I live near a gorge. It’s a wonderful and beautiful sight to see and expore in, but in the winter and spring time- it’s windy. Now I’m not talking about wind that gently blows your hair or wind that make tree leaves look as if their dacing to an unheard symphony. No-I’m talking about the wind that picks up trees, topples garbage cans, makes telephone poles sway and makes you think that to go outside is suicide. I for one did my part of grumbling because of the cold and well… freezing cold wind. Howeve I decided to turn a leaf and embrace the energy it brings to the city. I mean really, how often can I remember holding my hat onto my head and running diagonally because of the power of the wind?
This wonderous wind instead makes me more thankful for the normal conveniences I would have taken for granted. Example: hats which protect my ears, fleece lined gloves, electric blankes, tall shrubbs to hide behind from the wind, cars with heating and tall buildings to protect me from the speading leaves and debree.
So thank you!
(even though i can say this right now snuggled inside my electric blanket listening to christmas music… I will see how I feel tomorrow when I have to walk to and from to school.)
My appologies for not writing so often. I admit I am tired and frustrated. I am tired from the month and a half of traveling around the world. (as much fun as that sounds-believe me, it can get old) And frustrated because I am now stuck at my fathers house without any transportation for three weeks. I am afraid God heard me when I was complaining saying all I wanted was peace and quiet. well, I have it and I am board out of my mind.
I will be going back to school Sept 10th. I am looking forward to it and am excited about school. I know-that’s crazy. But that is my only sense of stabiblity. I also have to face a year so full of stuff I get a headache thinking about it.
student/leadership secretary/teacher/barista/girlfriend/the list goes on…
So, all in all I think I would ask you to pray for me concerning my quiet times. I know without a shadow that I will be dependant on those times this coming year, but I also know I need to start them now if I am to go into school with this pattern. So, I need to start this quiet time and so far all I have done is nod my head and say’oh, yeah that’s important.’
Thanks and I hope to write later saying my quiet time has become a daily habit.
It’s ok to call me a book nerd. I love books- they’re awesome. To anyone who is interested about new authors- look into Francine Rivers. She is so awesome! I will refer her to anyone and would love to hear what anyone else thinks about her.
If anyone also knows how to contact her I would love to know. Thanks and enjoy your new books!
I have recently found out about the micro-chips people are putting on themselves and their children-for the protection of their kids I understand. Themselves I guess it’s for convenience. But are we going to far? I can say that it is really interesting to me and that I am impressed at the technically advancements we have in society today.
However, a couple of my friends are talking about this being completly horrific and ungodly. I can see thier point as well. Will it come to a point where you are unable to buy food unless you don’t have the chip (or could I say ‘mark’?) Is this the mark so many christians are talking about? I hope my Lord will come soon, yet I hope for my beliefs to remain steadfast. Lord, give me the strength I want so badly.
right now i can say without any hesitation -i am truely in love. have you ever felt that feeling? the feeling of seeing a dark rainy day in the morning and saying “how beautiful it is today!” or have you ever felt the feeling of being fuzzy headed because all the wonderful mushy thoughts ecircling your head? i am so happy and lucky to love him and for him to love me!!
he is by far the greatest gift God has ever given me and i will hold on tight. thank you Lord for such a wonderful, God centered relationship. we both praise your name for bringing us together.
sometimes my world becomes a stressful mesh of mushiness. it is so frustrating how much stress is created when i don’t have money. it is in these times when i see how much i depend on God and how He directs my life like a symphony. yet when i try to take control of my life, using money, it just turns into crap.
thank you god for your love and control in my life.
blistly beautiful. isn’t it amazing how one can look out a window on a cold windy day and see the flowers and hear birds singing?! i am just in love with Gods creativity. one can look out into the world and see mountais with snow, a dessert sprinkled with oasis’s and plains where the wheat sway to the wind. how cool! in just the same manner one can look at people and see the many differences in each person. God is cool.
i love you lord, and i lift my voice…
to worshipo you, oh my soul rehoice.
take joy my king in what you hear…
may it be a sweet , sweet sound in your ear.
Please pray for me. i am just angry and frustrated with a friend and i have to confront them on an issue. it is never fun for me to do this , so please pray that they are reseptive. and that their heart are open to hear what i need to tell them. also, i need the courage to say things bluntly to them. thanks…
My friend made a comment yesterday, during class that made me stop and think ‘what?’
He said Jesus’ disciples weren’t desciples until they were baptised. what do you think? i have looked in the Bible and haven’t found anything to support that idea. however, if you have a scripture source that would prove the other i would love to hear it.
I started this blog to have a chance to write and express my love and awe to my Lord. I’m smiling right now because it is such a wonder to me, a non computer person, to think that my thoughts and ideas will reach you and that what I write will make you think-that’s my hope at least. My wish is for us to praise His Holy name as brothers and sisters and just soak in His awesomeness. Here’s a quick something I wrote a while back- I hope you enjoy it…
Your love is like the ocean, vast and wide.
powerful like none other.
who can control the winds of the sea?
Your might and majesty are uncomprehendable.
the fishes cry of your splendor, the whales speak of your love.
Mighty is your hand-may it always be uplifting us…
