Being without the Internet for two days last week has shown me three things that I reluctantly admit about my life at work: 1) I’m REALLY good at Tetris, 2) I spend way too much time on YouTube and 3) Even at my job I love so much, I can get bored pretty easily.
Television is the last place I would expect to find life lessons, especially from the clever sitcom known as “Everybody Loves Raymond.” Like “Alias” I am enjoying the show post-broadcast through syndication and DVD and the last couple of episodes have caused me to do some introspection regarding my self-centered nature, the need for others approval as well as other things that I find relating very closely to the main character, Ray Barone. I don’t know if that’s good or bad. Good that I’m learning tough lessons about my human nature, bad that they are coming from the same network that brings me David Caruso from CSI: Miami.
Questions that have been plaguing me for the past few days.
1) Why does every hip-hop video HAVE to be “feature” someone in addition to the actual artist performing. I mean come on, do we really need Diddy making those strange grunts and running to and from the camera in Jay-Z’s latest video?
2) Why is it so much easier to fall asleep on the couch than it is in our beds? I asked this question last night and the only logical explanation seems to be that because we intend on going to sleep in our beds we subconsciously fight it, as opposed to the couch which is a source of couch plopping and sunday napping while watching various programming such as NASCAR.
One of the popular slogans at the OG (Olive Garden) has been “When you’re here, you’re family.” I’d have to give that same slogan to the house church I go to on Tuesday nights. Rarely during my week do i get the chance to be with a group of people whose common element is the love of Jesus Christ and in such an intimate setting where He just comes in and lets us soak Him up through His Word, worship and the taking of the Eucharist. Its a place I feel unified in my thinking, in my passions as well as my desire to grow spiritually. So much love to anyone reading this who is a part of the body known as DCC. You guys encourage me big time.
