More Than Language

I had to go to the doctor this morning to get my blood taken, for cholesterol. My mother suggested that I get a check-up before I get married. When the nurse knew I was about to get married, she told me that her husband would call me "another sucker." Another man, much older, once told me that "Marriage is where friendship ends and hell begins." Thanks for the encouragement! They make it sound like you have to play for the LA Clippers the rest of your life.

Here is a quote from another blooger on http://www.thesearching.blogspot.com. Entry April 1st.

"True confession of the need for Christ--true recognition of his identity--is not an action. I think it is a reaction; I think it is fruit of something much deeper. The life of Christ offers much more than language could ever encapsulate or misconstrue."

He has some really keen insights, so check him out. He has a point about the life of Christ offers much more than language could ever encapsulate. The information we have about the Bible and Jesus is not just facts, although some would argue. It needs to be inward-formation. Reading the stories of God should transform the way in which we life, see, think and breathe. Hope then becomes not just an answer, but the fabric of our journeys. Oh by the way, I'm still trying to let my life be transformed and not be an answer-man.

They Call Him FLIPPER

I've already been up for almost 4 hours now and still, everyone in my house is sleeping. WAKE UP! I had to go to the dentist today and get whats called a "flipper." This device is a retainer with one tooth on it. For those of you who don't know me, I am in the process of having a tooth implant on my front right tooth. With this "flipper" I can take it out any time I want to and freak the mess out of some folks. Let's just pray it stays in during the wedding and honeymoon. Might have to buy some of that miracle Fixadent cream: "Just Fixadent and forget it."

The Blogging Has Begun

Hi. I'm Clark and I'm a blogger. Yikes! To know all the implications of that is scary, I guess. So after much deliberation and thinking, actually I just had to defeat the laziness plague, I am adding my thoughts and ideas to the blogger community that resides in the time space continuum. I hope I can stick with this, but I make no promises. Anywho, thanks and enjoy.

Oh, about the title of my page...it has been taken from a song....who sings it and what song is it?
