Randomness...

Random things I had to share:


1. Star Trek the new movie... a must see. Blake and I went last night on our official Date Night... we worked out first and then went to the movies... My friend Corrie had suggested it on her blog and I have been a fan since I was a little girl... I went to sleep at night watching Captain Kirk in action... but there was no going to sleep last night while watching the new and improved Captain Kirk. If you can get past the first scene (all moms will cry) and the last scene (Captain Kirk sittig cross legged in the captain chair)... you are good to go... enjoy the ride upon the U.S.S. Enterprise.

2. You have not taken a TRUE yoga class unless your instructor is from India and his name is Master Suresh... not sure if he picks on me because I am the only WHITE person in the class or if I am that good bad. The class is for 1 hour and 45 min. on paper but truely 2 hours and he will twist,pull, stretch, contort your body in ways you never thought possible... he does not just sit in front of the class and call out commands... he is right behind you, with both hands on your body, and pulling/twisting, etc... just to get that maximum stretch... my body not only shakes (when it reaches it limit), sweats, pops when he pulls/twists, but I feel so good afterwards and can't wait until next week... you have to take his class..

3. What is up with the age of 30... Ever since I have turned 30 I have found out some new things about my body... spicy foods = acid reflux, to much sun = sun spots on my skin, fatty foods = lbs in new areas of the body, not enought light = squenting when reading.... why is 30 so magical... can't wait until I am 40.

4. Faith... why do people say that Christianity is a blind faith? As Ravi Zacharias put so well in his book "Jesus Among other Gods" states... "Faith in the biblical sense is substantive, based on the knowledge that the ONE in whom that faith is placed has proven that He is worthy of that turst. In its essence, faith is a confidence in the person of Jesus Christ and in His power, so that even when His power does not serve my end, my confidence in Him remains because of who He is"... God is real and alive... there is nothing blind about that.

5. Recently, when studying other popular Asian religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, etc.) I have found that when compared to Christianity... there are many differences but one that has come to life today is that Christianity (the belief in the ONE true God and His son, Jesus Christ) is the only religion where the Leader/Creator (per say), our God, has encouraged its followers (Christians) to use their mind 'in following' Him. Most 'popular' Asian religions (by what I have read so far) encourage their believers just to follow (no questions... stay close to enlightenment...etc.) I am thankful that my God encourages Questions/Debates, always has a listening ear, and always has the answer that is built on TRUTH.
Mark 12:30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.
Romans 8:5 Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
Philippians 2:2then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.

I thought I would start off light and end with a bang... he he he... just a little snip of what happens in my head on a daily basis... enjoy.

GREAT post! Where do you take that yoga class? And I am going to try to see the movie! I was never a huge fan, but the movie looks good. Love the quirky comments :-)

Corrie said...

So glad you liked the movie! Lots of eye candy, eh? I told Scott that's one we'll be buying when it comes out on DVD.

I'll have to give yoga another try. I tried it several years ago, but I was too immature for whatever class it was I took. The instructor put us in the "wind release" position and told us that if you need to release some wind, just go for it. Umm.... purposely fart in a room full of people? Nope, don't think so. I thought that was just too funny, which is why I decided I'm too immature for yoga.

Love the random thoughts!
