So, Congress approved the revised bailout bill.  I haven't been following the econoblogging so much this week 'cause I felt like in all my reading about the bailout &etc., I was comprehending and retaining so very little.

This amuses me.

Apparently it was Mountain Day today.

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, "I love God," yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.

-1 John 4:16b-21 (NIV)

mjules and I were talking about an assortment of things this morning, and spurred by agreement about the frustration of people not responding to the whole of what you're saying (we were not just talking about last night's VP debate) came this:

[10:12 AM] mjules: We should run for President/VP together. 
[10:12 AM] mjules: You could be President because I am so clearly not an Alpha type. *grin* 
[10:13 AM] me: :) I'm not certain I am either. 
[10:13 AM] mjules: Oh well. Maybe we'll share power.
[10:13 AM] mjules: Hey, they want a real change? Forget P/VP. We'll be Co-Presidents.
[10:14 AM] me: lol
[10:13 AM] mjules: I mean, I think we've got everyone's best interests at heart.
[10:13 AM] mjules: You're Christian, I'm not but I understand it... we're both excellent at thinking inside someone else's head... we're logical and conscientious and detail-oriented... I'm bigender so I've got the male interest thing going on while still being sensitive to women's rights... gay marriage would be de facto as of our first day in office... *laugh*


I actually got a CAUMC small group discussion writeup posted, for the first time since *checks* June.
