7 Kuik Takes Friday - Brought to You by the Letter "K"



--- 1 ---
 
This month I am participating in an A to Z Blogging Challenge, and today’s letter is K. So today's Quick Takes will have themes that begin with...[drumroll, please]...K!  (...Some of these will legitimately start with K and others might be a little forced.... But it's my blog. I can do what I want. Ain't nobody the boss of me, and all that jazz.) Please note: I realize my type style/size/color is all messed up  and inconsistent in this post. Still figuring out the formatting...please overlook it this time! :)

Kanine Update: Want to know what I find funny? My dog likes things that smell good. I bought some new vanilla verbena bubble bath and used it today and he would not get away from the tub, and kept whining wanting in. Then he kept sniffing my hands afterward. I think he likes it when I burn candles, too. He also went for his first walk last week. At first he did not like the leash at all, but I left it slack and called him (letting him choose to come) and pretty soon he got the hang of it. He didn't know what to think of the cars that passed by us; he would stop and watch each time. And of course he didn't want to go back inside at the end. We are both looking forward to more Spring-like weather!
Is he not the preciousest thing you've ever seen?!

The Kat: is still jealous. (Not that she doesn't get plenty of attention too.) Don't be fooled, though; they get along better than they want me to think. When one of them gets bored he/she goes looking for the other to start a slapping fight. :)

Homiletics/ApoKalyptic Preaching: Now, you might think I spelled that wrong, but I didn't. In Greek it's a "K", not a "C". Anyway...that is the title of one of the classes I am taking this semester to finish up my MDiv. And today was a preaching day - half the class presented their 3rd sermon from their 3-part series due for the class. One of my classmates, Adam Rodrigues preached this message from Revelation 20 called "Stupid Choices." It was an awesome word, and spoke to me right where I am right now, and I asked him if I could post it. He said yes, so here it is!

Killin' Time: is over. No, seriously. My master's research is due two weeks from today. I'm not going to tell you how far along I am with that.... But I will tell you I have my resources prepared in labeled stacks and my bibliography done. 
But that's all I'm going to say.

Kuik Takes (see what I did there?) Host Needs Prayers: Congratulations to Jennifer Fulwiler of Conversion Diary (the host of 7 Quick Takes) on having her 6th child this week! He is currently in the NICU and the logistics are pretty stressful, so please join me in praying for baby's health, mama's health, and family's routine to get back to "normal" as quickly as possible.

Knockin' on Heaven's Door: Last week I purchased a ticket to go see Bob Dylan live on April 24th!! So excited!!! Here is one of my favorite Bob Dylan songs ("Lay Down Your Weary Tune") (I couldn’t find a video of him actually singing this song, so here is the best cover I came across):
 
The first copyright date on this song is 1964. Did you know that there came a time when Dylan experienced a serious conversion to Christianity and recorded three Christian albums? The first was Slow Train Coming in 1979; the second was Saved in 1980; and the third was Shot of Love in 1981. I haven't heard any of them, but I want to check them out. I saw an article that said his most recent album reflected his Christian faith, too. Interesting.

  2. After my husband passed away my cat who was then 12 years old and diabetic was a real comfort, she would come sit on my lap and put her paws around my neck. A pet can fill a lonely person's life with pleasure. Great post.

    Yvonne,

  3. I never knew Dylan did Christian music. I'm sure picking up a lot of tidbits in this blog hop.

  7. What an interesting post...I like how you sneaked all those 'K's in there! Good for you for getting your MDiv. Sometimes I dream of going back to school... and I think I would like Bible School! It's one thing I wish I had done after graduation eons ago!
    Love your little dog! I often think about getting a dog. I think Buddy the Cat might be a bit miffed, but like you said, they probably actually like each other more than they let on!
    Thanks for reading my blog!
