What would NOAH tweet about?

So news of Darren Aronfsky's NOAH is popping up all over the web.  From this story on USA Today, to hundreds of twitter feeds and facebook posts.

Not only is the excitement is building from the different outlets and word of mouth, but also through Aronfsky's tweets from his direct feed.  You can go follow him here for a play by play on the movie's progress.  Russell Crowe is even engaging in tweeting about his experience along the way.

It made me start thinking, "What would NOAH tweet if he could?"

Day 1 - lots of rain ... people are laughing at my ark.  They think I'm an #epicfail

Day 10 - Water has overcome our city.  People are not laughing anymore.  They're begging to get in.  #thisishard

Day 20 - I don't see a living soul...very sad.  Surrounded by water.  #confusedbutstayingfaithful

Day 30 - I really want off this big boat.  My family is grumbling, but I'm trusting God.  #theanimalssmell

Day 40 - I see a rainbow.  We've found land.  We're stepping out to start anew.  #praiseGod #miracleshappen

When things get hard, what is our reaction?  Do we step out in faith? Or do we grumble and sit by, watching the rain?  I think Noah's story is one of the most intriguing throughout the Bible.  Against all odds - through his family's, friends', and neighbors' doubts - he listened and was obedient.  He never strayed from the task at hand.  I'm not saying he didn't doubt himself or God a little, but he obeyed and was blessed with the opportunity to start a whole new generation.  

I can't wait for this movie.

Undercover Boss Eye Opener

This past week I watched Undercover Boss, which featured Retro Fitness and one employee in particular, who got fired.  Normally Undercover Boss shows a few employees, with great stories and good work ethic, and sometimes there may be a few problem employees.

In this last issue, it seems all anyone is talking about is that one problem employee, named Jacqueline, who was a shining example of what bad attitudes are really about, and was about as bad as they come.

Jacqueline, who on the outside, seemed like a clean cut decent person until she opened her mouth to speak.  And this girl wasn't just rude ... she was abusive to everyone around her. 

As if it wasn't bad enough that she was completely unprofessional and had no compassion for anyone around her at work ... she then turned into the flippant, defensive, careless girl, who talked back to the CEO of the company when he tried to explain his grievances with her.  She passionately denied anything he was trying to explain to her, …

Brian Naranjo - A Celebrated Man

It's Saturday...

It's Saturday, and at this very moment a few hundred miles north of me, my friend is grieving the loss of her husband.

It's Saturday and this week has felt like an eternity.  I've moved through this week with such a heavy heart.

And I feel guilty for being trapped in this fog of sorrow, as I'm not the one who lost my life long partner of over 20 years. I'm not the one who just got my husband back from Afghanistan, only to lose him to an unexpected death.

I can not fathom how my friend is coping, walking step by step through the process of burying her soul mate at the tender young age of 39.

Brian Naranjo would have been 40 years old on February 29th, 2012. Brian Naranjo would have his whole life ahead of him.  He would have been celebrating a marquis year, when you're supposed to reflect on where you've come and what you have left to do. 

In reading his Facebook wall, as I'm inexplicably drawn to it, I've read the many memo…

No, Dude! I Really Don't Want to See That!

Yesterday was one for the books ... 
I was in a meeting with a sales manager at a car dealership, which was almost coming to a close when someone from the lobby alerted the manager that someone had driven up on the lot.  From the look on his face, I could tell that whoever this person was - was not exactly welcome.
He promptly apologized and excused himself so that he could deal with the person we'll call 'Dude'.  Within seconds I heard Dude and could tell that he was high maintenance from the commotion in the lobby.  He had not only shown up in a test drive truck but had a ton of his belongings inside and a trailer hitched to the back.
Patiently, I waited inside hoping that whatever went down wouldn't be a 'situation' as the energy felt in the dealership was a bit heightened.
A few minutes later, the manager returned to process a paperwork for Dude when Dude stepped into the inner office for a quick question.  I smelled him before I saw him as smoke rolled in…
