Screwtape Letters

"Here are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors and hail a materialist or a magician with the same delight." - Screwtape Letters by CS Lewis

I am reading the Screwtape letters with Shannon for our Bible study time. This past week we talked about how real the devil and demons are. So far, this book has made it clearer all sorts of the things the devil uses to get into our minds and turn them from God. The annoyances of others, praying for someone's "soul" and distractions during church. There is no way for us to overcome the devil without Christ, so we need to be constantly asking Him to protect us from evil.

I've come to realize that my last kiss: wasn't really sincere coming from Daniel.

I am listening to: the silence of my house before anyone else wakes up.

I talk: and I usually hope people will listen.

I love: people who don't always love me back.

My best friend: won't answer her phone when I try to call her.

Number six is: the evil number. (don't quote me on that)

I hate it when people: use something that I'm struggling with against me.

Love is: real.

Marriage: is something for the future.

Somewhere, someone: is being productive.

I'll always: be me.

I have a secret crush: but you aren't allowed to know.

The last time I cried was because: writing papers is incredibly depressing.

My cell phone: has a name, it is Horatio.

When I wake up in the morning: I make myself a hot cup of coffee.

Before I go to bed: I usually talk on the phone.

Right now I am thinking about: all the thinks I have to accomplish today.

Babies are: beautiful, but loud.

I go on MySpace: but tend to become annoyed.

Today I: slept until eight.

Tonight I will: watch a German movie. I don't speak German.

Tomorrow I will: attend church.

I really want to be: truly alive.

Someone who will most likely repost this is: someone who finds it amusing.

"I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny, old attics; even if they dress in rags; even if they aren't pretty, or smart, or young. They're still princesses. All of us. Didn't you father ever tell you that? Didn't he?"

Flat Tire

Today on my way to Marian I got my first flat tire. I was about halfway there and my car started shaking and making loud noises that were not normal. For those of you who know about my car, it already has some issues with the engine and it is relatively loud. By the time I pulled into Marian I was worried because I hoped driving with a flat tire wouldn't hurt my car. I called my Mom right before I went into class, asking if she could call my Dad and ask him to change it for me. Thankfully, when I came out of class, my Dad had put the spare on and left me a message saying that it was okay to drive it. I made it on time to my other class on the other side of campus and my ride home was uneventful. After I got home, my dad instructed me in how to change a tire so next time I can do it myself. ;-)

... among other things.

So, I'm really in need of an update. I'm also in need of a better dedication to blogger, something that I want, but I tend not to have because I don't think I have anything exciting enough to write about. But, my mom always says that I shouldn't post about how I have nothing to post about, that doesn't help anything.

A lot has happened since I posted last. It is now 2007, hopefully the best year of my life so far. I was able to attend the 2006 CYPU Winter Conference in Lafayette and I enjoyed it throughly, Rutledge Ethridge is an amazing speaker and what he said was challenging and applicable. World view started last Friday, Chemistry and Geometry started this past Monday and I started my first classes at Marian College today. Everything is going well so far.

I have a couple prayer requests before I end the post. First, that I wouldn't get too swamped this semester since most of my classes are relatively hard, that I would make swimming a higher priority instead of just going when I feel like it and that my focus would be on God throughout everything, that I would turn to him first for help instead of myself!

- That's definitely something I have to remember this semester. ;-)
