Random blog entry before bedtime...

So I really don't have much to say or anything intelligent to offer considering I am doing this just for pure randomness before my bedtime. Well, not really bedtime, but it is getting close. I actually don't have a bedtime! I am considered an adult, but that doesn't mean adults don't have bedtimes. Hmmm, I wonder what the definition of bedtime is: "the time at which a person usually goes to bed: It's past my bedtime?" (dictionary.com). Wow, I was right, because "a person" can mean an adult or child. No, I am not going to look up person in the dictionary.

This begs the question, not really, does everyone have a bedtime? Did I lie when I said, "I actually don't have a bedtime"? Not necessarily, if I went to bed at different times every night out of pure randomness, then I wouldn't really have a usual bedtime.

This begs another question, I bet I don't receive any money for this begging, should everyone have a bedtime? In a word, no. Why? Because of the word weird. Oh yes, I am tying this blog entry, whatever it is, back into the word weird. If I had a bedtime I normally went to bed, then that wouldn't be weird! And weird is always good, right (the answer to this question is another blog post)? Well, unfortunately, because of the normality of the world creeping in, I end up having normal bedtimes (sigh). I work at a specific time. My normal body needs a certain amount of sleep in order to function well at for work. Therefore, I need to go to bed before a certain time, otherwise, my work isn't work.

Does the answer to the second question answer my first? Kind of. Except for the occasionally weird person, most everyone ends up having a bedtime at a certain time because of the normality of the world, so in a sense, I did lie when I typed...well, you know what I typed..., but it wasn't lie because I was thinking in the sense of my other self that is disconnected from the normality of the world, but that self doesn't get to come out much (no, I am not crazy, I was typing figuratively).

Just think, I bet in Heaven, there are no bedtimes! Now that will be a good weird.

Relationship to God: Friend of God?

Our different relationships to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit



Relationship with God:

In regards to our relationship with God, You know that song I am a friend of God? Well, I would be a friend of God (strictly speaking) if I lived in the Old Testament time, but I am much more than that now—I am a son of God (obviously friends, but a deeper friendship than the Old Testament term, so it is best not used).

Relationship with Jesus:

Jesus is our friend—Our best friend in a sense considering he married the church (us), which makes him our best friend.

Relationship with Holy Spirit:

Holy Spirit: our mentor, teacher

Let me know what you think!

Please note: I just wanted clarify that I am thinking in terms of our different types of relationship to each Member of the Trinity; though, I am focusing more on our relationship with God.
