Marilyn's Sourdough Flapjack

Wow. It looks like Christian's dog Jack has had some quality bonding time with Master Aegidius. Interesting how the perspective seems to vary - through Jack's eyes, and then through Uncle Jake's.

This in not in response to this posting, rather the fact that you chose the father from The Incredibles as your profile picture. I once heard a minister comment on a parallel between Christians and the superheros in that movie. Having such incredible world saving powers yet forced to live in hiding, persecuted by outside forces who did not understand the significance and necessity of their strengths.
I enjoy the way your mind works and the way you allow the Lord to work through you. Any thoughts?
God bless you and your ministry.

Well, I wish I could say I am a Christian superhero, but unfortunately I'm not.

Lyrics from Derek Webb's "Crooked Deep Down" come to mind at this point:

my life looks good i do confess,
you can ask anyone,
just don’t ask my real good friends
because they will lie to you,
or worse they’ll tell the truth

Ah, that pretty much nails me...

So why the Incredibles? Aside from the fact that I like calling my wife 'Elastigirl', we just enjoyed watching the movie as a family - we loved the humor, we appreciated the fact that all the incredibles have their oh-so-normal-flaws (like Mr. Incredibles increasing waistline and decreasing hairline), and then it occurred to us that since all of us have our own blogs... "Shazam! We can all be Incredibles!" :-)

So that's kind of how it came about. Nothing particularly spiritual about it, other than taking a good hard look in the mirror and inviting others to laugh along with us at what we see there.

Hope that doesn't shatter too many images of our saintliness...
