Randomness and a Little Preaching.

Sorry I've been so delinquent in my posting lately -- I've been so preoccupied with trying to keep doing normal life while being a world reknown actress as yet undiscovered . . .

Oh, come on. I'm kidding. I have a VERY small part in a local play. My daughter Babydoll is the star, second only to her good friend Shana, who is actually The Big Star. Of the play.

Anyway! Here is my family's latest obsession. Some kids do crack. Our kids do this:

I am not even kidding. The shopping list for yesterday stated "Crack Dressing."

Mama Belle over at The Bayou Belles and Their Beau asks this:

Please, oh please, tell me ... what is the deal with "Twilight" and grown women's fascination with it?

I would also like to know why everyone seems to be bent on filling their minds with all this vampire crap garbage. Folks, it's about VAMPIRES. If the story were this wonderful fabulous love story between Satan and some gorgeous goblin, would you feel the same way?

In the past two weeks, I read three books that I found to be incredibly good. They are "The Circle Trilogy" by Ted Dekker. No vampires. Just a good story about a killer virus that's going to annhiliate the world, and the unequalled love story between Jesus and His bride. No kidding; everytime I think about God now, I think about this love story. Talk about romance! And suspense, and action -- this trilogy has it all.

No vampires. Just these things from Philippians 4:8:

Summing it all up, friends, I'd say you'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious--the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. (The Message)

During this Christmas season, the best thing we can do is fill our minds with the things that are all about Christmas -- not things which are about our Enemy.

And as my husband often quotes -- I truly do apologise if I stepped on your toes. I was aiming for your heart.

To be honest I feel the same way about Harry Potter and a dozen others!

You go girl. Aim at the heart, and you'll hit the ones who can be hit.
