From the 1662 Book of Common Prayer

"We acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness, which we, from time to time, have committed by word, thought and deed, against thy Divine Majesty, provoking most justly thy wrath and indignation against us."

So what's that parable really mean?

[http://www.newreleasetuesday.com/images/navigation/bug_nrteam.gif] "Graduation Day" Lyrics [edit]
by Kenny Marks | from the album Another Friday Night


Share

Graduation day, there were tears in their eyes,
Photographs and promises; they threw their hats goodbye,
Graduation day, and the sun was shining bright,
A piece of paper and a heart full of dreams,
It was the best day of their life.

On their wedding day there were tears in their eyes,
Words of love and promises,
They threw the rice and waved goodbye,
It was the best day of their life.

Oh, we search for a moment to cling to, but there seems to be too few to find,
In the span of one life, in the dimness of night, we search for the meaning in life.

It was an ordinary day and there were tears in their eyes,
God's word of love and promises took them by surprise,
'Cause on that ordinary day there was an answer shining bright,
All those days of searching for truth had faded in the light,
It was the best day of their life.

Oh, we search for a moment to cling to, but there seems to be too few to find,
In the span of one life, in the dimness of night, we search for the meaning in life,
In the span of one life, in the dimness of night, we search for the meaning in life.

We search for the meaning in life.

I've got to clean...

This past weekend I was working on some de-duping of old backup files... because I can't throw anything away "just in case" I need it later or in case I want to explore and ponder some part of my history... So the next-best-thing is to reduce the clutter and make sure I'm hoarding just one copy of things.

(As an aside, that can really mess things up if the copy you delete is out of a folder that was a set... but that's the risk you run...)

Anyway, I was thinking that I also need to declutter my office spaces. I'm not an inherently organized "I-love-to-maintain-structure" person, but at some point that turns from a non-strength into a weakness (as Buckingham would put it via Now Discover Your Strengths).

Next steps: continue the scanning project to get the paper notes into convenient digital form, and work on better bookcases in the den.

To consider: better book organization with the help of LibraryThing -- maybe getting as fancy as LC categories or such.

Check back in a year or two to see how it went. :)
