God bless the screenshot

I live by bookmarks and screenshots. If I want to remember something, that's how I do it. I still use Pinterest too. IS there another way to keep track of things online? Screenshots are the way. 

Here's what I've been saving this week...

Okay, someone posted this and I'm confused: I have no idea how they got this translation of Luke 14. If you even look at the NLT (generally the most "user-friendly"), it says "For those who exalt themselves will be humbled and those who humble themselves will be exalted". And it's the story about Jesus telling people not to take the head seat when invited to a wedding feast; humble yourself and don't assume you're going to be the most important guest. It'll be embarrassing if you're asked to move. But if you take the lowest seat, the host may ask you to move to the head seat.
What am I missing here? 

I am getting ads for this bag. What do you think?

And, oh my gosh, if you do this, I am humiliated FOR you. Stop it. The first time I saw a moderate influencer I follow post a try-on picture with a fanny pack around her chest I thought it was a joke. 

Left, right, and center: we can all find common ground on the topic of sanity. 

I don't know why I find this so amusing: 

I've had to commit to stopping with the constantly dwelling on politics and how we ended up where we are right now. It's not productive. But burying your head in the sand isn't productive either, so middle ground is hard. This guy is one of my favorite follows. Everything he posts is just blatant common sense and I'm genuinely concerned that we aren't willing to just follow facts at this point:

(though, I admit, Columbus Day off of work would've made the week better...since the military had a 4-day weekend, a lot of kids didn't come to school anyway)


  1. What is that fanny pack across the chest? That is ridiculous.
    & that interpretation of the scripture is exactly what is wrong with the world today.

  2. I believe that’s from the Pop Psychology translation. But seriously, you’re missing nothing. Stuff like that lights a fire under me.

    I used to be politics obsessed, then I took a long break of ignoring it for my sanity, and now I’m getting reeled back in. But how can you NOT!? The stakes are so high right now.

  3. It is almost impossible not to dwell on the crap that is going on in the world right now. I would love to see all those complaining about Columbus Day to give up their land. They think their policies are brilliant until they have to live with the consequences. Meanwhile, I wish I had nothing better to do with my time than to complain about the reason some have a day off work. I didn't even know it was a holiday until I signed into social media and saw people complaining.


Comments make my day!
