A Clear Vision – 12/18/2012

JOURNAL:  On my way to work yesterday morning, it began to drizzle a little.  It was not drizzling enough to be able to turn the wipers on even at the longest delay without getting that wiper scraping sound but enough that it required me to manually turn the wipers on randomly as needed.  This is the most annoying kind of rain to me. 

Mc What? – 11/25/2011

JOURNAL:  Last Sunday, my wife and I had gone to church. We went to the 2nd service and there were a lot of people moseying around. (disclaimer…”moseying” is in no way, meant to be an insinuation or suggest likeness in any way to the animal known as the “cow”. Any further thoughts in this direction would be of course, “utterly” ridiculous) Like normal, there was a good crowd by the coffee, hot chocolate and donuts area.

Wait Just a Cotton Pickin' Minute - 12/18/2012

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  Yesterday, I thought of the phrase I had heard and used before throughout my life, "Wait just a cotton pickin' minute."

Then I thought..."Cotton pickin' minute??? What exactly is that and how does is differ from a regular minute? Is it longer or shorter than a regular minute or is it the same time frame with a fluffy, warm, shrinkable attitude??? Or is some completely different kind of animal?"

Second Chance Popcorn - 9/23/2012

JOURNAL:  Some people have what is referred to as a “sweet tooth” but my wife has a “popcorn tooth.”  She loves popcorn but not the microwave kind.  Her brand preference is Orville Redenbacher's gourmet popcorn (O.R.G.P.

I Choose Meat - 9/25/2012

SHORT THOUGHTS:  This morning I made lunch for my daughter Shelby and me. I made sandwiches but I keep everything separate until lunch time so nothing gets soggy.

So I had a container with bread, one with mayo and a baggy with lettuce in it and out the door I went being very happy with my organizational skills.

Only With God - 10/5/2012

dave_sun_300_300SHORT THOUGHTS:  On my own, I am so inadequate in so many areas of my life. I make mistakes, I stumble, I fall, I get up and repeat the process.

Who Do We Think We Are…Anyway??? - 10/10/2012

JOURNAL:  I think most of us have had times when we have been disappointed with God. A time when we felt like He let us down somehow. Maybe it was due to something we wanted so badly and prayed so hard for and then in the end, it did not happen. Or maybe it was due to something we didn't want to happen very badly and we prayed so hard that it would not, only to have it roll over us like a steam roller. Maybe it was a marriage or relationship that failed or never came to be.

King James Editor - 12/13/2012

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  So I think I have a "King James" editor on my android smart phone.  No kidding.  Denice and I have the exact same phone and only mine does this.

Almost every time I type in or swype in the word, "YOU," it will auto-correct it to "THOU."  It is the crazies thing and it drives me crazy.  How do I at least upgrade this to NIV?

Thoughts?  Comments?  cheeky

Dress for Success - 10/29/2012

SHORT THOUGHTS:  In the verses below, I find it interesting that it is totally our choice as to what we put on, how we will interact and ultimately, to what people will see. The verse is asking us to do something very specific, suggesting that we choose to put on these things, much like we choose our outfits before going out the door to work or school or wherever, dressing appropriately. And in that, the choice is still ours to “put on or not to put on”...or maybe to put on something else entirely different.
