Unremarkable Days

You know those days when you’re like, “This is the best day ever”? How about those days that are just so good you feel so powerful you have no issue whatever comes your way? Still we have days that make you feel like you can just embrace everyone and feel like you are Mother Theresa or Princess Diana. You ever have one of those days, or is it just me? 

Come on. Alright, let me try again. How about those days when you just know you can kill a person with just your fart? No? Nothing like That? How about those days when you hate everything that’s happening to you, you could almost swear you can fart in space and just have the whole world expunged? 

You might be wondering what’s with the word “fart” that I keep using it. I like that word. It’s kind of nasty and incredibly funny at the same time. I mean, it’s hard to find a word that can give that kind of effect these days.

So anyway, we have those happy days, we have those sad days and we have other days in between. And we have to admit, some days just seem so unremarkable, noh? But what I love about living this life for Jesus is that, those days that seem so insignificant, those are the days when God is actually working hard for us. Have you ever read those words before? It always feels so weird hearing those words – God working hard – but even weirder to actually write them.

For Someone who only said the words and then the world, universe and everything else came into being, it didn’t seem He’s the kind of guy who works hard. But the Bible did say, He rested on the seventh day. So maybe He really got tired after saying all those words. 

I wonder sometimes if He feels what we feel – you know, when days aren’t just as special, or as happy as we want them to be? Of course when you think about that, one can’t help but think about how Jesus went with His days before He started preaching, calling out disciples, showing miracles. All of a sudden, “unremarkable days” didn’t seem that bad at all. 

I mean, if the King of kings had “unremarkable days” in this world, why should it bother us if we do? If the King of kings diligently handled “unremarkable days” on this planet, why couldn’t we follow His example? If the King of kings and the Lord of lords, didn’t make a big deal of those seemingly “unremarkable days” walking the earth, why should we?

Maybe unremarkable days are meant for us to treasure some days and have fun, sweat and tears with all the other days in between. 

Letter To My Children

First of all, I want you to know life is beautiful.

Second, but there are a lot of stupid jerks and really, really bad people scattered everywhere. Some of them are in sheep’s clothing. I need you to be careful and be quick to tell the difference.

Third, trust nobody & everybody. Trust nobody of all your feelings, money and dignity. Trust everybody of your feelings, money and dignity. In other words, be wise. Expect bad things and expect good things. The world is full of them both.

Fourth, whatever happens in the past, stays in the past.  If someone broke your heart there, let the experience stay there. Don’t carry it on in the present. Otherwise, it will affect your future.

Fifth, be kind but learn how to kick somebody’s ass. Otherwise, they will kick yours.

Sixth, pay attention. Life teaches a lot of things. Everything you need to learn is in it. You don’t need to experience all things to learn from them. You don’t need to try all things to understand them.

Seventh, know that this life is not yours. It is God’s gift. So make yourself worthy of it. Do everything for His pleasure, not yours.
