Seven Sevens

You got me Gummster. (HT: Still Reforming)

Seven things to do before I die:

1. Visit Ireland
2. Finish my Biblical Counseling training through CCEF.
3. Learn Latin and teach it to my kids.
4. Learn to listen more than I speak.
5. Talk about Jesus as naturally as I do about U2, coffee, and my kids.
6. Publish a book
7. See my grandkids walking with Christ.

Seven things I cannot do:

1. Read IKEA assembly diagrams.
2. Not check e-mail.
3. Take my vitamins every day.
4. Turn the TV off while "something good" is on.
5. Stop being dorky.
6. Get my blog listed on PCA blogs. Help anyone?
7. Stop drinking coffee.

Seven things that attract me to my spouse:

1. Her love for Christ. She's more reformed than I am!
2. She quotes movies better than I do!
3. She's a blogging fiend.
4. The way she engages our kids intellectually and spiritually.
5. Her lack of "agenda" for me. She's waiting for me to grow into the husband she deserves.
6. Her love for me
7. Her love for the church. She sees Her beauty when I can't.
