in the quiet

I'm a drifter.

my mind can never rest on one difinitive end. it's here or there or somewhere inbetween. this seems to happen mostly in the early hours of the morning while I'm trying to sleep... thought after thought after thought... drifting.

countless topics, random issues, not-so-random issues... they are always pestering me like a child who walks in on the middle of a movie and needs to know exactly what's going on (I know, because I still do this... right Doug?). So before I lose anymore sleep over it let me clear the mucky muck for you: I'm pissed off (sorry mom). I'm a pastor and I am publishing that...

I can't think of any better way to sum it up.

I'm not angry. I'm not mad. I'm just pissed (for the sake of the easily offended I will defer from using that word anymore in this post; I will now refer to it as P'd).

P'd that one insecure maniac would take the lives of 32 innocent college kids.
P'd that people sometimes just don't get it.... just don't get me... just don't get my good intentions.
P'd at divorce.
P'd at how selfish some people can be.
P'd about genocide.
P'd about AIDS in starving countries.
P'd about war.
P'd about parents who abuse their children.
P'd about wasted potential.

The list could go on.

When it's quiet I drift.

okay so I probably will still lose sleep whether I post this or not... it's just good to get it out there sometimes.

"we're all behind our baseball team"

My sister and I and a bunch of other people, most of whom I don't know, hopped on a charter bus and headed to Detroit to enjoy the Tigers take on the Chicago White Sox. It was a beautifl day for baseball! We got there about an hour and a half before the game started...

My sister and some others wanted to get a bite to eat, but I didn't want to miss out on the free replica championship ring giveaway, so I entered the park by myself and got my ring! Andrea got in too late and didn't get one since they only gave them to the first 30,000 fans. Anyway, For the next hour or so I wandered around the park... the first thing I saw was a kiosk where they were selling Tigers jewelry. They had a ring there that looked very much like the one I had gotten for free, some necklaces with Tigers charms, earrings, etc... the two most impressive items they had there was a Detroit Pistons 2004 Authentic Championship ring as well as Mike Illitch's actual 2006 American League Championship Ring...

This has been the second time I've been to this park now and I thoroughly love it. What a beautiful stadium. I wish I could go to more games more often, but it's a good 3 hour trip there and 3 more back...

Oh well... for now it will remain a very special treat when I am able to go... and I can't think of anyone else I'd rather go with than family! I'm happy my sister is a Tigers fan...
