I'm gonna go to Pruit and Lobit in Baytown Sunday so I'll get to see some of those people!
Thanks for all the comments on the previous post. Ya'll are great.
Well, I gotta run. I'm "behind schedule" already today. haha
Soo.. I drove to West Columbia yesterday. I'm going to help my mom do a bunch of stuff, because she will be having knee surgery in a week and will be out of commission for a while. She is kind of nervous because she has never had this big of a surgery before. Her being nervous makes me kind of nervous, because she is usually so invincible, haha. well so it seems. But I know she would appreciate any prayers in hopes that the surgery goes well, she has had so much pain lately doing simple daily activities.
I just watched Pursuit of Happiness last night with my dad; it was a really awesome movie. I had only seen the first part of it before. It was inspiring :) AND it made me think about how blessed I am.
So, I cannot believe that I only have one year of college left. And time keeps flying by. That's one thing I've been thinking about today. I feel like I've grown a lot since I came to CS, but I also feel like I've wasted a bunch of time that I could have been more productive as a Christian. Like everyone I have highs and lows, but I want to work on being more consistently on a "spiritual high."-- keeping my focus more consistently. I think it's something I have trouble with.
I was looking at my notes from a couple of sermons from our gospel meeting earlier this year. One was "Taking Time to Grow." There are so many good points I need to think about in this lesson:
As Christians we Don't have an option of growing or not.
*Growth is ESSENTIAL: Either we grow -and we keep growing -or we die. (There is no plateau we can reach where further growth is unnecessary!) 1 Corinthians 10.12 "Let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall."
*We are COMMANDED to grow: 2 Peter 1.5-11 If we aren't growing- we will be gradually weakening- and before we know it, we will have lost our faith.
*Growth is INTENTIONAL: Spiritual growth is always the result of deliberate decision.
*Spiritual growth is COSTLY: Spiritual growth is like any other thing of value- cost is proportional to value. In the long run, we grow spiritually about as much as we're willing to pay for it by the sacrifice of some other time consuming things. Jesus is a good example of this in Mark 1:35, He gave up time to sleep/rest- to pray! I really like sleep, so that hits home for me.
Someone wisely said that we can have anything in life we want, but we can't have everything! So, we have to decide what's important.
There’s lots more, but I think this post is way long already, so if you made it all the way through, YAY for you! I guess I have a right to a long post since I haven’t written one in SO long!
my post wasn't very exciting. That's why I never post anymore. hmph. haha. And true
it did rain tonight, so I am no longer amazed.
I had a dream that more and more people started getting pleonast and it added all these new features and eventually became the next myspace.. ewe
It's been way too long since I've posted, sorry guys..
The Texas Rock Lock was loads of fun. Thank you to all the people that organized that!
Can anyone tell me the date of the Klienwood singing?
Amazingly enough, it hasn't rained all day! And it's very sunny!
Verse of the Day:
"When I said, My foot slippeth; they mercy, O Lord, held me up. In the multitude of my thoughts within me they comforts delight my soul."
Psalm 94. 18-19
Sorry that was a very random post. I don't really have much to say. I've had a great summer so far. How has everyone else's been?
I decided today I'm going to be super productive with schoolwork! yay me.
Spring break was super duper fun.
Snow was fun.
Being in a car for two days, wasn't as fun.
We all decided flying is definitely better :-)
And, also, skiing for a day was fun.
Sledding was amazing.
Well, I'm gonna go be productive some more!
