We live in a weird world…

8 04 2010

With all the insanity in the world today, it should be no surprise that people are skeptical just about everything.   See some of the weird (and somewhat funny) stories below.  Last night mine and Karen’s home group met at our house and discussed a very important topic.  Knowing what you believe and why you believe it.  It is important to have strong convictions about TRUTH.  Truth is NOT relative.  Truth is ABSOLUTE.  Though the world (Satan) tries to trick and deceive and ruin us, he doesn’t have to win.  I love the truth of 1 Corinthians 15:57-58.

“But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Even so my beloved brethren, be steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord.”

This is critical to enjoying a life of sustained peace, joy and contentment.  A solid conviction in truth about the WIN we already can experience leads us to living a life of integrity.  Listen, I’ve failed enough in my life – in big ways – and have seen both sides of this fence.  You don’t want to be on the losing side.  So go and pursue Jesus.  Get to know Him and build a relationship with Him.  I can guarantee you won’t be dissappointed in that decision.

Romans 5:5
“And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.”

Mom Of The Year

Michael Kelly got a hysterical phone call from his mother saying that his 9 year old son was missing. As one might imagine, Michael panicked. He then made some bad choices on his way to mom’s house. Driving at speeds up to 120 mph, running a red light, and refusing to stop for police he finally arrived at his mother’s place. He was then arrested on several charges. But what about his son? The boy is fine, Michael’s mom says it was just an April Fools joke.
Good one mom! Can’t wait to see what she comes up with next year.

These Things Don’t Only Happen in Florida

Some people have a dog, or a cat. Others have more exotic pets. But you don’t often come across anyone that keeps chickens (unless they plan to eat the suckers at some point). Lauren Steltzer, of Lower Merion, Pennsylvania, not only keeps chickens as pets, but when two of the chickens went missing recently, she put up posters around the neighborhood and updated her Facebook page. Unfortunately, the police in Lower Merion didn’t get the message and when a police officer responded to a call for a chicken at large, he did what anyone else would do when confronted with such a ferocious beast… he got a friend to shoot it (with a bow and arrow!). At least the police department admits that they could have shown better judgement. Read the original article here.

Optical Illusion house

Don’t you hate it when you are just walking along, and a perfectly good cartoon house turns out to be an illusion?

“House 1” is the title of the piece, from the National Gallery Sculpture Garden in Washington DC. It was created by U.S. artist Roy Lichtenstein.

I’m not certain that the ability to understand the language here would improve this weird ad.
