Have you ever noticed that when you drive by a dead skunk it never seems to smell when you are right next to it? Or maybe a more pleasant smell would be burning leaves. It seems you can never smell them as you are passing through the cloud of smoke. Only after you drive down the road a bit can you smell them. Why is that? I’m sure there is a scientific explanation for it, but gosh darn it – I just don’t feel like looking it up.
For some reason I got to thinking the other day about the music that I used to listen to while going to sleep. I must say, after a while I got to know these albums so well that I could sing along with them in my sleep. Get it? Ha! Anyway, if you have always wondered what I would listen to as I was drifting off into dreamland…here you go.
Big Tent Revival – “Amplifier”
Burlap To Cashmere – “Anybody Out There?”
Caedmon’s Call – “Caedmon’s Call”
DC Talk – “Supernatural”
The Insyderz – “Skalleluia”
Lloyd – “Thoughts From A Driveway”
Mukala – “Fiction”
Nouveaux – “…And This Is How I Feel”
Plaid – “Understanding God”
Reality Check – “Reality Check”
Room Full Of Walters – “Sleepy-Head”
Next time you are stressed out try this. Wait until no one else is around (gone, asleep, etc.) and get all the ice cube trays out of the freezer. If they aren’t empty already, empty them out and stack them beside the sink. Turn the water on, but way down. It should be only the slightest stream of water. Then fill each ice cube tray up one cube at a time. Shut everything else out of your mind and just watch the water flow down from the faucet, into the tray, and fill up each square completely before moving on to the next square.
I discovered this by accident the other night. All eight of our ice cube trays needed filled up and I was trying to be as quiet as possible so I just had the water trickling out of the faucet. By the time I finished filling up all of the trays I was very relaxed. I am thinking of marketing this – I just know it will be the next big thing. I just need to make an infomercial and then get on QVC. Don’t be surprised if you see me the next time you can’t sleep and decide to flip on the TV. Call within the next 5 minutes and mention this post and I will knock off the first payment…what a deal!
I had a lot of time to think today. This is the saying that I thought up. Why such things invade my brain I have no idea. Haven’t posted anything on here in a while. This is the best I could come up with. Appreciate it. Or make fun of me. Either way.
I wonder if there is life anywhere else that we haven’t discovered yet. Maybe it is a whole other planet of humans or something else equivalent to humans. Or maybe they are more or less advanced than we are. Who knows, but why be so quick to rule out the possibility? To me that just seems very self-centered and closed-minded. Not to mention the limits we are imposing on God by assuming that He couldn’t (or wouldn’t) create life anywhere else. Maybe I’m on to something…or maybe I’m insane. Either way, I’m okay with it.
