This Is The Music That Was Playing When I Was Most Alive
Thursday, January 03, 2008
This meme was brought to you by the letter X and the number 7. Oh, and Almost Saintly Nick ;) Seems I just did this a short while ago but it ain't healthy to say no to The Duchess.
1. I'm a, "Born Again Virgin" it happens after 3 years of having a clear head.
2. I can't find any shoes that fit, I just returned a pair of size 12 EEEEEE's, my foot is the length of a size 10 1/2 but I go up a couple of sizes to try and compensate some for the width.
3. This is hard. I'l have to get back to you when I can figure out 5 more things.

Grizzer Bear !
"What majestic trees"
"What powerful rivers"
"What beautiful animals"
He said to himself. As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him. He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him. He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer. He tripped & fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him.
At that instant the Atheist cried out, 'Oh my God!'
Time Stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent. As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky. 'You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident.'
'Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer'? The atheist looked directly into the light, 'It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR a Christian'?
'Very Well,' said the voice.
The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed. And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head & spoke:
'Lord bless this food, for which I am about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen.'

Rite Of Passage
Do you know the legend of the Cherokee Indian youth's " Rite of Passage"? When he becomes the right age, his father takes him into the forest, blindfolds him and leaves him alone. He is required to sit on a stump the whole night and not remove the blindfold until the rays of the morning sun shine through it. He cannot cry out for help to anyone. Once he survives the night, then he is a man. He cannot tell the other boys of this experience, because each one must come into manhood on his own. The boy is naturally terrified. He can hear all kinds of noises. Wild beasts must surely be all around him. Maybe even some human might do him harm. The wind blows the limbs and the brush. There are all kinds of creepy sounds through out the night, but he sat stoically, never removing the blindfold. It would be the only way he could become a man! Finally, after a horrific night the sun appeared and he removed his blindfold. It was then that he discovered his father sitting on the stump next to him. He had been at watch the entire night, protecting his son from harm. We, too, are never alone. Even when we don't know it, Our Heavenly Father is watching over us, sitting on the stump beside us. When trouble comes, all we have to do is reach out to Him.

The News Scares Me...
It would be nice to turn on the TV one time and not be hounded by all of the immoral things that happened that day. I watch the news just waiting to see someone that I know or went to school with get arrested for something stupid but most of the time it’s a lot younger generation that is responsible for acting a fool. Mostly teens and kid’s in there 20’s. It seems that they have no fear of God or any type of conscience. It’s amazing that at the same time there are all of those young men and women that have joined the service or have worked hard to go on to college, were raise along side of the same young men and women that are on the news or already in jail. Seems somebody had dropped the ball somewhere. Maybe it was when we started taking religion out of school and out of public places. If they are not getting any guidance from home they are certainly not getting it from school or the media. I know a lot of good kids out there and my daughter is one of them. I wish more parents would take the time to spend with their children and try and teach them some of the morals that our parents tried to teach us. And if you did not get that kind of guidance from your’s then stand up and start something new. Peace and good day.
