This more eloquently says what I have been feeling for a while (and have said on here before). I like it.

The One Thing Christians Should Stop Saying�|�Scott Dannemiller

(It's not the ONLY/ONE thing Christians should stop saying, but it's one of 'em)
I think he makes a good point regarding the damage done by prosperity Christianity, especially to those in poverty both in the US and elsewhere. But everything, material and otherwise, IS a blessing from the Lord. I can either let those blessings be a tool or a hindrance for the sake of the gospel. Perhaps the real test is to be able to say ''I'm blessed'' in the struggles as well as the successes.

This one has a hyperbolic title and has an interesting male perspective: Why Modesty is Wrong.

the article you shared makes a good point.

but it was well worth reading just to learn about the modesty lifeguards. ; p

I was showing my children some of the toys I had when I was their ages. I had this Barbie and Ken, I posted it on Facebook and my friend said, It's Ron Burgundy and Miss Corningstone! She's right.

I'm just posting here to help get to the second page. You know, the one without the squirting dog at the top of it. ;)

i found this article too fascinating to not post - for a couple reasons.

the study discusses the differences between 5th grade "bright girls" and "bright boys" perception and attack when facing challenge.

while i mostly agree with the conclusions found in this article, i think there's even more to it.

i was always one of those girls who, when asked to work a problem on the chalkboard would work more slowly if i saw someone was struggling. it felt mean to completely show them up. i sincerely don't know if its a gender or personality thing. i wouldn't ever deliberately be wrong, but i definitely worried about the others' feelings.

fast forward a few years. in educational circumstances, the guy i'm usually crushing on is the one who (for lack of a better term) is my competition in school. especially if he beats me or i consider him my intellectual/educational superior at least on some level. in fact, there's a well known joke among my friends that when a guy beats me at a game that i'm good at (or some real challenge for me) then i'm usually going to like him a LOT more after that.
but, it got me wondering (given the article) is this whole excitement over "being beaten at my own game" situation just an opportunity for me to bathe in the nostalgia of a different time?

or maybe i'm just too competitive...

I'm exactly the same way. If a girl beats me at something intellectual or athletic, I'm going to swoon pretty hard. Or even if its simply competitive and comes down to the wire.

Unless its like Words with Friends. Then I'm just like meh.



Also... this article highlights why I want to have a Daughter. So that I can influence her to be different. To be Unique in a way that I have rarely seen. Beyond simply knowing something, I want to teach her to always look for the truth, and always find it.

When I get new strings on my acoustic, this is the next song I'm going to learn (Well attempt to learn anyway, this is more difficult than anything I've learned how to play so far)
