Packing



I will be spending the week packing, and I still have to work during the day. I have to teach several classes this week. I did some packing this weekend, but I didn’t get as far as I’d hoped. I hate packing. I don’t know of anyone who actually does like packing. I will get it done. I have to. The movers will be here next Monday. I can’t wait to get moved. I’m so looking forward to my new apartment. However, there is still so much to do. It’s a bit overwhelming.

Endurance Is



For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. (KJV) ( Hebrews 10:36 ) 

How do you handle unsolicited criticism? Does your pride get hurt after you've done your best and still are scoffed at? How do you handle criticism from other Christians for doing the will of God? Yes, it's difficult. But you need to carry on with a patient endurance. This endurance you can surely draw from your faith to overcome any criticism.

Captain Kirk



Last night I went to a screening of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn followed by a discussion with none other than Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner. For an 88 year old man, he was both energetic and very funny. He told some great stories. He would often start out telling one story and then tell two or three other stories before coming back and finishing the original story. It was a great night with lots of fun.

The Eyes Have It



Yesterday, I saw my new eye doctor. She said my eyes look great. There are no problems except that I needed a new brand of contacts that would allow my eyes to breath better and get more oxygen. I have been wearing Acuvue 2 disposable contacts, and she gave me a pair of Acuvue Oasys to try out. I’ll let them know in a few days how I like the new contacts. The good thing is my prescription did not change for my contacts, and the change in the prescription for my glasses is so slight that I don’t need a new pair, especially since I rarely wear them. So all checked out great.

By the way, the man in the picture above and below is Dr. Andrew Neighbors, who was born in Arkansas and is an Optometrist. After growing up in Arkansas, he later moved to Colorado and then to Los Angeles. He is also known as Andrew Goes Places. He began his YouTube channel on August 9, 2015, and has gained popularity there for his gay lifestyle vlog entries, including dating stories, personal updates, as well as challenge completions.

Sleeping In



I get to sleep in a bit today. I have a eye doctor’s appointment this morning. I may end up taking the whole day off. As a general rule, they dilate my eyes, which more often than not give me a bad headache. It also sometimes take a while for the dilation to wear off. I am not going to go to work if my eyes are dilated or if I have a headache. I’ve actually put off an eye exam for longer than I should have, so it’s definitely needed. We’ll see if my eyes have gotten worse; I’ve never been to an eye doctor and my prescription hasn’t changed. We’ll see.

A Winter Night



A Winter Night
Sara Teasdale

My window-pane is starred with frost,
The world is bitter cold to-night,
The moon is cruel, and the wind
Is like a two-edged sword to smite.

God pity all the homeless ones,
The beggars pacing to and fro.
God pity all the poor to-night
Who walk the lamp-lit streets of snow.

My room is like a bit of June,
Warm and close-curtained fold on fold,
But somewhere, like a homeless child,
My heart is crying in the cold.
