When I go to the movies I always stay through all the credits. I'm not sure why, I just do.
On 9/11/11 we had the TV on all day. We were heartbroken all over again, and I listened to the reading of all the names. Watching George, Laura, Barrack, and Michelle console family members, moved me to tears.
I've come to the conclusion some of us spend so much of our time despising those created in the image of God.
Later on in the day, as some of the footage started to repeat, I googled the fall TV schedule. Fox has a show premiering called "I Hate My Teen-age Daughter." No kidding. It's premise is; two best friends who were outcasts in HS, trying to raise teen-age daughters which they've parented straight down the path to the mean girls who tormented them in high school. Seriously?
I've come to the conclusion that, this then, is the reason why radicals fly planes into our buildings.
And yet I found myself sitting before Survivor premier Wednesday night. What will I watch, when will I watch, with whom will I watch? No worries, this is not one of those "I never watch TV posts."

I've come to the conclusion when someone claims, "I don't smoke and I don't chew and I don't go with girls that do," they probably read too many blogs, shop too much, eat too much, exercise too much, stay at the office too long, and care waaaay too much about a host of other things.
I've come to the conclusion that how we spend our time is how we spend our lives.
But I am seriously going to curtail/schedule my watching. Along with Survivor will come Parenthood, The Amazing Race, and any Redwings games I can find. And I already jumped on the Tiger bandwagon, so ya got your play-offs and such.
I've come to the conclusion I need to turn down the volume on scads of things in my life and tune into the music of my life station. It's commercial free.
It's not that I can't hear when someone is trying to talk above the noise... there's just so much confusion and I didn't buy a ticket to the cacophony. So I'll DVR a few things and tune in towards the end of the games, but I'm desperate for Him and the Symphony plays every evening in my living room with a view to the sunset ... I just need to be in my seat.
Yesterday 9.15.11 turned up cold and rainy. I found Sara from "Choose Joy" and I've practically read her entire blog and you should too.
I've come to the conclusion that His Grace is greater than our sins.
