snow day

so it snowed here on Thursday, i was pretty excited until i turned on the news to find that our parish and school who follow the public school policy of days off were not closed to to incliment weather! peaved until like 4th hour and we were outside at 6am! so that is like 5 hours of peavishness?! anyway, check out the fun times my kids has at my wifes blog; www.lastrapeslegacy.blogspot.com she took some great pics and i have to say that i am pretty happy my kids got to see some snow even if it was .40 inches compared to the 8" that southeast la recieved! anyway, snow is fun and cool to see on your car esp when within one week of said snow day, the temps are in the upper 70's! snow yeah, snow day yeah, snow day and go to work boo!

Quotation Monday

I could not decide on which one to post so I posted two!!


"Like all major religions of the world, Christianity is more than a set of devotional practices and a moral code: it is also a way of thinking about God, about human beings, about the world and history. For Christians, thinking is part of believing. "

Robert Louis Wilken
The Spirit of Early Christian Thought


Which led to this next quote:


"No one believes anything unless one first thought it believable....Everything that is believed is believed after being preceded by thought....Not everyone who thinks believes, since many think in order not to believe; but everyone who believes thinks, thinks in believing and believes in thinking."

Augustine
Predestination of the Saints

I am not exactly sure how I feel about the first quote --for some reason it just does not sit right with me; I think it is his use of the phrase "like all major religions of the world". I might be a little gun shy of post modern thought and how it seeps in where we least suspect. Anyway if you have a thought on the first quote let me know what you think, if you think I am loco let me know that too!
