Heard an interesting phrase this past week

While we were on our annual canoe trip with the church we did some climbing. Discovery Ministries takes you through some challenge course things and this year we did the climbing wall. Well, afterwards as we were debriefing the experience one of the instructors said something like this, "When we can turn aside our natural inclinations we can rely on the supernatural". Not really heavy stuff, but it hit me how my reactions to situations and circumstances are often very natural or normal, but if I could push my natural self aside I might be able to experience more of the supernatural. God in me.

30 Hour Famine and Doughnuts!

Funny, funny thing. I open this letter that came to the office from World Vision talking about the 30 Hour Famine program that they have been doing for some time now. What cracks me up is they will send me a FREE doughnut gift card for just previewing their material. 30 Hour Famine ~ doughnuts??? I think I'll take the doughnuts.

Top Ten Things You Don't Want to Hear Your Tattoo Artist Say

While I was sitting in the chair yesterday getting my first tattoo, I got to thinking about things you don't want to hear the tattoo artist say.

10. Wow! I've never done one that detailed.
9. @#*! the needles fell all over the floor.
8. I thought I had more of that color, oh well, this will due.
7. Times up, I got another appointment.
6. Hmm...that's not good.
5. Do you have skin allergies?
4. If you don't like it, you can get it lasered off.
3. Where did I put my beer?
2. Dude, you're a bleeder.
1. How do you spell that again?

Maybe you all could come up with some better ones than that.
