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.

Writing this, is a girl who got a job, and has not had any time whatsoever for blogging.

Dear Blog,

I apologize. I have been working quite a bit lately. Last Monday evening, my Father sent me an email saying that his engineering firm had some work for me to do. Instead of becoming happily excited, I started stressing out. But God helped me, and I was able to sleep that night. The next morning, I went to work. They had me answering the telephone, and printing out pictures for a book or index of some Machine Control Centers (MCCs). The MCCs are very big, so I've done lots of printing, but I've also been putting the pictures I have printed out into plastic sheet protectors, and binders. It isn't the most fun job in the world, but I am thankful I have one and am getting paid well for it. My Dad has been a wonderful encouragement to me. So these past few days, I have been working till 5 o'clock or so, then coming home absolutely very tired. The company though, is moving to a new, renovated historic building this week to be their office, and I am glad I get to help them move, and Lord-willing work a bit in the new office before school starts up again. It's all very exciting. 

The people I work with, (I guess I could say my co-workers, it's just strange because they're all at least 10 years older than I am) are helpful, and friendly most of the time. :) 

OK, the past two paragraphs were written yesterday, but seeing I've been so busy, I could not finish them till now. Nothing much has changed though, so I'll keep it as it is. I would ask for you to pray for me as I finish up my project and that it will be done to my bosses satisfaction, and also for the whole company as we move tomorrow and Thursday. Thank you so much! I will write when I have time, but I'm not sure when that will be.

This morning, I drove my family (yes, I'm driving now, a little scary, but fun) to a farm that had u-pick blueberries. We went in the morning, because down south, if you are out in mid-day, you will most definitely start sweating the moment you walk outside. It was not as hot as we were thinking, but still hot. Once we got there, we got our baskets and went to the trees/bushes that we hoped were untouched. We ended up picking about 3 and a half gallons of blueberries in under an hour. So now, we have the baskets on our counter, waiting for someone to clean the berries, eat them and enjoy them. My mother has hopes of giving some to friends, and making jam with them.

Independence Day

Yesterday, the 4th of July, was America's Independence Day. To America, that means hot dogs, hamburgers, ice cream, soda and fireworks. To some Americans, it represents the day our nation broke off from England and became it's own country. We should thank God for our freedom, and America, but ask Him that America will become a godly nation.

Last night, we packed up my Dad's truck and headed over to the park to see the fireworks. In Charleston, we do fireworks over the water, so these were over the Cooper River. They do them on and island, but traffic gets so bad afterwords. So now we just go to the park to see some. :)

My camera, as I discovered last night, takes very nice pictures of fireworks, so I thought I'd share some with you.

Age with love

While we were in Tennessee, at the campground we stayed at, there was a lodge. A 'lodge' as in, where you can hang out, chat, and do other things in a much bigger space than your cabin. In this lodge, there was a piano. Not just any piano; this piano has been loved so much, and you can see it.

We are loved. Can others see it?

I love old pianos, but when you come across one that has been this loved, you can't help but to stop and play it, knowing that it has made many a happy face in ages past.
