5 1/2 Things I Wish I Didn't Know So Much About
Here are a few things I wish I knew a little less about!
-1 The Birth of a Child: I don't care what you think this is supposed too look like, or what type of film you saw in health education; when it's your kid, things are different. It is common for couples to say "we're" pregnant. If that is the case, then we should both receive an epidural. It seems folks tend to forget the ugly part. If you have a healhty baby, it makes it so much easier to be "fond" of this experience.
Genesis 3:16 To the woman he said, "I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children.
-2 Car Accidents: It's best if you just get hit from behind. If you see it coming, not only does it make your navel pucker, it is not a blessing at all. I suppose, if you see it coming, you might have time for a short prayer, which; may not be as effective as required - but go ahead and ask anyway. And why do they make you get out in the middle of traffic to trade papers where ther is often no a bathroom around? Tow-trucks should have porta-potties. We can GPS anyone on he planet (well not Osama Bin Laden), find me and I'll give you my insurance info.
My friend had an accident and the air-bags broke both his thumbs. He had to have the female traffic cop get his wallet out of his front pocket.
John 12:49 For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me.
-3 Politics: If you are like me, you spend a lot time, hoping, praying and trying to convince your stupid friends that Jesus was a radical, not a liberal. And then, possibly you lose the debate. It's worse than a car accident.
Now Jesus was never in front of a King during his ministry on earth. He didn't cozy up with the Jews nor the Romans. John the Baptist, however; was beheaded by King Herod even though the King feared him. (Matt 6:14-29)
Politics and religion don't mix too well, but it doesn't mean that we should stop participating in the process!
Haggai 2:22 I will overturn royal thrones and shatter the power of the foreign kingdoms.
-4 Courtrooms: It's nothing like TV. Skip it if you think that you'll somehow get things to work out. Plan on getting half of the half that you thought you were going to get.
Proverbs 25:7 it is better for him to say to you, "Come up here," than for him to humiliate you before a nobleman. What you have seen with your eyes 8 do not bring hastily to court, for what will you do in the end if your neighbor puts you to shame?
-5 Moving: Here are a few tips for moving.
- Sell as much as possible on Craigslist and give away that rest!
- If you happen to have stuff that you really need to keep, put it in plastic storage tubs.
- If everyone does this, you just need to bring your clothes and a toothbrush. It will be more like taking a vacation.
If you need more help, HERE is a blog I like with more of my wisdom in the comments.
Genesis 33:14 So let my lord go on ahead of his servant, while I move along slowly.
-5 1/2 Sin...
How about you, have you experienced something that was supposed to be great, and it wasn't or ended up in a situation that you would have skipped if it were possible?
