Lee Bryant

What to write about, that is the question. I ate a banana today, isn't that so exciting? I finally finished reading Come, fill the cup by Lee Bryant. The quote starting chapter four basically describes her life before she was saved:

Yesterday, This Day's Madness did prepare;
Tomorrow's Silence, Triumph, or Despair.
Drink! for you know not whence you come, nor why;
Drink! for you know not why you go, nor where.

The quote at the end of the book described her life after she was saved:

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
"behold, I freely give
The living water; thirsty one,
Stoop down, and drink, and live"

I came to Jesus, and I drank
Of the life-giving stream;
My thirst was quenched, my soul renewed,
And now I live in Him.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
"I am this dark world's Light;
Look unto Me, thy morn shall rise,
And all thy day be bright!"

I looked to Jesus, and I found
In Him my star, my Sun;
And in that light of life I'll walk,
Till traveling days are done.
Horatius Bonar

Almost everybody is playing Monopoly; Josiah made a new game out of it today so they are trying it out. He (Josiah) says it will be more interesting, there are four jobs to do, not one. There is a revenue agent, banker( which includes being a real estate agent), mortgage and loan adviser and the shares consultant. It sounded complex, but it is promised to be interesting, I of course am not playing it unless it proves to be faster that normal.

Nate bought some new headphones, so he wants me to go try them out, I guess. Besides I cant think of anything to write.

Your first sentence is the very reason I don't have a blog. Josiah is.... interesting when it comes to monopoly.

I couldn't think of anything to say. My mind was blank. It was only at 3 something in the morning while Lizzie was puking that I remembered I wanted to write about how the beginning to one of snoop dog's songs gave me shivers and was creepy.

Tiny Tim said...

sry um what is snoop dog songs.

Tiny Tim said...

I take it you don't know what to write today either.

sarah said...

no, I had to do school, I am not aloud on the internet until my school is done. I'll write about snoop dog later.

sarah said...

oh, its snoop dogg

Tiny Tim said...

Nice picture. ewoks are the greats thought up creature ever.

"aloud" = "out loud, as in saying something so that everyone can hear you"

"allowed" = "with permission, as in you are allowed, or have my permission, to be on the internet if you did something out of every subject today."

sarah said...

well, it didn't show up on spell check!

Tiny Tim said...

I didn't notice the spelling but i'm used to just seeing the text and applying the word to the sentence.

Cathy said...

That's because "aloud" is a spelled-right word. You need grammar check to pick up on the misuse of homonyms.

I have trouble with le or el at the end of words. puzzle or puzzel. Then there is ea or ee in words. I wrote "sweatheart" once to Jon and he thought that was hilarious. I wasn't calling him that. I was talking about the banquet in February. Years ago.

Tiny Tim said...

Cathy (um can I call you that) To me it does not matter how its spelled between friends, in the work force spelling is a alot.

Cathy said...

Tiny Tim, my grandpa used to say that he didn't care what people called him as long as they didn't call him late for dinner. You might get "the look" if you called me Cathy to my face, though.

And you might notice that I only get on Sarah for her spelling, not her grammar or her sentence structure or her lack of paragraph breaks. That's because spelling has always been a "thing" for me. I loved spelling in school, and almost always got 100s on my tests. Somehow I failed in passing a love of proper spelling on to my children....

By the way, Tiny Tim, "a lot" is two words. :)

Tiny Tim said...

well.... a lot is a lot to say sooooo I like to keep it one word. and other times I just don't know if its one word or two.
