What is my life message on planet earth?

Self preservation and the preservation of those who mean the most to me. What is driving me is I want to get as far down the road in life as I can in the best shape I can be in. Don't want to go out at 30, don't want to go out at 40, 50 or 60 but want to get to 90 in good shape. Want to go as far down stream as I can in as calm water as I can with as little pain and suffering as I can get; I want this for those who I love the most. That is most people's main mission in life.

But what about when suffering comes? Circumstances over which we have no control; that life message crumbles.

Driscoll for The Men

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Di9imh10Fc8

The following is extracted from the above clip:

Real men are creators and cultivators, not childish consumers, cowards, or complainers.

Mark Driscoll makes the point that in 30AD there were 5 stages between boyhood and manhood which happened, sometimes simultaneously and often suddenly; didn’t have the gap we call adolescence or teen years.

 "da Lord, he is da boss"

What a beautfiul way of describing the sovereignty God!

Variation on "bad hair day" yesterday. I had a "bad watch" day. Or should I say a "no watch" day. Minutes before leaving the house could I find it? Pockets, surfaces, everywhere I could think of. So took my alarm clock to work with me. That redeemed the situation somewhat. And this morning I looked laterally at a "surface" I had missed the morning before and there it was. And it's back where it belongs helping me to know how much time I have left to get so much done!
I have discovered that some people are actually reading my blog. When I have a peep from time to time I find that the "ratings" counter has changed and it's not just recording all the times I've logged on! I have had the odd positive  unsolicited (mostly!) comment here and there. So thank you if you are reading it; hope there are things of use, amusement and general well being contained within.
