Two

I am not chewing on caffeinated gum so this post should be better than last night.

I wonder if people can see Jesus through me, or am I so tainted by this world that they cant. I want people to see less of me and more of Him, I to be a candle on a hill not a candle under a basket. Sometimes I think that I am better at going along with the majority than making a stand, its just so easy to go along with every body else and its lots simpler, but its not right.

I am painting in my room; for some reason I cant leave the walls alone for more than a few months until I need to do something. Today I painted the back of my door with Lunenburg Blue and then I am going to put white dots on it. There is one problem with my room, it is on the side of the house where there isn't a lot of sun and since the walls are blue and white it always seems cold in there. In summer thats not bad, but in winter it gets too much sometimes, accept at night. At night the heat seems to crank up and you start sweating.

We changed the living room around again, so the computer is on the other side of the room now instead of next to the door. Now, if I have to stay up later righting the light wont bother people who are sleeping. As I am writing this my younger siblings are bugging me. John climbs under the desk, Timmy is looking for books and pinching and biting my arm, and Elizabeth wants to write something. Just think, in another year and a half or so I'll have another brother over here walking around and saying "RarahRarahRarahRarahRarahRarahRarahRarahRarah. . . " And then I say WHAT!! And He will say with a little grin, "nuyin". John says it is time for me to get off so that he can watch Bob and he keeps pressing the esc key. But however annoying little siblings (and my kitty who jumps on keyboards) may be, I don't think I could live without them. Now Josiah is over here telling me to get off so that they can all watch a movie.

sounds like your having a blast. and sarah you don't say much(in person) on what you believe. but on your blog and in writing I can see it. one of my moms favorite songs is "I saw Jesus in You" from patch the pirate.

This is something you'll think about a lot more as you get older. The real swimming against the current time comes when you're about 20. That's when you have to face adults, and live out your decision to stand and live for God. I'm glad you're taking the time to do this now, to really know why you believe what you believe, and getting the foundation to stick to it. It's all very much worth it though. This world thinks we live such miserable lives because they can make fun of us and call us "weird". But we are acting out the image of our father! We are like Christ! He said that the world hates us because they hate him. So in effect, they make fun of us because we are the children of God. Who's really the weird ones?

Did you read the "posted by..." at the end of your posts recently? Doesn't make any sense.

What does the title "Two" have to do with your post?

Its German, look it up at http://babelfish.altavista.com/
And the title these days have nothing to do with my posts, I am not the greatest at titles.

Hey Christy, So I have something to look forward to, eh:) My neighbors think my family is so strange but so far the only making fun of that they have done is use all the swear words they can think of in one sentence when they talk to me, and they do it just to get a reaction from me. But yeah, I think they are weird:)
