You might be an Art Student if.....

  • your professor misses a day because of bronchitis and comes back with a blue streak in her hair

  • you spend an entire class cutting up card board boxes

  • tape becomes very important

  • tacking up assignments to the classroom wall is required

  • it is common to walk into the classroom and find the professor standing on the desks adjusting the lights

  • you frequently have to move the furniture around in the classroom

  • sooner or later you are always instructed to not eat your school supplies

  • you start a project by scribbling all over a piece of paper

  • music is frequently played during class

  • homework is commonly collecting "pretty pictures"

  • you are made to stretch in the middle of class

  • you have to wash your hands multiple times during class

  • you come home dirty

  • you learn about common shapes, squares, circles...

  • "cleanup" is a ritual and has to be taught and enforced

  • your professors tend to be a little....shall we say "spacey"

  • your professors frequently use words like, harmony, beautiful, flowing, etc.

  • your professor can get by with wearing a huge rounded snow globe ring with glitter that floats around in it

  • you are asked to place assignments on the floor to look at them

................Or you might just be a kindergartner...............

crap....(oh shh....not supposed to say that word)

I'm so sick crap.
crap. crap. crap. crap.
please do not ground me for this post.

I am SICK of people being so full of bull that they cannot clearly see everyone around them.
People, using their friends as a means to make themselves seem better. More like-able. The world has enough wicked people in it, those of us who share a christian faith should band together not drive a wedge between us by fake cheesy smiles or insincere kind words. We should truly love one another. I was thinking about love this morning, when i woke up. Love. Real. True. Unswerving, Love. Why do we not love more? Doesn't it sicken you how God asks so little of us, and we ask so much of Him. We do so little for Him, yet, he does everything for us. He loves us so much. And how many times do we turn our backs on Him? I would that we could all love him more.
Last night while visiting some very close friends' church, The pastor was reading Psalms 71, and it really struck me. Such beauty in that chapter. Such a need for God. " Be thou my strong habitation..." "O God, be not far from me..." If we only felt that way at all times. Funny, we don't want God near when we know we're doing wrong. Yet we always want him when we need his help. "O God, be not far from me..." At all times.
Because I have oodles of experience in marriage, i was thinking, when a husband leaves a wife for a while, doesn't she yearn for him? And is there not a more sad sight than to see a couple in which one spouse so attentively aids her ...(did i say "her" this is supposed to be generic :D ) husband , (tehe) and he basically ignores her. He doesn't seem to miss her, he doesn't seem to care. it sickens me all the more, when we ignore our husband. "Be not far from me"
Shouldn't we have a burning desire for him to be close to us?
hahahaha...i crack myself up....we should have a burnin' yearnin' HAHA. laugh. you know you want to.
So...back to the whole "lovin' one another" thing... Another thing i've been thinking about alot lately, in Matthew it tells us to go to our brother when he offends us. But go to him, and him alone. We hardly EVER go to our friend when they offend us! why??? The bible tells us to! And if we do, we've almost ALWAYS gone and talked to someone about it first. "oh girl, did you SEE her!" "Did you hear wha she ha said to me??? "Instead, we have a "better" alternative. Gossip. We gossip continually! Even in our hearts. We tell ourselves terrible things about our friends in hopes that our pathetic selves will seem better. ugh. We are all so full of CRAP.

So God, please be near us always, help us to love each other truly, even just a breath, of that with which you love us, and help us to not be full of crap.

Florida Court Sets Atheist Holy Day \

In Florida, an atheist created a case against the upcoming Easter andPassover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case againstChristians, Jews and observances of their holy days.
The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognizeddays. The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionatepresentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring,"Casedismissed!"
The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, "Your honor,how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas,Easter and others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah, yet myclient and all other atheists have no such holidays."
The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, "But you d o. Your client,counsel, is woefully ignorant." The lawyer said, "Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists."
The judge said, "The calendar says April 1st is April Fools Day.Psalm 14:1 states, 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.'Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is noGod, then he is a fool. Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court isadjourned.
You gotta love a Judge that knows his scripture!This is too good not to forward.
