This is the next installment in the Elder Scrolls series and I’m a huge fan. I played a little Morrowind and I’ve replayed Oblivion about 5 times over. So you can only imagine how super excited I am for this to be released!
The geek in me is quivering with ridiculous excitement. I am completely nerding out here!
(I posted this to my blog because it wouldn’t load on YouTube. #JustSaying)
I just did a post on my other blog about people who say that they hate children. It blows my mind to think that anyone could hate an innocent child. You can read everything I had to say when you click the link below…
The whole topic just had me thinking about what Jesus said about little children.
In Mark 10 it says:
“And they were bringing children to Him so that He might bless them; but the disciples rebuked them.
But when Jesus saw this, He was indignant and said to them, “Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.”
And He took them in His arms and began blessing them, laying His hands on them.”
It makes me so aware of the words we use. If God deems us to be as little children but we easily sprout words like ‘hate’ and ‘brats’ when referring to them, it surely can’t be okay?
Either way, take a look a the little children around you. Yes, they’ll tantrum and scream (just like adults do mind you) but wait for when they see a worm for the first time or when they watch the clouds with awe and wonder. That’s where we can learn from the little ones.
Any normal human being feels the need to help out. Whether it be in the form of cash, spending time with those in need or dropping off a bag of food – people want to help.
On a regular basis Parent24 gets emails about charities or organisations that need a helping hand. Sometimes it’s food or money. Other times it’s volunteers or the oppurtunity to do something fun, like a big walk, that will benefit those in need.
Parent24 has decided to start a blog called Parent24 has a heart which will focus on these needs and give people the opportunity to get involved.
Thing is, I don’t only work for Parent24, I love what I do. And I love this blog. I think it’s a great way to give back, share some love and help those who are less fortunate.
So come on guys, spread the word and help if you can.
I’ll also be posting the blog posts on Parent24’s Twitter and Facebook, so follow and Like those if you’re keen! That’s not all though – if you follow and Like, you’ll get a virtual cookie from me!
To all the Americans out there who happen to read this… Happy Thanksgiving!
If I had to choose one thing to be thankful for it would be that I live in ‘country of peace’. No, I don’t mean that we live in a country that has no crime, rape or murder.
I mean that I’m grateful that we don’t live in a country of war.
No matter how bad things may seem in your life or in those around you, I can’t imagine anything worse than having your home, the country you love, riddled with war.
The thought of (barely) sleeping at night listening to bullets, bombs and screams, wondering if you’ll wake up in this world must be the worst thing. I can’t imagine the constant fear, worry and stress that must cause.
I thank God that I live in a country that is either too scared, stupid or hopefully wise enough to stay out of any wars.
