a real letter I really sent

Dear Jered and Julie,
You may find it strange that I decided to send you a ‘Happy Birthday’ card rather than the traditional ‘Happy Anniversary’ card. But allow me to explain.
Three hundred, sixty five and one quarter days ago the two of you- Jered Murphy [JM] and Julie Anthony [JA] were joined together before God. Genesis 2:24 gives us reasoning:
“…and they shall become one flesh”.
Though I don’t quite understand the process, I must confess that it is a God idea and worth our contemplation.
But this would lead any good physics student to wonder if God follows the laws of conservation of energy and mass. Since we don’t know this vital information, from here on out we will be purely speculative. If we assume God follows the conservation of mass and energy then we are led to believe that He will take the individual spirits and bring them together to form something twice as large as original. This idea is illustrated by sewing two pieces of fabric together. They will either be twice as long or twice as thick. But we must consider the following equation:
1JM + 1JA = 2JMJA

Is the resultant 2JMJA volumetrically double the individual volumes of 1JM and 1JA? What significance does this volume have? Would the combination hinder the individual activity and is the combination as efficient as they would be if separate?
But the trouble with this equation is that it forms a resultant unity that changes the overall distribution of spiritual proportion before God.
Let us consider the following equation assuming God does not follow conservation laws:
1JM + 1JA = 1JMJA

We can clearly see that this equation does not follow the conservation of mass and energy laws. But what it does keep intact is the spiritual proportion before God of all His people. But if the two become one then we are led to think you become half of the resultant spirit. We would be wise to consider where the missing volume of spirit has gone but will not do so here. We may also wonder if the lost volume means a loss of any specific trait.

When you look at this latter equation you see that you could remain fully individual and yet fully comprised of the other as long as the volume occupied were the same. And of course we will ignore the Pauli Exclusion Principle from here on out. Then the entity and personality that exists is a homogenous fusion of Jered and Julie. Thusly we could consider them one before God neither defying mass and energy conservation nor volumetric differences. This would be similar to storing one box within another of same volume and mass.
Heretofore the creation before God is new. It is a spiritual creation that had not previously existed in the reality of God. It was a unity that was created one year ago. We now celebrate its first year of existence. Existence in the sense that it was planned by God but remained hidden from the eyes of men until it’s time had fully come.
And so, one year ago today a new creation was formed before God and men. A spiritual entity that God has bound together, blessed and nurtured. So for this reason I forsake saying a typical ‘Happy Anniversary’ and instead wish you a Happy Birthday!

Portrait of a Sunday
I went to Church at First Church. I introduced my good friend Jon to my girlfriend. It was a great sermon. I went to Scott and Erica’s to chat about jobs with Scott while Erica and Heather talked in the house. We went to Middletown for beads, and here is the interesting story... We walked around and went to Javapalooza. After deciding on our drinks, which t ook a long time because the menu is a bit different, I walked over to the pick up while Heath went to get straws. An older man, say late 30's, looked at me for a few seconds and as I made eye contact asked me “So, are you a doctor?” You see, I was wearing my Dr. Pepper T-shirt. I made a few friendly comments, one of which was "I'm not a doctor" and another was a question if he was. He said he was a photographer. Heather scooted up to me and tucked in to make sure he could see her. He didn't even look at her but instead focused squarely on me. I remarked on how Heather is an artist and I'm a physicist. I announced her by name for some reason so to even it out I said goodbye by introducing myself. He stood to shake my hand and I said nice to meet him. We speculated that he may have been hitting on me and that he may have been gay if, in fact, that was what he was doing.itting on me. I never know how to react in those situations. Was he really flirting with me or were his actions just creating a friendly but awkward atmosphere causing me to jump to this false conclusion? When we were walking out and I said how I am a Doctor...or maybe it was Heather... but it arose that I am Dr. Adventure, bringing fun and excitment to all those in need.
And think, we just went out for beads. Getting hit on was an added bonus. I dont even remember his name. But I'm glad he didnt ask me for my number.
