    For the boys asking why people do what they do, remind them that sometimes we don't always know why WE do what we do, it's the same with people in the Bible. As for Judas, some of the more kind theories suggest he betrayed Jesus to force Jesus' hand so he would have to reveal himself as The King. Most of the disciples didn't believe the Messiah could really be killed (even Peter), and the theory suggests Judas was tired of waiting. I don't agree with this theory, as there is little in the gospels to support it. There are clues, however. The Gospel of John is the most critical of Judas; whenever he is mentioned John always throws in there that he was the one who betrayed Jesus. Once a different Judas is mentioned, and John is careful to point out this was not the Judas who betrayed the Lord. When the woman anointed Jesus' feet with oil before his trial and crucifixion, the Disciples objected because of how much the oil cost (it's equivalent to someone's life savings). In Matthew 26 immediately after that story it says Judas went to the chief priests to find a way to betray Jesus. John's gospel (chapter 12) points out Judas himself was the one who objected, not because he cared about the poor, but because he was in charge of the money and was embezzling. In the next Chapter John says Satan had entered into Judas. My own interpretation is that Judas' greed is what left him open to the influence of the enemy.

    Elastigirl: Just keep plugging along

    My comment about the third hobbit movie is that we were promised the battle of five armies. What we got was a bunch of 1v1 main character battles.

    I don't know what you're worried about, 4 weeks is plenty of time to complete 7 miles

    That's just wrong. If you are using a credit card every month and paying it off regularly that is all you need. Revolving credit without a balance (what you are doing with your card) is a good indicator. Paying off the car is good in your case. Don't take advice from someone young without a good credit score. Besides, any temporary dings to your credit would be gone by January.

    I don't think you can embed those videos from IMGUR, you'd have to upload it to youtube to embed.

    Pack. Move. Unpack: Tanktimus Relocates Forum Headquarters

    Soon, we are still unpacking. We are at 32 weeks. Birth center for the birth, no drugs. This will help. https://www.enneagraminstitute.com/type-descriptions the titles of each type are links. Does my water softener make you feel nostalgic? Today is a good day. Grocery shopping in the morning, then unpacking after lunch (which we had at home). We put closet things in their appropriate closets in the guest room and office, then set up the furniture in each. Everything in the house is now set up furniture wise (Still need to get furniture for the nursery). We still need to do wall decorations/knick knacks/empty boxes all over the house, but the furniture is done. Dinner was rice with butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar and a little garlic powder. Also some frozen stir fry veggies cooked in my cast iron skillet with soy sauce, rice vinegar and garlic powder. There was also beef cooked in the same manner, with ground ginger added. The meat and veggies were combined and dressed with black bean garlic sauce. It was very good.

    Fixed. I believe in the Oxford Comma. The omission was an error, not deliberate.

    After reading Doug's comments and thinking about it, having the car paid off makes it EASIER to buy a home, because your debt to income ratio is better.

    Are those people telling you not to pay off your loan wealthy? If they are not winning with money, I would discount their advice. I know Dave Ramsey would tell you pay off the car, especially if the interest on the car loan is more than the interest you are earning. ESPECIALLY if you can re-save that money by January, for goodness sake pay off the car and have one less debt.
