Hey, it's Carnival time!

Christian Carnival is on! After the uncertainty of the handover teething problems of last week, this week's carnival is working like a well-oiled machine, attesting to the administration gifts of the current coordinator, Dory of Wittenberg Gate. This week's Carnival is being hosted at Wallo World. I posted up my meditation on blessings and curses, which is a culmination of a series of posts where I bared my soul due to the events of the past few weeks. I am still feeling raw from being fired from my job, and still questioning the wisdom of standing up to a crazy boss, rather than taking it all in. But now it is in the past, and I have to look towards the future.

Perhaps I can find wisdom in the posting from other Christian Carnivaliers, such as, Ray Pritchard whose post, "Does this man has a future", resonates with me, as I struggle with the misconception that failure in business and financial matters equate to bad testimony to the Lord who gives success to His people, a kind of distortion of the wealth and health gospel.

Anyway, there are many good posts up at the Carnival, from theological ponderings to thoughts about Teri Schiavo. Incidentally, Wittenberg Gate has been hosting the Bloggers Best for Teri Schiavo. You can find part one here. When I first learned of this project, I thought my next posting on the series on the Commandments is ideal for this since I have just done the fifth commandment and should be ready to tackle the sixth, but I ran out of steam and creative juices this week, mainly because I have been emotionally drained by the past week's events. Not sure when my next post on the Commandments series will take be up. It will be up when it is I suppose. That's the way it goes with blogging, you know?

By the way, if you are interested in participating in future Christian Carnivals, please go here for instructions. In the meantime enjoy "this week's fare at Wallo World!
