long time no see!


  Hey guys! What have you all been up to in my absence? Wow, I've been gone for a long time! I haven't really done much this summer, but I've been very busy somehow, if you know what I mean:) Since that didn't make sense, let me explain. When Veritas let out in May, I was so tired of writing that I didn't want to think of typing one more word for a REALLY long time.;) Then my dad and brother went on a two week mission trip to Uganda, which by the way was awesome! Then we kind of just had those long summer days where you go to the beach, play outside, or go on road trips. Just typical summer things. Let's just say summer snuck up on me too fast, and all of the sudden it's time for school again! I'm a freshmen now, which means tons a LOT more writing! But in spite of this, I'm ready to start blogging again! Let me hear YAY! from y'all!  Just kidding!:) I am glad to be back though.
   To get back to writing, I thought it would be kind of cool to start memorizing portions of the Bible as a group. We could come up with a verse to memorize, then practice it for a week. By the end of the week, everyone could recite (by commenting) the verse. I just thought this would be a good way to keep each other accountable for memorizing God's Word. Anyway, just let me know if anyone is interested.

 Have a great wonderful week!

Quotes by Jim Elliot

  

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”


“Forgive me for being so ordinary while claiming to know so extraordinary a God.”


“We are so utterly ordinary, so commonplace, while we profess to know a Power the Twentieth Century does not reckon with. But we are "harmless," and therefore unharmed. We are spiritual pacifists, non-militants, conscientious objectors in this battle-to-the-death with principalities and powers in high places. Meekness must be had for contact with men, but brass, outspoken boldness is required to take part in the comradeship of the Cross. We are "sideliners" -- coaching and criticizing the real wrestlers while content to sit by and leave the enemies of God unchallenged. The world cannot hate us, we are too much like its own. Oh that God would make us dangerous!”

“If we are the sheep of His pasture, remember that sheep are headed for the altar.”

PLEASE Read This!!

   "Then I will also say to those on the left hand, 'Depart from me you cursed, into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave me no food; I was thirst and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.' Then they also will answer Him saying, 'Lord, when did I see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?'

[pic2.jpg]"Then He will answer them saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do unto Me."                                                                        Matthew 25:41-45

O Sacred Head Now Wounded

crown-of-thorns
O sacred Head, now wounded, 
 with grief and shame weighed down, 
 now scornfully surrounded 
 with thorns, thine only crown: 
 how pale thou art with anguish, 
 with sore abuse and scorn! 
 How does that visage languish 
 which once was bright as morn! 

2. What thou, my Lord, has suffered 
 was all for sinners' gain; 
 mine, mine was the transgression, 
 but thine the deadly pain. 
 Lo, here I fall, my Savior! 
 'Tis I deserve thy place; 
 look on me with thy favor, 
 vouchsafe to me thy grace. 

3. What language shall I borrow 
 to thank thee, dearest friend, 
 for this thy dying sorrow, 
 thy pity without end? 
 O make me thine forever; 
 and should I fainting be, 
 Lord, let me never, never 
 outlive my love for thee.
