I've listened to a LOT of Mark Driscoll lately. I loved his Q&A series where he spoke on the Emergent Church, Marriage, Birth Control, etc. Good stuff.

Oh wow! I needed that Jeremiah verse. Definitely a gift!

Did somebody say peanut butter cookies?

I love the emphasis on gratitude for small things. After getting over a cold that dragged on for weeks, I am grateful just to be able to breathe easily again.
