And now for something different

Exams are over. Good feeling. First year over. Strange feeling.

Its late again and I should go to sleep. Went out for dinner tonight with Dad - to Maldini's which was delicious. Bit of an end of exams celebration!! Had a lovely lamb meal, and ended up sharing a tiramisu to finish. Still feeling full but it was delicious. Good way to end the semester - and nice to chat with Dad as well. Despite staying the last 2 nights with him I'd barely crossed paths!

For next few weeks at least, I'm working at the chemist, as well as some bits of sailing coaching, babysitting, cleaning and then fitting in socialising, reading, sleeping, and just being as well. And I'm writing a sermon for this week - 'reception of the king'. Tricky one - I don't want it to be boring and irrelevant. Was thinking about comparing the reactions of people to Jesus in his own time to reactions now - gets a bit wierd though reading stuff on internet about how people can prove the Jesus wasn't who he might be. But I guess thats where faith comes in - because it can't be proved entirely and no-one says otherwise, but there is reason to believe... Anyway it still needs more thought.

Today was Hamish's birthday. I haven't finished the 13 piece paper Hearse Playset for him... but I didnt' see him today either. I'll do some tomorrow before starting work at 11 and see how I go. Just need some dead flies to go in the miniature coffins (he asked for flies although may have intended fishing flies but ah well)

An attempt to improve that roundabout sentence... (I notice a typo as well as just plain convoluted!)
I was comparing reactions to Jesus by people then with people now. I found it slightly wierd reading a website that tried to prove that all the gospels were fabricated. However there is other evidence pointing towards gospels being true. To believe that Jesus not only existed, but was part of God (which is a pretty wierd concept) will require faith - belief even when there is not absolute proof.
