Month: May 2016
It seems logical to go through the week, soooooo.
Mondays lately I watch Scorpion and NCIS LA. Even though I have always liked NCIS LA I am getting tired of it with the characters always bickering like a couple old ladies all the time. As for scorpion I kind of like the quirky personalities they have given Happy and Toby. Enough said.
Tuesdays I watch NCIS and NCIS New Orleans. I am saddened at the departure of Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) – to me he was the show almost as much as Gibbs. Tony can go from class clown to deadly serious in a heartbeat. As far as New Orleans I think they are going so far into the character interaction thing and the ending scenes in the bar that it takes away from the actually crime aspect – I watch it but whether I continue to watch it is up in the air.
Wednesdays the only show I really look forward to is Criminal Minds. It has stayed true to it’s purpose and although it has changed cast members a few times I still consider it my favorite show
On Thursday night I used to watch Elementary but they seem to have moved it to Sunday night which is a bad sign as I have noticed that shows they move to Sunday are soon cancelled. I like this show a lot and the only drawback is that the main character sometimes talks to fast I have no idea what he is saying.
There are a couple cable shows I like a lot and try not to miss them. The first one is The Artful Detective or on another cable channel they call it Murdoch Mysteries. Good old fashioned detective work and even though it is set in the 1890s it alludes to things happening in todays world. Excellent show.
The next show is Death In Paradise. Set on an island called San Marie. Great blend of characters and I truly enjoy all of them.
Although there are a number of sitcoms I like and enjoy – I am not really concerned if I miss them. The top ones that I find consistently funny are 1. Big Bang Theory, 2. Black (ish), 3. Fresh Off The Boat, 4. Last Man Standing, 5. The Middle. We watch more of them but these are the top ones that I like.
I’m Gonna Sit Here
I’m gonna sit here
Till passion returns
And tells me where to go.
I don’t care if it’s Heaven
or hell or home,
I don’t care if it’s work
or play or sex,
I don’t care if it’s rich
or poor or madness
I don’t even care
if it’s riding a white horse naked on a
Or lining up as we did as kids
for a pissing contest in the old
I’m not going anywhere
—– even to death —–
Until I can go passionately.
I am “Omo Ogbomoso” — a child of Ogbomoso — born in a mission guest house in Nigeria. My family left my childhood home when I was twelve, and I thought I was never to return. Imagine my joy when the opportunity to visit presented itself nearly 40 years later.
When I visited, the house I grew up in was still there, and I introduced myself to the Nigerians who lived there. They invited me inside. How awesome to go through the house, looking at rooms where I used to play!
There’s a phrase that describes people like me: Third Culture Kids (TCK). To us, the term “home” gets confusing. Is home America? Or is it Africa? Or is it a mixture? Home is Arkansas, Mom’s home, where we lived when furloughed from the mission field. Home is also Missouri, where I visited Dad’s parents, and Texas, where I’ve lived most of my adult life. And home is also a city half a world away in Nigeria.
Today’s reading explains that all believers are TCKs; we are all searching for our home — our heavenly one. Imagine our joy when we finally reach it and are united with Christ.
