The Gift Of Pain

On the Our Daily Bread website, I found this video. It's about a doctor who went to India to help the outcasts who had leprosy. People with leprosy lose feelings in infected areas and their infected limbs get damaged by being banged around. He wrote a book with Phillip Yancey called The Gift of Pain. Dr. Brand says pain is a gift from God that needs to be present. Pain without fear hurts less.

Old Fleetwood Mac Songs

Here are three from the 70's. I've had Over My Head going through my head over and over so I decided to look it up. I had forgotten who sang it. (Warning they all mostly sound alike-- I'm kinda boring like that.)

Does Anybody Ever Play This Video Game Anymore?

When I was a teenager my older brother used to take me to arcades and we would play games like PacMan, Centipede, DuckHunt and Frogger. They definitely can't compare to the video games my kids play but I think they have their place.

I found a site that has a "real" looking pacman game on it. I play it on my laptop when I'm watching TV. My sons and daughter laugh at me and say I'm becoming like them, addicted to playing video games all the time.

I just remember there was a teenage kid at a certain arcade in Collinsville and he could play it the best I've ever seen. He always got all the points in every way. I didn't even know his name I just stood there and watched. Man!! I still have a lot of admiration for that kid playing that dumb video game. He must've spent $50 on quarters every week or else his dad owned the arcade.

Why do I still respect that kid? I don't know. It's just something that got engrained into my memories. So now that I've found a good PacMan game, I keep practicing and playing it too much with the silly unproductive goal of beating some teenager from 20-something years back in a game of PacMan. At least, it's free now!!!

At This Moment

If I could just hold you again . . .

. . . I'd fall down on my knees, kiss the ground that you walk on.

If you'd stay, I'd subtract 20 yearssssssssssss from my life.

How could I hurt you, when darlin', I love you and you know, I'd never hurt you.
Such dedication is absolutely beyond all I could imagine (ha)!


Foodie Rules

Three Rules Foodies (people who love food) should follow:

1) Food is mainly a tool. Have an attitude to eat healthiest foods first and most of the time
2) Food is for fellowship. When it's time to enjoy loved ones and friends around a meal, enjoy everyone and enjoy the meal, just don't gorge. Eat a reasonable amount.
3) Food is for pleasure. Enjoy favorite foods. Thank God for whoever invented ice cream. We live in a time far better the even the kings of long ago.
