Preparation for the upcoming elections

This quote is out of context, but it’s fun anyway:

Ecclesiastes 10:2
A wise man's heart inclines him to the right, but a fool's heart to the left.

Of course if you take verses out of context you can prove anything. Here's one that proves the existence of Santa Clause (KJV only):

Zechariah 2:6
"Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith the LORD"

Cold-hearted orb...

Breathe deep the gathering gloom
Watch lights fade from every room
Bed-sitter people look back and lament
Another day’s useless energy spent

Impassioned lovers wrestle as one—
Lonely man cries for love and has none
New mother picks up and suckles her son
Senior citizens with they were young

Cold-hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colors from our sight
Red is gray... and yellow, white
But we decide which is right

And which is an illusion

ave you ever seen those karaoke machines they sell at Wallmart and other retail stores? They’re pretty cool. They do a pretty good job of removing the vocals from pre-recorded music and if you have actual karaoke discs and MP3s, they will even display the words on a screen so you can sing along.

But most people are not quite as good as this girl who decided to try out the machine in this retail store... Wow!

Oh well... it was fun while it lasted. Bet you wish you had come to see the video earlier. :-)

Got endorphins?

I posted this a few hours ago, primarily to remind myself that I need to focus on my health and keep exercising, even when it’s storming outside (which it is right now). But then I got a great comment from Dixie, a fellow blogger from North Carolina. Here’s her comment:

Hugging boosts endorphins also. Which makes it really great going to a church where everyone gives hugs. Thanks.

LOL! Gotta love it!

Proverbs 16:1-4

The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit. Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble.

Help me, Lord, to know the good and the right... and when I understand the correct path, to walk in it. My plans will end in disaster. Your plans will be established.

eptember 11! Yesterday we remembered the terrible September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the foiled attack that ended up crashing in the Pennsylvania field. That attack—11 years ago yesterday—was a terribly difficult time for our nation, but showed how strong our nation was at the time. I hope we would show such strength and determination now.

Yesterday was a beautiful day, much like September 11, 2001. The cool air and a beautiful sunrise I noticed through the office window made me head out to the Francis Scott Key Memorial Bridge. I needed the exercise and wanted to enjoy the beautiful morning.

Walking back to my office I noticed that many of the office buildings had hung very large American flags to honor those fallen on that day. It made me proud—similar to the way I felt shortly after the attacks. God has greatly blessed this nation. It is time that we the people turn back to him.
