When I see the audacity of Cooper (our two year old son) looking at me like I'm an idiot because I don't let him play with the lawnmower - I'm reminded of so many things.

I see people do it every day. I hear their theories on life/God/politics/Seinfeld and I can't help but think there's probably a bigger/better/smarter view out there.

Audacity is really the word. For Cooper to think he knows the best way for him to live his life - and at this point it involves the lawn mower - it's just silly. I can see that. You can see that. He can't see that...because he's not that smart. He's just not. It'd be weird if he was - he's 2 - he shouldn't be.

That's us. We think we've got God figured out. We think we know what's best for our lives. We all make decisions that must leave God thinking, "the audacity"

We can't see it. It'd be weird if we could. We're not God.
We're just not that smart. We're not.


  1. Speak for yourself. I have it figured out and it's all ball bearings these days.

  2. what kind of a name is poone?

    Woo Hoo! I agree with you!

    No one should think they have God figured out. I thought all of this time that you assumed God agreed with you and not with people who disagree with you.

    I feel much better. Thanks.
