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.

Not for people afraid of bugs

This is a picture (I took) of a very fascinating bug that we saw at a park. I don't know what kind it is, but doesn't it just look awesome?

St. Augustine

I've been reading St. Augustine's Confessions for one of my classes, and I have discovered what a wonderful book it is (at least up till Book X, I didn't read beyond that). If you have not read it, you need to read it ASAP. It is fairly lengthy, but it is clear and understandable. It truly is amazing how God works in us and brings us to Himself, and this is a good story with a clear before and after pictures. And while I'm on the subject, I'll give you a good quote by St. Augustine.

"For Thou hast commanded that an irregulated should be its own punishment." ~St. Augustine

And so it begins

We're officially jumping into the complicated process of packing and moving. We're planning to move on Saturday, but we're not sure whether or not we can do it. :) Lord willing we'll get everything packed and ready to move down the street (yep, down the street) by Saturday. Prayers would be especially appreciated! We have lots of stuff to pack-

The Problem of Sin

I have recently been reading St. Augustines Confessions for school, and he talks in it about whether sin is a substance and how and why things become corrupted. Anyway, my teacher gave us in intersting link to a video regarding the Problem of Sin. Enjoy-
