More Than We Think

Posted by on Jan 21, 2021 in Uncategorized

Late post. Bad lighting.

Our words and actions rarely occur in a vaccuum. They affect others, for good or ill. We fail to see it, but the fact remains.

Our poorly-timed jests could hurt others more than humor them. They may carry the embarrassment long after the laughter. A passing kind word we utter may be the only kindness the recipient hears that day. To us, the action is small, but others hold onto it.

And we may not realize it at the time. Or ever.

So Much Stuff

Some stuff is funny.

Christmas just came and went; and with it came more stuff—lots of stuff. Good stuff. But stuff, nonetheless.

I love stuff. I love buying it; I love getting it. I love having it. Stuff is something I love, plain and simple. I can’t dent it. And I won’t.

Thinking things…

2020 had its up and downs.

This year I’m starting low emotionally.

I’m not sure what I am going to do with the site in 2021, if anything. I had pretty small aims for 2020, and I could not even meet those. I struggle with the purpose of maintaining this site in the coming year.

I have it until at least April to decide whether to re-up. We’ll see if it lasts beyond that.

Thanks for stopping by,

06/23/2020 The Sinner

Full Disclosure: Not thinking, just posing.

Short and sweet today. I know this is late. My updates just aren’t happening on Saturdays. I have no excuse. I choose to prioritize my responsibilities for my eBay store (listing, shipping, etc.) over posting. Maybe I shouldn’t, but I do. It’s what it is in this season.

Bottom line for today: I’ve been thinking a lot about sin lately, and I am guilty, constantly guilty, of a variety of sins. Resentment. Bitterness. Envy. Pride. I could go on-and-on. Even as I pursue excellence and virtue, it seems that every sermon I hear reminds me of areas in which I fail to repent. In so many ways, my sin feels more entrenched than any righteousness. People don’t believe me when I tell them, but it’s true.

And yet, I have joy.
