philippians 2:5-10

"Have this mind among yourselves,

which is yours in Christ Jesus,

who though he was in the form of God,

did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,

but made himself nothing,

taking the form of a servant,

being born in the likeness of men.

And being found in human form,

he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death,

even death on a cross.

Therefore God has highly exalted him

and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,

so that at the name of Jesus

every knee should bow,

in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

and every tongue confess

that Jesus Christ is Lord,

to the glory of God the Father."

give a hug, do it today!

every day so far

i am currently sitting at got coffee listening to chris tomlin on the ipod and supposedly grading papers for the end of the semester. i was thinking, not about grading, but about my new journal. that's right, i went out last week and bought a thick, black, simple journal for collecting my thoughts and ideas. it has engineer type paper (grid, not lines) and i have written in it every day since january 7th. i know, not that long, but i don't journal much. this year i am going to make it a habit. i already do it for my class at weber, we reflect on the day and what we learned, and i want to do the same thing for my life - reflect on the day and what i learned. so that's my new adventure, tell me one thing you have started or will start this new year to keep you going spiritually. have a great day!


i feel like i am waiting for something in my life to explode. not explode to the point of no return, but i am overwhelmed with the beginning of a new year. i am trying to balance too much, but i know i can give a little on some things so that others can flourish. that is my goal this semester, to give on the things that will not have hurt feelings if i let go a bit. also my spiritual growth is moving up, so that's good, but i usually leave that behind more than i should. that is all, i call it a mini-venting session. now i am done, have a great day.
