gungor (best worship album i have heard in a long time)!

i will admit that i don't listen to too much Christian music anymore. i have found that some of it is self centered and shallow, but once in awhile i will find a artist that will continue to encourage me to keep pushing myself to be a better person in Christ.

gungor's album beautiful things does this. the lyrics are simple in some ways, but they still hit home and make me wonder about my own walk with God.

some lyrics are thought provoking. the song cannot keep you had me questioning the way i view the Bible and the church. the song states

"We cannot keep you in a church, we cannot keep you in a Bible or it's just another idol to box you in. they could not keep you in their walls, we cannot keep you in ours either, for you are so much greater."

the Bible as an idol? at first i was offended, but the more i thought about it i realize how some people try to say that God will not work in ways that He once did in the Bible.

i once heard a speaker who said that God will no longer speak through a burning bush... why? because we have the Bible (the speaker said that, not me) and God no longer needs to speak to us through such things. hmmm... i have yet to find that verse in the Bible... it must be next to the no drum beat rule and kjv only section.

why can't He speak through a burning bush still? i have no idea why one would teach such a thing, but God is bigger than the Bible and what we believe. i know i am no where near understanding who God is, but i doubt i will ever say He cannot do some thing (i am still holding out for a thick head of hair).

i guess i say all of that to say, i love this album...

i hope you will give gungor a chance.

dear man at the urinal

i do enjoy witty conversations and hearing about the weather and how years ago it was much hotter, but not at the urinal. not to mention you are not keeping your eyes straight ahead.
yes, i do enjoy summer time, but i don't enjoy your pee spraying on to the floor next to my feet.
okay, i know i am fun to talk to, but i really want to just wash my hands and get back to work...
oh, i don't need you to follow me back to my office.
have a good day and from now on i will use a different restroom and i hope your hay gets cut soon.

random facts about me

-as a child i had a huge collection of he-man action figures. i would sit and play with them for hours and honestly still would if they had their arms and legs still attached.

- i lack will power and drive to workout. i want to get into shape and i can plan and write out everything i need to do, but when it comes down to it... i can't do it. i have no push. i can look down and see the view of my feet slowly fading by the gut that is forming in front of me, but still... nothing.

-i used to take adderall... not because i was adhd, but because i wanted to lose weight. it all goes back to the lack of will power.

-i will read one comic book over 50 times before i put it away in storage. i am not sure why i do this. it could be that it's all i want to read when i am in the bathroom, but some times you find some thing new around the 30th time around.

-i have almost all of my childhood toys in my basement and some times i go through them to remember the simple times and think about how i never got that lion-o action figure i always wanted.

-i secretly wish i knew how to work on cars. as a child my dad would try and get me to help him, but it was always hot in his garage and besides... it was interrupting my he-man cartoons.
now i wish i knew so i could take care of all the small problems that come up with my little focus.
maybe i should just wish i was rich. that would take care of everything.

-i used to want to be a rock star. i think i held on to that dream for a long time. i guess it is a good thing it never happened. due to the fact i am lazy with working out.. i am sure leather pants would just hurt my career.

-i can come up with an excuse faster than i can blink. i am not sure how i learned this talent, but i know it is a good one to have. it has saved me from a lot of boring trips to the movies and many uncomfortable conversations.

-some times i want to go back in time and tell people off. i am not sure if i am the only one who day dreams about that, but i would just love to just go back for one hour and just let some people know how i truly feel, but i am sure that if i was given that chance i wouldn't say anything.

-i hate being a people pleaser, but if you need any help, let me know.

-i am afraid of the long legged spiders that live in my basement. to help me over come this fear i am setting off a bug bomb some time this week.

-i enjoy making awkward moments, but hate when it is done to me.

i will end this long list by saying: i slept with a ewok doll until i was 10...
