Some day in the Rain

An episode of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya shares a title with this post, and a friend reacts, “Goodness, Chris. feel better,” to my long status:

Tornado warning here since 7:45. Sheltering in place from 7:45 to 8:15, almost to the minute. Wasn’t good for me to have my head that close to the floor, or to have gone outside to pick up my food from a nearby restaurant. I’m going home now because I’m starting to get sick, so I’m going to go to Perkins to have orange juice and some chicken noodle soup.

“Jesus said to her, (John 4:13-14)
‘Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again,
but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again.
The water that I will give him will become in him
a spring of water welling up to eternal life.’”

and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)”

Stepping in It

We have three dogs, so they inspired the title; a wave function could model my emotions this week, and words from a friend are inspirational:

“Don’t forget to understand the importance of kindness and generosity. ~
Appreciate everything that you have, and what you fought for. ~
Forgive every day; love like there is no tomorrow. ~”

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. (John 3:16-17)”

Total Eclipse of the Heart

“Thanks again for finishing ‘Justice League,’” my friend Travis said, “And for the continuing education and ongoing ‘re-education of Transformers’ …I have much to learn of all that,” as we had been discussing figures Hasbro had reissued and presently available at WalMart and Happy Meal® toys at McDonald’s inspired by ‘Bumblebee

Later today, my friend Aaron entreated, “Would you like to come over for the Chiefs game at 7:10 pm,” which I accepted, “Great. I will see you around 7:15. I think the game actually starts at 7:20 pm” afterward I am going to visit my friend Josh, whom I have not seen in two weeks.

On the way home, earlier Sunday morning, I was suffering from some diabetic symptoms, increased emotional sensitivity, and I began to feel guilt, regret, and intense sadness about toys I had broken in the past, which was not really about the lost of the toys, but about how I had mistreated something that was given to me in love from my parents, and how I was also disrespectful to persons in a foreign country who had worked to make them. so I was feeling bad about my low opinion of the Happy Meal®toys, which were actually pretty cool. To have a soft heart is difficult for me sometimes.

“For you are my lamp, O LORD,
and my God lightens my darkness. (2 Samuel 22:29)”

Baker Street, Part 2

“Low-key guilt: That feeling that creeps in when we take time to chill. Familiar, Christopher? 3 ways to own ‘the art of staying in’”

“Light in your head and dead on your feet / Well, another crazy day / The sun is shining, it’s a new morning / And you’re going, you’re going home”

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil,
and he will flee from you. (James 4:7)”

MBH – my brain hurts 037

‘If Christopher wanted to title a post, “Sunday without God,”
then God was going to have something to say about it.’

I thought for sure that she had heard me cursing at the vending machine. “I only saw you for the first time yesterday,” she continued, “Do you believe in Jesus?”
“Yes, but I have a problem with cursing.”
“Well,” she suggested, “we could pray about that.”
I had to get to work, so I listened and prayed with her, although I did not repeat the prayer aloud. I have not seen the woman since.

“Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? (Matthew 6:26-27)”

Much too Young (to Feel This Damn Old (Again?))

Three weeks from today I will be forty; that’s not what is making me feel old or keeping me awake this morning. It’s not even my sister making noise down the hall. It’s a worry.

March 17th someone hit the back of my car and drove off. I did not get much of a chance to read the number on the license, so my insurance has gone up. I followed the instructions of the emergency people and had them take me two miles to hospital, a ride which cost five hundred dollars, which for some reason was not covered in my explanation of benefits, and will go into collection probably next week, so I have to talk to someone, probably.

“But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. (2 Peter 3:7)”
