Little gems are scattered throughout the blog’s archive. Dave might help us by indexing the contents of his blog (too much like work, I know). Here is an example:
For better or worse, these are the things I love: anticipating new beginnings; biblical theology; bird watching; the book of Psalms; bookstores (especially used bookstores); children; cigars; classic novels (especially sad stories for some reason); the comfort of belonging to Christ; a day at the beach; entertaining guests in our home; European cathedrals; a good intellectual debate with people I know well (and who are not prone to take offence); jeans and sweaters; Job 28; long nature walks; long naps; the migrant worker outreach which I am involved in during the summer; morning coffee; motorcycles (a love from my teenage years which I can’t shake); my academic endeavors; my church; my family—wife, daughter, son; old people; Psalms 32 and 139; random acts of kindness; research; Reformed theology; service singing (around the house, at church, in the shower, car, etc.); solitude; sweets; U2 (especially the vision of the world which comes out in there music—yes, I am a recent convert); the university atmosphere; watching my kids sleep; weekends with family; working with my hands (electrical work [I'm an electrician] or woodworking); the Wisdom Books of the Bible.
Dave’s use of alphabetical order is serendipitous, is it not?
I have a poetic workup of Job 28 near completion. Now I know if I finish it and post it, someone with whom I have a lot in common will take a close look at it.
