If you’ve never seen this wonderful, talented woman play drums, you are missing something great:
And, she’s got an infectious smile. 🙂
Happy Sunday everyone!
This quote from Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis came to mind during church Bible study today (as Jesus was accused of casting out demons by the power of Satan):
I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: “I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.” That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic—on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg—or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronising nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.
Something to ponder. Blessings all!

Michelle and I were able to visit the Denver Museum of Nature & Science today. Awesome place. The majority of the photos are from The Art of the Brick display.
This week’s favorites…
Yeah, trying to mostly avoid political ones as usual, it was a bit light for favorites this week…

Morality disconnected from religion is unanchored.
Or, would it be fair to describe it as its own capricious religion?
Okay, it’s really brunch, or almost lunch, at this point…
Accept the teaching of Christ as it is, clear and simple; then you will see that we live among big lies.
You can make a decision to have a good attitude, but if you don’t make plans to manage that decision every day, then you are likely to end up right back where you started. But here’s the good news: maintaining the right attitude is easier than regaining the right attitude.
How do you do that? A Chinese proverb I came across gives insight: “Assume a cheerfulness you do not feel, and shortly you feel the cheerfulness you assumed.” Or as editor and publisher Elbert Hubbard says, “Be pleasant until 10 a.m. and the rest of the day will take care of itself.” When you get up in the morning, you need to remind yourself of the decision you’ve made to have a positive attitude. You need to manage your thinking and direct your actions so that they are consistent with your decision.
Well, if I am going to post YouTube videos, this is one of my all-time favorites. The love Ralph and Jocylen Saenz have for each other is inspiring:
Okay, one more…another one of my all-time favorites (who knew a coin toss would lead to this?): Read More
This is the video that turned me on to this talented, fun group…
And, they are actually willing to smile. 🙂
No, that’s not me. Too much hair. But dad and son hang out on Friday nights, and son’s friend started gaming with him late. 🙂
Dad isn’t gonna make it much longer though…
Nibbles Ninja is part of the way I’m dealing with not having Facebook and Twitter as outlets. Here is why I left them:
This is the first post on Nibbles Ninja. I am Alan Fahrner, and I’ll use this site (generally) to post quick thoughts, quotes, etc.
This is the symbol for Nibbles Ninja:
And who knows, if you are interested and believe in balance too, you may become an author on the Nibbles Ninja too.
P.S. By “healthy dialogue is…colorful,” I do not mean foul language. Instead, views should be like a palette of many hues, tints, tones, and shades instead of an echo chamber.
