Disney Lesson 2

Here's your second dosage of Disney Lessons:

I think this lesson speaks for itself, to any religion and to any gender.
Jealousy is a sin that shows that you're being controlled by your own desires rather than you controlling your desires. The bible says Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy... 1Corinthians 13:4. 
The more we focus on ourselves and our own desires, the less we are able to focus on God or things that matter most. Being jealous indicates that we are not satisfied with what God has given us.  
You might not realize it but you, too, might be guilty of feeling jealous. You can be jealous of another's:

  • Authority, power, leadership
  • Abilities, talents, skills
  • Personality, social standing
  • Age, youth, maturity, experience
  • Opportunities and privileges.

Disney Lesson 1

Bet you didn't know that Disney was great at teaching lessons. Here's the first one:

Watch what you say, for the bible is very practical when it states:
But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man `unclean'. (Matthew 15:18)
You can be skilled with your tongue just as David was skilled against Goliath. You don't need to come up with witty or clever, just let the holy spirit use you in ways you can't even imagine.
I went to a youth conference 2 years back and the speaker there gave a very clever acronym. I go down that list and unless what I'm going to say passes the test, I try not to say it at all. Is what you're about to say:

Hinder or hurt?
Necessary?               (I struggle with this one often)

Jamie Grace- Hold Me Video

So today I went to the Gotee Records website to find out that Jamie Grace had made a music video for the song I loved and bought- Hold Me. I'm not a big fan of Gotee videos because they're always out of place and not fun to watch. But I'm a fan of Jamie Grace so here's the video. Ha! Tobymac is almost unrecognizable.

Pass The Video and tell me so that I can check it out.

#175 When your footsteps line up perfectly with the black and white floor tiles

Brain, you´re funny.
Who knows what caveman electronsare firing you up on a daily basis? Something must have been programmed in a while back to make it so enjoyable to pop bubble wrap, hear frozen puddles crack, or stab those little buttons on top of the soft drink cup lid. Click clack,neutrons snap, brain cells buzz and smiles attack whenever those feel-good jabs start feel-good jabbing.
When your footsteps line up perfectly with the black and white floor tiles it´s like the stars are aligning for a quick little minute of fun. Perfectly avoiding all sidewalk cracks, squeezing through a door as it´s shutting without touching it, and walking onto escalators without breaking your stride all come close, but not much feels as good as Checkerboard Stepping all the way through that snobby lobby.
Let the front desk staff all stare in awe, drop their jaws, and burst into applause.
You just nailed it, my friend.
Right when it counted most.

"Eenie Meenie" in Sign Language

I have mastered "Tonight" by Fm Static and "You Belong With Me" by Taylor Swift. I really wish I could master this song, but he goes waaaay too fast and that song is pretty hard. It is really fun to watch though.
