~ Reading: I had been trying to read "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo", but gave up when I saw that Netflix has it on their "instant watch" lineup. It's in Swedish with English subtitles, but it was a much easier read than the book! I think I had a hard time because I had it in paperback and they made the print so very little. (No, this doesn't have anything to do with the fact that I'm getting older and may have to stop denying that I may need a little help in that department!)
~ Crazy. Did y'all hear about the 10 year old kids in Arizona the other day? There was a big gust of wind and one of the kids ended up 2 houses down, on the roof. I haven't heard anything else, other than the child was in the hospital, so if anybody has any information, please share!
~ Sporadic. Does anybody else have this problem? There are weeks when I find it hard to get out a post every day during the week, but then there are other times when I can't seem to stop writing. Like this week. I had Tuesday's, Thursday's, and this post written before the day I posted them. Now I'm wondering if I don't have another post or 2 stockpiled in my blog somewhere.
~ Confused. The other day I was listening to a Christian Radio station. They asked for people who did good deeds and gave time to charities to let them know. There is a Christian musician from Nashville who is sponsoring a contest: he will join the winner and work alongside him/her as well as give a concert. That very same day, Father Christian posted this scripture:
Take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them; otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father. When you give alms, do not blow a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets to win the praise of others. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right is doing, so that your almsgiving may be secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you. (Matthew 6:1-4)
I knew there was some reason the spot on the radio made me uncomfortable. While I think it's neat that the musician will be joining someone with their charitable work, I think it would've been better if they asked for people to nominate someone that they knew who were doing good things.
