I have a subscription with Blockbuster that delivers movies to my mailbox. I am glad that I have it. It's a good deal and I like that I don't always remember what movies are in my Queue, so often I don't know whats on the way until I get an email notifying me something is on the way. Here are my Top 7 in no particular order (the list also includes a few rented from the local Movie Gallery):
1. Fog of War
2. The Painted Veil
3. Saint Ralph
4. The Lives of Others (great German film--highly recommend it)
6. The Illusionist
7. Mostly Martha (the original German version)
In other news today is my first working weekend. I work in the library from 11-5, but the bonus is that I got all of Friday off, free and clear. I figure that's a relatively nice exchange.
Yesterday was pretty low key. I got my hair cut. I talk to my mom and sisters. I bought paint for a painting project. I rented two movies, and got lunch to go from the new little Mexican restaurant. I ordered my lunch and then walked over to the movie store to pick out a couple of movies. And then upon stepping up onto the curb my flip flop got caught and I went flying. Ouch! I tore up my left leg. It really hurt, I even cried and called my mom for sympathy. The worst part is on my foot. I'm not sure I'll be able to wear real shoes for a while.
Besides that I finally got air in my bike tires. I think I'll ride to work today. Should be fun! But before I go to work I should go to the drug store to get some good bandages for my foot.
Have a lovely Saturday.
So I don't have a "regular" tv. But thanks to online tv I watched the season premiere of Grey's Anatomy via the internet while drinking my morning coffee. What a way to spend the morning of my Friday off!
Today I saw a shirt that read, "He died for MYSPACE in heaven."
The past week came and went rather quickly. Probably something to do with the fact that it was a short week because of labor day. Then the excitement of Genevieve being born. By the time Thursday rolled around I decided that maybe I wanted to come over for a quick visit with Alicia, Damon & Fuller. On Friday I drove to Athens, had dinner with Tim & Joanna and watched a movie with them, stayed the night at their place and was out the door just before 8am on Saturday. I arrived in Chattanooga almost 3 hours later.
Alicia and did a little craft shopping, played with Fuller, went to an art show, bought some art then did some crafting. Today we went to Lake Winnie for their PBS Kids day, after church that is. And well here I sit in Alicia's dining room. I've opted to go home tonight because I have laundry I must do and because I'm going to Florida on Friday afternoon the week will be full of preparations.
I love that I don't have to be at work on Monday's until 1pm. Lots to do tomorrow morning!
...and found it to be very meaningful. It spoke great insight and encouragement into my present situation and calling in life.
My Utmost for His Highest
DIFFUSIVENESS OF LIFE
"Rivers of living water." John 7:38
A river touches places of which its source knows nothing, and Jesus says if we have received of His fulness, however small the visible measure of our lives, out of us will flow the rivers that will bless to the uttermost parts of the earth. We have nothing to do with the outflow - "This is the work of God that ye believe. . . ." God rarely allows a soul to see how great a blessing he is.
A river is victoriously persistent, it overcomes all barriers. For a while it goes steadily on its course, then it comes to an obstacle and for a while it is baulked, but it soon makes a pathway round the obstacle. Or a river will drop out of sight for miles, and presently emerge again broader and grander than ever. You can see God using some lives, but into your life an obstacle has come and you do not seem to be of any use. Keep paying attention to the Source, and God will either take you round the obstacle or remove it. The river of the Spirit of God overcomes all obstacles. Never get your eyes on the obstacle or on the difficulty. The obstacle is a matter of indifference to the river which will flow steadily through you if you remember to keep right at the Source. Never allow anything to come between yourself and Jesus Christ, no emotion, or experience; nothing must keep you from the one great sovereign Source.
Think of the healing and far-flung rivers nursing themselves in our souls! God has been opening up marvellous truths to our minds, and every point He has opened up is an indication of the wider power of the river He will flow through us. If you believe in Jesus, you will find that God has nourished in you mighty torrents of blessing for others.
