    Define the word “certain”. I have a feeling it’s not the same definition that I would use when I say “I am certain that when I drop my pen, unless prevented by an outside influence, it will fall and hit the floor.”

    If this was written in the context of a scientific textbook I would define certain as it pertains to this post. As it is written with the tag “humor” among other things I didn’t intend for it to have any further explanation. 🙂

    I have to agree with alot of these.. The one thing I am certain of is I never want to go back to being the “old me”.. The peace that comes along with having a relationship with Jesus Christ is unlike anything I have ever felt before..

    I am going to check out the blue parakeet. sounds like a book I could most definitely benefit from.. God bless ya!!!

  4. I am CERTAIN that you are wrong about #7. And here’s your link to the superior platform everybody…


    Also, I’m not so certain about #2. And I’ve got pretty good company — a VERY prominent professor at HUGSR. You may or may not know who that is.

  5. Matt Dabbs says:


    Have you tried both? I have and wordpress is tops. 🙂 The only edge I give to blogger is the ability to run java scripts in the sidebar. WordPress.com doesn’t let you do that. 🙁

    As far as #2 I think I know who you are talking about…I am wondering if there is a difference in giving worship to the Holy Spirit and seeing God as trinitarian. I know one who will not sing “Spirit we love you we worship and adore you…” because there is no evidence that we are to give worship to the H.S.

  6. My fav’s:
    #4 – Have to of those type and it only gets better!!
    #10- Still learning this one, the hard way, but lovin every lesson along the way
    #25 – God is AWESOME!
    Thanks for a cool list…ye maketh me thinketh. 🙂

    I would seriously consider removing #9 before Chuck saw it!!!



  8. I have a question about WordPress: why do all the templates have these miniature smiley faces on the side?

    They creep me out. Another reason to not like WordPress

  9. mattdabbs says:

    The smiley face basically says your visit is being counted. I wish they could have hid that behind the template or put it down in the corner. What is strange is that I see it too and my own visits are not counted in my wordpress stats so I am not sure if it works they way they say it does.

  10. mattdabbs says:


    I was a little cautious about putting that on there. That is why I didn’t add a Chuck Norris tag. I figured he might search for himself and come and beat me up or something.

    I’m not sure I understand the significance of the linked article at #6.
