Hope vs. Discouragement
We can all get discouraged at work from time to time, even if you have the greatest job, boss, co-workers, and salary on planet Earth. Don’t know why, but I have been struggling over the past couple of days with thoughts and feelings of discouragement.
It finally occurred to me today that I need to start speaking life into my spirit if I want things to change. Proverbs says “words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose. So here are some verses I’ve been speaking over myself today. Maybe they’ll be helpful to you as well:
Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul? Fix my eyes on God—soon I’ll be praising again. -Ps 42:5
Don’t get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith. -Gal. 6:9
Be brave. Be strong. Don’t give up. Expect God to get here soon. -Ps. 31:24
God holds me head and shoulders above all who try to pull me down. -Ps. 27:6
God, your God, is leading the way; he’s fighting for you. -Deu. 1:30
People with their minds set on you, you keep completely whole, steady on their feet, because they keep at it and don’t quit. Depend on God and keep at it because in the Lord God you have a sure thing. -Is. 26:3
This morning I mentioned how I’m having a hard time getting into the spirit of Christmas. This is a bit unusual for me since I’m usually the first one to get involved, acting like the perverbial Christmas Cheerleader. Not this year. Everything seems like a hassle. I go to the mall and see only stuff I can’t afford and don’t really need. I think about getting out the tree then fixate on how much furniture I’m gonna have to move to get it up, and so on.
I miss Christmases when I was a kid. Everything was magical, and in my house, Santa was real, reigndeer could fly and once a year everything was right with the world. (Hard for me to find now that I’m a grown-up.) So this year I’ve asked God for something special. I want to be part of a Christmas miracle. I don’t know how it would work, I don’t have any expectations, I just want to bring a little Christmas magic to someone else, by being an answer to prayer. Maybe then I’ll be able to live Christmas like I lived it as a child.
Looking forward to the last of the Presidential debates tonight, and not just because of SNL. Tonight I get to play Presidential debate bingo for the last time for the next 4 years. **sigh** So I’m looking for buzz words that may come out of the mouths of both candidates. Here are a few I’ve come up with. Feel free to add any I might have missed.

I think this is why my plants won’t grow…
Mullet Watch 2008
Well, I’m back from Bristol, and sadly…I didn’t see any mullets. But I did see one awesome race! Here are some of the photos from the track. I may be posting video soon.
This is Zack playing drums on his Grave Digger Monster Truck and trash truck. He is using a hammer and screw driver for his sticks.
Mullet Watch 2008
No mullets yet. But I did have fun looking at those amazing cars!
On Vacation, Off to have NASCAR fantasies in Bristol!!
It’s been said this is the hardest sporting event to get tickets to, and I am blessed to be able to go. Bristol night race baby!! Boy do I have really nice friends. Even though I am technically on vacation I will be on “mullet watch” for the remainder of the weekend and reporting back in. I may even call Brennan a time or two. Check back with me tomorrow when I’m sure I’ll have more than a few mullet pictures to share.
GO TONY STEWART!!!
What Michael Phelps EATS!!
If you watched the little special NBC had on Phelps yesterday you learned that Michael Phelps is not only a swimming machine but an eating machine. By order he is supposed to consume between 8000 and 10,000 calories a day. After the segment was over, Bob Costas ran through what his typical breakfast is:
“…Three sandwiches of fried eggs, cheese, lettuce, tomato, fried onions and mayonnaise, add one omelet, a bowl of grits, and three slices of french toast with powdered sugar, then wash down with three chocolate chip pancakes.” -Costas
If only I could be so lucky.
