2. There is a couple who has been coming to our church for a little while, invited by some other friends. The wife recently got saved, and we had them over for dinner the other night.
Ironically, they live right down the road from us.
It was really encouraging to talk to her! She is just (I quote) " obsessed with Jesus!" She really has the joy of salvation!
And it made me think: "Hey! You have the same thing she has. How come you don't sound like that? What? You're used to it? You don't appreciate it, you mean. You should be even more excited because you've had all this time to get closer to the Lord! Stop taking it for granted, and get excited about being saved!"
And that is the thing with getting saved at a young age.
You haven't been out in the world.
You dont know what it's like to have nobody but yourself to depend on.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you should go out in the filth of the world to see how nice being clean is!
But we have to stop and think about, or we'll forget to appreciate what we have.
3. So the husband never gave a clear testimony, but said he was really learning a lot in church.
Well, Sunday he told our friends (who originally invited them to our church) that he got saved! Double awesome!
5.I'm taking a literature class, and a lot of it has been rather yucky (in more ways than one). Right now we are looking at China (poetry, to be specific), and some of it is still a bit un-fun, but some of it is unique and elegant. It drives me nuts that it doesn't rhyme, but here's one piece I liked:
Sitting Alone by Ching-t'ing Mountain
The flock of birds have flown high and away,
A solitary cloud goes off calmly alone.
We look at each other and never get bored-
Just me and Ching-t'ing Mountain
OK, now go back and read it again, and try to visualize exactly what the words say. Like, build a picture in my mind. I love hiking behind my house, and sometimes I see a beautiful scene and don't really know how to express it. When I read that poem, those scenes came to mind.
I dont know, it might be just me. But I wanted to share it.
This is my doodle pad. :)
