I-deal birthday: wake up between nine and ten. Have a good breakfast. Read. Write. Snack. Hang out on the computer. Eat dinner. Play with Legos while listening to music, and then sitting in the recliner while watching Lord of the Rings or Sense and Sensibility. Go out to eat for supper, then rent a good action movie on the way home. Stay up till exactly twelve.
I-deal meal: on special occasions, Steak or Seafood. On normal days, Pot Pie or Gumbo. Side dishes should include corn, mashed potatoes, corn, okra or asparagus, corn, butter beans and some corn.
I-deal bar-b-que: lots of good food, maybe some home made ice cream and tea and lemonade. Sports would include ping-pong, football, volley ball, and Frisbee. When it gets dark, we should sit around a huge bonfire and roast marsh mellows and get very hot and sticky. When it gets even later, sit around a modest campfire and sing and fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ.

Tozer [for today]:
O God, be Thou exalted over all my possessions. Nothing of earth’s treasures shall seem dear unto me if only Thou art glorified in my life. Be Thou exalted over my friendships. I am determined that Thou shalt be above all, though I stand deserted and alone in the midst of the earth. Be Thou exalted above my comforts. Though it mean the loss of bodily comforts, and the carrying of heavy crosses, I shall keep my vow made this day before Thee. Be Thou exalted over my reputation. Make me ambitious to please Thee even if as a result I must sink into obscurity and my name b forgotten as a dream. Rise, O Lord, into Thy proper place of honour, above my ambitions, above my likes and dislikes, above my family, my health and even my life itself. Let me sink that Thou mayest rise above. Rise forth upon me as thou didst ride into Jerusalem, mounted upon the humble little beast, a colt, the foal of an ass, and let me hear the children cry to Thee, “Hosanna in the Highest.”
