Blue Collar Blues What have I traded myself into?
Oh joy, I can still remember the times when life was so much easier, when the grass was greener on my side of the corner and the sun was shining all the time. Khmm, yeah right. Let's be honest with myself here, miss Wannabe Marketer, you hated being a CS Agent, you almost had it at CS Training Specialist and you definitely didn't feel that much comfortable at being a Training Coordinator... and now this mess?
Who knew, that becoming a Marketer, when you have absolutely no idea how to do marketing (or even what is was) could be so rewarding... NOT!
I mean, at least before I had a lengthy title and shitloads of things I was constantly doing that I could boast about. Now what? Once you open your mouth to introduce yourself as a Marketer you get shit flying in from left and right... and that horrible whiny face. The "Oh, you're a marketer..." face.
It's not that I care too much about what they think, but somehow being a marketer leaves a taste of shit in everyone's mouth. Makes... (more)
antecedent deal breaker
I heard a song by The Offspring this weekend that suddenly took my mind back about 12 years ago. I was seventeen years old & having the time of my life, or so I thought. There was this guy. We'll call him Chuck since, well, that's his name. He seemed to like me quite a bit. I was introduced to the majority of my former boyfriends through a certain clique of friends I grew up with. The meeting of Chuck was through them as well.
He took a liking to me. Quite quickly, I'd say. He had some problems with letting go of an ex girlfriend who he proudly labeled psycho and I remember just doing a lot of listening to him as he talked about how he needed to just cut her loose once and for all. A popular song at the time was Self Esteem. He said was the soundtrack of their life and he would play it endlessly while we were there. Even then, I realized he was just in denial about his feelings for her. I was apprehensive about dating him even... (more)
Into The Air small miracles
If you look closely at the front egg you can see the cracks of emerging life. I
was looking at these baby birds and thinking of what a small miracle
they are. That nest that was built expertly by their mother holds the
possibility of four lives. It's not really a small miracle though, is it?No. Not at all. No miracle is small, and they certainly cannot be measured by me. Even
to think of the nest. Think of the nest without the lovely little
lives in it. It started with a simple strand. A piece of grass or straw.
The mother bird simply knew what to do, and she did it. She built this
nest out of nothing with knowledge that she was somehow born with. Then
she took care of her eggs with the little lives growing inside of them.
Now here are these brand new lives coming out into the world. They
don't even know that it's amazing. They don't even know they're
magnificent. And it's happening all over the place. It's spring.
Daily Devotion Enjoy Life, Be Prepared

Today's Chapters: Isaiah 20-24
Message Title: Be Prepared For Jesus
While we cannot know the hour in which Jesus will return, we can enjoy the life we are given and be prepared for His coming. If you do not have Christ in your life you are not prepared, and just saying that you know who He is does not mean you have Him in your life. The only way to have Christ in your life is to believe in His finished work on the cross, and ask Him to come into it, then and only then will you be save from the day He judges the world. âThat if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.â - Romans 10:9,10.
Isaiah was devastated by the visions God gave him over the nations, he laments over what he saw. âThe burden of the valley of vision. What aileth thee now,... (more)
