A Win

It’s a beautiful Sunday morning.

There is a gentle breeze that moves the various chimes and bells I’ve accumulated, to produce a heavenly twinkling of sound.  The morning sunlight is absolutely GOLDEN and rains have greened the grass and the garden.

I’m on the back deck, studying the Bible, contemplating that which has happened to me, and that which is still to be faced.  My spirit is soaring and I am reminded of this beautiful hymn.

I believe more strongly than I ever have and am, this morning, filled with a sense of gratefulness and praise for this beautiful morning.

The Springtime of my Loving

Friday was Passover, so we put in the Victory Garden.   I’ll post some pictures later on when it’s growing.  I listened to some awesome music while I tilled and raked and planted.

I look back at the last month, and think it’s not so bad, and He was with me the whole time.

I was really liking the part: “They are weak, but He is strong”.

Happy Easter

Some interesting reading time today, it’s Easter and drizzled rain for most of the day, so I layed around with the laptop


I put that one in the idea hopper. SubPub Messaging; scales to 10+M, yow

I read about Simon Greenleaf

While teaching law at Harvard, Professor Greenleaf stated to his class that the resurrection of Jesus Christ was simply a legend; as an atheist he thought miracles to be impossible. In a rebuttal, three of his law students challenged him to apply his acclaimed rules of evidence to the resurrection account.

After much prodding, Greenleaf accepted his students’ challenge and began an investigation into the evidence. Focusing his brilliant legal mind on the facts of history, Greenleaf attempted to prove the resurrection account was false.


Greenleaf was so persuaded by the evidence that he became a committed Christian. He believed that any unbiased person who honestly examines the evidence will conclude what he did—that Jesus Christ has truly risen.

I can add that one to may existing faith:
John 21:24 This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.

Late Nights->No Problem

It starts with a burning. A desire to do something I haven’t done before.

I wanted to have a system to tame big data, and produce charts. I finished a prototype. Then, the work to create the database, tables, queries to make it run. I get stuck.

Invariably, when I have a break-through, its later in the evening, and I can’t stop.

So now it’s 1:15AM, and the break-through is in code…but will I wake up in time to get to work ontime?

Who rules Barter-town?
