Verses from Solomon

The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: but transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness. When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: and the hope of unjust men perisheth. The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead. An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered. When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting. By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked. ~ Proverbs 11:6-11

A verse to remember when you're tempted.

As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion. ~ Proverbs 11:22

.....And a Random Question!

What is your favorite kind of pickle?

I love all kinds of pickles although, the sweet is definitely not my fave. If pressed I'd prob'ly say Dill. I LOVE PICKLES!

....A Serious Post - I know! You thought they were a myth! But, they do exist!......

Remaining pure. Now there's a topic that's touchy. Personally, I agree with Josh Harris. Dating shouldn't be about our feelings. Whether or not this is the person you want to marry. That's the question you ought to be trying to settle. I already had vague ideas of this before I read Joshua Harris' book I Kissed Dating Goodbye and it's sequel Boy meets Girl but, reading it just helped clarify so many things for me. I now have clear-cut views about how to go about getting the right guy. That didn't come out right. Of course, I know whoever's out there for me isn't gonna be perfect and I know there's no "set of rules" about exactly how to go about finding someone. But, I have a point now. I'm gonna dedicate myself to being better. Always praying and asking God for guidance, wisdom, mercy, and help along the way. Working each day to become a better and better person so I can glorify God and, in so doing, become a person better able to love, honor, and obey, my future husband. I don't date. I will court - Though I know it really doesn't matter what you call it. I just love that term. - whenever I am ready and responsible enough to be married. (Although I'll obviously be having to ask alot of people before I'll know that.) I like that girl who wrote that article entitled Don't Kiss Me, I'm right there with her.

...A Quote,.......

It's only when you look at an ant through a magnifying glass on a sunny day that you realise how often they burst into flames. - Harry Hill

(And, no, I don't know who that is.)

And now for a Verse (first things first),...............

Go thou sluggard, to the ant, consider her ways and be wise. Proverbs 6:6

You know it's true.

"Young men behave according to an algebraic formula. When they're together, the quantity of restraint each possesses is inversely proportional to the number of men in the group. Just like Hugh-from-St.John's. He would have been a perfect gentleman had he traveled alone, but as he was with a male friend, his capacity for restraint was divided by half. Had he two more friends present, there would have been a belching contest or some such nonsense." - Spoken by the character Peggy Somerset in 'Catherine's Heart', a book by Lawana Blackwell that I recently read.

The Whole Story

As for the week after Christmas I got to go to a huge rented house and do NOTHING! I read a ton of books, watched some movies, and hung out with my family! Very relaxing. But, I'm happy to be back. :D

I'm baaaaaaaaaaack!

Whew! So, where were we? Ah, yes, the H.-side o' the family cousins. Boy, it's been so long............ OK, here we go. Hurrah for me! Oh and of course you too SJH.We did totally beat MFH and SMD at Scattergories! Though we only got to play 2 rounds and not the full 3 we still beat 'em by 7 points! As for the SillyString ........... well, KDH and I concocted a plan, that, of course, did not go as expected (When do plans, the ornery things?) to get SMD with it. Let me set the scene for you. Close your eyes and picture: Everyone at the condo the cousins were staying at. Now open your eyes or how will you read! It's the last night of their stay. When you enter the condo there is a doorway to the left, leading to the kitchen. So, I hide just inside this doorway armed with my can of SillyString and KDH tries to lure SMD out to the balcony (K. also has SillyStuff).
KDH: Hey, M!
SMD: What?
KDH: Come here! Someone threw a football over the balcony! Come see!
(I know, I know. Weak. But, he was pressed for ideas. Cut him some slack.)
SMD: What?
KDH:Someone threw a football over the balcony! Come see, M!
SMD gets up and walks slowly over. Stops, right before he gets to the kitchen door.
SMD: What? Whatever, K.
He turns around to go back to the couch where pretty much everyone else was watching The Scarlet Pimpernel - Which, by the way, is a good movie you should watch sometime. Not the old,old one. The one with Ian McKellan in it. - anyway, I'm thinkin' what! And I leap out from behind the wall, K. right behind me. And hosin' him down with the SillyBilly. It was totally hilarious. He jumps back and then starts laughing while everyone else turns around and starts laughing at whats going on. KDH and I are already dying of laughter as he trys to steal it from us. Good times.
Eventually however, he wrestles it away from me. Then he takes it up to the tenth floor and empties it up there - claimed it floated all the way across the parking lot before it came down - instead of squirting it at me like I expected him to do . I suppose this is maturity. *smirks* Then again, this is the guy who blew straw wrappers at us while we were in Chick-Fil-A.

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! And a Happy New Year to you all! I'm back from vaca.! There are computers with internet access again! Update soon as I can! ;)
