There must be toros in the atmosphere.

Good morning starshine! The earth says hello!

I naturally woke up at 8:30 today to a strange chilliness that I haven't felt in half a year. Gosh, its cold! My semi-dependable friend weather.com said its 54 degrees F this morning in St. Louis. I demand my warm weather back.

In the meantime, I need to rummage through my storage to find my wool blanket and hoodies. Brr.

Giving it up

This morning I had breakfast with a friend who was saying how she wasn't a morning person. "Joy, I wake up hating the world. But I've learned that once I find myself complaining or angry I lift those up to God and repent right when it happens."

It's so simple. Yet, I realize that I haven't been doing this. Instead, I've been harboring my bitterness and frustration with people for a few days before I address the problem. Perhaps if I take her advice my heart would be in a better condition.

Lord, I'm sick of studying and want to be with people right now. Help me to do things well where I am right now and to focus on where you've placed me at the moment.

Daily musings on life...

Spontaneously, I've decided to switch over from photoblog.com to here. Spontaneous like how I became a vegetarian...

Anyway, we were going over Romans 1-3 today at New City and three quotes from pastor Barry stick out to me that I want to share.

"The main way God pours out his wrath on people is giving people over into their own sin along with all the destruction that comes with it."

"Depression is a very rational reaction to the destruction of sin in the world."

"What hope do we have in great darkness? Righteousness is coming."
