NIPTO, Day 280

Today was good.
Got up. Did music at church. Drove to Kent. Came home. Ate lunch. Facebooked/watched football. Drove to Chapel Hill. Pretended to be my sister. (It was nothing serious. Don't worry about it. It's cool hahaha That was for Hannah.)
I just kinda... was on facebook a whole lot and ate some food. Then I went to youth group. It was good. BK did a great job, even with the 50 million distractions. It was good. 
I talked to Kayt a little bit. And I'll be thinking a lot now. Gee, thanks, Kayt. I'll have to call her or something haha.

Now I'm home. Just watched Undercover Boss. It was a good one :)
And now I shall blog and then type up my questions for class tomorrow and then go to bed. 
Sound good? 'Kay!

Ecclesiastes 10:12-20

12 Words from the mouth of the wise are gracious,
   but fools are consumed by their own lips.
13 At the beginning their words are folly;
   at the end they are wicked madness—
 14 and fools multiply words.
   No one knows what is coming—
   who can tell someone else what will happen after them?

Ahhhhhh words. So powerful. So... seemingly insignificant. 
The wise have gracious words. Words for others. Fools have words only for themselves. They're consumed by their own words. When they begin to speak their words are foolish and full of folly. In the end, their words are wicked madness. Their words multiply. Like mice. haha. But sometimes in multiplied words things get distorted. Although things are probably distorted to start with if they're coming from the mouth of fools...
And then the ever-recurring "no one knows what's coming so who can tell someone what's going to happen after them?" question. 

 15 The toil of fools wearies them;
   they do not know the way to town.

Fools work so hard at nothing that they get tired. The don't know where they're going.

 16 Woe to the land whose king was a servant
   and whose princes feast in the morning.
17 Blessed is the land whose king is of noble birth
   and whose princes eat at a proper time—
   for strength and not for drunkenness.

Woe... woe. Woe to the land who has a king that was a servant and who has a prince who feasts (gets drunk) in the morning. 
But blessed is the land who has a king of noble birth and who eats at the right times. He eats for strength, not to get drunk. Yaaaaaay for not getting drunk early in the morning?

 18 Through laziness, the rafters sag;
   because of idle hands, the house leaks.

If you're lazy, things will start to fall apart. This talks about a house, but I think it's really talking about our hearts. Our lives. If we're lazy with our relationship with God, things will start to fall apart. That is not good.

 19 A feast is made for laughter,
   wine makes life merry,
   and money is the answer for everything.

This verse taken out of context (and even in context) could an would be taken very wrongly. HEY! Food makes laughter, wine makes life happy, and money is the answer for everything! Sweet! I'll go eat and drink and be merry! (for tomorrow we die. LOVELY!)

 20 Do not revile the king even in your thoughts,
   or curse the rich in your bedroom,
because a bird in the sky may carry your words,
   and a bird on the wing may report what you say.

Oooooo. Be kind to people in power. Don't think badly about them even in your thoughts. A little birdie will tell them what you say. And that gets ugly really fast.

That's it for me tonight. I'm going to go to bed now. Because sleep is good. And tomorrow is a school day. EWWWWW. I haven't thought about school... at all? this weekend. Weird. Nice, but weird.

G'night all!
