Nov. 30

It’s the last day of November,it’s true,but I’ve already started making Christmas cards. Just thought I’d get a head start. I’m using pictures out of old magazines and making them nontraditional.  Leave me your address and I’ll send you one! Unless I’ve already made one for you. 😉 Don’t worry,Grams,yours is already done. ❤

We’ve had a lot of snow already. I guess that’s what put me in the mood for Christmas greetings.

I just added a really neat song to my vodpod over there and the right towards the top. It’s extraordinarily well done,please listen to it;you’ll be impressed.

Until next time,

Read this Post Haste!

1 Corinthians 1:17-2:2 (King James Version)

 

 17For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

 18For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

 19For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

 20Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

 21For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

 22For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

 23But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

 24But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

 25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

 26For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

 27But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

 28And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

 29That no flesh should glory in his presence.

 30But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

 31That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 2

 1And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.

 2For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

birthday eve

Mmmm…tomorrow’s my birthday. 19 smells kinda like that squash cake I’m cooking.I wanted to try something new. It smells like maple and it has walnuts in it. I bet it’ll be moist. I’m gonna let my kid decorate it when she’s here tomorrow. (Since I did her’s she wants to return the favor.) I say cool,I like to just eat them once in a while.

I have a promise of biscuits and gravy for breakfast.

 I have a package here from somebody.

And! My uncle is probably going to call me! Along with my aunts and a couple of cousins,and maybe a grandma or two…and they’re probably gonna sing to me…oh joy!

If being 19 involves adventure;I’m ready!

Give thanksing

 

As it’s been getting closer to Thanksgiving,I’ve been thinking more and more about the last year. I think I ate Thanksgiving dinner with my left hand. That was just after my little plate collision with my right elbow.

 I was about to turn 18. 

Earlier in that month of Nov. I had become a rebelutionary,after reading the book by Alex and Brett Harris. I wanted to do hard things. I just wasn’t sure how. How do you search for hard things to do?

 Little did I know then that I didn’t have to look but identify the situation. I got many chances to do hard things.

I got to suffer a little pain,colds,the flu and bloody noses,until just breathing was hard.

I got to stand up for what I believe in. Stand up for truth. Even one of those harder things;myself. 

I got to gain and lose all friends,as some came from far away and then all moved far away. I was given opportunities for some wonderful good times,and to lay them down when they were done. 

I learned that trusting gets you hurt,but to trust anyways;especially a God who loves me.

 I had many simple moments in thanks of Him; like water droplets on the grass,like the sound of rain falling,like bright warm sunshine,and the stars at 5:30.

 Chances to sing and teach Sunday School. Wonderful times with my pastor’s family.

 Having my charge run and hug me when I pick her up from Head Start.

I really can’t complain when I get sugar in my water instead of salt. Having a matched pair of escorts is pretty handy. Even getting patted on the head. Overwhelming opinions and protection.

Good food and a warm house.

The unexpected circumstances that turn into grand adventures.

 All in all it’s been an exciting year.

          It’s life and I’m thankful for a chance to live it.
