Yesterday I watched Ernest and Celestine on Prime Video. It was delightful.
In 1912, Jim Thorpe had his shoes stolen before he competed for the gold in the Olympics. He found two mismatched shoes in the trash, made them fit by adding extra socks, and won two gold medals. You will never be that cool. But you CAN decide to do your best with what God has given you.
Doing your best with honor and dignity is a goal worth striving for.
Today I read this: “I’m sorry for all those who you loved that made you feel like loving you was hard work.” I remembered that time when someone made a speech in front of fellow elders and pastors that used the words, “I love everyone; but Sam Powell is hard to love.” I didn’t know that.
Every new morning, I wake up next to a beautiful and loving woman who never makes me feel like I’m hard to love.
In turn, she is quite easy to love. Love is like that.
When you decide that truth is an acceptable sacrifice to make for the survival of your system, you no longer have a system worth preserving.
When you decide that right and wrong are acceptable sacrifices to make for the survival of your system, you no longer have a system worth preserving.
Bob Seger is my guilty pleasure. My wife puts up with it.
I frequently hear that marriage is hard work and God will sanctify you through that hard work. I have no idea what that means. I have never once thought of marriage as “hard work.”
Speaking of marriage, housework, cooking and dishes have nothing to do with gender roles and have everything to do with being an adult.
A lot of men just need to grow up and learn how to act like adults.
When one is terrified of “losing their place and their nation”, they will do horrible things to each other.
But when your treasure, your place, and your kingdom is in heaven, and your life is hid in Christ at the right hand of God, you are set free to love.
