Do you need a laugh today? I’m going to make a sacrifice just for you.
So, Sam & Sweet Girl have got Rej & I into this Glee show. (That’s not the admission I was going to make. :P) Yes, it’s very secular and very soap-ish, but hey–I enjoy the variety of characters, and of course the main attraction is the great singing and dancing! Cute to see how they make stories with the songs, too. Anyway, Devon got this Glee-karaoke game for the Wii (Season 1). Not surprisingly, she scores perfect or almost perfect on most of the songs.
I happened to be passing by last weekend when they were singing with Arnie, “Dream a Little Dream of Me”, and decided to give it a try. I think I got 87% compared to Devon’s 100%… but the point is, it’s a good thing I actually looked at the words. In all the years I’ve known that song, I’ve always sang: “Say ninety-nine and kiss me…”
(I STILL have trouble getting the right ones out–“Say nighty-night..”)
Now for my Person of the Week, I think I’ll choose Sam this time ’round, since he flattered me by noticing that I didn’t post yesterday. (He was probably afraid something else had broken!)
When I think about it, ever since high school he’s had troubles & disappointments at every turn. Recently, if it’s not his health (he’s actually been pretty good just lately), it’s computer problems. For this online course they’ve been doing, it seems like they get delayed again and again and again! It’s a wonder that they’re actually not too far behind in it. But plodding persistence, keeping your spirits up and never giving up: gg Sam.
It makes me think that the recent series we’re doing from Hebrews 11 is rather appropriate. As they say “the Ark wasn’t built in a day”; Abraham had to wait an awfully long time before he received the child promised him; Moses spent many, many years leading the Children of Israel to the Promise Land. It may sometimes seem like it’s never gonna happen, but I find it encouraging to remember how long all those guys had to wait.
“Each one of these people of faith died not yet having in hand what was promised, but still believing. How did they do it? They saw it way off in the distance, waved their greeting, and accepted the fact that they were transients in this world.” (Hebrews 11:13)
