This is Fred. I wrote this 48 hours ago but it took until now to post because DLow had to proof-read it. I really enjoy plane rides. I’m an extrovert and the person sitting next to me cannot run away. Thus I have a captive audience for the next X hours. So I was pretty excited about the…

made my very first uncrustable! there’s just something about the pre-peeled crust and vacuum-sealed bread that makes uncrustables so much more delectable than their crusted counterparts.

however, some n00b mistakes:

  • used whole wheat bread which i love, but doesn’t produce the best flavor combination with pb&j
  • used bread that was too small which made it more difficult for the crust to be…uncrusted
  • used sugar free strawberry preserves which leaves a weird aftertaste
  • not enough peanut butter! self-explanatory.

do yoo recognize the common thread in all these errors? they were all attempts to make the uncrustable less fatty. moral of the story: less fatty = less yummy = not the taste that God intended (ha!).

As I worked my way through some devotional readings, I came across this passage: “The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zephaniah…

random thoughts from a relaxing friday morning

today is friday. yesterday was thursday. tomorrow is saturday…jk.

random thoughts about my future child: when he’s 5 (he for practical purposes), i’m going to start a savings account for him. maybe put in $20 a week. i’ll give him cash and take him to the bank so he can personally see the money being deposited. and with his savings, i will encourage him to sponsor a child in need, $10 a week. i will help him write letters to his sponsored child and help him read the letters that he gets back. and then every night, we’ll pray for the child. maybe one day we’ll even visit. i don’t know why, but thinking of how i will foster my child to sponsor another child…it reallie excites me! but first i will need a boyfriend…drats.

random thoughts about words: this morning as i was going to the bathroom, i realized that i actually reallie love the word shan’t. it’s such a funny word, prolly because it’s so archaic, but it has such a pretentious tone that it almost becomes endearing. i especially like coupling “shan’t” with “it” e.g: it shan’t be long before Christ returns. teehee. see, it makes me giggle so. i think i will try to incorporate it into my dialogues more often from now on.

random thoughts about friends: i hope timur has an awesome day today! i don’t think that will be accomplished by shooting him though…maybe we’ll start with prayer first and see where that takes us.

good truths to abide by

if i want to look decent, i need to wash my hair.

note to others: if i look uglier than usual, and you can’t quite put your finger on why i look different, it’s probably because i didn’t wash my hair.

we tried and tried to loosen the knots
thinking once we’re untangled we’ll be better off
but it’s these failures and faults
that hold us together

misery comes easy

If you want to be miserable, then think about yourself first…what you want, what people are saying about you, what you ought to have done for you, how down you feel, how good you feel. Just focus on yourself.

thanks adrian rogers. i needed that.

What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy
