Can’t Remember!

Jan 31

Man, who wrote that last post…haha.

I have been trying to remember my last dream so I could add it to the blog but I haven’t had much luck and I don’t want to just make something up. All I can remember is that me, James, and Casey were standing in the middle of a field watching Andy fly a kite. James kept showing us that he had quadro nipples…haha…that is, he had 4, that’s right, 4 nipples and he loved to show them off to everybody. Casey kept trying to cry on them since he has that habit of crying on man tits, haha. Not really Casey, I just made that part up. I don’t remember anything other than that. See, that sucks.

I should just make up an entire dream sequence and see how that goes over.

Why ask why? That is the question.

Why is it that at midnight I am sitting here typing up this blog post? Why do we work so hard to make the extra $$$? Is it so we can fulfill some odd dream? Is it because we are trying to make just a little more money so that we could spend more time with our kids? I want to buy a digital camera so I can capture some of those great things that my kids do. So I work a little harder to get that extra money needed to buy the camera. Then I think, why. In the time that I spent making the extra money for the camera I just missed out of 100 great things that my kids just did. So I’m back to why.

Why do we stand outside and look up at the stars? Why is it that the first thing that I do in the mornings is scratch my ass? Is that something common amongst men? Why would I even type that? Really, why am I sitting here doing this…hmmm…I don’t know and I probably will never understand or even answer any of these questions. So I’m back to why.

Why do we work so hard at growing up so early so we can work hard to retire? Why do bad things happen? Why do I fight sleep so hard just to sit here and type “WHY”? Why do I have all these thoughts running through my head all the time? Why is it that having all these thoughts running through my head all the time keeps me up at night? Could it be that we are creatures of thought? Could it be that our minds race from one thing to another for a reason? I don’t know and I probably will never understand or even answer any of these questions. So I’m back to why.

Why ask Why? That is the question.

More on Good versus Evil

Jan 24

My wife sent me this in an email a few days ago. I thought that I would share it with everybody because it goes along with my earlier post about Good versus Evil.

Did God Create Evil?

The university professor challenged his students with this question: “Did God create everything that exists?”

A student bravely replied, “Yes, he did!”

“God created everything?” the professor asked.

“Yes sir,” the student replied.

The professor answered, “If God created everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to the principal that our works define who we are, then God is evil.”

The professor was quite pleased with himself and boasted to the students that he had proven once more that the Christian faith was a myth.

Another student raised his hand and said, “Can I ask you a question, Professor?”

“Of course,” replied the professor.

The student stood up and asked, “Professor, does cold exist?”

The professor replied, “Of course it exists. Have you never been cold?”

The students snickered at the young man’s question.

The young man replied, “In fact sir, cold does not exist. According to the laws of physics, what we consider cold is in reality the absence of heat. Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body, or matter, have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (- 460 degrees F) is the total absence of heat. Cold does not exist. We have created this word to describe how we feel if we have no heat.”

The student continued, “Professor, does darkness exist?”

The professor responded, “Of course it does.”

The student replied, “Once again you are wrong, sir. Darkness does not exist either. Darkness is in reality the absence of light. We can study light, but not darkness. In fact, we can use Newton’s prism to break white light into many colors and study the various wavelengths of each color. You cannot measure darkness. A simple ray of light can streak into a world of darkness and illuminate it. How can you know how dark a certain space is? You measure the amount of light present. Isn’t this correct? Darkness is a term used by man to describe what happens when there is no light present.”

Finally, the young man asked the professor, “Sir, does evil exist?”

Now uncertain, the professor responded, “Of course, as I have already said. We see it every day. It is in the daily example of man’s inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil.”

To this the student replied, “Evil does not exist sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a term that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when God’s love is not present in man’s heart. It’s like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light.”

The professor sat down.

The young man’s name … Albert Einstein.

John 15:12
Jesus said, “Here is my command. Love each other, just as I have loved you.”

Sick Or NOT

Jan 17

I hope everybody had a good weekend. I started my weekend being sick. I was sick for the last week or so and I was just about to go to the doctor, I couldn’t take it anymore. Saturday I felt a little better then worse Sunday. Come Monday I felt a lot better and then today I feel like what ever I had is just about gone…thank GOD.

It’s funny how life is when you’re sick. I feel like I was asleep for the past two weeks. I know that I was grumpy and hard to be around…sorry Mari, Zack, and Zoe…haha. I finally had a good night sleep last night…man that makes a major difference.

I need to work on establishing good sleeping habits, better work schedules between my job and my company work. And I need to get back into the groove of church.

I had another dream that I want to post about but I haven’t quit gotten it yet…haha…when it makes sense to me then I will see if it makes sense to ya’ll.

My thoughts for the day.

Jan 13

Thanks for all the comments on the last couple of posts. I am having trouble talking today, literally. I have been sick for about a week now with what I thought was nothing other than sinus drainage. It has done nothing but get worse each day and today, it has held true to the pattern. It is to the point that I might be going to the doctor soon to get that infamous shot in the butt. One little pinch then all is better. I think I’m going to go home early today also. I have tried to work straight through with this crap but I’m going to let it win today. It is funny how just being at home makes you feel better.

I hate my work ethic…haha. I feel like I need to get everything done everyday and I can’t stop till then. Well, that is changing today. It’s not that I’m going to not care I’m just going to work as hard as I can each day. If I don’t finish the work will be there tomorrow waiting. Those of you who know me know that this has been a major problem for me. It is not healthy for my body, my marriage, my children and I’m not sure if it is healthy for my job. My theory on this is: If I focus on the important things like my marriage, my children, and my health then my work will actually turn out better.

Marriage: happy and I only have one chance at it.

Children: happy and they will remember the good times that we had and not that daddy was never there because he was always working.

Health: good and if it is not good then what is the use, I’ll be dead and nothing will matter then. So I think I had better be more health conscious so that I can achieve all the above.
