I must apologize for skipping the last couple of days. We’ve been messing with our computers, adding a hard drive to my parents’ computer and totally reinstalling Windows 95 on my computer. So I’ve been up really late wrestling with the software from hell. As of now my parents’ computer works fine, and mine won’t even start. Thank you Bill Gates.
But hey, what’s there to complain about, it snowed today!
Whew. Nothing like losing your voice while singing praise to God.
I learned something about this Daily Ponderings deal today. People will remember what I write and hold me accountable for it. I guess that’s a good thing, but it’s kind of a slap in the face at first. But if you think about it, it’s really me slapping myself in the face.
So, on a totally unrelated tangent, I have an 8:15 final tomorrow, and I’m going to bed. So I leave you with a totally unconnected and thought provoking quote:
“When you look at me, you don’t see a man. You see a black man.” – Carl Lee Haley, A Time To Kill.
When I think about that, I realize that the only hope is in the line of a Rich Mullins song:
“My Deliverer is coming…
So I’ve decided to cement my daily thoughts in immortal type, and plaster them here on the world wide web for all to read. What kind of an idiot am I? One with hopeful ambitions, I guess. So why am I doing this? I’m glad you asked. The main reason is because I call myself a writer, and writers are supposed to write. I like to journal, but it’s hard to do that every day. This is kind of a sneaky way to force myself to write everyday. Knowing that, I think it’s also a good way to realize that not all my writing is going to be good writing. Sometimes I get that lofty idea in my head.
So what’s in it for you? Well, I hope you thoroughly enjoy reading what I have to say. But I know I’m not that special. I’m just hoping that at times my jumbled mess of thoughts will make sense to someone, and make them think. Maybe you’ll scratch your head at an interesting idea, maybe you’ll have to write something down. Maybe you’ll step away from your computer screen a changed person. Maybe you’ll see that there’s a little more to this life. Or maybe you’ll just laugh and shake your head. I guess we just have to wait and see.
So here we go. Thanks for joining me on what could be a wild ride.
