Short and Sweet

I think my last 3 posts are longer than the previous 30, combined. Oh well, today’s will be short because I didn’t almost die OR make a game winning shot. It was, in a word, normal.

But Moon said something that stuck with me. We were walking outside and spotted some deer in our backyard. I was reminded of the photo I’d seen on Facebook of a tween with her first deer, a dead deer. I asked Moon if she’d ever be interested in hunting and she said, “I like to eat venison, but I don’t want to kill it.”

This is how I feel about pretty much everything. I want a nice house, but I don’t want to clean it. I want to be fit, but I don’t want to exercise. I want to go to WalMart, but I don’t want to shower.

Is this what, “The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak” means?

It sounds so simple when it’s put that way. I’d love to help, I’m just so tired. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak! Ha. Maybe next time.

I looked up the same verse in The Message.

There is a part of you that is eager, ready for anything in God. But there’s another part that’s as lazy as an old dog sleeping by the fire.

Ouch. Now I know why a lot of churches only use the King James Version!

  1. This blog is so true. This morning I would like to just sit by the fire all day but I would have to make Lucy and Lynus move over.
