Dinosaurs in the bible and days out on the town


A lot of my friends and family tend to ask the question of how we like Austin now that we have lived here for a while. Well, it’s fantastic. There seems to be a festival or shop expo every single weekend. This weekend we went to craft sale downtown because we knew that these sewing ladies were going to be there. They are called Fort Lonesome and they do this thing called chain stitching. It was pretty cool and is done with this vintage looking machine. We went to the event because we knew that they were going to be there. I got the bible verse Job 40:15-25 because… well… dinosaurs. That’s why.  Verse 24 makes me think of a triceratops of all the behemoths. Boom!!!

Job 40:15-24 King James Version (KJV)

Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron. He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him. Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play. He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens. The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about. Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth. He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.

This week is finals week, so I have a lot going on. But that aside, Sarah randomly stumbled upon a house that she loved and just for the heck of it we decided to go to the bank and see what they would say. And boom, just like that we are pre-approved. Now the looming question is what to do. So many variable exist. Do we want to get a lot and build a small home for the sake of yearly life expenses. Or do we want to get a retro swingers pad with high walls, windows, and hot tubs? Or… do we do nothing and just chill? We could get into a home and start putting out money toward an investment. We could go minimal and live lazy part time job lives. Or we could sit tight and keep renting with the intent of moving off to bigger and better places in the not so distant future. So many questions. So many variables. Sarah already knows my stance it naturally toward minimalism. She did after all meet me when i was living in a car. Maybe we will go big or go home. Maybe we will meet in the middle and go little.

That’s life for you.
