Well, the mango annoyance has resulted in a fully fledged very normal feeling sore throat, which leads me to think that it might not have just been an allergy (mind you yesterday’s just felt really strange).
Church today, Vineyard. I wasn’t too keen on going. I have these major doubt swings for a yes/no deal as to whether I should be there. It was however really good. Music wise, I’d heard only one of the songs, the others I wish I’d heard earlier, good focus. The sermon was well done. Curiously relevant to some of the passages that have come up in YITS lately.
The following stuck out to me.
…If you preach, just preach God’s Message, nothing else; 7if you help, just help, don’t take over; if you teach, stick to your teaching; 8if you give encouraging guidance, be careful that you don’t get bossy; if you’re put in charge, don’t manipulate; if you’re called to give aid to people in distress, keep your eyes open and be quick to respond; if you work with the disadvantaged, don’t let yourself get irritated with them or depressed by them. Keep a smile on your face. 9Love from the center of who you are; don’t fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. 10Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle.
11Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, 12cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder. 13Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality.
Tonight I am off to Reinhard’s (Acidoz for those who know him only by the gush name) place with Laura, and Jess W to watch Hotel Rwanda. A bit of an impromtu doing that came out of yesterday. Should be good. Haha shall be strange for him having three girls crash his place… not that Connie doesn’t know us 😛
Anyway. I have spent way too much time online today. This is boring post even I know that. Have had a cinnamon toast fettish all day (I think cinnamon toast is some of the American influence on my life… Australians hardly ever have it). Might go find something to eat for tea.
