*Random Updates Hodgepodge And Whatnot #4:
“Here’s a bunch of random stuff that’s unrelated but that you may be interested in.” 🙂
My résumé is now uploaded and available. If you’d like the version that contains full reference contact info, just send me an email and I’ll get it out to you. (JohnnyLeckie[AT]gmail.com) We are considering a number of possibilities for our next step in ministry, and I’d love to hear from you.
We finally replaced the car that was totaled back in April, and yes, it looks amazingly similar to the one we had before. This one however, is a Nissan Maxima. This was the first time we’ve bought a car using Craigslist, and I must admit, it felt a little sketchy. It all worked out ok in the end, though, so there you go.
Side note: I was reminded today how much I hate paying Tax, Title & Registration in Texas…Curse you Perry the
Governor Platypus! 😛
I discovered the book, “Hamburger America” by George Motz online, watched the trailer for the documentary, and decided to find it. Fortunately, I was able to get the book through the Keller Public Library and was happy to find that the DVD of the documentary was included. After watching it, Leona and I just had to go to one of the “150 Burger Joints” covered in the book.
Kincaid’s Hamburgers is reviewed in the book and there’s one just down the road from us, so off we went. And yes, it was awesome. My mouth is watering just thinking about it…
Rhett and Link are awesome. That pretty much sums it up, but if you’re not familiar with these guys, check them out here. Funny, creative videos and interaction including homemade “over the top” commercials for local businesses. Enjoy.
I mentioned earlier this week that I would like Steve Taylor’s song, “The Finish Line,” played at my funeral one day really, really, reeaally far down the road. 🙂 The last lines of the song describe how I hope my final days play out:
“Off in the distance, bloodied but wise,
as you squint with the light of the truth in your eyes,
and I saw you, both hands were raised;
I saw your lips move in praise,
and I saw you steady your gaze for the finish line.
Every idol, like dust, a Word scattered them all,
and I rose to my feet as you scaled the last wall,
and I gasped when I saw you fall
in His arms at the finish line.”
That’s a vivid picture of 2 Timothy 4:7-8, and an image of how I want to run this race…
