Friday FunDay, Awkward

It’s Friday, so I thought I would start of your Friday with this very strange viral video that has been circulating around the internet the last few weeks.

Wow talk about awkward moments! I guess that is a pretty good way to start Awkward Moments Day – which of course is today.

Awkward – sort of like a donkey talking to you.

28 Then the LORD opened the donkey’s mouth, and it said to Balaam, “What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?”

29 Balaam answered the donkey, “You have made a fool of me! If only I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now.”

30 The donkey said to Balaam, “Am I not your own donkey, which you have always ridden, to this day? Have I been in the habit of doing this to you?”

“No,” he said. Numbers 22:28-30

Any way moving on…

It is Friday, and March Madness is off in full force. Hopefully you have your bracket complete and are following along and are not so broken hearted by the early upsets!

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13

I have been waiting for months to write a post on 10/10/10, because I think it’s such a cool date.  You know me and “fun with numbers”.  Imagine my disappointment when I realized that it was on the weekend.  “Dime Day” was going to generate some sort of good post about being a ‘perfect 10’ or being well balanced or some other goofy thought that would have popped into my head.

But as usually, I am a little short.  1″ short of 6 feet, and posting on 10/8/10.  That’s just not as cool is it?  It looks more like a test result then a date!

Anyway, falling short of being the perfect 10 is ok, and today we will remind ourselves that we don’t have to have everything together and be perfect to warrant the mercy of God. Its not us, its him!  Sort of like this quote from Ghandi:

“My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.”

and this from Paul in his letter to Titus:

4 But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life

Enjoy the almost perfect day!
