Christian Carnival 104 - The Random Edition

I always admire the time and effort that most hosts of the carnival take in putting together the posts for the week into creative categories. Ah yes, I admire them, but emulate them? Nah! Since the whole reason behind this blog is to allow me to randomly respond to what strikes me, I have decide to let someone (something) else decide the way this week's Carnival is listed. So I went over to and entered the chronologically received posts into the random sequencer and voila Christian Carnival 104...
