Last weekend, when the Samson-like strength was departing (it headed back to the Lord around Thursday-ish) i noticed that a neighbor had a trailer-load ('bout 1/2 a cord) of neatly stacked firewood for sale, and somehow i knew it would be rather overpriced - never mind the man works hard and is no longer young. Anyway, there was a rather smug air surrounding that just-ever-so trailer of wood. But i didn't care. i considered buying it but what stopped me was : having to stack it. So i prayed that the man's wood would be purchased by somebody whose need was greater. The blessing is: having enough money to overpay for something. i did want that wood though, and considered paying extra to have it stacked, but still the time involved, even just an hour. Was the man able time-wise, and what about the weather the next day... Too much going on, and i was just plain tired.
Fingers need a rest.

Just googled, “what is it about women preachers calling themselves reverend?” And once again, comments from women/agnostics who want little-to-nothing to do with the (for-real) Christian walk, because acknowledging Christ is “sexist.” Oh paleeze! Just because the Bible says that women were not created to get behind a pulpit before a crowd of men and women (don a pretty pointed hat, robe and such, “before the TV eyes of millions” ;/). (1) Oh, but never mind that we older women are to teach younger women – which, by the way, can be done (on a blog) along a quiet cyber-street. And yeah, to a worldling, Titus 2:4-5 (2) and other verses may come of as Doormatting 101. Well guess what! Worldlings, despite their bright shiny degrees, (which many like to parade all around town) can be head-spinningly clueless! But in all fairness, wasn’t too long ago that (still) non-degreed me hated the Lord’s Word with a (polIte) passion.
Oh, and a double nevermind, that right after “sexist” Paul exhorts the women, he’s onto the men concerning similar “doormatting” ;) things. Yeah, isn’t that funny – not the only verse to exhort women to do this and not that, and then IMMEDIATELY after, (3) the men get read the riot act, for nearly the same things (uhm…like being a loud-mouth, slacker, “busybody in other men’s matters” – 1 Peter 4:15 - , drunk…)
Just noticed that the words “bitter” and “busybody” describe the actions of out-and-about men - and not so much the keeping-at-home women. (4) Who says God doesn’t have a sense of humor. ;)
1. Lyrics from “The Clasp,” Jethro Tull, from their “Broadsword and the Beast” album.
2. “That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” Titus 2:4-5
“Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.” Colossians 4:19
3. “But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evil doer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.” 1 Peter 4:15
4. By the way, in ancient times streets were dangerous; they didn’t have Capitol Police, and Life Team.

Stating an observation/emotion - to a narc, it's just complaining. But it's okay for narcs to complain....they're sickening.

Needless to say, the commenter was called a troll, and told that "you and your God buddy" should go play elsewhere. These Lord-bashers think they're so slick. They ain't slick. Their just obnoxiously stupid. And yeah, if i misspelled any words (which i probably did - wrist is fried, from working) it happens to folks pushing 60 who actually do their own housekeeping.
