My Dad put me on to reading the memoirs of Calvin Miller entitled Life is Mostly Edges. Do yourself a favor: take an afternoon away, go to Borders, sit down with a cup of coffee and Calvin Millers book.

Miller splits the book into three sections: 1. Childhood, 2. Life as a Preacher, 3. Life as a Professor. And while the childhood years were interesting I lost myself in his section about life as a preacher. He looks back upon those early years in ministry recognizing his mistakes, funny stories, difficult decisions, his family and the church, etc. I read the majority while in bed and would lay there laughing and then reading excerpts to Nicole. In one particular story he reflects on the conversations he had in Bible college and I thought it very humorous because I had the same conversations in Bible College.

Again, do yourself a favor: go read this book. If you’re in the ministry or not you’ll read it from cover to cover. I did, twice!!!

Peace…Matt c.

Well…considering I have not written in over a month I am sure I am writing this note to myself. No one keeps tabs on a site that is not updated, right?

Lily has doubled her life span since I wrote last…she is 3 1/2 months now. And not only is she a little older, but she is way cuter. She talks and is even beginning to giggle a bit. Nicole and I cannot wait until she giggles real big! Her neck is strong enough to sit in her bumbo seat and check things out and she absolutely loves it when Boomer comes around. Her eyes never lose sight of him. The only point that stinks? She still is not sleeping all night! That will change in time, though.

Nicole and I are doing wonderful. Other than e-mail Nicole has never been much into the internet…that is…until she discovered facebook. She has friends galore, pictures posted, videos uploaded, etc. It’s a whole new world for her now. I, on the other hand, try to stay up-to-date with the facebook, but it’s not my cup of tea. I am currently spending a lot of time preparing to write my thesis for school and am close to submitting my proposal. It is not finalized yet, but I will consider the shape of Jesus’ teaching in the sermon. I will use another post to elaborate on all of us…I am very eager to get begin writing on this thesis, though.

Well…more later!!! Peace…Matt c.
