This 'n' That

We all sing or maybe even dance when we think nobody is watching. Come on, admit it. At some point in your life, you've sung in the shower, or while driving, or even busted a move in what you thought was an empty grocery aisle (listen, in my defense, I was only 9 years old!). Hey, this lady felt free to dance while waiting at the bus stop!

Those of us who are hopelessly tone deaf have to be even more careful about when and where we decide to exercise our vocal cords. But then, there are always those who just don't care. They're so confident (or conceited) that they relish the idea that others around them are gaping in awe at their most likely lack of singing ability. These people are the type who FaceTime their like-minded friends while sitting at a stoplight and, together, sing songs like Abba's Super Trouper at the top of their lungs.

Yep, I witnessed it. I only wish I could have recorded it to share, but trying to record and pay attention to the road don't mix. Unless, of course, you are this young lady. Apparently she was able to deftly utilize her driving, singing, and recording skills simultaneously. Yes, friends, these are the people with whom we are sharing the road. Drive carefully. Sing softly. And please, if you're going to sing out loud, select a better song!

Great, now that song is stuck in my head. Oh well, better than one of those frustratingly awful 7-11 "praise and worship" songs, I guess. While I go try to knock it out of my brain, why don't you relax and enjoy your week in review (kind of):
  • Sadly, it seems that we need to be reminded of this basic fact.
  • Conrad Mbewe always says things well.
  • If you need a list of "Christian" musical groups/artists to avoid, here you go. If they have Christine Caine's endorsement, it's safe to say they aren't safe.
  • This is sad on so many levels.
  • Speaking of our Creator, I thought this was fascinating.
  • Here's your weekly dose of adorable.
  • Barbara Bush passed away this week. I found this archived article from 1964 interesting.
  • Does Elyse Fitzpatrick want us to date and marry Jesus? This is nonsensical. Stay away!
  • Michelle Lesley shows us how Jesus handled hurt.
  • I enjoyed this sermon from Pastor Jerry Wragg on the comfort of the doctrine of the rapture.
To say that God dwells in heaven is not to say that He is contained there. But it is uniquely His home, His center of operations, His command post. It is the place where His throne resides. And it is where the most perfect worship of Him occurs. It is in that sense that we say heaven is His dwelling place. —John MacArthur
