random thoughts

~ I’m no Sun Tsu, but even I know that if you don’t fight a war to win, you don’t, um, win.

~ As I’m reading through Scripture, I recently came across this in Jeremiah 31:

I will turn their mourning into joy; I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow.

I understand the context of those words is not about me, but I know that God, and Has turned my mourning into joy. He has comforted me and given me gladness for sorrow.

~ A couple of words and phrases that annoy me:

teachable moment — it’s so pretentious. Also, moments can’t be taught anything. Some people are teachable, but moments aren’t.

gift used as a verb — what’s wrong with give??

~ Why would someone who owns a sports/muscle car drive below the speed limit?

~ September has been hotter and more humid than August. I’m ready for fall!

~ Random thoughts, random photos:

~ I’m waiting on an electrician to check on some things at home. He said he’d be here between 9 and 10. It’s 9:45, and no sign of him, but I’ve done some laundry and gotten some mail ready to go.

~ South Beach is craaaazy, but our hotel was wonderful. I’ll share more about that soon.

~ Last night, Paul and I had our first “normal” night at home since our wedding. Normal is awesome! 🙂

And that’s it for this Wednesday. Thanks for reading, y’all!
