random tuesday: the glory and the sheepdog.

-it's random tuesday time, folks.  let's see what's bubbling to the surface of my busy mind this morning....

-i love working out at the gym....its working out for me.  but when the guy on the treadmill DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF YOU is wearing this shirt, it is troubling, to say the least. 

-yesterday, out of nowhere, caedmon said to me:  "we are God's lambs, but we are max's shepherd."  i couldn't help but laugh, picturing me shepherding max out on a field.  he would make a good sheep. 

-last night we finished our 6-week study at church on Christianity and World Religions.  it was a very worthwhile study with about 20 of our members and friends, and i think we all learned a ton, grew out of some of our ignorance, overcame a bit of our fear, found some things that we can learn from our sisters and brothers of different faiths around the world, and realized once again why the grace of the Christian concept of God through Jesus Christ feels most like home to us.  it was a good and worthwhile journey. 

-next thursday we will start a new study on a book called "not a fan."  we'll be having a kind of "define the relationship" conversation about our relationship with Christ.  are we fans or followers?  do we just "like" Jesus on facebook, or do we live as committed disciples?  some important questions to wrestle with as we continue our growth as Christians.  join us on october 25th at 7pm.

-favorite shows this fall?  new girl.  up all night.  parks and recreation. 

-listening to right now?  owl city, because my boys want to hear "hello seattle" on repeat all day long. 

-here is a sample prayer offered by caedmon at bedtime:  dear lord, thank you that we had a really nice time today.  and that we will have an even nicer time tomorrow.  thank you for the glory and the kingdom who art in heaven.  the strength and the glory and christ Jesus.  forever.  amen. 

-last night we celebrated a time-honored tradition here in the milinovich house:  we had apple pie and fried potatoes for dinner.  i don't know's something that we inherited from shannon's childhood, but i'm a fan of it.  just a small plate of fried potatoes and onions, and then a large piece of homemade apple pie.  that is an epic dinner, my friends.  i should have taken a picture and instagrammed that sucker.  but i didn't.  i just devoured it.

i will give you a new name

in our church, we are continuing with a series called "letters from Jesus," in which we are looking at the seven letters in the beginning of revelation addressed to seven churches in asia.  we are imagining what it would be like if we were to receive a hand-written letter from Jesus to our church.  what would it say?  how would we be encouraged?  how would we be challenged?  we've looked at three of the letters now.  this week we looked at the letter to the church in pergamum.  the letter to them includes some harsh criticism of some of their behavior, but it also says that Christ understands how difficult their situation is.  and in case they feel like they are stuck in their sinfulness, Jesus says something amazing to them:  i will give you a new name.  the world gives us so many names, doesn't it?  our parents, of course, give us our birth names.  but the naming doesn't stop there.  it continues right on through elementary school, high school, and into t

Milinovich Family Christmas, 2019

merry Christmas, yinz guys.  we've been marking our advent journeys with an annual video now for the last twelve years!  for this latest installment, we used the Tractors' version of "Run, Run Rudolph," as a metaphor for all of our running around, and i hope it shows that we've had a real blast this year, preparing for Christmas.  you'll see scenes from getting our tree, making cookies, concerts, impromptu dance sessions, making snowflakes, and much more.  enjoy. 

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day.
