Psalm 13

Paul's mother passed away this week unexpectedly, so I've been asked to preach this weekend.  This is one of the two passages I'm working from.  I don't have anything especially profound to say, except I greatly appreciate this Psalm.

Psalm 13
For the director of music. A psalm of David.
1 How long, O LORD ? Will you forget me forever?
       How long will you hide your face from me?

2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
       and every day have sorrow in my heart?
       How long will my enemy triumph over me?

3 Look on me and answer, O LORD my God.
       Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;

4 my enemy will say, "I have overcome him,"
       and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
       my heart rejoices in your salvation.

6 I will sing to the LORD,
       for he has been good to me.


Desmond Bishop

desmondbishop Desmond Bishop was one of my favorite Cal players the last few years.  He was a big-time leader on their defense, a linebacker that seemed to be involved in a lot of plays; this April he was drafted by the Green Bay Packers (who seem to have an attraction to Cal players)  I know he'll be missed by the Golden Bears this year.  I came across this picture, today.  Apparently last night he did this to Reggie Williams (Jags WR) on two separate occasions.  I hope Bishop plays in the NFL for a long time.


Janelle is smart

This past weekend while we were camping there was this sort of verbal riddle/puzzle thing going around the campfire.  Janelle only stayed for about five minutes before retiring to the tent with Belle to go to sleep.  I stayed for another hour and a half or so, and after hearing that none of those who actually knew the answer to the verbal code/riddle/puzzle were able to figure it out without being told the answer my pride demanded I not be told, and figure it out.  After some time and some hints I was able to figure it out without being told.  When I went back to our tent to brag to her how smart her husband is, she cut me off as I began to talk and proceeded to tell me the solution that she had figured out after only a few minutes and no hints.  My ego is still recovering.


Dave's Site

I just added a link on the right to my brother Dave's site.  So, uh, check it out and stuff.
