people are stupid. downright insane idiots. psychotic morons. and on top of that, they drink alcoholic beverages. now, i am not saying that all those who enjoy alcohol are idiots. just the vast majority. while i was at a 4th of july celebration, i observed a couple and the amounts of wine they both drank. an entire bottle each. these were large bottles, too. mind you, they had 2 little girls that they had to drive home that night. one about 2-3, and one about 4-5 months. the mother was nursing while drinking. i noticed that she couldn't even get herself another galss without spilling it all over herself. wow.

normally, i would laugh at them and say something along the lines of "what morons". but i found myself getting mad at them. the two people were obviously intoxicated (totally sloshed). and they had kids that they had totake home. not to mention the fact that the mother was nursing and drinking at the same time. i wanted to go chew her out. what and idoit! it made me really mad. i don't care if people drink. its not really my business. but these people had kids, and were basicly giving it to the baby that was being nursed, and endangering numerous peoples lives with there drunkenness. why can't people think through what there actions bring about? i wish that both of them had gotten arrested and thrown in the klink for what they did.

to eveybody out there, listen carefully - when you drink, you are affected. the alcohol will do something to you. don't be a stupid idiot and think that it won't. don't drink and take the responsiblity of another persons life by driving a vehicle. think things through. and don't plead insanity in court when you are being tried for manslaughter because you got in an accident because you were drunk. my gosh. sometimes i hate this world and the people in it.

the war inside me

As i stare into the night
i can tell there's gonna be a fight
between myself and who i am
Christ in me and my soul that was damned
i look away and try to push aside
the doubting thoughts that swell inside
but all along i somehow know
ignoring these thoughts just makes them grow
so i turn back and start to speak
but i fall down; i am so weak
i feel Christ's hands lift me to my feet
and He says "Follow me: we will defeat!"
so as we go i yeild my soul
though its not my own, i now feel whole
i have to face this spiritual test:
will i trust God's way as best?
or will i turn and try to fly
with my sin like anchors chained to my side
He says "Have no fear. You will overcome.
With Me by your side, all things can be done."
so he shed my shame and my shackles fall down
i watch them sink into his blood on the ground
and i realize that the death He died
makes me able to fight at my Risen King's side
these doubts i must face and fight till they're dead
like Christ faced the serpent and crushed his head
though its not easy and sometimes brings pain
i choose to focus on the ultimate gain
one day in Heaven i will sit at His feet
with joy He'll look down and He'll smile at me.
