Hollywood couples...sigh...

I've been thinking about Hollywood lately. The whole Zanessa/Vanessa (Hudgens) scandal started it. It makes me sick. I can't even listen to/watch HSM (High School Musical for all you cultural ilits) without thinking about that! It wasn't eve her scandal that started it, it was all those disgusting pix of her & Zac (Efron) in Hawaii. (That reminds me, I hate those names for celb couples like, "Brangelina" & "Zanessa" & "Zashley") And it was also watchin High School Musical the Concert & seeing Vanessa & Ashley's (Tisdale) outfits & dances. Not to mention V's song! *Shudders*







Then there's Nicole Richie & Joel Madden. For those who don't know, Joel Madden is in "Good Charlotte". A band that is anything BUT! Richie & Madden are apparently engaged, & expecting. But that doesn't seem to stop Madden fom going back to ex girl friend Hilary Duff. Madden was said to be the "Love of Duff's Life". Wonder why. It really seems so sad though, that all these beautiful, rich, famous girls hace to fall all over them selves for a stupid guy! Take Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie. They have been a couple for years & even have a kid or two, & Jolie is arguanly one of the most beautiful women in the world. But, does that stop Pitt from going to stuff with ex wife, Jennifer Aniston? NO! Hmm, I detect a pattern here. "Hot" (I put in the "s case I think Madden & Pitt are both ugly. 'Nother post.) guys get "hot" (Again, "s cause Richie freaks me out!) girls, something happesn (In Richie's case, gets pregnant) & guy gets another girl. ("Ooh! Momma! Look! Modern day harems!") I don't know about you, but I think this may explain a small part of the lack of self-respect that many girls have. I know that 've seen stuff just like this happen to my own friends. Beautiful, sweet girls, dating some loser jerk because they want love. EVEN THOUGH they KNOW the guy is cheating/using them. So, thanks alot Hollywood. I do have a piece of advice for those cleb girls, "FIND JESUS & A NEW GUY!"

I love this!

One Nation, "Under God".

One day a 9 year old girl was sitting in a classroom. The teacher was going to explain evolution to the children. The teacher asked a little boy:
Tommy do you see the tree outside?


TEACHER: Tommy, do you see the grass outside?


TEACHER: Go outside and look up and see if you can see the sky.

TOMMY: Okay. (He returned a few minutes later) Yes, I saw the sky.

TEACHER: Did you see God up there?


TEACHER: That's my point. We can't see God because he isn't there. Possibly he just doesn't exist.

A little girl spoke up and wanted to ask the boy some questions. The teacher agreed and the little girl asked the boy:
Tommy, do you see the tree outside?


LITTLE GIRL: Tommy do you see the grass outside?

TOMMY: Yessssss!

LITTLE GIRL: Did you see the sky?

TOMMY: Yessssss!

LITTLE GIRL: Tommy, do you see the teacher?


LITTLE GIRL: Do you see her brain?


LITTLE GIRL: Then according to what we were taught today in school, she possibly may not even have one!

If only...

You Are From Pluto
You are a dark, mysterious soul, full of magic and the secrets of the universe.You can get the scoop on anything, but you keep your own secrets locked in your heart.You love change and you use it to your advantage, whether by choice or chance.You don't like to compromise, to the point of being self-destructive with your stubborness.Live life with love, and your deep powers will open the world to you.

'Irresistible Revolution'

I just finished 'Irresistible Revolution' by Shane Claiborne. You may have heard of this book-or even read it!-as it has become quite popular among the Christian community. And for good reason! IR's (Irresistible Revolution) author, Shane Claiborne, is a, well, I'm not quite sure what you would call him. I think he's one of those people who cannot be defined by one word. Or even two. Of course none of us can. But some more so than others. I suppose the word that would best speak for Claiborne is, a Jesus Lover. OK, so that's two. You know what I mean! Now, let me explain my choice of words.
I chose those words because the chapter of IR that most impacted me was one where Claiborne was describing a Jesus new to me. (But hopefully not to you.) A Jesus who was more than Sunday School stories & lofty glass images. See, I always sorta wondered, "Why would Jesus bother with me?". I mean, I knew the whole, "God so loved the world..." thing. But, I always just took it for granted. Or thought about it a just a parent/child sort of thing. It never struck me that Jesus loved me. Passionately. And that he would be someone I would want to return those feelings for. Claiborne showed me a new Jesus. A wild, exuberant one. A king. (But not that boring, stuffy kind. Think more along the Lord of the Rings' king, Aragorn.) A Jesus a bit like me. One who felt intense emotions & pain. For me.
A little while before I started IR, I went thru a very hard time where two close friends were arrested, & one came dangerously close. That really shook my world. I remember thinking (& saying), "I would do anything to take their place. So they don't have to go thru this." And then it clicked. "Oh. That's what Jesus did for me." He didn't want me to go thru what he eventually went thru. So he did what I wanted to do for my friends. He took my place for me. He went thru the worst pain (physical & emotional) so I wouldn't have to.
And he did that for every single person in the world. So, if he would do that for them, shouldn't they get the chance to know about it?
Thinkpiece: What if you paid bail for someone you didn't even know, so they wouldn't have to endure their sentence. Wouldn't you want them to know? Well, maybe not. But I'm not very good at this. (I'm only a teen!)
Also, shouldn't people that Jesus loved enough to die for, we love too? Whether that love comes in the form of feeding the poor, giving money, doing mission work, or even opening your home up to others. Whatever your calling is, find it.
That, to me, is the point IR's author is trying to make. So, thank you Mr. Claiborne, for opening up my eyes to a holy God lover.
