odds and ends

Welcome to those of you visiting from Canada and Germany (eh, and da - respectively). If you are an international visitor, please take a moment and post a comment and let us know you're here.

I've been spending much of my time recently preparing for our Annual Youth Auction and dinner (May 6th at 5pm, tickets are $8...shameless plug). We have some really great donors this year as well as some great slave...er servant labor for sale as well.

I've discovered some really cool online tools recently. One is Google Calendar and the other is Google sketchup (a 3D modeling tool). I'm liking this web 2.0 thing, and there seems to me more and more free (and useful) programs available.

It has been difficult for me to read lately, but I just started reading a book by David Crowder called "Praise Habit." I must say, I didn't know what to expect from a quirky musician like him. Well, what I discovered so far is that his book is very much like his hair, fun and a bit weird. In the first half of the book, he explains about what a Praise Habit looks like (a lot like a nun). The second half of the book is full of excerpts from the psalms and his personal reflections. I love his creative way at looking at praise. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to better understand what praise is and how to incorporate it into your every day life (or if you are a fan of strangely written books with pictures of nuns).
