Talking back to the headlines

August 28th, 2008 Comments off

The following were headlines in Inside Yahoo! today, and my inner voice responses:

  • Obama seeks a personal touch within a huge stadium – most people would shun him as a pervert.
  • Officials my evacuate New Orleans as Gustav nears – what did Gustav ever do to them?
  • Georgia: S. Ossetia ethnic cleansing nearly done – Phew, at least something are still on track.
  • Economy rebounds in 2Q – Yet another quarter without a recession, I feel a little cheated.
  • Bill and Hillary, at least, leave the stage – Didn’t we get rid of them 8 years ago?
  • Hollywood stars talk politics at Dem convention – A spelling word got missed by the editor its spelled D-U-M-B.
  • Microsoft’s newest browser may block ads – May fry your hard drive and send your grandma all your pr0n too.

Daily Walk 365 – Day 4

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. — 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NKJV)

Lists are good things.  We try to make list for our days, little bits of routine to make our lives work.  Hints to remind ourselves, and sometimes our children, to do each day to make our lives easier.  Here Paul gives an ‘everyday’ list, the type of thing you put at the top of your Outlook calendar, when you check the ‘All Day Event’ box.  Then at the top of each day you’ll see:

  • Rejoice
  • Pray
  • Give Thanks

Can it get any easier?  How come it seems so hard?
