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'm getting old....: (

'Tis the sad truth. I've always heard elder people saying how life went so fast, but to me life crawled by slower than a slug, but then when I hit 10 or so, life started pressing on the gas. I'm so thankful that there is something to look forward to after this life, that will be greater than anything humanly imaginable. God is good.
Well summer has started, and I'm already halfway through it with not much accomplished (common story, isn't it). I did have the privilege of doing a volleyball camp which was super fun, though my arms and legs hurt like crazy afterward. But as they say, "no pain, no gain". I tried to finish up the reading that needed finishing up, didn't get all of it done, but my wonderful mother gave me a break so now I'm thoroughly enjoying reading Dandelion Fire, the sequel to 100 Cupboards, and both are great books.
I also got the chance to go on a missions trip with my whole family and a group from church which was wonderful. We went to Cherokee, NC to an Indian reservation and we helped at a Senior Center, and a Youth Center, and both were great experiences. We also went to Lancaster, PA for a get together for the students of online classes, so I got to meet some of my classmates, and we had a lot of activities, which barely allowed for time to breath the whole weekend. But I met lots of nice people. :)
Here in SC though, I've just been "chill-axing" as one of my best friends calls it. I got to go to the beach with some friends, which was awesome, I've been playing some tennis in the scorching heat of SC, got to go see the movie Up, which I must say was a masterpiece film, especially when you look at what else is in theaters at the moment. I really want to see Night at the Museum 2, and the Harry Potter movie when it comes out. Yes, I'm a Harry Potter fan, and I find no shame in that. =D
I've been doing a lot of thinking about the goal for my education. There are so many things out there, it gets to be overwhelming! I've settled with being a janitor. KIDDING!
I really have no idea right now, but I don't plan on getting a cubicle job (a job at which I "live" in a cubicle). A lawyer is sounding interesting, but so is architecture, and maybe even some sort of clothing business. I don't know.....
Well, I need to get a shower. I know you were just asking yourself, 'I wonder if shes gonna take a shower....hm....'. Now you know.
I have a joke for you:
What has a bottom on its top?
While you're thinking, I'm gonna introduce you to a reformed Christian rapper, Shai Linne. He's amazing. Buy some of his stuff. And the answer to the joke is, your legs! I know, simply hilarious. :)
Well, I've wasted more than enough of your time, but I can truthfully admit that its not my fault you've been sitting at your computer reading some girls monotonous writing, you chose to do it. Anyway, I'll write later....maybe.....
