7 Things that Annoy Me

IMG_0173

There are definitely a lot more than 7 things I get annoyed by, but I thought it was a good place to start. After all, 7 is a biblical number.

Actual grown up adults saying words like ickle and hospickle, especially in front of children. Its not cute or clever, and you are teaching those children really bad habits! (You can add people who cant seem to grasp the difference between was and were to this one as well.)

Family photos in bathrooms. No, I don’t need your Great Aunt watching me do my business!

Feeling the pressure to open plastic bags in supermarkets. Although, I don’t have to worry about that one so much anymore!

Having to wait for more than three minutes for a bus. Because living in a huge city, I really shouldn’t have to, should I?

People who moan about their kids on Facebook. There are so many people who would love to be blessed in that way. Please don’t take it for granted.

Animal lovers. Not the animals but the people who are overly attached to them, and think you should be too.. No. I don’t want your filthy dog jumping on me. And I really  don’t care if it’s just trying to be friendly.

When I run out of data on my phone. Because I obviously really, really need to have access to face book at all times!

I’m sure that we can all come up with lists like this. I know I love to moan, about the weather, about my job, about where I live, and so many other things. But it’s pathetic, really, when we are so blessed.

As Christians we have a responsibility to stop whinging about our coffee being too cold and open our eyes to the problems around the world.

Problems such as these:

There are an estimated 27 million slaves in the world today.

And the average age of a woman being trafficked is just 12-14 years.

1.2 billion people have to live on less than $1.25 a day.

757 million adults  don’t have basic literacy. Two-thirds (63 percent) are women.

When giving birth, more than half of mothers and babies in developing countries don’t receive skilled care.

Over 1.5 billion people live in countries that are impacted by conflict.

Over 40% of the world’s people groups have no  community of Christians able to spread the gospel to the rest of their group.

  1. Yes, this is so true. Many of us are so blessed and fail to realize just how good we have it in regards to essential needs: like safety, food, and education. I was just thinking about trafficking today. I hate it, it bothers me so much. I look forward to Christ’s return, when the pain will be no more! Thanks for this great reminder!

  2. I have to name 1 thing that really annoys me! — People who like Donald Trump and say they will vote for him! I know you are not from the U.S., so this isn’t important to you, but it is my current #1 thing that annoys me! Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.
