My goal today was to make it to lunch with no complaints.  Didn’t even make it past breakfast, or brunch, or church.  I have hope for the afternoon though–not many people around.  πŸ™‚

I’m wondering if it would be interesting to log the subjects of my complaining and see if there are pocket areas of discontent.  Perhaps that’s an idea.

On a totally different note, I made the jump and got an iphone 5.  This from someone who was using a flip phone of years ago.  I’m a bit hesitant though.  I don’t want to be one of those people who has it in their face constantly.  Nor do I want to let it distract my spirit from the things of God.  Facebook proves that we do indeed have ample amount of time for prayer, we just use our time for tech toys.  I don’t want to do that with this phone.

So I accidentally did something and all my contacts disappears.  Yes, all of them.  So this morning when I usually do prayer time, I spent time working on adding them in.  I was feeling kind of guilty about not going to the Word and prayer first which is my usual goal.  But then I had the idea of praying for the people whose names I was adding into my phone contact list.  It became such a special time of prayer.  Some names I could barely remember who they were, other names were those of ones struggling, others doing well.  What a way to end up worship!  May this phone always lead to greater intimacy with Jesus first, foremost and evermost, not just a tech gadget that I justify that does so.

And yes, I took a hard copy of the Bible to church today.  To hear, “Everyone, please turn on your Bibles” is more than I can bear.  πŸ™‚
