Okay, just want to take a few minutes to recap.

1 T-Abode
4 Card Tables
7 Rounds of Corn-hole (a few in the snow)
25 People
lots of food
great time
3 Handsome Brothers??

Kudos to Justin for his brilliant response to "Mystery Substance". It put my lame attempt at incorporating chemistry to shame. Way to go!! More to come on "Mystery Substance" in a second.

Anonymous shared interesting questions in response to Buster and Mosaic Generations.

"Reading these quotes, I was forced to ask myself: Am I closing myself off from the rest of the world, sheltering myself in this tiny bubble? Is it better to be on the outside looking in, or the inside looking out?"

Does anyone have anything to offer in response to these questions?

Back to "Mystery Substance." Okay, so here's the deal. When the mystery substance ran out at a gathering on Saturday night, I was a little disappointed. There is just something so wonderful about that mystery substance. (I'm exaggerating a bit, but stick with me.) I started thinking about all the [crap] that I "feed" myself that ends up leaving me disappointed, sad, angry... you get the idea. I try to fill voids or a VOID with other stuff that leads to only limited, fleeting satisfaction. (By the way, this is the other part of the answer to the question "Why? ". Also, for a great look into this issue in the context of human sexuality, read Rob Bell's book Sex. God.")

There is another "Mystery Substance."

Living Water

Jim shared this verse from Jeremiah the other night.

"My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water." (Jeremiah 2:13, NIV)

Too often, I forsake God and try to dig my own cisterns. They are like sieves (see The Message) and end up leaking all over the place. I end up thirsty again. Can you relate?

So back to Living Water:

Jesus said, "I am the Bread of Life. The person who aligns with me hungers no more and thirsts no more, ever. I have told you this explicitly because even though you have seen me in action, you don't really believe me. Every person the Father gives me eventually comes running to me. And once that person is with me, I hold on and don't let go. I came down from heaven not to follow my own whim but to accomplish the will of the One who sent me. (John 6:35-38, The Message)

Thirsts no more?

Until Later,
