Christian Carnival CXCIV (194)

Many got the notification that the Carnival this week would be late. I have always skirted this edge because my two long work days were on Wednesday and Thursday. When I changed jobs within my company my days off became Tuesday and Wednesday - the perfect host schedule really.

Now, the theme of this Carnival was going to be something about birthdays - since mine was Thursday. It was also going to be a breeze - I would have a whole day off on Wednesday instead of going to work. However, one passage stands out now after the computer issues I had from Monday - Thursday:

James 4: 13 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into this or that town and spend a year there and do business and make a profit.” 14 You do not know about tomorrow. What is your life like? For you are a puff of smoke that appears for a short time and then vanishes. 15 You ought to say instead, “If the Lord is willing, then we will live and do this or that.” 16 But as it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. 17 So whoever knows what is good to do and does not do it is guilty of sin. (NET Bible)
The theme became (and nothing was easy or relaxed):

Just Get er' Done

There is a general section, and an environment directed section, and the posts in each are in order of reciept. It is a great Carnival, made greater by anticipation (I hope):

Enjoy the rides at this week’s Carnival.


  1. Way to get 'er done! Sorry your week went haywire, but it all looks good nonetheless. Happy Birthday, too!

  2. My post should be "Prayer and the Environment" not "Rear View Mirrors."
    Could your correct this?
