COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA:   6 PAX, no FNGs; Lipton, Big Top, Paper Trail, Snookie, Laetner, Tomb Raider

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:   Don’t turn your faith into a business transaction.

You know, I get caught in this often.  I want to see results.  Don’t you?  If I’m pouring out my time, my resources, my energy into this Jackass I had better get a sinner’s prayer out of him/her.  Right?  At least this person should repent, maybe memorize and recite a scripture verse to me.  Maybe acknowledge God, catch themselves cursing and change that F*&k into a Fudge!

You see, I want to see a return in my investment.  Isn’t that messed up that we turn our Love into a business transaction?  I profess to believe that God is big enough to change hearts and minds yet I think that I must see results that fit my timing, my perception, and my schedule.  Instead of my love having no strings attached, I use my faith selfishly.

Examine your actions.  Is your life a reflection of your faith?  Are your acts of Love a profession of your faith?  or are you like me and demanding a return that fits your parameters your timetable? Do you believe that Jesus leads people to Jesus or do you still hold onto the idea that you can fix people?

MOLESKIN:   You know I clearly heard and agree with Snookie who said that the Warmorama should be just that, a warm up.  Somehow, that went in one ear and out the other.

The toilet plunger sound as your back collides with the soggy sod never gets old to me.  I think I got all the grass out of my nethers but time, I’m sure, will prove me wrong.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:   Prayers for Rabbit’s work load and the mental toll it takes.  Prayers for my SIL Carly’s recovery from surgery. Praise to Casey’s recovery and hopeful discharge.  Prayers for Snookie and Lauren’s wedding day; t-minus 11.
