Post #60: “Quarter-inch Pakis!”

LOL, I’m not even going to begin to explain the title. If you weren’t there, it won’t be funny. 🙂

Here’s a verse I feel is particularly relevant: “Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life” (Philippians 2:14-16).

Now the reason I say it’s relevant is because lately some people have been complaining a lot about some things that have been going on at school and church. Now while I don’t necessarily *like* everything that happens, either, I think it’s important to keep that verse in mind. If we really want to get to know God better, it’s pretty important that we obey what He says. That shouldn’t be a problem, should it?

Here’s a piece of advice: If you disagree with something that’s going on, instead of complaining about it, go talk to one of the people involved with it first. What’s complaining going to accomplish besides getting more carbon dioxide into the air? Not a whole lot. At least if you educate yourself, you get a better understanding of what’s going on. You might still disagree, and that’s OK. But no complaining!

We’ve got a four-day weekend. That makes me happy.

Well, Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. I’m still single. That’s OK, though. I’ll be here eating Hershey’s Kisses all day…unless someone wants to go see a movie or something.

Hey, if anyone’s free tomorrow afternoon, the school’ll be open and we all have the opportunity to go pray together as a group, so if you get the chance, please come!

I had an epiphany @ church last night (I went to abs.com @ Houston Northwest–muaha). We were singing “Grace Flows Down” and it got to that one part that goes, “Amazing love, now flowing down from hands and feet that were nailed to the tree.” And I kept thinking of Jesus’ blood flowing down from the cross…and there’s a bunch of verses in the Old Testament that say “The life is in the blood.” So this connection happened: Jesus’ life was about grace and love, and pouring it out on people. On us. And it covers us. That’s what He was about. And as His disciples, we should be about the same thing–pouring His love and grace out on other people.
