Two Reasons to Buy a Mac or She’s a Maniac

Feb 15

Okay, here are my two reasons to buy a Mac.  
1.  Photo Booth
2. iMovie
(These are the applications that allowed me to create this Oscar Winning presentation.  These and my husband who is a graphic designer and figured out how to put it on the blog.  Gotta love him!)
Is there any end to my craziness?  Well, not really.  It’s just so fun!  But y’all – I’m crazy for Jesus! Did I hear somebody say AMEN?  Now that we’re real friendly and all, I’m going to tell you about a piece of dirt.   Yes, you heard me correctly.
Several of you asked me in the comments on my last post about the dirt poem.  Well, here is the story.  Back in high school, my english teacher was teaching a lesson on poetry.  She was elaborating on the best topics for poems.  She said you could write a poem about anything – well, almost anything.  
I’ve been known to be somewhat contrary from time to time.  So, I assured the teacher that you could, in fact, write a poem about anything.  (I’m sure she appreciated me enlightening her.)  I went on to tell her that if one wanted to write about something as trivial as a piece of dirt, one could.  So, she challenged one to do so.  
To make a long story short, I wrote a poem about a piece of dirt, and my teacher loved it.  She sent it to represent the school at a county-wide poetry competition, and it won!  
(Wait just one minute.  I’m going to take this crazy post you thought was going nowhere and turn it around for Jesus.  That’s just the kind of girl I am.) 
Winning the poetry contest with my poem entitled “A Piece of Dirt” was taking I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me to new levels.  Is there someone telling you today that you can’t do something?  Maybe it’s your own insecurities or maybe a family member or maybe it’s even mean ole’ Satan trying to keep you down.  Don’t give up.  You really can do anything through Christ.  Just remember the piece of dirt poem and believe it!
p.s. After all that, I do not have a copy of the dirt poem – even after Alan searched the Internet last night thinking that with its high literary value, it was surely out there somewhere.  Sorry!

    Thank you for sitting back down. I was a little afraid you were going to do the running in place portion of the dance. 😉

    Fun post!

    Love the video, but I find it hard to believe that your dirt poem is not somewhere on the internet or in a library somewhere – I am sure you will find it and have it published at some point -hahahaha

    Do you have any more current works of poetry? 🙂

    Have I told you yet today that I love you? You are so hilarious! And you use that gift to share Jesus!
    You are a superstar, you maniac! You maniac for Jesus! 🙂

    What no copy of the poem! I can’t believe you would set us up like that!
    Ok, just go write it again.

    I agree with Marylu… You need to rewrite the dirt poem and put it on your blog. Loved this. You are so crazy… but that’s why I love you. and by the way, just as quick as I can get back home from the mountains, I am getting a Mac. Do you want to go with me to pick it out?

    You are too crazy!!!! Ginny and I absolutely LOVED IT!!!!! She wanted to hear more about the maniac.

  • Marybeth Feb 16 at 2:06 pm

    Ok, I have nothing witty to say about the poem, but I will say that I love the song Maniac… it is my all-time favorite… I know, I know, that’s not very Christian of me… but it’s true!
