There are many important dates in my life. Such as Maya's birthday, our wedding anniversary etc. This past week Two very important dates have come and gone. The first date was Sunday January 28, 2007, Daniel's birthday. That's right, he turned 26 this past weekend. We celebrated on Saturday by taking him to the BYU-Air Force game at the Marriot Center. Then I made dinner for everyone at our place and ended with cake and ice-cream, of course. I was just thinking about how important to me this date was. I mean, Daniel was born on this day. This is going to sound pretty funny, but thanks to his mom and dad, I was able to meet and marry the most wonderful and silly guy in the whole world!
The second very important date was Monday January 29, 2007. My mom and dad celebrated their "silver" anniversary (25 years!). I can't believe it has been that long, but I am so proud and happy for them. Some of you may not know, but just a couple of years ago, my parents had their marriage blessed by the Catholic Church. It was something they had wanted to do, but just didn't get to it. I was very happy for them because that was something I had wanted for them since the time I knew that it was important to have your marriage through the Church. Now they can fully participate in the worship and they have grown closer as a couple. This date is very important. Again, this is going to sound silly, but I wouldn't be here if they hadn't gotten married. I am thankful for them and I love them!
Now with all those cheesy shout-outs out of the way, I ran into this Far Side comic. I thought it was interesting in light of the philosophy of religion class I had last semester. I wanted to post this up and see what you all think. Does God have specific and exhaustive foreknowledge? And how do we reconcile that with human free will? Tell me what you guys think!
