“When men feed on the word, it is turned into a principle of life, spiritual strength, and growth within; which a taste of it only will not give. As food, when it is digested, turns into flesh and blood and spirits, so doth the word, and Christ therein, unto the souls of men spiritually. Hence Christ becometh “our life,” and “liveth in us,” as the efficient cause of our spiritual life, Gal. 2:20; Col. 3:3; and we grow and increase by the word, 1 Pet. 2:2. A mere taste, though it may yield present refreshment, yet it communicates no abiding strength. Hence multitudes relish the word when it is preached, but never attain life, or strength, or growth by it.” (John Owen, The Works of John Owen vol. 7, 31)

Bowling and Pinball

At Cambrian Bowl

We bowl with the gutter gaurds up. At times the bowling ball is bouncing back and forth several times before hitting the pins. Are we bowling or playing pinball?! And it's always suprising when Claire throws the ball so slow that a crawling toddler would win the race, yet with hardly any movement, the ball manages to know nearly every pin to the floor. 

We had fun. I definitely recommend going to an old school bowling alley without any screens to distract. I can't stand the new places with darkened lighting, glowing pins, and screens across the wall. I feel as if I'm seeing double as I try to focus on the pins.
