There is just something about having and spending face time with other people. In a world so text savvy and where Facebook has taken over the earth and is the common communication avenue. Having people over for coffee and dinner. Spending time together is becoming uncommon.

Let’s be Uncommon.

As we seek His face ….

May we also seek others face ….and fellowship

Why should I?

Its not easy when you are trying to communicate and it just feels like the other person has no intention on being reasonable. How about when you find you don’t either?

I found myself saying :

ok…well I have something I want you to see and you have something for me to see. Are we willing to be on the same bridge and meet in the middle on this.

I didn’t get the answer I wanted (I wanted to hear a resounding …..  of course lets make this work. )

I left the situation….sad, hurt, disappointed and angry.

After my reasoning and my imaginary conversations of all the what if’s, and could have said’s…not to mention the angry thoughts exploding in my mind of how I am NEVER, EVER going to again and so on.

It came down to me….(personal responsibility)

Once the emotions simmered down I was able to see ME. I was only willing to be on the bridge if the other person was willing too. That is just sad! A sorry excuse of a Jesus Girl.

Forgive and you will be forgiven!! ( Luke 6:37)

So I made the choice to forgive and stand on that bridge, I heard the other person….am I willing to give?? even when I don’t think it is fair (only because of my self-righteousness and need to see the other person hear me, do for me.) Am I willing to set aside my pride and be humble and serve this other person?

Philippians 2:3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.

Jesus gave when we didn’t deserve it!!! HE LOVED & FORGAVE!! And through HIM, I can do this!

And so can you! …right?

BREAK TIME!

I am taking a break from the normal posting routine … Labor day I took off so I get I am having a blog-cation for the week. LOL!!

Yes that means No Thursday thougths book Im reading….have you read the others..check them out:0) — Thursday Thoughts: Days of Deepening Friendship

Seems like when you take a break from a routine you start another in other places..ever notice that???

Maybe that is the concentration center of the brain only able to change one thing at a time…

MULTI-TASKING!!!  is it even really possible or are we just spreading ourselves thin and not being fully in the MOMENT!! –good question??!!

Ok so since I had that spark of thought here are some quotes for todays thinking …routines, living in the moment, multitasking…

The past is a guidepost, not a hitching post.  ~L. Thomas Holdcroft

“Multi-tasking – Screwing everything up simultaneously.” ~unknown

 “A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints”
~ Wilfred Peterson
  “Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going”
 Tennessee Williams
 “We decide to multitask instead of experience.”
 Michael Rosen

Any thoughts ??!! :0)

Have a blessed day and dont forget to rest once in a while..take a break…even if for 10 mins. Take a half hour nap or just close your eyes.

Do one thing at a time and live in the moment even if for an hour!! Its good for ya!

Be nice to yourself :0)
