Weekend Wrap Up

January 14, 2006

Yesterday it was 66 degrees, today we have a inch and a half of snow and low forties. Welcome to Middle Tennessee. The motto around here is if you don’t like the weather, just stick around until tomorrow and it will change.

————————
I am reading the book I referred to in yesterdays post, “End of the Spear” by Steve Saint. This whole event that took place 50 years ago this month is one of the most powerful testimonies of how God can and does work in the tragedies that touch our lives. How powerful to see God bring his love and message of salvation to a savage tribe of people who lived to kill in order to live. The fear of death that was ever present was replaced by the peace and love of a God who loved them. Just as the Son died for them, five men willing to also place their lives on the line and die for them, would be a testimony of God’s powerful love.

And finally, someone sent me the following Zen Sarcasm
1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me alone.
2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and leaky tire.
3. Its always darkest before dawn. So if you’re going to steal your neighbor’s newspaper, that’s the time to do it.
4. Don’t be irreplaceable. If you can’t be replaced, you can’t be promoted.
5. Always remember that you’re unique. Just like everyone else.
6. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.
7. If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments.
8. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.
9. If at first you don’t succeed, skydiving is not for you.
10. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.
11. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
12. If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.
13. Some days you’re the bug; some days you’re the windshield.
14. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.
15. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.
16. A closed mouth gathers no foot.
17. Duct tape is like ‘The Force,’ It has a light side and a dark side, and it holds the universe together.
18. There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.
19. Generally speaking, you aren’t learning much when your lips are moving.
20. Experience is something you don’t get until just after you need it.
21. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
And MY personal favorite
22. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night
