As I listened to a conference talk that used the biblical account of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego as model examples of what it truly means to have faith, I thought of my brother, Tom.

I remembered that he would use the word "hot" interchangeably with the word "shadrach." Like, "Oh man, I think it's pretty shadrach in here," and then he'd open the car window or something. I thought it was really dumb at the time, but I realized that that it is totally funny, and I kept smiling to myself about it at work.

On another note, I put my zune on "shuffle" today, (which I never do) and Simon & Garfunkels' "The Boxer" started playing. I'd forgotten how much I loved this song and I sang along and completely enjoyed it. Then I realized I couldn't remember a time when I didn't know this song. Kind of like how I can't remember not being able to read. And it's still so good:
lie-la-lie. la-la-la-la-lie-la-lie. lie-la-lie. la-la-la-la-lie-la-lie-la-la-la-la-lie.

So I'm new to blogging. Am I suppose to reply to the comment you left on my page here (on your page) or just below where you left it (on my page)? Or perhaps there is a secret place that I don't know about yet where such comments are answered.
