Bad Blogger Outta Town

Not that you'll miss me since I haven't been posting much (okay, AT ALL) lately. But this time I have a good excuse. I'm actually in Grand Rapids, Michigan at the Calvin Festival of Faith and Writing (not to be confused with my son, AKA Calvin).

Michelle and I got in last night and helped Coach and Kimberly set up the Relief booth then had dinner and a lot of laughs with them.

I've already decided that Michigan has odd driving rules. You can't make left turns at lights, but you make U-turns in the middle of the street. Huh? And when you are waiting to make a left turn on a green arrow, the light flashes red instead of a steady green. Very bizarre.

I've also decided I've stayed at too many motels. At breakfast, I seemed to be the only one who knew you had to turn the self-serve waffle maker over to get it started. I had to help several people. Mostly, it was the incessant beeping of the waffle machine that was driving me nuts and I was trying to stop it. But it appeared that I was being nice.

Not sure when I'll post again, but I'll be sure to update you on my experiences here. With Michelle and I together, who knows what will happen.

The Kroger Art Gallery

You gotta check out Jeanne Damoff's post today at Master's Artist.

I've always loved how she finds beauty in the ordinary, and this post just expresses it so beautifully.

Plus, I would have paid money to see her taking pictures in the produce section and seeing the expression on the other shoppers' faces.

Did I mention I envy her her camera too?

Laughter as Carbonated Holiness

That line comes from this Christianity Today article. It also contains this gem:
...laughter is the Elmer's Glue that attaches us to the goodness that inhabits this world, and to the gladness that hints at the world to come.

I found the article particularly timely after one of my favorite young people said last night, "Jennifer loves to laugh." Yeah, I do. And I have a lot to laugh about, thank You, Jesus.

Anything made you laugh lately? Share, because you can never have too much laughter.
