What I’m Into Right Now – April 2018

Typically, I write these posts on the 1st of the month but Easter this year fell on April 1st.  That meant Easter Sunrise service in the cemetery to start the day… a little napping throughout the day… and a little time spent working on an April Fool’s prank video.

By the time all that was all done, I was tired and uninspired.  But fear not! I’m back with another monthly installment of some of the things I’m digging right now.

What I’m Into Right Now – April 2018

Cinnamon Bears – Sure, we’re coming off a time of Easter chocolates, jelly beans, Peeps, Peeps, and Cadbury Creme Eggs… but one of my favorite candies of all time is Cinnamon Bears. A few weeks ago my wife got me a 2-pound bag and I’ve been working my way through it just a few bears at a time.

Lime Water – This isn’t some new fancy drink you can buy at the corner convenience store. I’ve simply been adding a quick squeeze of lime juice concentrate to my ice water. We ended up with an extra plastic lime full of juice at home so I took one to keep in my work refrigerator.  It’s funny how just a little lime has me drinking more water.

Deception – I’ve always been a fan of magic shows… but this ABC TV show is a different kind of magic show. It features a magician who is helping the FBI solve crimes… in hopes they can help him exonerate his twin brother who was framed (and convicted) for murder. It’s equal parts magic, comedy, action, and drama.

Drunk Girl – This Chris Janson song isn’t getting much radio play (yet) but I really love this song… for both the music and the content. With a title like “Drunk Girl”, you might think this is an upbeat party tune.  Actually, it’s a stripped down, piano-heavy tune about a guy who does the right thing. If I had teen boys I’d play this song to them as an example of what a true gentleman would do.

Throat Coat Tea – I’ve been fighting a cold lately that’s given me a sore throat which can be an occupational hazard when you have a daily 5-hour radio show to do. This tea not only tastes great but it really soothes a sore throat.

Weekly Verse – A Scripture On Repeat

Another Holy Week is almost over.  Several times over the past few days I’ve found myself listening to a playlist of songs that help me focus on the importance of the week.

I’ve also looked up and read (and re-read) many of the Holy Week scriptures you’d expect. The one that stuck with me the most this year was Romans 10:9 NIV.

“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Perhaps the reason I kept coming back to this verse is the way my mind broke it down… almost to the point of oversimplification.:

Say it. Believe it. Recieve it.

This Easter morning as we walk to and from our Church’s outside, cemetery, sunrise service I’m sure that phrase will be on repeat in my mind… and I’m fine with that.

Do you have a favorite Holy Week scripture?
