On the topic of Maria Kang…

An insightful article from The Matt Walsh Blog.

“Nothing is easy, Haters. Everything is earned. They have it because they earned it. You don’t because you didn’t. Deal with it.”

Another skeptical view of “destiny”

Earlier today, I was Googling “The perfect is the enemy of the good,” because, well, you Google things before you go about plastering them at the top of a website, unattributed.

Anyway, I was Googling, and enjoying a few casual interpretations and arguments, when a random blog caught my eye. Titled “Italian Mother Syndrome,” the blog had a recent post that spoke directly to me, in light of one of my recent posts (written, like everything else, with the plan of expansion, perhaps in a later blogging life – hence this blog’s subtitle, the perfect is the enemy of the good. It’s all making sense, see? See?!)

 …A rant about destiny 

…If the Calvinists are to be believed, then we are all riding along in one big Driver’s Ed vehicle where we think we have control of the car, but really the instructor can hit the breaks from the passenger side at any point.

It’s not that I can’t do this alone. (Though let’s be honest — I probably can’t.) It’s more that Ishouldn’t do it alone. So I won’t. Because even if You do know where I’m ending up, I still have no clue what’s coming, so we might as well put the high beams on together.

Amen.

In conclusion… Praise the Lord for the Internet, for folks who write about their faith, and for the creativity and thought processes that such virtual sharing can inspire.

And, Julia? We could totally be friends.
