4.jpgIt’s been a big weekend.

Christmas shopping and Casino Royale (James Bond), a Gush meetup, Sam’s party, a YITS reunion (that semi-didn’t happen)…
It’s also marks the grand event of the gaining (finally) of an embarrassing moment… a repeatable one at least.

So Geoff and I were at the food court getting some dinner (Christmas shopping), I had just turned around to find Geoff after being served and he waved at me to show me where he was sitting.

I payed for my food and walked over and put the change into his hand, “Here you go!”. Moment of pure shock as I realised I had just given the wrong man the money (both were wearing blue shirts) the look on the guy’s face was priceless.. He gave me the money back very quickly somehow and I mumbled, “Uh, wrong guy”. Geoff was at the next table. I laughed pretty hard and was pretty red  for the next while. It was all very amusing (after) and I really don’t ever want to repeat it.

Old Red Hat

I enjoyed it in it’s difference and it’s simplicity. I also like that despite it’s simplicity a little extension on the idea (etc) could take you down a blistering highway of discovery. And I’ll really stop making up furry metaphors now… it doesn’t work very well.


In order to remind myself and to begin thinking about how well this still works (or should be working) in regard to well… a lot of things. Life for example. This is the mission/vision statement I wrote for myself a little over a year ago:

I will live with integrity and an understanding of where I stand in relation to God. I will make a difference to the individuals around me by actively listening and putting their needs before my own. I will develop and use any means of communication that have been given to me to positively influence and impact others. I will never be content with a bystander attitude or a passive existence. I will allow myself to fail in order that I might grow. I will seek to develop my character and discover my potential but not allow it to control me. I will glorify God in all areas of life: spiritually, physically, emotionally and mentally.

Idealistic perhaps? NB. It is a ‘Vision’ statement, although it’d be nice it doesn’t have to be, and realistically probably can’t be spot on perfect all the time.

I also found this verse the other day,.

It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us. And now, dear lady, I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another. And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.
-2 John 1:4-6 (emphasis mine)

Do you have any verses that have strongly dictated your life: over time? for a short period? Do have a mission/vision type statement? I am curious. Satisfy me.
