I saw Mona Lisa Smile, and didn't like it. I also saw Peter Pan. It was alright, save one segment that was simply way overdone, but hey, they had to keep little kids amused for two hours.
I ditched a message board I'd been attending for one set up by a favorite author of mine, Ted Dekker, as the people on that particular board actually understand the meaning of the word "maturity." They're very nice, and other than one girl who's fifteen, I'm the youngest, I think. We're all Christians, readers, and writers, which is pretty cool. We may disagree, but we don't sound like third graders in the process. I'll admit I'm a little gunshy about what I say, after the hostile enviornment of the previous board. I think I'm loosening up a bit, though. We'll see.
Been working on the King's Annals, and considering just how much work I'm going to have to put into it. It's scary, I'll tell you. I don't trust myself...so I'm having difficulties. But, never fear! I've done far too much to quit now. I'll finish if it takes me a hundred years...and if God lets me live that long, hehe.
No one's taken me up on guessing that quote, I see. Well, it's not that hard, give it a shot.
I finished the last of the Thoene's Zion Legacy series, and have read half of my new book of theirs I got for Christmas (yes, I can read two books in twenty-four hours!! Why? Because I'm INSANE!), which is the first of the series immediately following it. I also got two books written by their son Jake Thoene. As soon as my dad finishes them, I can read them as well. Yes, my daddy nabbed the first one within hours of my opening it!! Ack! hehe, it's what happens with three book lovers under one roof. Now I just wait...and I read much faster, so I'll be waiting awhile.....
I got a Christmas e-card from one of my Ukrainian friends/correspondants. It was sweet.
"What is man that you are mindful of him? His life is but a breath that appears for a short while and then is gone." "Heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool. Where then will you build a house for Me? For My hands made all these things..."
"Be still and know that He is God. Be still and know He is a King. Be still and know that He is Savior....
...Be still...Be amazed...Be speechless."
I never thought about "Be still and know that I am God" can also be said, "Be speechless. I am God. I am he who made the heavens and the earth; I am a King, and I rule over all. I sit enthroned above the earth; all creation bows before me, and all sing my praise. By my hand nations rise and fall; by my command one king is raised up and destroyed. I am the Righteous Judge; I am your Redeemer. I am the Lamb of God, and I have ransomed you as a father pays ransom for his son, or a master pays the debt of his slave. I am Lord, Master and Maker of everything. I am beautiful, desireable, and I am your Sustainer. By my command, by my will, and by my mercy do you live; my glory I share with none. There is none like me; there never has been, and there never will be. So stand before me, and be in awe, be amazed; be speechless."
Pretty cool, eh? So much to learn from one little song sung at a Christmas Eve service.
"Be still and know that He is God. Be amazed. Be in awe. Be speechless."
