10-3

wow, that has a nice ring to it, right?  ten and three.  last year at this time we were busy losing to the bengals and browns and raiders and chiefs.  not this year.  after the bitter taste that last season must have left in their mouths, they seem to want it more than the opposing team each week, no matter how dead set that team is on beating us. 

like the bengals, who put up a pretty good fight, at least to start.  they looked like a team hellbent on being the spoilers to the steelers' playoff party, but ultimately, the steelers showed that they wanted it more.  it came in the form of troy polamalu's miraculous and super-human pick six, and then it just concentrically widened from there.  the steelers would not be denied by these injury-hampered bungles (not that the steelers aren't facing a laundry list of injuries themselves).  at 10-3, the steelers look to be in pretty good shape to lock up the second seed of the afc playoffs, but they have to keep taking care of business these last three weeks.  this week the struggling and frustrated new york jets come to town.  should be another knock out fight.  here we go!

on with the pics.

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. 

The Broken Path: the stations of the cross - Station 1

  during this season of lent, at the church i serve, we've been talking about brokenness.  we've been looking at the ways that our journey is often a broken journey, full of missteps, sidetracks, and dead ends.  and yet, we have been seeing, as clearly as ever, that those broken places are exactly the same places where grace grows.  the cracks are where the light shines through.   so, as a way to continue to reflect on this brokenness, the worship team thought we might do an art installation outside, on the church property, of the stations of the cross, but in a way that expressed not only the brokenness of Jesus' body and journey to the tomb, but also the brokenness of our world and our hearts.  using something i made several years ago, i thought we might be able to use old windows and broken glass to help tell the story.   so, in the end, i made eight separate stations of the cross, each one on an old window that came from an old farmhouse in bellefonte.  i used broken g

State College to Birmingham

 as some of you know, i have been working towards a goal i set at the beginning of 2020 of running 1000 miles in one calendar year.  today is the last day of september (what?!?), and so that means the year is 3/4 of the way complete, which means i should be right around the 750 mile marker.  however, i am doing better than that, as my 5 mile run today put me at 847 miles for the year, almost 100 miles ahead of schedule!  i am feeling great, enjoying the journey, and experiencing a real sense of accomplishment as i work towards this goal.   i have also enjoyed these little milestones along the way, just to see how far i've come.  as it turns out, 847 miles from State College (along the roads, not as the crow flies) would have me arriving in Birmingham, AL, right about now!  not too shabby!  only about 150 to go!
