Strange day in deed....

It was such a strange day today...

First off TES is sick as can be. I think it is a cold but I feel so lost without her by my side. I feel like I am missing a major organ.

I went swimming yesterday. I really do not like public pools. I was told I could not wear a t shirt while in the pool... I pointed I that it was strange I could not wear a t shirt but a kid could show 6 inches of butt crack... strange rules.

Then I noticed that my brand new LG Chocolate was in my short pocket... after I was in the pool. I tried to dry it out... so now it is a brand new dead LG Chocolate... I finally could afford it with the upgrades... but now most likely will have to go back to my old phone. I am bummed.

Today we had a family reunion. As my mom was heading out to get the food, her car would not start. She cannot get the key out of the ignition sometimes so it runs the battery down. I jumped started her car and she was on her way.

I then received an email from Ingrid Schlueter of Slice of Laodicea. She wanted to apologize to me and wondered why I "hated" her so much. I told her I do not "hate" her... never have never will. I disagree with her on many things...

She stated it was because of my "parody" blog... which I pointed out I am harder on the emerging church and "attack" my own friends! I also pointed out I am writing from an ODM viewpoint... I hold up the standard they have set on others and point out when they fail...

Now, it is strange when someone who calls 14 year old girls, "painted girls of Sodom" and states other sick and hateful things, thinks that me pointing out that this is wrong as hateful. I find it strange that some will judge and condemn Richard Abanes for an alleged lawsuit threat, yet they have done that very thing in the past and have closed down a site. I find it strange that I point out that Chris Rosebrough threatened to sue Richard Abanes... and I am hateful for saying it is all hypocrisy... I think the real issue is that I am holding their standard up to them... and they are seeing it for what it is and see it as hateful... well it is a mirror of sorts for them and that was my hope. I hoped they would see their own hate back at them... from one of their own who holds to their standard and calls them on it when they fail.

I find it strange that while some misuse Jesus to judge and condemn others, though Jesus did not come to condemn us, but to save us... that when I point out how wrong that is, I am hateful...

I do not hate any ODM... I pray for them that they have God's best... and that they grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. Though they constantly accuse me of not being a brother... I never call them less than my brothers and sisters in Christ.
Now I do appreciate her apology. And if I hurt her I am sorry, yet I suspect the hate whe sees is in me, comes from what she sees in herself... My prayers are with her.

OK, now back to the real world.

TES was too sick to go to the family reunion... so I gathered the kids and went... and as I drove there I felt like I could throw up... Sick to my stomach.

I helped get things set up and just felt worse and worse... I finally had enough and came home. I laid down for a bit hoping things would settle and fell asleep for 3 hours! I woke up and no one was home. TES had taken the kids for their "nap drive". It seems they only nap when we drive... so TES took them for a drive and them stopped somewhere and slept a bit herself.

It was a strange day indeed.

Oh... and this is my second time I wrote this post... the first was lost when my "IE" crashed.

Be blessed,

Might I ask what kind of car your mom drives? I've run into a similar issue with my mom's 2000 Dodge Caravan, although I'm not sure what the problem is. Does it happen with various different keys, or only specific keys? Also, if that happens, what has sometimes worked for me is to find something you can use to hit the key straight into the lock three times. Make sure you hit it STRAIGHT IN, DON'T hit it at an angle or you could break the key off in the lock, and then you've REALLY got a problem! As I said, I don't know why this happens, but maybe this will help you and her.

It is a 200 Buick... and I have to shake the steering wheel violently to get the key out... I figured that out, out of frustration.

It does not seem to matter what position the wheel is in... it is just strange.

I am not sure if it is just that key... I have only tried the one she uses...

I think she is going to take it in to have it looked at on Monday.

What can I say? By the time I read this it is already a new day. Let's hope this one is better.

I really did feel for you, but I couldn't help but smile. You have a touch (only a touch) of the misanthrope and I really like that!

Wass it the reverse Midas touch?
