Singing the Blues

I can't live if living is without you. I can't live, I can't live anymore...

(Do you remember that song?)

I am singing the blues tonight. I am deep blue about my lack of DVR. I have missed so many shows that I am used to watching when boredom hits. I found out that I missed Oprah's interview with Lisa Beamer and Mary Winkler. I love interviews. I am a stalker at heart. I caught just a moment of the view today only to find out they have two new co-hosts. Just when did that happen?

I am also singing the blues at the lack of rewind skills with a DVR. I am truly spoiled and evidently am pretty addicted to television. My brain is going through a stage of detox from the world that lives in the small box. I guess that could be a good thing.

One side note: While I was blogging Ernest was reading (what a man!). While reading he came upon a picture stuck in the book of Chibwede. Chibwede is our Compassion child. So here I was talking about my lack of DVR and how sad I am when Chibwede graces my heart. I am truly in want of nothing. It is true, I am a little spoiled.

Thank you, Chibwede, for bringing my mind into focus.


God, you are so good, with or without a DVR.

Oh yeah, I'm addicted to the DVR, too. The funny thing is that I watch LESS TV than before because I just watch what I have taped and never just sit around for half an hour flipping through channels anymore.

I keep each of our CCF/WorldVision kids' most recent photo on the fridge - and nothing else. Ever time I walk through the kitchen or open the fridge I am reminded of them. But keeping their photo in our Bibles/Bible study books would be a great idea so we remember to pray for them, not just think of them...

We watched One Night with the King last night and I thought about you and the other ladies at the Esther study!

Perspective is a beautiful thing.

We are all spoiled in this country compared to most. Our pastor did a sermon series on Poverty this last Sunday and it sure gave me some perspective. So many people are dying of HUNGER or THIRST and I complain that my Chai Tea Latte doesn't have enough flavor. Yikes.

Debra... loved the blog, loved your thoughts for today. Perspective is indeed a wonderful thing, and so -- in spite of the twinge -- is conviction. thanks for giving me both today!
