Things You Should Remember to do Every Week

My media roundup this week reminded me of somethings we should try to work into our lives on a regular basis.

1. Remember to be inspired.

I pulled this gif from Hank Green's tumblr. (See the post here.) I love the awesomeness of this. Everyone is stunned that he makes this catch.

Aside from it being cool, it's a message for how important it is to practice and drill so that your reflexive reactions are right. The pitcher didn't have time to think about that catch. It was a reflex.

 

Who doesn't love a good underdog story? Go over to John Green's tumblr to see more about the story of a football (soccer) team in England that worked their way up to the professional league. Watch the video. Seriously. I think the announcers start crying. Besides, where else can you here an announcer claim to have soiled himself while narrating a game?

2. Remember Who You Are


Louis Giglio - You may be a lot of things to lots of people today, but before you're anything else you're a loved child of a perfect Father. Phil Cooke - Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself." - William Faulkner Matt Papa - no sermon, no song, or piece of artwork will ever fully display God's worth. It's all refrigerator art. but our Daddy loves it.



3. Remember to Giggle


Brett McIntosh: Certainly not the first to post, but this is wonderful. (Picture of Martin Luther and caption: I got 95 problems and the church is one of them")


Happy Reformation Day!


Jon Acuff: God took his hair on home to glory." How i just heard a wife describe her bald husband.


adam Stadtmiller: Google "Dogs Diving underwater" and click images. You will be happy you did.


I did this. I might have nightmares now.



4. Remember to keep perspective.


 

 

 

 

 

 

Jeremy Cowart: No problem on that $5 coffee that will last 10 minutes. But $1 for an app that I'll use for a year? I don't know. #MericasMentality


C. S. Lewis Daily Quotes: The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour. Sally Killpatrick: "WolfeSelma: Nanowrimo: The most inconveniently timed support group in the world." Word


Seriously. Who picked November for this crazy endeavor?!? Why not January or March? At least a month with 31 days.

5. Remember to get excited and have fun.
