    Without anything greater happening in my life today (except for catching a glimpse of the morning sunrise standing in the middle of my street in a jacket, green checkered pajama pants, slippers, and glasses, and having my neighbor ask me why I was taking pictures of her house until she realized it was me), I’ll just share that I came across this article that made me chuckle out loud at work- several times.

    And cheers to you, Firefox, because when I opened a new browser window this morning, the newer version of te app offers you articles to check out from varying sites.

    With a title like “The Lazy Person’s Guide to Self-Improvement”, the link was bound to catch my eye, and I am glad I visited it. It turns out the article’s author, Tim Dowling, is hilarious. Dowling is an American who somehow ended up in London (because of a girl) and today writes a column for The Guardian.

    Anyways, I’ll let you be the judge of the articles hilarity if you like: click here.

    I found Dowling so funny I went to Amazon to see if he written any books- and he had. It turns out the library downtown here had a copy of one of his most popular titles, “How to be a Husband”, which I picked up at lunch. It turns out, in this book, he is largely trying to teach how to be husband through a litany of examples from his life on how to avoid being a bad husband. He’s a funny, dry guy.

    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.
