I love that if you look up something on google you usually get really generic photos
But if you add “tumblr” to your search you get really beautiful, artistic pictures
HAHAHAHHAHA. “studying” for finals…has begun.
Psalms, Bible, and Potluck
Final Lord’s Day bible study for the semester. Ended on Hebrews 6. Christ brought the anchor of my soul straight to the very presence of God.

Sunny is taking the picture. Patrick is somewhere…
YAY! we are missing regulars Mary and Betsy, but this was definitely a great Hebrews study! Thanks for leading, Alex.
Researching for my final project about Inuit wedding traditions, I come across this Inuit Love Song that is exchanged between husband and wife. I see my romantic side showing through because I thought this quite lovely.
You are my husband. You are my wife.
My feet shall run because of you.
My feet dance because of you.
My heart shall beat because of you.
My eyes see because of you.
My mind thinks because of you.
And I shall love because of you.
Too many things.
I need everyone to know that there is definitely a limit as to how much “My Strange Addiction” and “Freaky Eating” youtube clips you can watch. I don’t think I will be able to sleep tonight. Another huge distraction find is “Worst Thing that Happened to Me” which basically sucked the last hour of my life. Oh my glob. Definitely not a good decision.
Phone call from Ashley.
I just got a phone call from Ashley Stone.
I had to let that sink in for a second. The last time I saw her, I was in her ICU bedroom praying she would get out of her coma. It’s been almost 2 months now and my dear sweet friend is about to be discharged from the Shepherd Center. Incredible. Incredible what God does.
I hesitated when I picked up the phone because I honestly could not believe it. I’ve been keeping up with her father’s daily journals on CaringBridge so I knew that she was recovering rapidly.
She told me she called me because I had called her before her accident, and she just wanted to call me back to tell me how she was doing.
She returned a phone call to me almost 2 months after I had made it.
Oh Holy Lord, it is so so so sobering and humbling to see your servants love Your Church.
How do I describe the depths of great joy and love of hearing my friend’s voice again?
Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.
"Yet Adam, the son of God, was being tested in his obedience to His Father and Creator. He, the first man, held the destiny of all his descendants, for his was the pivotal role. He was the father of those to be born in his image; he represented the race of those who would come from him. By obedience under testing, his righteousness would pass beyond its original innocence, He would know the difference between good and evil by choosing the good. He would be confirmed as the righteous son of God, free to eat of the tree of life forever."
Edmund P. Clowney, The Unfolding Mystery: Discovering Christ in the Old Testament
How profound. I never conceived that had Adam obeyed God, he would have still gained the knowledge of good and evil. He would have learned good by obedience and understood disobedience as evil.
