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.

A new blog!

I have marvelous news. As my cousins have been in town, we have pulled old TV show scripts of ours out of the filing cabinet, and decided to remake them. As we made them, we began to fall in love with the idea of making a blog to post our videos on; ergo, we now have a blog. I highly encourage you to follow it, you won't regret it! :)


I hope you like it!

Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas all! I hope it's wonderful!

I must say though, I'm very disappointed that none of you believe in Santa Claus. Oh well. :)

Carol's Corner

Please check out my friends blog when you get the chance. She's hilarious, and awesome, but forgets about her blog sometimes... Anyway, hopefully I can persuade her to post a little more. ;)




Question to consider-

Here is a question that you should answer for me in a comment. Do you believe in Santa Claus? If yes, why? If no, why not? Don't be shy now. :) I won't tell my view until there are at least a few comments. Comment away...


....And to all a good night

Well, as Christmas is only 2 days away, people all over the world are in the last minute rush of the holidays. I, for one, have gotten almost all of my Christmas shopping done, and I am ready to chill out(literally, and non-it's freezing here). My Grandma, Aunt, Uncle, and two cousins are coming down from MI for Christmas tonight, and I am very excited. :) They are marvelous people.
Tomorrow, we are having a Christmas brunch, for our neighbors. Most of our neighbors are retired folk, and are home at Christmas time, so we have hosted a Christmas Eve brunch for a few years now. There is nothing like some good old fashioned Christmas jollification!

Amidst all the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, we must not forget the reason for Christmas; the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus. What an amazing story it is- in fact, go read it yourself.

I will try to post pictures of family or something like that over the holidays-but don't become mad if I don't. ;) So. May God bless you all this season, and have a very, merry Christmas!


On Dasher, on Dancer, on Prancer and Vixen, on Comet, on Cupid, on Donder* and Blitzen!

*FYI his name is really Donder, not Donner. Go look at the book('Twas the Night Before Christmas).

Escusa me

Please excuse the blog's appearance; I am trying to fiddle and create a new look. But I don't have time for one, long, get-it-all-done sitting, so it may look disheveled when you visit. :)


FYI, the title is in Spanish. I do in fact, know how to spell.

God Leads Us Beside Still Waters and ....

There are times when God leads us beside still waters and times when He leads us through the valley of the shadow of death (see Psalm 23). After my recent surgery, I need to make sure I communicate clearly that God doesn't love me more now than He did in the summer of 2008. I just had surgery in November 2009 where God led me beside still waters and my road was easy. In the summer of 2008, I had surgery that was not easy. I had a time in the valley of the shadow of death, but even there He was with me and comforted me and was working out His purposes in my life and in my family. He loves me now as He loved me last year. He is working out His will for me in different ways - some easy and some hard. God abounds in love and faithfulness (Psalm 86:1) towards His children. Are you one of His children? Do you love Him? If you love Him, keep His commands (John 14:15).

Oh the joys of being tagged....

I was tagged by Karis, so here goes:

1) Do you like sugar cookies?

A: Eh, they're ok, I enjoy chocolate better.

2) Do you like a LOT of lights on your Christmas tree, or just a few?
A: Just a few white ones is perfect

3) Do you prefer a real tree, or an artificial tree?
A: I prefer real trees, but we've had fake ones for a few years now...:(

4) What's your favorite Christmas carol?
A:Most of them are wonderful. I don't need to pick a favorite. :)

5) Do you like egg-nog, or boiled custard?
A: What in the world is boiled custard? I do not know, I do like eggnog though. :)

6) Do you want a lot of snow for Christmas, or just enough to sled in?
A: Well, wishing for snow down here is like wishing for your house to turn upside down and nothing gets broken inside of it, but if it were possible, yes i would love snow, but just enough to sled in.

7) What's your favorite part of the Christmas story?
A: That God gave his only son to die for our sins.

8) What's your favorite Christmas movie?
A: Hm. Christmas Vacation, White Christmas or Holiday Inn.

9) If you could spend $1,000,000, what would you buy?
A: well, i'd pay off any dept i owed, then buy an awesome sports car. I don't know if i really would buy the car, and I'll probably never find out. :)

10) What is your favorite name(s) of Jesus?

A: All of em.

And I've decided not to tag anyone....but if you want to tag yourself, feel free to do so.

Butterflies and Bells

I love this picture. Viceroy butterflies are so gorgeous. FYI, this is a Viceroy, not a Monarch. Viceroy's have thinner black vertical stripes on their wings as well as a horizontal line across the bottom. Monarchs have fewer bold black vertical stripes, and no horizontal stripes. This is one of my pet peeves, especially because I see signs for a Monarch Development Inc. but they have a Viceroy on the sign. They obviously didn't do research before creating their logo.

Now this bell is a bell on the column at my Aunt's farm house, and it shows pure Southern taste. The bell, for calling everyone for dinner, and WELCOME on the top, where you know you are not going to be stared down by the barrel of a shotgun. :) You might though, at her farm, if you hope to shoot game on her property, she doesn't want any of that. :) I hope you all have a marvelous day!



Big (adjective regarding size)
Bulky, burly, capacious, chock-ful, whopper, walloping, immense, massive.

Big (adjective regarding importance)
Eminent, momentous, prime, paramount.

Well, not that many alternate words, but the few are commendable. Any word suggestions you have and would like me to do the research on just add it in your comment. ;) Next word will be 'delay'.


Saturday, December 05, 2009


Well, recently (since my discovery of jollification), I have taken an interest in words, and using words that aren't used much. So, every now and then I'll be posting about a certain word, and give some alternate terms you can use. But, if I do this, you all are supposed to actually make use of what you learn, because if you don't, I'm blogging for nothing(and you're wasting you're time).

Today's word:

Fun (adjective)
Amusing, boisterous, convivial, lively, merry, pleasant

Fun (noun)
Buffoonery, escapade, festivity, frolic, gaiety, jocularity, merriment, merrymaking, mirth, tomfoolery
