Blogging Frustrations

Well, unfortunately I do not have anything deep to share this morning. Mostly because my life has been going about 90 MPH lately, but I go through phases. This is just a hyper-space phase. I did have a 'layer 8' issue with my blog yesterday. I had copied the "tag" list and got it posted. Well, my browser did some really crazy things with the layout of my blog (at least from my perspective) so I set out to fix it. Well, in the process of 'fixing' my blog I ended up deleting all of my links. AARRRGGGHHH!!!!!! :) Well, I did manage to get about 90% of the links restored, but I was also able to go ahead and add some new ones. I encourage people to look through the links as there are some really good resources out there IMO. I am always looking to add some new ones so please feel free to share any you may have with me! :) Some of the new links I have added are: John Piper - desiring God: - This man over came some serious childhood issues to become a mighty speaker for God. Some History of Christianity in Japan: - This site has some personal intrest of mine as I try and research the history of Christianity in Japan, and among the samurai in particular. Biblical Archaeology: - My bossman got me hooked on the search for Noah's ark. One thing led to another and I found this site. They have done some amazing research in regards to biblical archaeology. Worship Matters: - I have always loved to worship God with music. Since I am not particularly gifted I usually do so through other people's work. Listening, singing (with an untrained male voice), etc. This man was a member of the group GLAD and now leads worship at my old church. He has some really good insights into worshiping through this blog. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation: - This organization is somewhat close to my heart. The Habitat for Humanity: - What better way to help people than to build them a place to live. And not just here in America, but they do work all over the world. I know I will have more links to post once I remember them. For example I will be digging up the website for Young Life - a very good ministry reaching out to the youth of our communities. I am by no means an expert or the single best resource for such materials, but I do seek to find quality and biblically sound resources for myself - and I desire to share the things I have found with those around me. If you happen to follow a link and it blesses you please let me know. Verse for today: Jeremiah 9:23-24 esv Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”

So what were you searching for in regards to, "My bossman got me hooked on the search for Noah's ark."? Did you find it or are you still searching?

I was doing a project the other day with Adam and Noah's Ark.

No, I am not searching, but I am reading about the search for the Ark.
