Random Thoughts from the Crayola House

Bible Studies are a wonderful tool; understanding God’s Word as our daily bread and applying it to our lives helps us to better ourselves and allow us to walk in our gifts, on the path originally and perfectly chosen for us – using the Word and the Holy Spirit as our guides. It is the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God that gives us wisdom.

Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law. – Psalm 119:18

There are some who believe that too much wisdom is not good for us. Well, I don’t know nuttin’ about that.  But then again, I don’t know that I really ever thought of myself as wise. I can be a bit of a wise-guy at times, a self-proclaimed grammar policewoman (who is fully aware of the double-negative above), and I suppose one could say I am somewhat elder by now, but wise?  Or is wisdom just in the eye of the beholder?  Oops, wisdom thou shalt be put aside for the moment, as my cell alarm is screaming at me!

In the year 2010, Mexico celebrated the bicentennial celebration of the war of Independence, and the centennial celebration of the Revolutionary war. The festivities included special routes across the country, highlighting points of interest of the War of Independence and the Revolution – Rutas de la Independencia, and Rutas de la Revolucion, respectively. That year, Mom, my friend Esperanza and I and had ventured to the state of Guanajuato – following the ‘Ruta de la Independencia, where the Independence movement began.

Crowd Control? Clear the Mechanism!

04 March, 2010:  One thing very important I have learned is about crowd control, or lack thereof. Confused? If you are not accustomed to my style of writing/my wacky sense of humor, then please let me explain. I often joke that I hear voices in my head, and sometimes we have silly conversations. That works well when I am writing travel stories, but what is the point in this blog???? The point is the crowd in my head, or more accurately- the noise. Continue reading
