Does Humor Have You Cracking Up?

Yeah, ok, maybe not one of my better titles for a blog entry (as a segue for the link to, get it?). Thought I'd share a site that you might find humorous, albeit a bit sarcastic, and sometimes off color. They do have lots of interesting bits of useless information that you can impress your friends with. :)

Like the article that is titled 5 Pieces of Junk that Turned Out to be Invaluable Artifacts

The tale about the Stradivarius is incredible! And if you follow the link you will see that it is documented and true. Truth can be stranger than fiction, as the saying goes.

It Depends On How You Look At It

The last few weeks have been times to reflect what I think, how I perceive, and what I think the Lord wants me to consider valuable and important. I realize that often times what I think is most valuable and important really isn't anything special in "the grand scheme of things" and what truly is important often gets trampled underfoot, and thrown out. (I think this is why I am such a clutter bug/hoarder. I'm always afraid that what I throw out will be thing thing I will really regret throwing out and soon after throwing out discover that I really needed it, sigh) .

I've been trying to pay more attention to those things that speak huge truths quietly, to listen carefully to sermons, and not just throw a sermon out because I disagree on one point....and who knows? I might be off (probably am) on my full understanding of that one point and how I should actually deal with it. Instead, I want to really listen for the gems that are there, that the Lord knows I need to hear.

Lord open my ears that I might hear, and my eyes that I might see, those things that you see I truly have need of. Help me to not shut my ears to you because the bearer of your message to me disagrees with me on one point.

...and Romans 8:28 always comes to mind. :)

A wonderful sermon that truly blessed me:
