Ok, I’m trying to get more hits by putting a good title on the post…..
(neither of these is me- my beauty is too staggering to appear on this blog, plus I don’t like suits- see no. 10)
…..but there is going to be free stuff in this posting. I’m off today……Penrith…Edinburgh…. and back on Saturday night.
So no more posts for a while. If you will miss that I can provide you, for free, a genuine ‘diggingalot TM‘ experience:-
1:Over use (a lot) of parentheses (haven’t a clue what they are) in your postings.
2:Don’t finish sentences with a full stop………
3:Have a lots; of bad grammar in your: postings.
4:Be too introspective for your own good.
5:Be too self-deprecating for your own good (hoping that people will like you. A lot.).
6:Occasionally lose people with your attempts at humour.
7:Have a kind of love-hate-love-hate-love-hate (and back again) relationship with the Church.
8:Really love doing what you have been called to do, but go through periods of wondering ‘why?’.
9:Have a profound suspicion of ‘shiny happy people’.
10:I still find cool John Lennon’s line from ‘Crippled Inside’- ‘You can go to church and wear a suit; one thing you can’t hide is if you are crippled inside.’ I don’t like wearing suits, can’t understand why they exist and have to work hard to overcome a suspicion of people wearing them.
11:Like mainstream music that has a touch of ‘leftfieldness’ about it. Get a quiet pleasure when you can riff on bands that no-one has heard of.
12:Maintain a touching, yet incomprehensible devotion to U2, cricket, steam railways etc.
13:Watch your blog count like the anal retentive that you are.
14:Have a belief that one day you will play guitar in public (hey- at the moment I can play ‘The Lion sleeps tonight’ complete with reggae strum pattern. Nice.).
15:The longer you are a Christian, realise more that you are less like Jesus. You want to be more like Jesus; he both comforts and scares you. You fear the cost….yet he still really intrigues you.
16:Like meaningless lists. It makes a random world more bearable.
Alternatively…. there is a better solution- just be yourself!
That’s enough for now- miss me a lot!
Grace and peace
