>Random things I am thankful for this week:

1. Loads of sunblock for loads of sunshine

2. Fun in blogsville

3. Someone got interested in Cj’s good-as-brand-new crib. It didn’t have to end up in the junk after all

4. That yummy durian ice cream yesterday

5. My CV is finally sent to a prospective employer after I procrastinated a bit

6. Good health despite late nights

7. Dirty rugs are all washed up

8. No chaos in my apartment this week

9. The slack I got yesterday from Him 🙂

10.Tomorrow is Friday, hurray!

and one more thing: I played “It should have been me and you” on youtube a few days back. The video showed images of Jesus all bloodied up on the cross, so I was wincing and was about to click minimise and carry on just listening, when Cj on the bed behind me, jumped up and down, yelled and pointed at the video, “Mommy! Jesus?! Jesus?!”

To me that was a wonderful surprise. Two years of solid buddhism in the school he’s attending (and I haven’t taken him to church in awhile) and he hasn’t forgotten the REAL GUY.

    >Hello Hazel,I am visiting from the Thankful Thursday meme, which is a meme that is designed to blog about our blessings and thanksgiving to Jesus. I was suprised to read the following quote on your site when at the top of your blog:cholasticism with its subtle argumentation, Theology with its ambiguous phraseology, Astrology, so vast and so complex, are all children’s games when compared with alchemy. (Albert Poisson) alchemy, when I looked it up refers to black magic, blak arts, which from my studies indicates are practices that are forbidden in the Bible. I wonder if I might have misunderstood your participation in a Christian blog or did I not understand the quote?

    >I am using a Harry Potter – inspired template and that widget goes with the template. The fact that I am an innocuous HP fan does not mean I am into alchemy or any related practice forbidden in the Bible. But I get what you mean about my participation in a christian blog. If joining means I am asked to modify what shows in my template, I am very open to suggestions. I am a christian, albeit a backslider who is considering going back to church. No amount of Harry Potter or alchemy-displaying widgets can make me forget or change the fact that I am or once was. Maybe uptightness or unfriendliness will.
