Well, back to work tomorrow. Yuck!

But at least I have a job, so I should be thankful. Cliff Note:That sentence was aimed at me.

Now that I'm taking the meds I need, and I am expecting a chewing out by my doctor, it's time to get back into the usual routine. I've been listening to motivational recordings today, trying to get my mind in gear.

Yesterday, I listened to two messages by Happy Wife's pastor at 12 Stone Church. They were good messages from the Trademark Your Life series. Check them out, as you can download them from iTunes.

Our church is having a talent show the Sunday night before Christmas. I am considering writing a poem, as the Lord revealed to me this past year that I had that talent. I will post the finished product on Seek Him First.

I hope everybody got through Black Friday without incident. It always surprises me that a season when we wish one another "Peace on Earth and goodwill toward men" brings out the worst in some people. My prayers go out to the family of the Walmart associate who was trampled to death. That was senseless.

Remember the reason for the season.

I hope your Dr. puts you in a timeout...that will teach you. :)
Glad you had a nice day with family....cleaning ice out of the gutters? I so don't wish that on anyone. Nice that you helped out though. You are a good guy.
The walmart tragedy...
I am amazed myself why people get crazy to shop. It is ludicrous. Stuff before humans??? I don't get it.Makes NO sense.

Cliff...I couldn't believe that Wal-Mart story either. It's one thing to trample the guy even worse that no-one stopped! People kept going by him. How horrible.

The Walmart incident is truly tragic.

Ok I have to comment on the Walmart tragedy.

Suz hits the nail directly on its head here. We put stuff before people, and even before God! This is a sad fact of society. When will people learn that, as was once said, "You can't take it with you"?

Cliff - I'm glad you're writing! My writing has stalled out a bit... but I'm waiting for my "muse" to return (hopefully?)
:-)

Glad you're enjoying the messages from 12Stone. It's a really neat place...

I just heard on the news this morning that the Wal Mart employee who died was 6'3" and 250 (or thereabouts)... I assumed he was a small person.... not so. Those shoppers must have been rabid. Absolutely senseless.
