I have been thinking about faith lately and the whole mustard seed deal. I think I have finally come up with an understanding of the what Jesus was getting at, or at least something that sits really well with me. I find that if what the Bible asks of me is impossible to live out, then perhaps I am misunderstanding it. I realize that all is accomplished by grace, so let's just get that out of the way.
Now, back to the mustard seed thing. If my faith is as big as a mustard seed then I can throw a mountain into the sea, or something like that. So, I think the crux of it is whether or not I choose to believe in who God is and what He can do if He wants to, not how much I believe. The question is do I believe or not. There is either a mustard seed worth of faith or no faith at all. Somehow, this is easier.

For several seasons now, my friends and I have been watching The Bachelor. This season the best woman won the heart of the Officer and the Gentleman. Although we are fully aware of the disfunction of this show, it has provided hours of Monday entertainment and dramatic superlatives. Our pick from the first night (Tessa) walked away with the final rose and a sparkling precious.
