No pressure here!

I've noticed something since I started writing and blogging regularly. It seems that there's a  "you comment on mine, and I'll comment on yours" type of vibe going on out there. And I want anyone who comes to this site to know that they should never, ever feel any pressure to comment here, subscribe, re-post, Facebook share, tweet, etc. anything you find here. If the Lord leads you to say or do something -- go for it! But, otherwise, please know that I will never be offended.

I'm not here to talk about how awesome I am, or read about how awesome readers think I am -- I'm here to tell everyone and anyone who will listen how awesome HE is. I don't say that to sound super-spiritual. I just want to help all of you be free to just read and enjoy without  feeling obligated in any way.

Love you all!

A word about diligence from the mouth of a 13 year old

One of the kiddo's assignments today was to pick a verse about diligence and to pray over it, asking the Lord to show her something about it just for her.

She chose Proverbs 12:27:

The lazy man does not roast what he took in hunting, but diligence is man’s precious possession.

I thought that was pretty good.

So I asked her what precious means. She said that it means something you guard closely. She continued to say that the Lord showed her that without diligence, goals are pointless. Such as her saving up for a guitar, she can go ahead and get the guitar, but if she doesn't diligently study and practice playing it, it's useless.

Awesome. :)

A public service announcement - general etiquette

3 points of common etiquette to ponder:

1. When walking down a hallway, stay to the right (unless impossible due to other circumstances such as crowds of others not obeying this unwritten rule), much like in driving.

2. Don't ride people's tails when driving.  Even if you aren't in mid-road rage, the car in front of you may assume that you are.

3.  Don't walk by people while talking on your cell phone.  They might think you're talking to them, and say something back, which makes them feel like a major dork when they realize you're on the phone.

That is all--good day!
