Today is the day! The carpet installation is today! I admit that my Hubby did loads of work – almost all of it in fact – emptying the rooms. He can certainly accomplish a LOT when he wants to, in a very short amount of time. By the time I get home it will be installed, and we can start putting things back together. It’s going to be great!
Verse of the Day
October 25, 2018
Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Thoughts on the Verse of the Day
Hearts full of thanks — that’s what makes for good singing! With Jesus as the source of our salvation and center of our future, how can we not sing! But singing is not just for us and God. God wants our songs to bless others. It is our ultimate spiritual talk.
Food for Thought
I’ll have to get back to the history of Halloween tomorrow – my writing time was spent getting things ready for the carpet installation.
Chucky, the Notorious Killer Doll Day – I can honestly say this is one I never would have thought of, much less chosen to celebrate, but with Halloween just around the corner it makes sense. Chucky is a notorious killer doll in horror films, who was apparently possessed by a serial killer who used voodoo to transfer his soul into a doll. Chucky goes on killing sprees and misadventures, refusing to die even when he was blown to pieces. Chucky even took a bride and had a monster child that was on the loose. These are things I never would have known since I don’t watch this movie genre, but heck, if horror movies are your thing, then please, be my guest and watch this creepy pint-sized monster with the evil stare and stitched up face and get a bit of scaredy-cat going on for the upcoming night of creepiness. I’ll pass on this one myself.
Punk for a Day Day – Oh my goodness – I remember when punk was popular when I was in school. Do they still call it punk? Or is it something else now? I just showed my age, didn’t I? *sigh* Anyway, just for this one day, dust off the spiked jewelry and get out the ripped fishnet stockings and act like a misunderstood teenager! It’s a day to be rebellious, mainstream hating punk and face it – it’s the only day you may consider wearing a black tutu. This is a celebration of the unique, creative and slightly dark – something that started out as a sign of rebellion against the establishment but caught on and became a popular mainstream thing instead. Oh, the irony, right?
Sourest Day – I’m sure we all know people who view life from the most sour of positions, going around looking as if they have a lemon wedge stuck in their kissers. At my old job I worked with several of the sourest, most irritable, irritating and incredibly self-centered people I have ever met. It took me awhile to get from wishing them the worst, to knowing that what goes around comes around and that life will get them without any wishing on my part. I suppose that this day is for people like them, but the sad truth is that miserable, mean-spirited, hateful people won’t recognize themselves in any of this. If you feel life has given you lemons, then sourest day is the day to shout about it. You can reserve the right to be grumpy, irritable and sour about the world and everything in it. If on the other hand, you view life as always being at least slightly positive, you take those lemons and make lemonade out of them today!
This Day in History –
1983 – U.S. forces invade Grenada.
Food Celebration of the Day –
National Greasy Foods Day – Greasy food is delicious – no matter how much we try to avoid it or make healthier choices – we can’t get around the fact that it is really tasty stuff! Fried chicken, pizza, nachos, French Fries . . . even donuts! Not all oil is created equal though – if you really want to eat delicious greasy food choose oil that is better for you – olive, palm, pumpkin, sunflower and coconut! Heck, even butter and lard aren’t so terrible. Stay away from canola, soybean and corn and you just enjoy the day!
I’m off to work, happy that it’s my Friday, and happy to anticipate getting the house put together again. God bless you! I’ll see you tomorrow!
