I know there is a 90% chance I can not have a lunch today. Looks like all my coworkers have the same plan. BIG breakfast at McDonalds.

Lost and Found

Found lost sandwich, cookies, and chips. The sales receipt said it was bought at 5:07 today from a Subway. The sandwich is spicy Italian and the cookies are peanut butter. If you are the owner please contact me on my comment section.

My mom and I have been car shopping all evening. We did not stop at a Subway but when we got back to my apartment we found this food in our van. Two logical reasons have risen up in my head. #1 A poor someone made the mistake of thinking our car was there's. They put the food in the van and then left to do something else. #2 The secrete admirer strikes again. Time will tell.

If you know anybody who has lost a sandwich please let me know.

Unhappiness in relationships, according to Dr. Gary Chapman, is often due to the fact that we speak different love languages. Sometimes we don't understand our partner's requirements, or even our own. We all have a "love tank" that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others.

Take the quiz

I found this on beckstrardinary's blog. I've read about 3/4 of this book but was never really sure what my love language was. I felt like all of the categories applied to me. I think part of it might depend on what mood I'm in however; quality time makes sense. I can be quiet but I really crave a good conversation. I like playing cards and just enjoying the company of a person.

Viv Rant

I can't sleep again. When that happens my mind starts racing of issues going on that I might not be fully aware of at my normal functioning level. I would really like to get one them out so I can get some sleep.

I've been angry the last couple of hours. There isn't an exact reason. I've been thinking about how society views Christians. We are all born with the same human/sinful nature. What makes people think that Christians are immune to worldly desires? A close friend told me one time that he felt like he was walking on egg shells around me. I understand that people are going to feel what they feel and I can't change that. It made me feel however; angry, hurt, and incredibly rejected. What makes them feel so special? I've seen other people act the same way my friend did. I wish I can understand the reasoning behind it. I'm human and struggle with issues of anger, envy, lust, greed, selfishness, laziness, and many others. I can easily be condemned. If Christ did not take the penalty for my sins I would be condemned.

The frustration inside me is starting to calm down now. I will take some responsibility for the attitude I mentioned. I haven't been very good at telling my testimony or daily struggles. I can't think of a single person I associate with that knows what I was like before I accepted Christ. That's not right. I will not get into it now. I will say however; that the way I try to live is simply out of love what He has done. My worldly desires and struggles will not go away until I am called home but I know how much God loves every part me.

"I love God's law with all my heart. But there is another law at work within me that is at war with my mind. This law wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is in dominated by sin? Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord..." Romans 7:22-25
