Someone offered to give us a car the other day.

We need it. We will accept the gift.

My other car is making some strange noises. Sounds like something from the suspension (front end).

I hope both cars work out.

If they don’t, than I suppose something else will come along. It seems to be happening that way. I guess I am learning to trust more. Most of the time I trust that God will provide, but don’t believe that he endorses my lifestyle (being an American). So, I feel like my “felt needs” aren’t really needs, but illusion of need based on my perceived context.

I mean, how much trusting do I really have to do? I am really a pansie when it comes to trusting for anything of significance . . .

By the way, the whole steroid scandal really pisses me off. I shouldn’t have to explain that . . .

I guess the NCAA tourney started today, but I didn’t even fill out a bracket this year . . .

I have recently read the DaVinci Code . . . good book . . . lots of interesting points . . . Some would say a lot of heresies too . . . I’ll let you make that call and save my opinions for a really good post sometime . . . You should read it.

Tomorrow is the end of a weight loss challenge I am in. In 2 months I have lost 7 lbs . . . Not a lot considering I should lose 30+ lbs. Motivation to change habits doesn’t come often enough.

Happy St. Patties day.


One thought on “Ramblings

    That whole paragraph about God endorsing our American lifestyle and trusting God-couldn’t agree more. That’s why I typically get frustrated when people with say a house and two cars and lots and lots of stuff pray for God to meet their payments. Is He up there saying, “I never told you to buy that, you’re on your own.” or is He so very graceful that he forgives our greed and poors out even more blessing? Who knows what God really thinks about our consumerism…

    So why haven’t you published the results of your weigh in? Who won? Are you just afraid to tell your wife?
