WWE: A Few Observations

First of all, let me make it VERY clear that I am NOT a fan of WWE. DH loves it as a stress reliever for him, and that’s all fine and dandy. Since he IS a fan, I *get* to watch it or listen to it from another room every single Monday night. Therefore, I posit the following observations.

The Women–I predict that they will have a much shorter shelf life than the “wrestlers” on the show due to the fact that no matter how much plastic surgery they have, they will be tossed aside when they reach that not-so-magic old lady age. That would be about 35 in Hollywood years.

The Wrestlers–This is a term I use VERY loosely since I went to actual wrestling matches in high school, watched actual wrestlers, and found it to be a fascinating sport. WWE bears zero resemblance to what I saw then.

The Belt–Is it big enough?

The Clothes–Men in panties. Um. Okay.

The Dude Pretending To Be Irish–I’ve heard of tanning beds, but where on earth do you find a whitening bed? This guy’s skin is preternaturally white. I mean really–is there a whitening bed somewhere that I don’t know about? And what about that flaming red hair? I’m pretty sure it’s not what God gave him.

The Waxing–How on earth did they talk these guys into waxing their ENTIRE bodies?

THE STAR–Currently THE STAR seems to be John Cena. Just how does one achieve that lofty status? I remember Hulk Hogan and Rowdy Roddy Piper,  but seriously that’s about it. I know those guys are too old to play with the young boys now, but what warrants the crown?

The Announcer(s)–The only qualification I can see for this position is to be VERY loud and annoying.

So there you have it–my few observations on WWE. I know I left many players out, but this will do for now.


Great advice!


I recently had the incredible privilege of conducting the wedding of one of my best friends. And as we stood there under a magnificent tree, I wanted to make sure the words I shared with the couple were both profound and personal. I’m not sure if I hit the mark, but here’s the verse I used, and three takeaways I got from it:

Seize life! Eat bread with gusto,
Drink wine with a robust heart.
Oh yes – God takes pleasure in your pleasure!
Dress festively every morning. 
Don’t skimp on colours and scarves.
Relish life with the spouse you love
Each and every day of your precarious life.
Each day is God’s gift. It’s all you get in exchange
For the hard work of staying alive. 
Make the most of each one!
Whatever turns up, grab it and do it. And heartily!
– Ecclesiastes 9:7-10 MSG

We Just Think We’re Driving

Today when I was driving to work, I saw a little boy driving a riding lawn mower.

Of course, he wasn’t really driving. He was sitting in his pawpaw’s lap and steering the mower with pawpaw at the ready to save the day if Junior made a wrong turn or veered off on the wrong path.

I kinda think it’s like that in our own lives. We just think we’re driving when really Father God has us in His lap letting us think we’re in control when really he’s in the driver’s seat all the time.

I think I like that whether it’s completely accurate theology or not.
