CD of the day:Silage - Vegas Car Chasers
Wow, what a productive month . . .
i mean really, TWO whole entries . . .
well it seems i have dropped the ball to some extent . . .
i do plan on trying to get back on it though . . .
i am settling into my new job, . . .
realizing the finality of our townhouse purchase . . .
and things should get into a rhythm soon . . .
and i intend for this to be a part of the rhythm . .
well, here's my thought for the day . . .
Timing is everything . . .
and everything is in God's hands . . .
this concept has been beating itself into my head the last month or so . . .
with my job, i would have loved to have jumped into this job a month or so ago . . .
and as i waited somewhat impatiently during the month of december . . .
doubts, worries, all kinds of stuff entered the picture . . .
and why, because i thought it should happen lickety split . . .
(like everything else down here) . . .
and God had some groundwork to lay in the meantime . . .
and i realize that sometimes God takes longer than i am comfortable with . . .
but He is still working . . .
and sometimes God moves a lot faster than i plan for . . .
like with the house, . . .
i was totally ready to look into buying a house this year . . .
except according to my plans, i was supposed to be looking at the end of this year . . .
and it hasn't been all that comforting running around, searching, with a small window of opportunity
trying to find the right house that fits the budget we hadn't accounted for yet . . .
see, i made plans, and prayed about them, . . .
and i was confident that they were solid plans . .
based on God's counsel . . .
well, God took me out of my comfort zone and made it happen lickety split . . .
which of course leaves me with the notorious questions . . .
why? how can this be right? what's up with that? . . .
you get the idea . . .
well what i've come up with is this . . .
God wants us to be uncomfortable . . .
even though, it makes me uncomfortable, . . .
that's not what His timing is designed to do . . .
God most certainly wants us to be comfortable . . .
but not in our plans, in His . . .
we need to be in our comfort zone only when we are trusting in Him . ..
we can make all the plans in the world . . .
and they can be great, righteous plans . . .
but the bottom line is . . . it's in God's hands . . .
only His will shall be done . . .
and He only wants what's good for His followers . . .
and that's comforting . . .
peace . . .
love . . .

CD of the day:Tammy Trent - Set You Free
okay, so i'm going to give homepage another shot . . .
and, with my new software, i should be able to put those touches on the site to make it look spectacular!!! . . .
but, then again . . .
it still may be a while . . .
i am serving out my final two weeks in the doldrums i have called work for the past few months . . .
surprisingly, since the word has gotten out, i think i'm ignored more . . .
(i had previously thought this impossible) . . .
anyway . . .
i also found out recently that my rent will be raised a ridiculous sum if we decide to stay there another year . . .
so more stuff to deal with . . .
anyway . . .
i've been so sparatic with my thoughts . . .
but i want to start a little discussion of "curse" words this week . . .
(that is, about curse words not strictly using curse words)
what makes a word "dirty" or "foul"?
i have often pondered that . . .
can any word in and of itself be "vulgar"?
(besides whether it is used by the elite of society or of the other, growing social classes, because that, is a totally different discussion) . . .
anyway, think about how a word aquires such a handicap as a label of curse or swear . . .
'til next time,
peace . . .
love . . .
