Seriously- I have started a lot of blog posts and not posted them.  The odds that I'll actually post this?

Who knows...

I've been dealing with a lot of odds and probability lately- in fact- I dealt with them for about 2 hours today as I scrambled to get my math homework done, which is still not finished, but I only have a few more to go, SO here I am.

Fall break is coming up,  (for the kids, not me or Josh!) which means I'm going to have 5 rambunctious kids in the house for 2 weeks.  If any of you loyal readers find yourselves with time on your hands- let me know, and we'll get together.

I have been reading a book lately with my dear friends called "Give Them Grace" It's sort of a parenting book, but also a book about dealing with people in general.   It's a good book, although I don't fully agree with the authors point of view on every minute detail, it delivers a good message.

I have been thinking a lot about what it really means to be a Christian.

Perhaps because my 3 year old asked me why Jesus had to die on a cross
Perhaps because I have 5 kids (which spawns much introspection)
Perhaps because I have been reading the above mentioned book, and realize I fall very short of giving grace
Perhaps because I have been listening to FOX News on occasion, and realize those people are certainly not acting like Christ- (yet many of them would say they are Christians...why?)  {give grace?}

And since I need to set the table for dinner, I will post this.

What are your ideas?  What does it really mean to be a Christian?
