Odds and Ends

What - two posts in one week?! Crazy!

There were a couple of things I wanted to blog about so thought I'd do it know and continue to avoid doing my economics homework (smile).

Please head over to my dear Molly Malone's blog - she has addressed a religious question I posed to her, after getting into a bit of a, "discussion" with a Pentacostal chaplain for the US military. Putting into words, what I was feeling, she has eloquently elaborated my spiritual philosphy, despite the fact that this philsophy goes against most major religion's bottom line. Guess I'm more of a rebel than I thought, but again, I reaffirm that the God I worship to is a forgiving, loving God - not a mean, vengeful one. I like the quote Molly placed regarding us humans - from Thomas Merton to God, "I trust my desire to please You, pleases You." In the end, who really knows, no?

I saw John Edwards on Jay Leno the other day - he admited that voting for the Iraq war was wrong. I'm so glad he has finally seen reason - three years too late, but better late than never.

Rumor has it that Prince William is planning on getting married - great just as I lose my flight benefits, sheesh! He needs to give me at least four months notice, so I can buy my air ticket. It has been my life-long vow, that I'm going to be there in London, camping out, for his wedding - just as people did for his parent's nuptials. I wonder if Wills could just wait a year, till I have a job and money for said travel....? Somebody get on that!

If you are thinking of going to the movie's this weekend, I HIGHLY recommend, the Painted Veil. Words can't describe what a lovely, beautiful piece of film-making this movie represents. If the shots of China don't take your breath away, the tragically wondeful story, by Somerset Maugham will have the desired effect.

Right, enough dilly-dallying - must crack that economics book. Joy.

At your suggestion, I checked in first at Molly's blog for a summary, and left a comment there. But I would also say here, what a backward idea that you must be poor in faith if you don't believe in a dsicriminatory God. I would always vote for love. (And I'm with you, too - wish more politicians could have seen the wrongness of going to war with Iraq BEFORE we went.)
