Whether we like it or not, we are all subject to the daily news cycle that can dominate and rule our lives. Even if we are able to ignore the news it can be hard to not engage with the events of life. I am finding myself in that position today. There are two news items that I find myself dwelling on in this moment. Both items are incredibly superficial and have no real effect on the things that matter most; my faith, my family and my life in Christ. At the same time, it is a bittersweet day for me as I think about these two events. The bitter comes from the Colts (that is the ridiculous Jim Irsay) cutting Peyton Manning whom I like and respect. It has me questioning my loyalty to the Colts. The sweet part of the day is another announcement of a new product or two from Apple. I know that its silly to be excited about that, but I just happen to enjoy the Apple culture. So here I sit, thinking about two things that do not really matter and are incredibly superficial, but I will be watching it all today with emotion nonetheless.
