Peace that passes understanding

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

So I was looking this morning for a passage I’ve always wanted to memorize, but never have (Philippians 4:8, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”) […]

Our Unchanging God

Monday, January 30th, 2012

Reading the beginning of Amos today showed me another “New Testament” concept that was really in full force in the Old Testament, giving more credence to the unchanging nature of God. Amos was written during the divided kingdom, and was addressed to the northern kingdom of Israel (the southern kingdom was referred to as Judah). […]

So a few weeks ago I got into a discussion with a couple guys at school about how we needed a good nearly-literal Bible translation with no verse numbers in it. I looked around and couldn’t find anything other than the old KJV (which is great if you know that language). So I decided I’d […]

Vikings vs Patriots

Sunday, October 31st, 2010

Ok, I don’t know if anyone else caught this, but everyone seems to be ignoring it. Longwell just kicked a ball that was then caught by… Farwell! Is that not funny to anyone else?

SMS, MMS, and Me

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

Woohoo! I just finished getting MMS (pix messages) working on my phone, and since I now have an unlimited texting plan, I have finally put my sweet sweet script into action! Here’s what happens: Whenever anyone sends an E-mail to my main E-mail address, a copy is sent to my text script. The text script […]

Grace in Leviticus

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

Yeah, I was surprised too. I think that everyone (myself included) seems to think that the Old Testament is full of laws and legalism, and that Grace only came after Christ died. Well after reading today in Leviticus, I’ve decided to read the rest of the OT from a new perspective: One of grace. I’m […]

Old Testament

Friday, October 16th, 2009

So as I was reading Leviticus 14-15 this morning, learning all about the ceremonial laws concerning leprosy and “bodily discharges” (a kinda gross topic), I couldn’t help but think: So what can I glean from this passage? Surely this stuff isn’t directly applicable to my life, and I’ve never been one to squeeze out an […]


Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

I read from Galatians this morning (sort of a random decision on my part since I didn’t have my Bible that had my place marked), and was taught a thing or two about freedom from the law. It seems to me that this is a freedom to serve God, without being worried about each individual […]

Before and After

Sunday, June 7th, 2009

Consider these two photos… I think I’ve gotten a lot better at what happens to a kitchen after I cook… So I’m holding this beautiful pie that Justin and I made. Justin pretty much handled the produce for me, and his wife Amber gave me a couple general baking tips, but that beautiful lattice weave […]
