So, I set up a GoFundMe Campaign

I set up a GoFundMe Campaign today. Never done something like that before. It's a strange feeling to ask people for money, especially for something they might not see as important, or necessary. I feel I should try, so there it is.

Let's talk Madden 16

Whenever I review a game, movie, show, etc, on this blog, I like to use a format I call 5 and 5. I pick five things I liked about the subject, and five things I didn't care for. I began this process for Madden 16, and found there were only two things I truly loved about the new game, while the rest were reaches to fill in the three empty spots. Number five was the inclusion of Tim Tebow, which, while cool, isn't a feature or mechanic, just something I'm happy about.

A Psalm (2)

Oh Lord, I have failed,
I have not sought you as earnestly as I ought.
I have not been as charitable as you desire,
And have not given you an appropriate tithe.
The list of my mistakes is like a book,
Ever being written.
Now I am challenged by troubles,
And trials are all around me.
I try to overcome,
But my strength is not enough,
And my own arms are too short.
I am not deserving of your help,
Or of your grace and mercy,
Nor your provisions and riches.

I consider my station,
But do I consider yours, oh Lord?

You have declared, oh Lord,
That the prayers of the righteous accomplish much.
You have declared, oh Lord,
That your blood makes me righteous, and redeems me from my sins.
I have not earned your favor,
But you have earned it for me,
So I may enter into your presence with boldness,
Full of thanksgiving and praise.
All that I ask for, you have already offered,
And you hear my prayers, despite my condition.
While I have been faithless,
You have remained faithful.
This is why there is no one like you.
None can match your greatness, or your mercy.
You delight over me, and all of your children,
Desiring to give us good things.
Yes, you have promised good to me.
You are great, oh Lord,
And I am thankful.

De-evolution of a beard

It's been since November that I trimmed my beard. Of course I kept the mustache in check, but the rest has been free to grow. The above picture was its pinnacle, as I reached the inability to maintain the mountain man look any longer.

Jesus is the head of the church, not men

Most people would agree that mankind is not the head of the church as a whole, but some see a hierarchy in the leadership, placing men above women. I'd like to comment on that, discussing some of my thought's on women in ministry.

Daredevil - 5 and 5

The new Daredevil series on Netflix is incredible. You probably already know that, though. Personally, I never have known much about Daredevil's story arc, other than he was a blind super hero. A cool concept, but nothing I ever got into. I saw the Ben Affleck movie, and didn't hate it, but it wasn't spectacular.

Now this series comes along, and it is great. There is so much that I enjoyed about the show, so, without further ado, here are the five things I loved, and the five things I didn't.
