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.

Birthdays, dancing, and lots of reading

Sorry that I haven't posted in forever.... I've been busy, and tired. Lets see where to start; well Thursday was my birthday, and I'm 14 now. :) I got a new digital camera, and I must say that it is a pretty darn nice camera. :-D I also got some candy, and Napoleon Dynamite, which is one of my all-time favorite movies. So I had a great birthday. Friday, I had a piano recital, and I am not a fan of piano recitals at all. Moving on, Friday night we (my fam. and i) went to a Contra Dance thing that was in our neighborhood, and that was an interesting, yet really fun experience. You get to dance with pretty much everyone there (usually its pleasant, sometimes not so much....) but that was fun, and I got asked to dance by this guy who was nice, and knew how to dance which helped me out since I didn't. So by the time that dance was over, I was doin' pretty good, but I learned that when you're spinning, you need to look your partner in the eye, so you don't get dizzy(which could get a little awkward). Anyway, i found out theres a Contra Dance club that meets in our neighborhood, on a few Friday nights a month, so my fam is thinkin' we should go back sometime. :-D Saturday, we did some yard work, watched The Waltons (a really awesome old show), ate food, etc..... Sunday(today), I went to church, and after church we had a lunch to raise money for the missions trip that we are going on in the summer to Cherokee, NC, which I think is gonna be awesome! Anyway, i need to go, and read, because i don't want to flunk my classes...And, I have testing Mon. Tues. and Wed., so that should be exciting (nah, jk). I'll try to post when I get the chance to, but ya know, my life is moving at the speed of light right now (well, it feels like it).......;-)
