another day, another great word

hello, all my special copemates... now what good is a word that means two opposite things? really that doesn’t make sense. 

it makes about as much sense as my life of contradictions... my Bible study this week was about taming the tongue. it was not convicting at all (that is a lie)... and i realized what a contranym i am sometimes... blessing God and cursing those He created in His image. can my mouth be a stream bringing forth clear pure water AND poison at the same time? nope, that can’t happen. we were not created to be contranyms... i yearn for consistency, for purity in the inner parts, for fresh water and fresh words flowing from a fresh heart. 

i just don’t understand the need for contranyms in our language. and even though there are words that are contranyms... i don’t want my life to be one.  i would like my life to be defined without opposite meanings. she loved God and she loved others. that’s it. no opposition. no contranyms

enough of the word contranym, my spell check doesn’t recognize it and that wigs me out. of course my spell check and i are always having heated debates about capital letters and such, so we are not the best of friends...

where i will be tomorrow afternoon... with 15 or so middle school girls... i was thinking of picking them up at school wearing a wildcats cheerleading uniform, but millie didn’t like that idea... she is so boring...

where i will be tomorrow afternoon...

with 15 or so middle school girls...

i was thinking of picking them up at school wearing a wildcats cheerleading uniform, but millie didn’t like that idea... she is so boring...

tomorrow i am taking my middle school girls Bible study to see HSM3. they don’t know we are going. i am just picking them up after school (with two other moms with big cars) and taking them to the movie. some of them may be a bit “beyond” HSM3 but i suspect deep down they really want to see it and this way they can blame it on me, their crazy Bible study leader. 

they can also blame all the loud singing in the theater on me...

hee hee hee, if you can’t embarrass your teenagers, what joy is there in life? that is all i have to look forward to everyday. don’t take away my only source of extreme enjoyment...

i think i will find a nice cheerleading pom pom in the wildcats colors to shake as i wait for them to come across the street to my car after school. that won’t be too bad, will it?

today, i am teaching macbeth to the drama class at millie’s middle school. i am having so much fun teaching that one class a week. they really seem to love it (or maybe they are just really good actors). they even applaud at the end of my lesson. do you think a) they enjoyed it, or b) they are they just glad it is over?

let’s go with answer “a”...

hope you all have a great thursday. 

i have to go and download the soundtrack to HSM3 so it can be blaring from the car’s speakers as we go to the movie. we are all in this together...
