    Altocumulus clouds checkered the sky late this morning.

    Enjoyed spending the morning at my folks. My mom made a wonderful eggs and hash browns and sausage and gravy casserole accompanied by pumpkin frosting topped rolls. After that, dad and I put lights up around the house and on the main tree and its sidekick, the bush. After we were done, I came home and visited two of my neighbors and gave them some green chile. I ate leftover Thanksgiving food for dinner tonight- a second Thanksgiving dinner of sorts- and took a nap and then rallied to watch the Wisconsin-Ohio State Big 10 Championship game. Wisconsin was higher-ranked and undefeated, and fell short to another of Urban Meyer’s get-er-done squads in the end.

    My right jaw still hurts, and with that, a dull pain up the side of my head and at the back of it, when I chew warm food on that side. Go figure. It’s been nearly two weeks since I had two fillings put on a right back molar, and my head still smarts. I don’t know.

    I am always grateful for time with my folks. It is always clear that they love me and they appreciate me around, when sometimes, in my own mind, I am a lackey and just shut down at their place a lot.

    I still watch too much. Too much passive living in my life. We die. One day I will be dead. I know I want and need to do, create, and accomplish more, but I give in so easily to immobility. To shutting down and just taking what is thrown at me in life, instead of chasing much. I imagine my struggles with energy and mood have some chemical basis, but I am too lazy to find out.

    But I ought to.

    I am happy to go to bed by 10:30-ish tonight.

    A web programmer by day, I somehow still spend a lot of time thinking about relationships, God, and the significance of grace and love in daily events. I am old school in the sense that I believe in the reality of sin, and in the need of each human heart for deliverance to the Divine. I am one of those who believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that you can find most answers to life's pressing issues in Him and His Word, the Bible. I ain't perfect, and a lot of the time I ain't good, but by God's grace and kindness, I am forgiven and free.
