That is what I call the flu. I still have the remnants of it. I have the sniffles and the weird colored junk when I blow my nose. This sucks.
First day, I was at work, the gas station, not the party store. I left early because I knew I was running a fever. Sue me. I am the kind of person that likes to keep my germs to myself. So, there went a little out that paycheck. Then I had to call-in Friday and Saturday. There went that freakin paycheck (That two out of the three days that I was scheduled at the party store, btw.) Good thing they called my hubby in to work at his job. Then I had to call in Sunday. Another day down the toilet. Then Monday came, and my voice was unintelligible. *sigh* Tuesday was a usual day off from both jobs. I was still feeling like crap, but much better than the week before. Wednesday came again, and I was well enough to go to work (gas station). Thursday, party store hell, three days before Halloween, and I am stuck in purgatory (On the register). I hate the register. I have learned to curb my hatred of it at work. It got me written up last year. We didn’t get out of the store until after midnight. It was a disaster, and we were short staffed.
What ever happened to people picking up after themselves?!?!? When did this turn into a society of pigs?!?!? I mean really! IF you don’t want it, PUT IT BACK WHERE YOU GOT THE DAMN THING! WE ARE NOT HIRED TO BE YOUR PARENTS AND CLEAN UP AFTER YOU! I AM TALKING TO THE GROWN-UPS! THE ADULTS THAT KNOW BETTER! MY GOSH, WE ARE PAID TO HELP YOU FIND WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SO THAT YOU LEAVE THE STORE HAPPY! WE ARE NOT PAID TO BE YOUR FREAKING PARENTS AND CLEAN YOUR MESSES! WHAT KIND OF EXAMPLE ARE THE PARENTS OF THIS WORLD SETTING IF YOU JUST PUT THE SHIT DOWN WHERE EVER YOU FEEL LIKE IT INSTEAD OF WHERE IT FREAK’ GOES WHEN YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND?
Okay well, not exactly. Let’s not jump to conclusions here. When he died, he became the intermediary. What? Our who? Huh? The one who counsels us and helps us get closer to God. he speaks to His Father on our behalf. Cool, huh?
Back that wagon up…
What makes him qualified?!?!
He walked a mile, remember? Check this one out. he lived among us so that he could be our High Priest and intermediary for us. Having suffered like the rest of us, allows him to better help us in our time of need.
For the suffering he himself passed through while being put to the test enables him to help others when they are being put to the test.
You hear this every year around Easter. We all know this. I mean, they tell us every year. It’s something we know by heart.
But Do We Really Listen?
I mean do you really let it sink in? Have you ever really taken a look at the words and heard them? Have you listened to the meaning, really listened? I know, for most of you out there, you’re thinking Listen? To a Book? You can’t hear the bible.
It wasn’t until this bible study that I really began to hear what the words are saying.
GOD IS FOREVER
I had to read that three times before I continued. All my life, I knew that He is all powerful. I know that he knows all, and that HE is everywhere.
GOD IS FOREVER
This is deep. I mean deep. He was here when there was nothing, and he will still be when everything is gone. I don’t mean everything as in no more us now. I mean no more earth, stars, or other planets. he will be here when there is nothing again.
He laid earth’s foundation…
Ps 102:25 Long ago you laid earth’s foundations, the heavens are the work of your hands
He made it all. I mean all of it. Take a second to really let it sink in.
Has it sunk in yet? He made everything that we walk on; He made everything we breathe, eat, and look at through a telescope or microscope. Everything that exists, what we can and can’t see…
Sometimes it just takes the right moment for you to actually get what you have been studying, reading, or hearing all your life. If you are, or were, a Christian, you have a Bible somewhere. If you are devout and go to church every Sunday, you a have a Bible that’s been tabbed, highlighted and has notes in the margin from sermons and bible studies that you have done. Here is my question to you…
