Verse of the week

"The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, and rescues them. O taste and see that the LORD is good; how blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!" -Psalm 34:7-8

This especially hit home for me. While experiencing some spiritual warfare, I found comfort in the fact that when I abide in Him, He is faithful to provide His angels to protect me and that I'm not going the battle alone in the spiritual realm. Of course, having fellow brothers to fight alongside is very helpful as well.

Cool Website This has got to be one of the coolest websites I've been to in a while. It allows you to map a running route and get the distance. I'm not 100% certain that the distances are entirely accurate but it at least gives you a nice ballpark figure rather than needing to drive a route with your car/bike. One very cool feature is the ability to save routes or search routes other people have created.

Georgia Aquarium

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to visit the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. It was very cool. Lots of fish of all different varities. They had penguins, sea lions, otters, pirahanas, enormous grouper (ie 500 pounds) that would stare out the aquarium directly at you. One highlight was the whale sharks. These creatures are enormous. I believe the ones that they had were about 16 feet long. Allegedly, they will grow up to 60 feet. They are the only known whale sharks which live outside the wild.

Duel in the Disposal

Last night after finishing a delicious ear of corn, I found the need to dispose of it. The garbage disposal presented itself as a natural option. So, I commenced placing the cob in said disposal turned on the water then flipped the switch to watch its demise. The cob wasn't planning on going down without a fight, however. Upon encountering the blades of the disposal, the cob began spinning, sputtering, and shooting water and bits of left over corn in my direction. Caught unawares, the need for protection became quickly apparent. I quickly grabbed a plate and used it as a shield from the corn projectiles being fired in rapid succession. Not one to be intimidated, I held my own and persevered till this nefarious opponent was finished.
