You couldn't get more scatterbrained than this

Don't you love a good cliché?

These are the good old days.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

It's not the years in your life that count,
it's the life in your years.

Life is 10% what happens to you and
90% what you do with what happens to you.

Those are all good reminders and are probably all true.  But they all seem to center on ME. 

Much better are the verses I looked at this morning:

The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over
a multitude of sins. 
1 Peter 4:7-8

There are no guarantees about having tomorrow. 
What if this is my last day on earth? 
All the worrying I do is a waste of time. 
How can I get my mind set on what God's concerned with?
What are His priorities? 

Loving people.  Pretty basic.  Also really hard sometimes. 
To love deeply costs me everything. 
It's completely unconditional. 
Doesn't matter how the other person responds - or even if they do.
Not always pretty or fun.

Above all.  More important than anything else. 
More important than my agenda, my time or my comfort.

Lord, help me love others deeply the way You love me - above all.


Here are a few things I found today on the world wide web...

16 minute meal - Mexican Flatbread Pizza
We can always use a good idea for summer meals! 
And this one looks like a winner.

Salad Party
Salads are the perfect summer dinner!

Banana Monkey Bars
Maybe BMB's are the perfect summer dessert?

Balloon Wreath
So cute... and you could reuse this for every family birthday!

Top 20 Unfortunate Lessons Girls Learn From Twilight
Here are the first three
(and I think you should read the rest):

•If a boy is aloof, stand-offish, ignores you or is just plain rude, it is because he is secretly in love with you — and you are the point of his existence.

•Secrets are good — especially life-threatening ones.

•It’s OK for a potential romantic interest to be dimwitted, violent and vengeful — as long as he has great abs.


And that ends my random post full of unrelated stuff.
