Why the name "bLog in Your Own Eye"?

Matthew 7:3 - 5 "Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye."

We should all endeavor to think rightly about ourselves and graciously about one another. We all have specks and logs in our eyes.

I've noticed that I've abandoned my fellow bloggers for te holidays. My apoligies. I've had a busy week, so I haven't had much time. Christmas was fun, I got lots of CD's (The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Tempatations), I got some books, and my family got a Wii which is super fun. I had Christmas with my immediate family, then the same day we went to my aunts house to have Christmas with my extened family on my father's side. Then the day after Christmas, we drove to Michigan, to visit Mother's family. We are kind of hoping for some snow, but none has come yet... I'm still in MI currently, and haven't had much Internet access, which explains my abscense. Hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas, and Lord willing you'll have a great New Year also!

My Christmas Plans...

So, if any of you are wondering what I'm doing for Christmas, I'm first going to be at my house, with my family, and we'll open our personal gifts, the we drive over to an island where my wonderful aunt lives, eat lunch, have present rippings (yes, it can get ugly) eat lunch, walk on the beach, sit around, watch TV(mainly my uncle's do this...;/), and pretty much whatever one feels like. So that will be exciting. The day after Christmas, my fam and I are driving to Michigan, to visit more family and friends. Busy week for me.... I'd love to know what y'all are doing, so start commeting! Merry Christmas!

Going, going, gone!

Wow, its hard to believe that its already Christmas '08. It was weird, how this year zoomed by. It was the first year that did that for me. But I am getting old and feeble (as most of you know....). I've always thought it fun to watch people. See their clothes, the way they walk, they're hair, how they react around other people... But whats even more entertaining and sometimes even saddening, is how much people today have changed Christmas to mean something other than what it was originally meant to be. Which is, of course, the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. If I were an alien from outer space, who had never seend humans before, I definately would rather him not see most of us at Christmas time. Why? Because, on Black Friday, people are so self-centered, that they trampled and killed a salesman opening doors. KILLED! I am not kidding. Most Americans can not get it into their heads, that other people are on the same level of worth that they are. It makes me want to cry. Another reason for the "aliens" not to see us, is becuase with the current economy, some parents are afraid to tell their children about the terrible, falling economy, so they will spend lots of money to get ther kid everything he'she wants, so they won't know. That obviously will lead to debt, and even worse economy. The kids should know; someday they will have to deal with these economic problems, and its so much better to know how they were started by listeneing and paying attention, not by reading a history book to find out. We Christians really need to keep our heads in the right place. There is so much that we could fall to, but we shouldn't. We need God to help us stay strong in our faith, even through the hard times. God, through his love for us, gave us His only son, to die for our sins(John 3:16). Today, read the Christmas story, right from the source. You can never read it too often. The Christmas Story

Modesty Survey!!!!!!

Dear Fellow Bloggers,

TheRebelution.com has launched the results of their massive Modesty Survey! Over 1,600 Christian guys have answered questions on everything from glitter lotion and lip gloss to swimsuits and skirt slits! It's everything girls have ever wanted to ask guys about modesty, but were afraid to ask! For guys, it's really interesting to see what other Christian guys think!

Most importantly, the survey is presented as a resource to help Christian girls (and guys), not a list of legalistic rules, and it is accompanied by the Modesty Survey Petition (which tons of guys have signed) which encourage young women to focus on the heart, not the hemline, to honor their parents, etc.

The results were released on St. Valentine's Day as a gift from 1,600 Christian guys to all Christian girls -- and I can't think of a better one! Now the survey is being endorsed by people like Shaunti Feldhahn ("For Women Only") Nancy Leigh DeMoss (Revive Our Hearts), CJ Mahaney (Sovereign Grace Ministries) and Shannon Ethridge ("Every Woman's Battle")!

Go check it out: http://www.therebelution.com/modestysurvey/

But also make sure you spread the word to all your friends. We want as many Christian girls (and guys) as possible to see this, so forward this email on!

Your (Excited) Friend,
Abster ♥

P.S. Guys, they are still accepting signatures for the Modesty Survey Petition, so this is an opportunity for you to still share your voice on the topic of modesty!
