Distractions

Have you ever noticed that when you are trying to do something important something always comes up?

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).

How does the Devil devour someone? With a knife and a fork, duh.

So do you know anyone who has ever been devoured? Me neither. Which I guess is good because I would be sad. This is why I don’t think of animals as people. I devour animals with delight. They taste good! Thank God for animals to eat! I mean it. Animals, watermelon and potatoes are all I really need to survive. Iced Tea would come in right after that. But I could do with water.

But if I cant eat an animal, watermelon and french fries today, Ill make due with cereal. I love cereal. I really love Rice Crispies. The regular kind with a little it of sugar, or the chocolate kind or the fruity kind. Man I love them.

I went to Big Lots the other day and they had both fruity and Coco Crispies for less than $2 each! I bought like 15 bags. I mean it. 15. And I already had some rice crispies at home.

Have you seen the trailers for the movie 9? Looks sweet. I mean it

Speaking of games. I traded a guys some Xbox Live months for Farcry 2 a couple days ago and have been playing it. I’m not sure yet if I like it so much. I know other people do. My good friend got in trouble with his wife because when she woke up to get the kids ready for school he was still playing. So if he likes it that much it must be good right? Well I’m trying it out.

My wife and I love Psych, the TV show. Have you seen it? Its gotta be the funniest show on TV. Seriously. We got both seasons and are watching through the

Pastor Ronnie recommended that I read Hood by Stephen Lawhead. I did. Its really good. It re-imagines Robin Hood and makes him cool. No men in tights.

I was on Facebook today and I was checked out all the hidden eggs that you all put on peoples pages. The hidden eggs that are listed right on the front of your page. Hidden. On. The. Front. Of. Your. Page. Lame.

After checking my emails, I worked on some stuff for the church. Volunteer stuff, you know. Well I guess you guys don’t know. You guys never volunteer for anything. Selfish little brats. Well maybe just the guys.

Tomorrow I have to go to work. These last two days were my days off. We worked in the yard like all day yesterday. So I am tired as heck and so my days off weren’t really a restful time.

Oh, but I did light the yard on fire and make my wife go get a bag of sand because she thought I was gonna start a brush fire. Funny.

There are brush fires in Farcry 2. Kinda cool. You throw a grenade and if it sparks it burns everything for a minute.

Weren’t we supposed to be doing something right now? Oh yeah. A devotion. I guess I got distracted. I was reading yesterday that when the Devil fails in devouring us or making God seem fake – he distracts us.

What is he doing to distract you?
