Lost Season Finale...and Theories

So last night i sat riveted in front of the TV for two solid hours. It was really great and as usual it left me confused. When thinking about the events of what happened I believe that I have figured out what LOST is all about.

Here is my theory...

LOST has been a set up. They are going to complete the next two seasons and then it will be shown that LOST is simply a spin off of Perfect Strangers.

Here is why I think this...

On the island people from all over show up. I think the next season finale the younger sister from Family Matters will show up. The younger sister that disappeared during the show with no explanation what so ever.

This will show that technically LOST is just a spin off of Family Matters...with the disappearing sister as well as a possible appearance Urkle. This will also be seen when the Dharma Initiative is actually ran by Winslow Industries.

Now as you know Family Matters was a spin-off of Perfect Strangers, however when Family Matters started there were no appearances by Balky or Cousin Larry. My theory is that they are also on the island in another hatch which keeps late 80's TV stars young and fresh.

At the conclusion of the series these actors will be released and Balky and Cousin Larry will move back to Chicago and laughter will begin again.

I know what your up to J.J. Abrams...trying to create the greatest television show sin-off trilogy since Golden Girls, Empty Nest, and that other show about the hospital in Miami. Plus we all know TV needs sex appeal like this again...

John Eldridge - Walking With God

It has been a while since I posted anything. both of my readers. My plan is to be more consistent with posting reviews of books and CDs. My plan is for Thursday to be the review day and for the other days of the week be more random thoughts and possible the occasion grocery list. Needless to say it is Thursday so here we go...

I finished reading this book a couple of weeks ago and it is still sinking in. John Eldridge is a gifted writer and it very transparent and honest in his writing. This is a breath of fresh air compared to many books that are written now days by Christian authors.

The book is basically a year's worth of prayer journal entries in which Eldridge has gone back through and added a few notes here and there. It is very honest and insightful.

Eldridge begins the book talking about the fact that Adam and Eve were created for this intimate relationship with God. We see in scripture that they walked with Him and conversed with Him. Eldridge believes that we are created with the same need and be intimately connected with our God.

It is clear to me that Eldridge has been at this "intimacy" thing a lot longer than I have. It is clear that prayer for him is a natural, and frequent part of the day. It is as if he and God our on a life-long road trip in which the conversation is not necessarily constant but frequent and in the moment. Just like commenting on what you would see driving across the country.

Although there are some items in Eldridge's theology that I may not necessarily agree with (such as our dogs waiting for us in heaven) I am still moved by his honesty and desire to live in intimacy with God.

The book speak a great deal about praying against things as well as for things. The process of discernment is coated in prayer it is clear that Eldridge seeks out God's wisdom in prayer in almost every major decision.

This book is a more personal writing than some of his previous books and is not meant to be a laid out theology of our relationship with God. This is important to keep in mind as you read this book.

I recommend this to anybody who is wanting to be challenged in their prayer life.

Mouse Chronicles vol. 2

Today I found a mouse pellet when i walked into my office. It was right in the middle of the floor. I think it was a message, much like the horse head in The Godfather.

Not only did I see the mouse pellet...I say the culprits. That is not a typo my friends...that "s" belongs on the end. Multiple mice.

After I sat in my chair at my desk I once again saw the blur. This evil mouse ran into my office...under the couch...and then back out followed by another mouse. This only mean one thing...they are organized.

I can not be sure because the move so fast but I am almost positive that they were wearing camouflage pants, black lines under their eyes, carrying walkie talkies, and one of them was making black ops style hand signals with his little disease ridden paw. So needless to say I am afraid of them.

Every time I walk out into the hall I wait for something to strike me. I keep looking over my shoulder afraid that they are sneaking up from behind. What is scary is that I am sure they are watching me type this.

I also never noticed that there are little mouse sized shrubberies in my office. In fact, now that I think about it they are in a different spot every time I look over at them. I am sure they are about to attack but I have an ace up my sleeve...

That is right. The Terminix man showed up this morning and set out traps for those little rodents.

Mouse Chronicles vol. 1

So today I was in my office working on what I was going to tell our graduating seniors this year when I noticed a slight movement to my left. As I turned I saw a mouse run out from under the love seat in my office and out into the hall.

I ran after the mouse but it was gone. My guess is that it went under Dusty's door (Dusty is the middle school pastor). I opened his door to tell him that I was mouse hunting and then I discovered something...

Dusty is terribly afraid of Mice.

Dusty was determined that I either made it up or that it ran down the hall because he could not admit that it might possible be in his office.

I personally know that it has to be in there. I think it is in a corner plotting Dusty's demise or possibly even configuring an advanced mouse repelling system to drop down from the ceiling tiles on Dusty's head.

This was not one of those cute white Stuart Little mice. There is no Michael J. Fox voice over. This was one of those nasty gray mice that probably had all kinds of diseases. However it is good to know that it is in Dusty's office and not mine.

However I do have a loaded air soft pistol in my desk...and Dusty has his blow gun so we are very well prepared for this little rodent to bring it on.

Way too late...or too early

So it is may 1st in the beautiful state of Colorado. What does the first day of this wonderful month bring me to celebrate brings me freaking snow!!!

Why on earth is it snowing on May 1st.

I feel like I should have left the Christmas decorations up for another 5 months. At the very least I should not have packed away all of my winter stuff so I would not have to go to work on a t-shirt.
