Kanye West flagged for Unsportsman like conduct!

Last night at the MTV VMA Awards Kanye West through a tantrum when Taylor Swift won for best Female Video.  He got up on stage and blasted her saying that Beyonce should have won the award.  This seems to be a patteren of behavior for Kanye, and the unfortunate thing is it's a display of poor sportmanship.  Perhaps as bad, Serena Williams had an ugly outburst at the US Open yesterday, again another poor display of sportsmanship.  As much as we would like to throw the book at Kanye, or Serena, I think we all have our moments when good sportsmanship goes out the window.

Their poor behavior was much more public than ours, but I imagine that most of us have had our "moments".  Shining our light as believers isn't always easy, if it was I suppose that there may be a lot more people who would be following Christ.  As a believer, Christ calls to a life of service and self sacrafice.  Watching someone else's failure is many times a reminder of my own failures, and I am reminded of the incredible grace that Jesus extends toward us, even at our very worst. 

That is the Good News that the world needs to know about, and we have the incredible privalage of telling them about it.  Ironically enough, today's KLOVE Encouraging Word is a reminder to all of us, Matthew 5:13 says, "You are the salt of the Earth, but what good is it, if salt loses it's flavor?"  The whole world may not see our bad behavior, but there is always someone watching that God has charged us with reaching.  My prayer is that I don't fail God, and live my life for His Glory even when I think no one is watching!!!

What item do you overpay for? Why?

A list of the top overpriced products came out today. On the list, brand name fashions, printer ink, bottled water, college textbooks, greeting cards and movie theater popcorn! Why are we willing to pay so much for these things?! What item do you overpay for? Why?

I am a financially changed person thanks to Dave Ramsey's guidance. Yes, please feel free to call me a cheapskate. I don't intentionally overpay for anything. Watch the sales, buy used, recycle, have swap parties with friends. And drink tap water - it's better for the environment anyway!

We try to buy more all natural and organic that are so much better for you than the other stuff.
(Our local Krogers have a decent selection of such.)
Normally, the prices are higher than the traditional brands but it is so well worth it.
(The difference in price would be something like if the regular brands cost like $99-$2 or $3, the all natural or organic brands would cost like $3-$6. But it so well worth it! (And it's still yummy!)
