Well the year is almost over. It’s exciting. It’s time to come up with next year’s goals. What are your goals? I’m in the process of coming up with mine. Hopefully some good stuff will happen this year, Lord willing. ^_^
I’m thankful for parents who love their children. Too many children are killed today. And many parents just want to get their children out of their hair for most of the year and groan about having them home during the summer. So it seems parents who really love their children and want to be around them are becoming increasingly rare.
Laughter is medicine to the soul. And I think that phrase is generally true. It means you can find the humor in life. You can find the fun in the midst of the roughest times. Sure, we can all be in good humor during the good times. But how about the bad times? Are you still happy? Are you still joyful? Or are you stressed and your hair is falling out? ^_^
Where are you planning to be over the next coming years? What’s your vision? Do you just go with the flow? Or do you have a plan?
Why is modern day evangelicalism built on a Christianity that seems to ignore passages like Psalm 88? I’m not sure.
Time is a great teller. It shows us the way one’s life is headed. That’s why making a decision on who someone is by a couple of isolated data points can be unwise.
Do you produce an aroma that involves the fruit of the spirit in your online persona?
Today I’m thankful for Ray. He’s a wonderful friend. We’ve done many projects together. Stayed up late, gone crazy. And it’s his birthday “tomorrow”/today ;-P.
I’m reminded continually how important good friends are. Many people I know get angry and stomp away like little children whenever a little blip goes on in their radar that’s hurtful. But having a friend who you can yell at, fight with in the mud, and yet still come out friends on the other side is what life’s all about. And that’s the friends that I want to have. There’s too many friendships that have one little piece of trash thrown in the mix and suddenly you’re all up in each other’s faces trying to shoot each other on blogs, gossip columns, etc. I’m tired of it and am thankful for the friends God has blessed me with. And I pray I will be a good friend as well and will be willing to slog through the sloughs with them. As well as enjoy the good times. ^_^
Sometimes life throws curve balls at you. What do you do with them? Freak out? Focus? Get smart? Get mad? Get happy? Give up?
