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.

10 Things I love...

Lovely Miss Valentine tagged me to do this. :D If you want to do it, go ahead; I'm not in the tagging mood.

1. God, and his sending His son to die for my sins.

2. My Family. They are wonderful, I could not ask for better parents or siblings. :)

3. My friends who have been there forever...while others have faded away.

4. Being out of doors, hiking, photographing nature, experiencing the marvelous creation of God.

5. Listening to a good sermon.

6. Playing tennis with my Father. (and others, but it's awesomest with my Dad)

7. Music...listening to it, but especially when I can make it. :) (I'm working on "It's De-Lovely" by Cole Porter on the piano) =D

8. Old things; clothing, vinyls, cars, posters, typewriters, etc. Anything you could find in Grandma's house. ;)

9. Desserts...especially chocolate ones. :)

10. The Blue Angels. (Can you guess what I went to see today?) ;)



(Picture from here)

So anyway. Yeah, you might wonder about the Blue Angel thing. Well, I've always had this odd hidden passion for airplanes. I don't know why, or how it came to be, but I just love to watch them and I've wanted to learn to fly for quite a while now. We live near an airport and Air Force Base, so we get a lot of planes around here. In the past few days the Blue Angels have been practicing and performing. I couldn't go yesterday, but my family and I were able to go today. It. Was. AMAZING. I loved it. LOVED it. The planes are Boeing F/A-18 Hornets (for those of you who it could mean something too...). They can break the sound barrier. Does it get cooler than that? Nope. If they come anywhere near where you live, go watch them. That's a command. Not a suggestion. :-P

Happy Sunday, and rest of the week to you all.

Musings

I see this blog has not been updated in a while... My Father and Sister have abilities to post...but they don't for some reason. This isn't my blog. It is supposedly my family's blog. Father is busy- Sis is...I don't actually know why she doesn't post. But here is my post, for all it's worth.

I have nothing in particular to tell about so I will catch up on some things I haven't done in a while.

Learn your language:
The word: Friend
Definition:
a person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard.
Synonyms: comrade, chum, buddy, pal

Friends. Everyone has a friend. If you think you don't, look to Jesus and read the hymn "What a Friend We Have in Jesus". Nowadays, friends are the people who send you virtual "friend" invites on one of the thousands of social networking sites. One of the reasons I do not have a Facebook is that it completely ruins your social skills to where you have difficulties associating properly with people. Another cause of these bad social skills is texting. I have no cell phone so it is not a problem for me currently. When I do get a phone, I will specifically ask my parents to keep strict rules for texting because it engulfs you without your knowledge. I know multiple people who have their phone with them 24/7. Even when they are with other friends, they still text in front of them. If you think about it, texting in public is like having someone talk to you but another friend walks up and you start talking to the new person while ignoring the other one. And unlike in person, people can be more prone to say things about other people, or things that should never be said even in person. If you text, are you aware of the surrounding world? As Ferris Bueller once wisely said, "
Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.".

Wow, that paragraph drifted off topic a bit. But it didn't really have a topic to begin with, did it?
