Singing with the angels

I am sitting at my kitchen table reading a very boring theory book about temporal setting of rhythmic placement in Allemande music (I know, thrilling, right?), and Isaiah is beside me. He is cooing away in a sing song manner and looking up at the ceiling. No lights on, no flickering shadows, nothing.
What makes a baby coo like that?
I would propose that babies see things we don't see. They haven't yet learned what to look for as far as earthly things so they fix their eyes on what they CAN see. I think babies are born with spiritual eyes. They can see angels and they sing along with the song of heaven. I believe that babies have eyes that still can see what we have trained ourselves to look beyond--the spiritual world of angels, demons, and the heavenly.

I wonder if it is possible for us to retrain our eyes to see that too?

For a later conversation--I have had house mates who claim to see demonic forces and spiritual activity, so the answer to my above question is yes, but....

Xmas parties

Rent to Own Garages of Greatness

I've recently come into a great partnership. I have often wanted a place to store my tools and keep my car dry on rainy days. But I haven't figured out a good way to pay for such an expensive proposition. Of course I could build one, but I recently found that there is a company here in Ohio who builds these garages for a small mark-up and will deliver it ready to use.

Cincy Sheds offers these garages for sale or in a rent-to-own option. You pay 36 payments on a monthly basis of somewhere around $500 and you own the garage at the end of everything.

Why pay to have storage space at some location at a big storage facility when you can have a storage unit brought to your house? And these look classy too!


Running Start

"The worst that could happen is wet shoes and a broken ankle."
Those were the encouraging words Katie offered as we walked around the backside of the pond a second time.

On the front side of the pond was a little island, about 7 feet away from the shoreline. It appeared to be the home for the geese and ducks who flocked about the water that warm winter day. From a distance it looked like an easy jump to make it from the bank to the island, but the closer I got to the edge of the pond, the further the jump appeared to be. I definitely knew I wouldn't be able to make the distance from a standing jump but I felt fairly confident I could make the jump with a running start.

If it was just a matter of jumping from point A to point B, I would have attempted the jump with no hesitation, but there was some risk involved. Wet shoes, a broken ankle, and wounded pride were all fairly low risks overall, but still, it was enough to make me second-guess my parkour abilities.

So I decid…
