I remember LOVING summer vacation!
Don't you remember absolutely LOVING summer vacation! I DO! Apparently my kids don't share the same feelings. We were on day two of summer break and my kids were standing in the doorway trying to come inside as I'm TELLING them to GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY!! They are constantly trying to come up with a plan and "can I call...." stuff like that. Here is the response they got from me...."It's day two of summer! You better figure out something to do and go do it because there are like 60 more days of summer left!" Their response..."WHAT? 60 more days. Seriously?" Who are these children and why do they look like me?
I have to go pick out all my light fixtures this week. I'M SO DONE WITH ALL OF THIS! Seriously. I don't want to pick anything else out! I just want someone else to do it and I want to walk in the house and have it all be done and say, "wow, it looks fabulous!"
Thoughts on Faith:
I think that too many of us are looking for answers outside of God's word. I think that too many of us are reading books filled with doctrinal theories written by a man and accepting what those men have to say as truth. Even some fictional books with heavy faith issues seem to be the source of some peoples inspiration as of late. I'm not saying that we can't learn and be inspired by these things. I know that can happen, and I know that not all the doctrinal theory books out there are "bad." I just think that there are definitely some things out there right now that are off, but what is off about it is being mixed in between some truth and because of that we as a christian culture are letting it slide and letting it seep into our lives. I heard the statement recently..."don't throw the baby out with the bath water." I love the person who said this to me dearly and we had a REALLY good discussion about it. But in the end I still disagreed with the premise of the statement. The problem is, we may be "throwing out the bathwater" but sometimes the bathwater has already contaminated the baby before it gets thrown out. We need to be more careful with what we are putting in the tub...that's all I'm saying!
WOW! Ok, I got a little deep today! Lucky for ya'll tomorrow is Wordless Wednesday!
