A. Stupid drivers: NEED I SAY MORE?
B. Many Starbucks attendants: Do they teach their workers to be that fake? Sometimes they seem like they're going to jump RIGHT in the car with us. Sheesh... irritating!! Especially for someone who is NOT a morning person. ;)
C. AI: Any show with "Idol" in it... ...deserves to die! lol. I guess I never really thought of that before. But I SO HATE American Idol these days!! And know what? I don't even watch the show anymore. It used to (maybe?) be about the music. But now it's about how slutty and sexual they can make the show. Ugh... HATE IT! And like I said, all of this "insight" is only from ads and commercials I've seen -- I don't even watch it now.
D. How immoral TV (actually, our whole society) has become: To be honest, I might be over the top when it comes to modesty. (As a Christian, can you be, tho???) Anyway, I don't even like walking through malls anymore. I cannot believe that there are stores that have HUGE (bigger than life-size) photos of women in barely-there underwear. Seriously? Is that not pornography?
Why... YES! Yes, it is! See?
(World English Dictionary
1. writings, pictures, films, etc, designed to stimulate sexual excitement
2. the production of such material
So, when we happen to be sitting in our OWN HOME and a commercial comes on and shows these things I get SO ANGRY!!!! It's just wrong. Absolutely wrong. HUGE PET PEEVE.
E. Rude service people: I know... I just can't be pleased. lol The workers at Starbucks are too friendly but I wouldn't like it if they were rude either! lol. Yes, I admit it. I'm difficult to please. Please send the sympathy cards to my husband. ;)
F. 5:30 am Monday morning wake-ups: 'nuff said...
But then, I step back. And I endeavor to realize the things in my life that are irritations to my Lord. No, I don't believe He gets irritated. But there are definitely many things in my life that do sadden my Lord. And one of those, I'm sure, is the attitude I have at times. I do hate the perverse and evil things of this world. And some things that happen in the day-to-day certainly cramp my style or cause frustration within me. But in all things I truly desire to please God. So... I struggle constantly, and continue to pick myself back up after falling and failing miserably and strive to have an attitude that would please God.
Philippians 2:13-15 (King James Version)
13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
