Manic Monday #117

May 19, 2008


It’s Monday! You know what that is! Woooooo!

OK, so maybe I am a little over excited. But I am sitting in the orthodontist’s waiting room, and I have nothing better to do right now! (Thank God for wireless).

Manic Monday

If you knew that every minute of the next 24 hours of your life would be recorded on camera is there anything you would change about your habits?

Yeah, like, all of them, lol. No, actually– aren’t ALL our outdoor activities being monitored anyway?! I hate all those creepy cameras at the traffic lights, at WalMart, at the library…. I’ve seen those “reality” videos on TV before, where people agreed to be monitored so experts could watch them and help solve their problems. I’m always amazed at the nasty and yukky things people continue to do even with a camera aimed at them. Me, I’d be nicer, and probably neater. Then again, something might get into me to stick out my tongue and make goofy faces. Depends on how much coffee I’d have had.

If you could take a one-month trip to any single destination in the world and money is not a consideration, where would you go?

This is an easy one, because I’m always dreaming about it. New Zealand. Greenland. New York City. Washington, D.C. And Antartica, just to say I’d been there. Oh nuts. Did that sentence say “single destination”?

What is the best example of “perfection” that you can think of?

Jesus. He’s the finest, most loving person, and I am so not. I read about what He did and what He said and it continues to blow my mind away.

The conqueror Napoleon had said of Jesus, “I know men and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between Him and every other person in the world there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creation of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him.”

I think it was the late Dr. D. James Kennedy who said that unlike with man, when we gaze closer and closer to inspect Jesus, we become more awed by His exceptional love and virtue; whereas the opposite is true when we closely inspect any man.

This was a good Manic Monday– got me thinking!

    New Zealand sounds fun. One month in Antartica also sounds cool.

    Happy MM!
