Busyness as usual....

The English language is full of weird sayings. "Business as usual," is one of them.

I mean, have you ever thought of it? Busy-ness as usual?
"Hey Fred! How's it going?"
Oh, you know, business as usual.

Implying that Fred is usually busy! We don't call our companies "money-makers" or "profit places", no, we call them "businesses." I work at a business place where I take pride in being busy. Sheesh!

Now don't get me wrong, it is a wonderful thing to have work and to keep busy while at work. No one would argue that work is a good thing and that people who are not diligent in their work don't deserve fair compensation (Prov. 22:29). But I don't think God intended for us to get SO caught up with busy-ness that we would name our work after it.

I think God calls us to work, and then rest, and then work, and then rest. God is not calling us to busyness--that is the Devil's calling. Satan would love to make us so busy that we forget to make time for God and God's Kingdom. Jesus does not want us to be busy, but rather to be diligent in working for Him! I believe there is a powerful difference!

So as you reflect on the extra time you have during Thanksgiving break, remember that it is designed to be rest from work that compels you into a state of diligence, not business.

Threatened By a Baby

My sister always dreamed of having a pet tiger. She is a cat person and so the thought of having a tiger as a pet was always intriguing for her. I figured that was a pretty cool idea but didn't think it was very feasible. Come to find out, there are a bunch of stories out there of people who adopted a tiger as a baby, nursed it, trained it, and now have a house pet that is capable of ripping their head off without much effort.

If you came across a full grown tiger on the Savana you would likely find that to be worrisome. After all, the Savana is the Tiger's natural habitat; you are on his turf and you look a lot like lunch. You know it, and he knows it. And your chances of survival are somewhere between slim and none.

But if you came across a tiger cub you would likely not feel threatened at all. At worst this little tiger cub is going to gnaw on your leg or claw your shin but it would just be irritating and wouldn't even draw blood.

This leads me to conclude that the reaso…

Xmas parties

When you throw two Christmas parties over the course of 2 days to two different music groups at church, and you only get a .231 appearance rate....is it really worth it?

Rent to Own Garages of Greatness

I've recently come into a great partnership. I have often wanted a place to store my tools and keep my car dry on rainy days. But I haven't figured out a good way to pay for such an expensive proposition. Of course I could build one, but I recently found that there is a company here in Ohio who builds these garages for a small mark-up and will deliver it ready to use.

Cincy Sheds offers these garages for sale or in a rent-to-own option. You pay 36 payments on a monthly basis of somewhere around $500 and you own the garage at the end of everything.

Why pay to have storage space at some location at a big storage facility when you can have a storage unit brought to your house? And these look classy too!
