I actually have a lot on my mind, trying to decide which one to talk about now and which one to leave for later. I have not-yet-finished posts; I just have not been able to brush them up for post.

I’m just wondering, I have so much to do……and my mood for some days has been I just DON’T do!
I remember like Paul ………..the good I intend to do…….I don’t do it, even though mine is not

I have some things on my table that I know I should clear, I’ve been looking at them for God knows how long, but I just would not do it

I need some information I would be asked for next week…….I just wont go and look for it

Someone (who has been taking advantage of me, thinking I’m stupid) just left my seat now…I feel like screaming his head off, ‘giving him a piece of my mind’ but ……………..I just wont do it.
I should really read, edit and polish this before posting…..I don’t feel like doing that

I’m sure it doesn’t happen to just me (then I need help!)

Meanwhile beautiful weekend
Advice anyone?

Credit Crunch 1

I've been wondering about the new 'slang' all over the world, credit crunch (sounds like some nice biscuit to me :-)crunchie crunchie crunchie)
I find the whole thing unexplainable and very intruiging and I want to express 'my own opinion' (even though I dont know so much about economics, emerging market, financial graphs and all those things the guys in designers suits say and do on wall street, and please dont quote me like McCain o)

but then I came across this story( I enjoy stories sometimes) I found it interesting and somehow related;

The Stock Exchange Market; Monkey Business!!!
Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each.

The villagers seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest, and started catching them. The man bought thousands at $10 and as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort.

He further announced that he would now buy at $20. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again.

Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer increased to $25 each and the supply of monkeys became so little that it was an effort to even see a monkey, let alone catch it!

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50.
However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on behalf of him.

In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers. "Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at $35 and when the man returns from the city, you can sell them to him for $50 each."

The villagers rounded up all their savings and bought all the monkeys.

Then they never saw the man nor his assistant again, only monkeys everywhere!

Now you have a better understanding of how the stock market works!

Let's all pray for the return of the man and his assistant soonest, otherwise................................!.

I will be back with credit crunch part 2....hopefully that would be soon

Very funny ( Is it a good example of look before you leap)

A priest was being honoured at his retirement dinner after 25 years in the Parish.
A leading local politician and member of the congregation was chosen to make the presentation and give a little speech at the dinner.He was delayed, so the priest decided to say his own few words while they waited. "I got my first impression of the parish from the first confession I heard here. I thought I had been assigned to a terrible place. The very first person to enter my confessional told me he had stolen a television set and when questioned by the police, was able to lie his way out of it. He had stolen money from his parents, embezzled from his employer, had an affair with his boss' wife, taken illegal drugs and he had given VD to his sister. I was appalled. But as the days went on I knew that my people were not all like that and I had, indeed, come to a fine parish full of good and loving people."Just as the priest finished his talk, the politician arrived full of apologies at being late. He immediately began to make the presentation and gave his talk. "I'll never forget the first day our parish priest arrived," said the politician. "In fact, I had the honour of being the first one to go to him in confession....."Everybody burst into laughter…………………………………………………………….

Moral of the story: DON'T BE LATE for meetings.

Faith --- what is it really?

Its been some days since I posted something here, well.....I can say work pressure, but truth is that, it takes me some time to put my thoughts together in writing.

Recently, I've been having some real soul-searching, heart-checking, mind-boggling discussions with my friend at work on what it really is to have faith in God.
We have worked throuhg situations in life, when we have believed GOd for things, really 'faithed' 'fasted' it as we've been taught and the situations still do not turn out as we prayed for( on some occasions, its even tragedies that breaks our hearts). One starts to wonder , are things still left to chance for the christain?, does God just want us to have faith for 'going to heaven '? or is it that we didnt do as much as we ought to have done? or we didnt 'faith' it enough?
What guarantees do you have in life as a christain?

I have my own thoughts on this, ( I still have lots of questions though) I hope to post them soon.
