Back: First, thanks for the prayers. My back is still painful but I don’t think quite as bad as it was on Wednesday. I’m moving very carefully and trying not to aggravate it. Continued prayers appreciated. I have way too much work that needs done to be laid up with my back. I wish I had a standing desk right about now.
American Idol: Wednesday night was a mostly “B” night with only three deserving of an “A” in my opinion. My two favorites were Pia and Scotty (yes, Jeff). Lauren’s outfit was hideous and her hair was a bit of a nightmare. I thought Jacob’s comment about why people wouldn’t vote for him was one of the most arrogant things ever uttered on the AI stage. Too bad because it was one of his better performances (maybe a 4.0). He should have gone home on Thursday. I couldn’t believe it when they said Pia’s name. Still can’t believe it. I can’t help thinking that voters are so sure that a ton of other people are voting for someone that they use their votes on someone else. It can’t truly be because Pia wasn’t a favorite of enough people.
A Great Quote: I heard this at Bible study and thought it too good not to share:
“Those who don’t have want some. Those who have some want more. Those who have more want much.”
Wow. Doesn’t that describe the human race—and especially our entitled western culture? From those who have much, much is required. That’s a good thing to remember when I find myself wanting some or more or much.
Now off to work and to rest.
