Highlight of My Day

So I have started an Instute class. Basically is an hour each Tuesday and Thursday where I get to study the scriptures with other people my age.

In preparation for class today I was reading John 1-3 and I had pretty much the best thing happen to me--An answer to a deep philosophical question!

For those of you who don't know me well, I am NOT a deep thinker : ) I find that a sense of humor is a great thing to have in life both as a weapon as well as a shield. I have often wondered if our Heavenly Father has a sense of humor. I mean really, it is important in my life, ( and sometimes I look at my life and wonder how He couldn't!) but its a valid thought.

So if you turn to John 1: 9 of the King James Version of the Bible you will have a chuckle. So this chapter talks about when Jesus turned water into wine--A very cool miracle to be sure. To sum it up, verse 9 says that the ruler of the feast didn't know it didn't start out as wine but that servants knew what was up. How it is written is phenomenal. It says, "The ruler...knew not whence it was...but the servants which drew the water knew ;) ..." Okay, did you see it?! Right there at the end! A WINKY FACE!!! He TOTALLY  has a sense of humor! gets better...

Once I realized how cool this was I thought, "Oh! I'll take a picture and show everyone!" I got out my cell phone and my blasted little baby camera wouldn't focus on the text. Bummer. So I grabbed my camera which has a text setting. This has got to work! I thought. It wouldn't focus either. AAAh! Maybe this is a sign...I'm supposed to keep this enlightenment quiet...Yeah right! Its just too awesome not to share. : )

Highlight of my day.

Things to ponder

I have only been on campus for a couple of days now and here are some things I have pondered:

1. Walking rules should be the same as driving--No texting while walking, no headphones while crossing the street, etc

2. Girls should NEVER wear shorts that are so short their butt cheeks hang out- I don't like to see it at the pool, I certainly want to see it in public! That means their butt cheek sits directly on the seat! GROSS!

3. Why do people still make eye motions while they're talking even though they're wearing dark sunglasses?--you know you've done it...

4.There should be some sort of rule about how many times its appropriate to say thank you to someone holding open a door for you. I mean really after about the 2nd or 3rd door in a row, I start to feel funny.

5. Why do smoke detector batteries seem to ALWAYS die in the middle of the night? I think its the battery gods way of getting even with us for not recycling them. Rude.

6. Is it wrong to consider tater tots their own food group?

7. Is it wrong to consider it today (even though its after midnight) just because you haven't gone to sleep?

8. Is it bad that when I have Reese's pieces I have to eat them all. I CANNOT have just a few. I think thats a problem. I have recently found that I have the same issue with candy corn. Uh oh.

9. Why do college kids like to ride in the shopping carts at Wal-Mart? I don't like to have the criss-cross pattern on my butt. I also don't really enjoy the struggle of climbing in and out of it whilst not sending the cart flying and face planting. But, I guess the upside is that the roommate has to do the "heavy-lifting" and push the cart. Maybe they're onto something. ...But then I'd need a roommate.

10. Why do people generally keep to themselves on buses? I mean, think about it-- when was the last time you carried on a full conversation with a complete stranger on a bus? Sure, you're polite but thats about where it usually ends. People are VERY quiet here. Most of them have their headphones in and stare at their feet.  And after my ride to school last week I don't blame them. I was on my way to school and the bus got really crowded. I was sitting on the side seats facing the center of the bus when people started shuffling in and the seats filled up. So, there, right at eye level, was a guys crotch... Now I know why people stare at their feet. ; )
