100 things I just learned #4

At some point or the other in life, you will eventually realize and have to accept this fact: there will be things that you cannot do anything about. It’s okay to try, it’s okay to pray; but at the end of the day, you are only human.

At such times, do what you can and allow everything else work out – give room for the pieces of your puzzle to fall in place. Getting yourself worked up over something you can’t change does not resolve anything. Leave it to God, let Him handle it.

Scripture meditation:

“… Be still and know that I am God…” Psalms 46.10

It’s okay to let people do nice things for me.

It was my birthday last weekend, and a couple with whom I’m friends have offered to put together a small celebration for me. They let me pick the date, which I have. However, I have been unable to just sit back and relax, even though I am really thrilled. Well, I’m having a headache and looking through Google for nice things to do, when I see this article. And just like this author learned, maybe it wouldn’t be the end of the world (chuckling at myself) to just let someone else do something for me for a change. Besides, I could really use a treat right now.



Sweet Brown is a hit!

Random blog post.

I remember seeing this clip shortly after the news airing about a fire in Oklahoma City. It’s been a few weeks, and in that time Sweet Brown got her cold pop, and became a hit from auto tuned versions of the clip. Here are my two favorites, enjoy:

I’m a light reader.

I used to think of myself as someone who liked to read a lot. In reality, I read small portions and digest little bits of information, one at a time. Getting my Joyce Meyer magazine today made me realize that. I mean, Pastor Joyce is just really awesome, pouring out so much content. I like a lot of things as per writing and books, but I can hardly keep up. So, I guess the Enjoying Everyday Life magazines work just fine for me.

If you’re a light reader like me, I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading them; you can always get yourself a free subscription here.



Social Media: Character Limits

I was just perusing my Facebook news feed as usual some minutes ago, and for some reason I recalled how tedious it can get to read some status updates. Now, for me, the word “tedious” brings to mind status updates and notes I have come across in the last few years. I recently started tweeting actively, and I very much recall a time in the past when Facebook had a character limit for status updates (if you remember this, raise your hands and say “aye!”). Some part of me misses those days, particularly because of how some can cause unrest with the quality of posts they put out there. And I mean that literally; else, how do you explain logging on to Facebook to relax after a full day of actively engaging your mind, only to be assaulted with different forms of literary jargon?

I did not know there was a Lingerie Football League (LFL)… at least not before I saw on WSB-TV’s action news that the league would forego the 2012 season.

Wow, I always wondered if women played American Football… I just did not expect there would be any playing in lingerie.




Resurrection Sunday

So, it’s Resurrection Sunday! How did you spend this day?

If you celebrated (or are celebrating) the Passover this period, I wish you a very happy celebration as well.

(Oh wow, I just discovered that there are two Easters in a year: Western and Orthodox. Interesting. I guess I’ll read more about that.)

Was at Church much earlier in the day and the children were ah-mazing with their presentations. I have to say, they always bless me with their innocent little ways. One little girl whom I think must have missed the rehearsals helped herself onto the stage, when she saw her age group on there, and started her own sound check on the mic. It was hilarious, and she was totally not done when the others filed out. Continue reading Resurrection Sunday
