Reading Prodigal God, by Timothy Keller. Good food for thought about the parable of the Prodigal Son, God's extravagant love for us and the Feast of the Father:

On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare
     a feast of rich food for all people, 
     a banquet of aged wine-
     the best of meats and the finest of wines.

On this mountain he will destroy
     the shroud that enfolds all peoples, 
     the sheet that covers all nations;
     he will swallow up death forever.

The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces;
     he will remove the disgrace of his people
     from all the earth.
     The Lord has spoken.
Isaiah 25:6-8

The kids were reading: Dragonology, Redwall on CD, and more Betheleham Books. I also finished 19 Minutes by Piccolt. A sobering look at school shootings, bullying, culture and families. 

29 gallons of exterior paint later:  The fence has been re-built and painted, the dish from cable that we've never had has been removed from the front of the house and we are down to a few minor things to do and then we are done painting the exterior. This has been one heckuva long project. The house looks amazing.
PSA: Exterior paint adheres. Especially to skin and hair. Regardless of hot water and soap and scrubbing.

I have one free ticket to give away to a GG reader
