What I write when I don't know what to write...

I have lots and lots of random thoughts. Unfortunately I can't think of anything right now. I went shopping today. There was a sign that said "A lucky for your baby" on the wall. That is fairly par for the course. There were some wallets with wierd words on them. Yeah, there you go. Sorry.

Refining, Molding, Pruning

But Thou art making me, I thank Thee, sire.
What Thou hast done and doest Thou knows't well.
And I will help Thee; gently in Thy fire
I will lie burning; on Thy potter's wheel
I will whirl patient, though my brain should reel.
Thy grace shall be enough the grief to quell,
And growing strength perfect through weakness dire.
--George MacDonald

Imagine buying your pant size to not only accomodate your own waistline but also your handgun.

Lord, break the chains that hold me to myself; free me to be your happy slave--that is, to be the happy foot-washer of anyone today who needs his feet washed, his supper cooked, his faults overlooked, his work commended, his failure forgiven, his griefs consoled, or his button sewed on. Let me not imagine that my love for You is very great if I am unwilling to do for a human being something very small.

You know how kids in the States will say jinx when people say something at the same time and then the kid who didn't say it first has to be quiet until someone says his name. Well, here, girls cut way past all that sort of mundane life and just get to the important parts of life. Instead of saying jinx, they tug the hair near the face and whoever tugs first will have a more handsome husband. Yeah, talk about serious from the start! At this rate however, my husband, if I ever have one, is doomed to be ugly unless I can catch on and start tugging whenever I get the opportunity.

Things that I suddenly understand better.

Do you know how in the Bible it talks about people putting up little stacks of rocks to be a memorial? Well, strangely enough, little stacks of rocks really do make you ask "What are those there for?"

Bathsheba bathing on the roof was scandalous!

Those passages in Isaiah where it talks about desert and dust... they are really real.

Shepherds live in huts out in the middle of nowhere... kind of like Abraham and all that.

Sometimes it is not worth trying to come up with explanations for things, but other things call out for a reason to have existed. The only thing I can think might have happened here is some guy who wanted to make ketchup bought a honey factory and instead of changing the machine from making honey bears to making ketchup bottles he just filled the machine with red plastic and filled the red plastic bears with ketchup. Thus resulting in ketchup being sold on the shelves in bottles that look strangely like honey bear bottles. How else could you explain? What do bears and ketchup have to do with each other?
