Lunch encounters....

This is going to be rambly, so just bear with me.

Thoughtful Simon was concerned with the David Hasselhof fans, so I thought I'd oblige til I get another pic up. I mean, it's the next best thing to me, right? ;-)

Larry (see my links; I'm not bright enough to put a link in my posts yet) says:
Belief is said to be a simple matter of brain chemicals, but it's really the most powerful force we have for changing reality.
That is an awesome statement. I was talking with Patchouli the other day about health matters and we got on this discussion about the mind/body connection. I believe that Larry's statement goes to the very core of our reality. Our beliefs about ourselves, our state of mind can make or break us. How we think God sees us is so vital to our healthy spiritual walk in this realm.

Hebrews 11:1-3 is one of my favorite scriptures.
1Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 2For by it the people of old received their commendation. 3By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. (esv)
It touches on our responsibility for beliefs and also on quantum physics .....bringing them both together in a mind-boggling 3 sentences....or maybe it's just me. No one knows who wrote Hebrews. Many authors have been suggested; Priscilla is one that scholars have suggested as the author because of the shrouding of anonymity. It's a beautiful book.
Which now makes me think of this blogging thing. My mind wanders, ok? Here we develop a community of people who may never see each other face to face, people from all over the world. We bare our souls...sometimes with information that we might not share with the people in our "real" lives. If it wasn't for the internet, and its "unseen" forces, we most likely would never have "met." I think that's just really amazing. Out of something unseen, we have created relationships. How much more is out there is mind boggling as well.

It is strange to realise that we reveal ourselves so openly over the internet.

But I am blessed by the people I have let into my life through blogging. Maybe there is the developement of a seventh sense; a sort of "blogger's trust syndrome".

Myself & Kriss are planning an RV trip in the USA when we have retired; maybe in 3 years time. We fully intend to visit as many blog buddies as we can and we are planning on being over in the USA for 3 - 4 months.

You should be rambly more often. This blogging thing is amazing. And I've met some amazing people in the process. Have a great week.
