DEAR LORD, THIS YEAR YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE ACTOR, PATRICK SWAYZIE. YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE ACTRESS, FARAH FAWCETT. YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE SINGER, MICHAEL JACKSON. I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW, MY FAVORITE PRESIDENT IS BARACK OBAMA. AMEN...Facebook.
This was posted by some people who know Jesus. Really know Him. They have been in the trenches with Him concerning life, death and loss. While humor is subjective, this kind is never funny, I don't care who you are.
There are times in all of our lives when we need to make a correction. What we think is what we do, like it or not. You can fool some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time. I am in the middle of making a correction in my life now. One that I thought was a good thing but turned out not to be. Doesn't have to be mind blowing but again, when thinking involves doing then pretty much everything can become a big deal pretty fast. It won't take a lot of work or effort to make the correction, might take some discipline. Anything but discipline... well, considering the Diet Coke experience, maybe it won't be so difficult.
Not sure how of the process where we come to know something needs correction. Wish I could say I had a nice comeback for the Facebook comment. It still burned my britches late last night as I was recounting the experience to DH. He said, maybe they are trying to be funny., even though he agreed, it wasn't.
It doesn't matter if you are a die hard fan of one politcal party or another,
God comes first.
It doesn't matter if you think you have the gift of a stand up comic,
God comes first
It doesn't matter if you have to make a correction to your life to get it right,
God comes first.
Just do it and let's get on with it. Correction made, ready for the next one...
