facebook fragments: 5/3/14 – 5/9/14 (stronger than yesterday, annoying prophets & philanthropy)

Came downstairs to see PinkGirl working on a poster board sized map for a geography project due Monday. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast playing DVD.
Me: “Why are you watching that?”
PinkGirl: “I needed something to watch and not pay complete attention to.”

All caught up. Just published my 3rd facebook compilation blog post this week. It covers the last 7 days.
I’m going to try and keep up to date on these. Facebook posts tend to disappear after too long.

Note to self: Do NOT wait until 9:30 to walk on the treadmill.
30 minute HIIT walking program. Done.
I kinda wish I hadn’t promised someone I would do fitness ball back extensions too.

2 Be earnest and unwearied and steadfast in your prayer [life], being [both] alert and intent in [your praying] with thanksgiving.
3 And at the same time pray for us also, that God may open a door to us for the Word (the Gospel), to proclaim the mystery concerning Christ (the Messiah) on account of which I am in prison;
4 That I may proclaim it fully and make it clear [speak boldly and unfold that mystery], as is my duty.
5 Behave yourselves wisely [living prudently and with discretion] in your relations with those of the outside world (the non-Christians), making the very most of the time and seizing (buying up) the opportunity.
6 Let your speech at all times be gracious (pleasant and winsome), seasoned [as it were] with salt, [so that you may never be at a loss] to know how you ought to answer anyone [who puts a question to you].
Colossians 4:2-6 Amplified Bible (AMP)

Me, to FavoriteSon: “You like zucchini?”
FavoriteSon: “no.”
Me: “You ate the baked zucchini fries I made a while back.”
FavoriteSon: “I ate them. But if I remember right, I smothered them in sauce.”
Later..
FavoriteSon, looking at the Parmesan baked zucchini sticks coming out of the oven: “I dunno….”
I added more cheese. Theoretically, if you add enough cheese to any vegetable, it can’t be bad. Right?
#ilovemyson

_______________

My earlier theory has been proven false, at least according to my son (The theory was that if you put enough cheese on any vegetable, it can’t be bad. The vegetable in this case was roasted zucchini.)
PinkGirl: “It tastes like pizza, but healthier!”
FavoriteSon: “It does NOT taste like pizza.”

1 hour strength training session done.
Wowza. Milestones include TWO 2 minute forearm planks between 3 sets of 20 pushups on the Bosu. Also a 1 minute wall squat and a 45 second wall squat between 3 sets of 20 squats holding 20lb dumbbells.
Looking at the rest of my day, I really, really should get my 30 minute HIIT treadmill program crossed off my list.
Wonder If I’ll do it…

PinkGirl’s Friend: “Why is it even called ‘Scooby Doo’? Scooby never does ANYthing. It should be called ‘Velma’. #jinkies

Jesus told his disciples a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart. “And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” Luke 18:8b

Luke 18 1-8 When the son of man comes will He find faith on earth

“Let’s be clear: Prophets can be annoying. They look at the status quo and wonder why it can’t be different. They are impatient for change and are driven by a vision for something better, something clearer, than the rest of us normally see. Perhaps like the biblical prophets, they are driven by a vision for justice or compassion or righteousness that compels them to take risks in order to sound the alarm or heighten the community’s consciousness.”
(from Christianity Today Article: “Do Evangelicals Have Room for Prophets?“)

_______________

“But the problem is this: So often Canon White (and his friends) [prophets] are welcomed among us as visitors…But we are also happy to see them go. It is the rare and remarkable custodial institution that welcomes them in, gives them a home, and encourages them to truly be who they have been called to be. Or that doesn’t just relegate them to the margin.”
(from Christianity Today Article: “Do Evangelicals Have Room for Prophets?“)

PinkGirl, watching Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (for for the 1st time since she was around 6 years old): “Did they ever get the soap out of Dopey?”

Every time a Mother’s Day commercial comes on the air, I’ve been saying,
“Please don’t get me that.” and
“I don’t want to go out to eat on Mother’s Day, it’s 2 hours of my life I’ll never get back.”
Finally, yesterday, PinkGirl said, “We know you never want that stuff, you just like it when we clean your van.”
YES! EXCELLENT present!

I just published a new blog post.
Twitter version: “If Christians aren’t intentional about including opportunities to share Christ as we serve, we are no different than non-Christian charities.”
Click the image below to find out what happened when I risked being ostracized by responding to the Holy Spirit’s prompting.

One hour strength training done.
Milestones include 2 sets of 12 lb kickbacks while standing on the Indo board and then 20 push-ups, 2 minute forearm plank, followed by another 20 push-ups & 2 minute forearm plank, followed by another 20 push-ups & 1.5 minute forearm plank.
Really irritated that I couldn’t do those last 30 seconds.
(these push-ups are on my knees – next week, I’m moving up to my toes, so who knows how many I’ll be able to do)

Trudged through two 30 minute walking HIIT treadmill programs after my strength training today, which means if I want a couple of glasses of cab sav and a square of dark chocolate tonight, I’ve already worked them off.
