being a smart aleck

Funny thing, as I’m emailing at work, and under pressure, sometimes I feel the need to make a quick smart reply to an email I think is obvious or something to ensure that the person knows I didn’t do anything wrong, or whatever. Excuses, smart aleck replies, I’m bad at that. I’m always in a rush to keep the information flowing, to stay on top of things and to cover my butt.. you know how work can be 😛  Lately, I’ve been replying less, if it doesn’t require a reply, I just let it be. It causes less frustration, less traffic, and gives me a chance to think about a response before just blurting something into an email and out. The ‘christian’ attitude is to be patient, slow to anger, and slow to speak. See verse below, so thats really what I’m trying to do.  Often, you’ll indeed look more intelligent if you just don’t respond to emails which may be trying to egg you on, or rile you up – not that I get emails like that at work.. its just that its a faster paced environment.

James 1:19 – Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.

At work, I need to remember who my boss is and who my ultimate boss is and whether or not I appreciate every little thing that occurs, I need to honour my boss as much as I can and in so doing, I honour God.

Things my mom knows

Was thinking today about mom, and realizing, she knows all the answers now.

2Cr 5:8We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from thebody and to be present with the Lord.

Here are some things she NOW knows and its incredible to realize it:

  • She knows Adam and Eve now!
  • She knows how the whole creation thing actually worked – whos right and who is wrong on earth
  • She knows once and for all that there is an after life
  • She has now met Jesus and knows what it is to worship in His presence.
  • She knows if Noahs Ark is still around and where, ok, if not, she can Ask Noah which mountain they actualy landed on
  • She is likely able to see whats happening down here. I hope we can see down here anyways

There are so many things she knows 100% now, its not just a faith for her anymore, its real, its the truth, its reality tangibly to her. She can talk likely to any of the past saints, she has probably met up with her parents, she has had a conversation face to face with Jesus… WOW, just think of these things. Its amazing to think about what its like for her, who she has met, what its like in heaven etc.

Does she know i’m writting a blog about her right now? Can she see us? Can she see the angels and demons all around us and in the world? Is it just a big party up there right now? Can she fly? What goes on every day (whatever a day means in eternity 😛 )there?  Wow, amazing, incredible, inconceivable!
