just plain mad

Sometimes I get so mad. I know I'm supposed to be nice and loving because I love Jesus but some things that make me mad are probably making Him mad, too. So here's a list of what's bothering me today.

1. People who constantly post online about their political thoughts. These people are generally mean and mock the other side of what they are promoting. I especially get angry when these people profess Christ and yet never seem to post a thing about that.

2. People who care more about what other people think than what God thinks. I know lots of people who genuinely believe the Bible but let themselves get all tangled up in rules and regulations. Why should we care more about the check writers in a church than starving orphans (for example)? P.S. I'm wearing a t-shirt that supports orphans on Easter Sunday, and you can take your fancy Easter dress and shove it. Forget the Frock! I mean wear a nice dress if you want to, really, but I think it would be great if we all supported this cause.

3. I think that's the end of my list. I think I'm in a funk today but I do feel justified in my frustrations. Sometimes people should just shut up, and maybe I'm one of them.

Shots and Doughnut Holes

Let's just pretend that it hasn't been like 3 months since I've posted anything.

Today was a fantastic day. After being sick for over a week and just plain old cabin fever after days and days of freezing temperatures, we were out of the house for most of the day. Kathryn had a well-check today. I knew it was going to be a great day when we were in and out of there in less than an hour. After the doctor I took Miss Priss to Chick-fil-A for some grilled nugs and ice cream, although I ate her ice cream because she was more interested in her apples. I guess that's a good thing. We came home for her nap and then zoomed out of the house again. With a high near 65 we just had to get outside. I took her to the local park where we walked beside the creek for a long time. Then we went over to our local university campus and walked around while eating dougnut holes from the new library coffee shop. Even though tomorrow is sure to be cold and rainy again, I think today refreshed our souls enough to make it til spring!
