Sometimes I feel like my poor mind is so full...that I wonder if it can hold one more itty-bitty thought!!! Any of you ever feel that way?
So...today's post is just gonna be some random thoughts....that I think I just need to get out of my head and onto paper....well, not actually paper...but you know what I mean!!!
I got some really good feed-back on my blog yesterday about weight. I was a bit hesitant to write that one....but I felt it was probably meant for more than just me. I tried to talk to somebody about why it is I turn to food...instead of turning to God....instead of allowing the Holy Spirit to speak to me when I get so stressed....and you know what they did?!?!? They totally changed the subject. This was somebody who I feel could have helped me...but they chose not to.
I think that in itself spoke volumes!!! I heard on the radio that Simon Cowell is debating whether to continue being a judge on American Idol. He makes THIRTY-TWO MILLION DOLLARS.....as a judge on the show...and it was being considered to offer him FOUR TIMES that amount to stay!!! Why don't they take that money and try to boost up our economy....instead of boosting up one person who isn't even worth it?!?!? Oops...did I just say that?!?!?!
Michael Jackson's memorial service....WOW!!! I don't know much else to say on that topic....just WOW!!! Again....such extravagance.....so many people pouring so much love and devotion into just one person. Just made me really stop and think about this world we live in....and where so many people's priorities are.
Steve McNair...former quaterback for Tennessee Titans...was found dead, along with his girlfriend/mistress. The trouble with that is...the man was married. I realize this is a very tragic thing to happen....and I truly feel for the families....but, when are people going to wake up and realize that
"if you're gonna play, you've gotta pay"!!!
Casey Kasem...how many of you know who he is??? I loved listening to his Top 40 Countdown as a teenager. He broadcast his final show this past Saturday....I didn't hear it...but it's still sad... "American...Top Forty"!!!
Did you hear that Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina has found his soul mate???? The trouble with that is...he's married...and his wife isn't who he's talking about!!!!
Lance Armstrong....at the age of 37, which isn't young in the sports field....as of yesterday....was in second place in the Tour de France. Remember...he had cancer several years ago....what a comeback he's made.
Speaking of cancer....read the story about Hooper Jerrolds....a precious 8 year old little boy who has been growing his hair out for 2 years so that he can give it to Locks for Love....he's gone thru some ridicule...but he stuck to his guns!!!
You know....us older folk can sure learn from the young 'uns!!!
Did you hear that there's been a first at the Memphis Zoo? They have a new baby elephant...or "elfanant"....as Jess called them when she was little!!!
Verlon Caudill makes homemade fishing lures. Why does that interest me??? Because it reminds me of my Daddy. To make some extra money, he poured fish hooks. If that makes no sense....he would melt lead in a pot and had a mold that he placed a fish hook in, then poured the melted lead into the slot and it made the round "head" on the hook. My job was to take a pair of pliers and cut off the little "lip" that was left on the tops...and I had to cut it off smoothly!! He would hang them on the barb wire fence and paint the "heads"...and would then sell them!!! Sweet memories!!!
Farrah Fawcett's and Ed McMahan's deaths....wonder if they would have been talked about much more if they hadn't happened about the same time as Michael Jackson's? Their families are grieving, too, just like MJ's are....we need to keep all of these in our prayers.
So...that's just some random thoughts from an old lady on a Wednesday morning!!!
Psalm 143:8 (NIV)
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.
In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!
I'm sorry I didn't get chance to respond to your post yesterday...which is a shame really as weight/eating issues is somehting I've battled for years and which I desperately need to sort out before its too late. I won't go into my eating issues here because its just too public and I'm not entirely comfortable with that - but rest assured that you do not suffer alone. (((hugs))) Louise xReplyDelete
Some of those thoughts have run across my mind the past few weeks too. Good blog, and interesting.ReplyDelete
MJ's news just ran all over FF...but as you I have had thoughts also but I thought wow EM/ FF / BM / families must of relished the privacy they found due to MJ's over done death and funeralReplyDelete
