A Talk With My Biological Father

I love my dad. He's one of the smartest people I know, and I still have that little girl view of him where he can do no wrong, and everything he says is right. He's just wonderful.

If some of you don't know, I attend Belmont University, and they've been having this ordeal with the Tennessee Baptist Convention where the TBC is refusing to support Belmont because it has "strayed" from the Baptist denomination. To make a long story short, Belmont is no longer supported by the TBC. Blah blah blah... This wasn't what my dad and I talked about. Well, we started talking about it, but then we got onto the topic of denominations in general.

And then my dad brought up a good point:

What do denominations do? They segregate the body of Christ. If that's not satanic, then I don't know what it is. Think about it. What would Satan like more than to separate the followers of Jesus Christ? This is why I've chosen to label myself as non-denominational. I mean, it's good to share different beliefs and viewpoints, but if we take it to the point where we don't support each other through thick and thin (i.e. TBC and Belmont), then what's the point? We're just as bad as everyone else.

I have more to write, but I have a date with my mom at 2:30pm. :)

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things" What things are purple? Make a list. Eggplants One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater (see below) Bruises (sometimes) a REALLY beautiful sunset Elizabeth Taylor's eyes (does violet count?) Barney (I love you, you love me...) Grapes Lavendar Orchids Amethyst Cabbage (sometimes) Lots of different birds Plums Violets Onions ROYGBI V That's all I can think of. You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome. Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley: Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, an
