Celebrate itsy, bitsy, teenie, tiny screws that hold

FARM FACT Friday for October 17, 2014

 Cows have 32 teeth - no top teeth in the front. On the top front, cows have a tough pad of skin instead of teeth.

Daily Ordinary for October 17, 2014

Celebrate bath tub drains. Oh what a pain to have to scoop water out of a tub instead of a flip of a lever.

REWIND WEDNESDAY - Is Complaining Disrespectful to God?

It’s amazing what you can learn at 2:00 AM.

I was exhausted and could not hold my eyes open any longer so I hit the sheets at 9:30 PM. Not a good idea.

Around 2:00 AM my body must have thought it was time to get up from a long nap.

So, I got up and turned the TV on and did a little surfing.

I started to watch one of my favorite TV pastors. I am purposely not mentioning names because some of us will either lean in or get turned off by certain people. This revelation to me is too good for you to miss it just because you might not like the messenger.

Anyway, this is what he said that gave me a big “Ah ha”moment.

“Complaining about anything in your life, no matter what it is you are complaining about, is telling God that he isn’t doing a good enough job.”

He said it again.

“If you are complaining about your circumstances, your job, your life, no matter what, you are telling God ‘You aren’t doing a good enough job’.”

What do you think?

Psalm 139:16

New Living Translation (NLT)

16 You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.

Pet Peeves - Pet Pleases

I’ve been doing a lot of people watching and people listening. And, noticed there are a lot of pet peeves out there.

For instance:
“It drives me nuts . . .
               when someone can’t admit they are wrong or take responsibility for mistakes.” What is so horrible about being human and confirming what everyone knows anyway – yep, you were wrong.

               when someone speaks with authority and states things as facts when they really have no real confirmation of the facts.” Pretty soon anything they say will be doubted.

               when you are told, ‘I’ll be there in 10 minutes’ and 45 minutes later you are still waiting.” When this is a continual pattern you know someone has a real problem.

               when some is explaining or answering a question and they repeat, when some is explaining or answering a question and they repeat, when some is explaining or answering a question and they repeat” . . . . you get the picture. Tell me once, if I have a question, I’ll ask.

So for every action there is a reaction – so let’s give the opposite some space.

Some pet pleases:
“I love it:
               when Farmer brings me wild flowers or flowers from the farm.” This one is personal for me. It tells me that he took time to do something nice and I was on his mind.

               when you find an unexpected note or card in your mailbox.” I love snail mail encouragements. It makes stopping at the mailbox worth it.

               when a wigglie climbs on your lap and whispers ‘Grama, you’re my best friend’”. What’s not to love?

So, how is it in your world? What are your pet peeves? Before you answer – for every comment of a pet peeve, you must include a pet please.

Celebrate the ordinary

Today is the only day you have. Don't wish it away, worry it away or plan it away. Your ordinary days add up to life.
