... overheard...

this morning, as i stood in line waiting for caffeination, i heard a woman say

i want my life to be like "sex in the city." i want a core group of girlfriends.

i have to admit that i watched a portion of a rerun last night while waiting for my key lime pie to firm.

i do not want my life to be like "sex in the city."

and alexis, if you are reading this: i am not miranda!!

i always think it odd when people try to align themselves and others with sitcom characters. it amazes me that these pieces of culture have such a formative effect on our thinking. i'm not a character on the cosby show, or 90210... dawson's creek or lost or friends. it's fun, i guess, to imagine how one would fit into the created worlds of drama and scripted happenstance.

but you are not going to find insight into yourself by comparing yourself to or imagining that you are a television sitcom character.

that said, i wish i had been veronica mars in high school. if only i had had mature screenwriters scripting my life in that era....

Hi, Shan. It's Mamala. I pray for you. Daily. Several times, daily. God (yes, that's a capital "G") sees, knows, cares, AND keeps a record. So know, beyond a shadow of any doubt, that the sins of your dad have come calling. Yes, he too went through his atheist stage. And it's a curse. But the God that I serve can break this curse. Being so impressionable to fall for the D. Hopkins' philosophies of this world is a sad testiment of the day and time we are living. Why I'll even venture a guess that Mrs. Hopkins didn't raise him that way. Even the very elect might be lost, if God doesn't come soon. So look up -redemption IS drawing nigh. Don't be lulled into complacency or worse, lose your soul. You only have one.

Collosians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

I love you more than you can ever know or fatham! mom
