The Truth Behind the Lies

  • Reading: Simple Scrapbooks
Okay, so everyone guessed which was true. But now it's time for the truth behind the lies.

1. When I was 17 I backed my 10-year-old Oldsmobile into my boyfriend's parents new Oldsmobile.
The truth: I was 18 and my boyfriend, aka Colin, backed his parents car into his track coach's car. (But I did drive a really *sweet* 1973 Cutlass Supreme.)

2. I threw up while bungee jumping at Deer Creek Music Center (now the Verizon Wireless Music Center) in May of 1999.
I saw someone else do this.

3. I locked myself out of my running minivan with 18-month-old Andrew inside in his car seat.
One of many less-than-stellar mommy moments.

4. When I was taking trampoline lessons in seventh grade I missed the tramp and broke my wrist.
I *did* take trampoline lessons in seventh grade.

5. I spilled a tray of drinks in Gene Keady's lap when I was waiting on him at Damon's in Lafayette, Indiana.
This is my personal favorite. I *wanted* to! I waited on Mr. Keady many times. He took up the best table in my section all night. His food was comped but he barely tipped. (I did however spill a whole tray of drinks on another guy once and it was not an accident.)

Four Lies

  • Reading: S is for Silence
I was tagged by my friend Jennifer, who got this from a page of writing prompts for kids. (WHich incidentally looks like a really great site!)

Write five things about yourself with only ONE of them being true. The other four are fiction, and everyone else gets to guess which one is not fiction.

1. When I was 17 I backed my 10-year-old Oldsmobile into my boyfriend's parents new Oldsmobile.
2. I threw up while bungee jumping at Deer Creek Music Center (now the Verizon Wireless Music Center) in May of 1999.
3. I locked myself out of my running minivan with 18-month-old Andrew inside in his car seat.
4. When I was taking trampoline lessons in seventh grade I missed the tramp and broke my wrist.
5. I spilled a tray of drinks in Gene Keady's lap when I was waiting on him at Damon's in Lafayette, Indiana.

So which one is true?

If this looks like fun to you, consider yourself tagged. : )

Curfew Defeated

  • Weather: Unseasonably warm :)
The proposed daytime curfew was removed from the bill by its author on Tuesday. Thanks to all who called, emailed, or forwarded the information!
This has been an interesting few days. I've gotten a good look at the attitudes of some of the people who are "working for us" and I am not impressed. There are representatives--I don't know how many, but they're there--who don't like it when they receive feedback from the taxpayers.
I was also amazed as I browsed throught the bills that were up for just this session just how ridiculously micromanaged our lives have become.

Lost, Blog Comments and Baptism

  • Reading: Blowback by Brad Thor
  • Listening: Analysis of the State of the Union Speech
We are big fans of the TV show Lost and were all quite pleased with the turn that the story took last week, which ultimately resulted in the baptism of Aaron, the baby who was born on the island.

Dr. Veith posted about this on Cranach several days ago, and the comments have been really interesting. I hadn't checked them since Sunday and the discussion has been very active since then, largely becoming a discussion of infant baptism. There are a number of excellent comments, but I was particularly struck by the last couple of paragraphs of a comment by Pastor Cwirla:

For a Lutheran, Holy Baptism applied to an infant perfectly depicts the central article of the justification of a sinner by God's grace (undeserved kindness) through faith (trust in the promise of salvation in Christ) for Christ's sake.

As for "infant faith," Luther refused to speculate on things he could not know. Who can really know what an infant trusts? Baptism gives the person, whether infant or adult, something tangible to trust. It's nice to know that Christ died to save the world. It's even better to know in Baptism that He died "for you." The words "for you" require all hearts to believe.

I'll even dare to speak personally. (Yes, Lutherans have personal testimonials too!). I was baptized when I was five weeks old, was nurtured in the Liturgy, catechized by my parents and pastor, etc. As a result, I do not have a single conscious moment in my life when I did not know and trust Jesus Christ as my Savior. That's why I can't relate to "Amazing Grace" when it sings "I once was lost but now I'm found." I have to believe from the Scriptures that I once was lost, but I have no such memory or experience. I've always been found in Jesus.

This really resonated with me. When I was active in Young Life as a teen people were always trying to convince me that I *had* to have "decided" at some point. That there was *no way* that I'd always believed. ( Or alternately, that I wasn't truly saved.)

Anyway, it will be interesting to see where Lost takes this story.

Daytime Curfew Proposed

  • Reading: The Constitution of the United States
There is a bill working its way through the Indiana legislature that would impose a daytime curfew on all people under 18. The pertinent part is section 12.

Daytime curfews are a bad idea for any number of reasons. First, there is the fact that the few controlled studies which have been done show that daytime curfews do not lower juvenile crime rates.

Under the proposed law a teen out driving or walking can be stopped and questioned just for being a teen. Being a minor is not probable cause! Daytime curfews also assume a person is guilty until proven innocent.

And what constitutes school hours? Within the Fort Wayne metro area there are at least four different school districts and dozens of private schools. If you move out into the surrounding areas there are dozens of school districts. The calendars and school hours are not uniform among these schools. And in Columbus there is even more variety, because some schools are on a year-round calendar.

Enforcement efforts should be focused on those minors who are enrolled in school. The schools KNOW if they are not in attendance and can deal with truancy. There is no reason to pass a sweeping curfew law that opens the door to harrassment of innocent kids.

The Haircut Revisited

It has been interesting to see the comments on Bethany's blog about the big haircut. They parallel what we are hearing from our friends face-to-face, too.

Men like the after version; women liked it before. Since, once again, the limitations of this blog won't let me upload the pictures, if you haven't seen them go take a look at Bethany's site.

Too Much Fun

  • Reading: Ordinary Heroes by Scott Turow
I had planned to work on switching over my blog last night, instead we went dancing. Even though we've only had five lessons, we discovered that while we were dancing with more experienced dancers we could at least "kind of" dance. And hubby and I did manage a whole song of Rumba. Now we just need to learn something beyond the basic!

The Haircut

My son Patrick's hair caused almost as big a stir as Pastor Petersen's tie at the Sabre ceremony Thursday night. The other acolytes were also threatening drugging and shaving, so he gave in and got a haircut. (Although we don't want the acolytes to get the idea that they were responsible!) Check out Bethany's Excuse for a Blog for the before and after pics and commentary.

So a big thank you to Pastor Fickel, Pastor Gehlbach, Paul Lagemann, and Pastor Petersen! I can see my son's eyes again!
