My Daily Life and Thoughts while in San Diego | List of Best Posts
This blog is where I express myself to the world or at least to those who might stop by to read what I post . Maybe God will use what I post (I am a Christian and this blog will have a most decidedly Christian bent to it) to good effect in the lives of my readers.

I may turn some of my posts into a book. I may cease blogging here altogether. Who knows. But for now..I am content to post away in this, my own little corner of the world.

Rather than reading through my now lengthy list of posts you may wish to read what I consider to be my very best posts or you can just read the posts that deal with a single subject category that might interest you.

Please know that I am open to any input on any topic I write about. If you have something to say about anything you see written here please....feel free to speak up in the form of leaving a comment or sending me a PM (private message).

And if you are in San Diego and wish to meet the one and only Carlos (that's me )...drop me a private message. I always enjoy meeting one of my readers!



PS. If you want to follow my blog such that you will get an email when I write new posts you can subscribe to my blog.

My Abbot and Costello moment on the trolley and the nature of San Diego society as seen through thrift stores!

Updated 07-22-2009 at 10:03 AM by carlos123 (Changed who did what between Abbot and Costello...had it wrong initially.)

Abbot and Costello were two comedians in the olden days (for those of you that might not know) who had this one comedy routine that was really funny.

In short Abbot grills Costello on the names of players on a baseball team that he is going to be the coach for and which Costello is a member of.

Who is the name of the first...

The Gospel...according to John the Baptist!

Updated 07-20-2009 at 10:10 PM by carlos123 (Changed the title.)

This morning I continued my reading in Luke (a book in the Bible) and was particularly struck by the difference between how the Gospel is presented in many modern day churches and how it was presented in the New Testament, in this case by John the Baptist.

Today the Gospel has become to a great extent if not entirely in some circles, a feel good message.

Invite Jesus to come into your heart (terminology found nowhere in the New Testament by the way), God has a wonderful...

I pray with a woman at a bus stop and then have a wonderful time of fellowship with Christians on Skype.

Posted 07-20-2009 at 01:32 AM by carlos123 (My Daily Life and Thoughts while in San Diego)

Earlier in the day I went to the Kobe's swap meet at last.

On the way there I had a chance to talk to a woman on the bus and to naturally mention God to her as part of our conversation. I wasn't trying to convert her or anything, though of course for her sake I would want her to enter into right relationship to God.

She basically confessed a sin to me (before getting on the bus) as a stranger that she had not confessed to her own husband and we had a chance to talk...

My blindness and how the Lord is using the Body to help me see!

Posted 07-17-2009 at 01:10 PM by carlos123 (My Daily Life and Thoughts while in San Diego)
Updated 07-17-2009 at 01:23 PM by carlos123

This morning a friend of mine took me out to breakfast and got together with me to fellowship and I was reminded through our time of how the Lord uses the Body to help each of us become more like Christ.

One of my strong points is that I know the Bible quite well. I can discuss doctrinal issues with the best of them. Partly because of that solid Christian foundation and perhaps because there may be some spiritual gift of some sorts regarding discernment in there somewhere too...little...

One of the really nice benefits of blogging at city-data!

Posted 07-16-2009 at 12:14 PM by carlos123 (My Daily Life and Thoughts while in San Diego)

You know...I've been thinking that while I would still like to some day start an independently hosted blog (I hear the song "Someday over the rainbow..." in the background of my mind somewhere) that there are some distinct advantages to continuing to blog here.

The biggest one being this...

If I should have an independently hosted blog and should end up dying (while in the middle of writing my best blog post of course)...my blog posts will all but disappear...
