This flame is cool. I like fire. Watching something burn is fascinating and it’s neat to see the constant changing of a fire as it burns. The colors are awesome and bright, and the flame flickering is mesmerizing. Fire is just one of those things that I could watch for a long time…the little kid comes out in me, for sure!
We all need fire to keep ourselves going, in whatever role, we're in - parent, employer, employee, child, student, etc.
I love moving sidewalks, on many levels (I don’t mean escalators, when I say many levels - that is a different post with many other thoughts.). I think these crazy moving sidewalks are cool, a great time saver, fun to ride, a little scary, but mostly I love them, because I beat all those people walking on the regular carpeted area of the airport. Losers!
I’m not talking about traffic, but life. What causes you to pause and pay attention for a moment? What makes you change direction in life? What decides the next step for you? What’s the main thing in your life?
This sign is likely in every small town in America, but when I saw it the other day, I stopped to take a picture and had a flood of thoughts come to me.
This picture shows hundreds, maybe thousands of different little snowflakes. I took it with my iPhone to see how clearly it would turn out, and was amazed at all the different shapes that it shows. I then began to look closer, and realized that many had similarities but were also very different…
I saw this sign while out inviting people to our church with some of our teen boys. I’m only semi-afraid of dogs. They need to be big fanged dogs for me to truly get that tingly feeling of soon-I’m-going-to-be-mauled-and-die. Mostly, I don’t even notice the signs, except for this one…
You've probably seen this picture before...I want to be the optimist.
Some that know me, realize that I’m a half glass full to full glass kind of guy. I most always look at the positive side of life and realize that the bad side of life is for a purpose. Life is not fair and I don’t like it sometimes, but I really believe that there is a purpose for the tough times and bad things that occur in life, even if they are my fault.
I’ve had a lot of things running around in my head lately, so here are some things that I’m positive about…
There's a Christmas song that says "Joy, Joy, Joy!" I don't remember the name of the song, and I know that it is mostly referring to Christ's birth, but as I think about it, we should be repeating these words everyday. We are often caught in the doldrums of what we do each day and we get caught up in the "disaster" or "business" of our day, forgetting to have joy!
