relationship status test

I was fondly reminded by Esther Kim who saw a post I wrote in my xanga awhile back. The post described how to distinguish a married couple from a dating couple. Enjoy yet another deep thought by yours truly.

Here’s a way to tell whether a man and a woman are a dating couple or are a married couple.

If they walk out of a store, and the guy is the one carrying the bags, then they are dating. If it is the woman who is carrying the bags, then you know that they are married. 🙂

It’s about time

deadbolt-remote Have you ever thought of something ingenuous and logical at the same time? Like when you come home with groceries or have other things in your hand and you could use that third hand. Or when it’s cold or raining and just don’t want to fiddle with the keys.

Finally, Black and Decker has come out with a remote wireless residential access control, or simply, a deadbolt remote (I’ve done some research and evidently, this is not a new innovation and has been out for some time — and I didn’t know about it!) This was something that I wanted to invent myself many years ago but hadn’t weighed all the benefits and risks yet. But seriously, it’s about time someone came out with this idea! It’d be great if the remote could also open the door, too. Ok, now I’m just getting lazy.  I want me one of those. I wonder how much something like this would cost? At what price would you say it’s worth getting?

Signs and Waiting

I found this excerpt in today’s devotional from Oswald Chambers’ “My Utmost For His Highest

‘There are not three levels of spiritual life— worship, waiting, and work. Yet some of us seem to jump like spiritual frogs from worship to waiting, and from waiting to work. God’s idea is that the three should go together as one. They were always together in the life of our Lord and in perfect harmony. It is a discipline that must be developed; it will not happen overnight.’

I’ve understood that work or school should be worship, but I didn’t think about waiting: waiting for God or for that something which you desire. That means that the time you spend waiting can be worship! It can be worship because you trust in His timing and you are obedient. And that means that waiting is not idle nor passive, but is an act of worship you can give to God.

Yesterday, I asked God for a sign about something that I was desperate to hear from God (which I usually don’t do).  I also asked God that I just needed to know “yes” or “no”, and I didn’t ask “when”. So, when God gave me a sign yesterday, I was grateful in just that answer and was okay with waiting. But this morning God spoke to me that I shouldn’t just be okay while I wait, but I should worship in my waiting, and not worshiping only when the wait is over.

Are you waiting [worshiping] God?

A painful lesson

Look at this little ball.

paintball

It is small, cute, and seemingly harmless, but looks can be deceiving. This ball can do this.

bruise

and this (on the wrist)

wrist wound

and much more in places that I cannot show. I underestimated those little suckers. It was a painful lesson to be learned.

But, maybe I didn’t learn my lesson afterall because I would definitely go again. Or maybe the lesson is to layer up with thicker clothes the next time I play paintball 🙂
