I finished reading C. S. Lewis’ book “Mere Christianity” today. Go and do ye likewise. There is some incredible insight into Christianity, especially considering that Lewis was a former atheist.

I kept worrying that Santa was going to come trudging across the Tundra of this book to ruin the whole thing just like he did in the movie of Lewis’ book The Chronicles of Narnia. He didn’t. I was happy. Was anybody else totally cheesed by the whole Santa scene in that movie?

Want to hear a story?

There once was a boy who’s parents told him not to play with fire. He played with fire. It burned him. The boy decided he wasn’t interested in such cruel parents and decided that there’s no such thing as parents.

The end.

This past Saturday we celebrated my Grandpa’s 80th birthday. The entire family was there. It was awesome. I don’t think I’ve seen all those people in the same house at the same time since I was a kid. It was a very happy day. We laughed all day long. We Johnsons consider ourselves quite the witty lot.
