well worth it.

You can see pictures of our trip here.
