I apologize for the commercials that are in this clip – 17 minutes 55 seconds – worth every minute if you ask me
you have to be careful with those basketballs you know….I remember watching Three Stooges early on Saturday mornings when I was a young child and usually my dad would be up by then also and would watch them with me – I still laugh at them. Good stuff indeed – good marks as well.
So that is a video by the Talking Heads titled “Burning Down the House”. I heard a story on the radio this morning – it seems there had been an ongoing feud between two neighbors and one of them did not like the length of their neighbors grass. So what did the other neighbor do? Broke a window at that house poured gasoline in the house and ignited the gasoline and successfully burnt the house down. Now that seems a little extreme to me. I have heard of (and even done this) burnt the grass in my yard (its a little late for that now however). Police are looking for the arson suspect currently. One of the lessons here I think is lets be a little more careful with our actions – lets try to think them out a little better okay? This will be a good mark for all of us I promise.
NIV Romans 8:38-
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
(Paul wrote this book in case you dont know)
I’m with Paul – this is some really good stuff!!!
This is a song from 1952. We all know that prices change, usually they increase over time. Economics would call it supply and demand. Price matching is another term you will hear often. I was thinking about changing prices this morning and quickly realized that I am thankful the price for my salvation has been paid in full. I am thankful also the price for any one of us to gain this salvation has not and will not change – ever. That is a good mark indeed.
Matthew 9:16-17: “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse. Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”
So I wonder what if your wineskin is old – perhaps it could only hold old wine. More to come…..
I’m sure I am a chicken on certain things – but moving on….While what the Chicken and Mr. Tofu are saying is true – it often is not an option – I will sometime soon hopefully be able to let the cats out of the bag with all of this – just not yet – and with everything right now choosing to not make a choice is simply not an option for me. Keeping my head down and to the grindstone – good marks.
Ok sure – I picked that picture because I like the railroad tracks – but I think it is also a true quote. Often times it seems that anticipation and worry go hand in hand – now I believe we are not to worry about anything where anticipate more means to expect or predict something. I am only very slightly worried about the roads ahead of me right now – I do anticipate certain options more than others – big changes for sure – more to come on this story. And oh by the way, its good marks indeed.
While I do enjoy eating a banana every so often I think I will pass on those. They look a little soft to me. Too soft actually. You could say that they are stale. The dictionary says stale is “no longer fresh or pleasant to eat….” I wonder if our jobs can become stale? Is it okay if that happens? Something to think about….
I imagine this will burn off with an hour or two, the tiredness Im plaqued with at the moment. I dont get it – I slept well last nite, I was in bed on time. Why am I so tired right now? Possibly it could be that there is a rather high level of potential change brewing in my life right now (more later I promise) and it may be starting to take a physical role on me. But thats okay – because I know someone who is much stronger that any of this stuff and he is my friend and he is here with me right now. His name is Christ. He always helps me – I couldnt do it alone. Thank you Christ.
Iron by definition is the chemical element with the symbol Fe (from Latin: ferrum) and atomic number 26. It is also the most common element (by mass) forming the planet Earth as a whole, forming much of Earth’s outer and inner core. Now thats the science side of the story. I know iron as a strong metal. There is much media right now about a man supposedly made out of iron, as his name is Iron Man. Yes I saw the new movie Iron Man 3 this weekend – I had to preview it as my son and all his friends want to see it. So he is a superhero with all types of abilities and skills to save the world. While watching it yesterday I was thinking – Iron Man, superhero, save this, save that….to be honest I was not all that impressed with it as I know someone who is stronger than all the superheros combined. You may know this person as well. The name is Jesus. He never starred in a movie although they have been made about Him. He did die a physical death on this earth, was buried and rose from the grave three days later though. Please dont forget He did that for you and me. You do know him right? I hope you do. Its the best mark you can have.
