I've been gone for a week, and I'm about to leave for another. After that, I've got more stuff going on, so it's hard to say if I'll be online much for the next...month or two. Meh. Let's just say I won't be reading your blog or responding to comments. I probably won't post, but if I do it'll most likely be during the week coming after this one.
Horizon 2008 was...good. It's always good, but I feel like new stuff is always opening up for me. And by its very nature, that never gets old, does it?
I guess I'm learning to trust more in God. For the longest time, I've kind of tried self subsisting. I acknowledge the source of my (His) strength, but I still kind of tried to do it myself.
I need to stop treating God like a concept and more like...a person. Something that we treat as if it's less real than we are, or something we can dissect, but is just beyond all that. Assigning Him motives and such is silly. I do that. A lot. He doesn't do well with being stuffed in the conceptual box of my mind.
Hopefully with that mindset, I can defeat a few bad habits. Imagine doing something bad, even if it seems small and petty, with God standing right behind you! Not just a spirit that loves me, but a super-personal being that loves me and hates my sin. Makes me think twice before I do something stupid. Yup yup.
By the way...I've always heard "God is Love", but I saw a shirt this week that said "Love is God"...is it just me, or does that make LIFE look different? Maybe it's just my hopeless romanticism. Heh.
Some pretty powerful stuff. Manly men crying. A fateful purchase. God speaks.
I got me a hankerin'!
Forget that junk

I should have done paradigms while I had the chance. There's this guy on Deviant Art who likes asking Great Questions, making philosophical polls, and such. Needless to say, I thrive on the threads he indirectly creates. I was (calmly) discussing if Christians are insecure because of our belief. AFTER the thread ended (peacefully) some guy comes out of nowhere with just a link.
The link lead to the Zeitgeist Movie, which I've seen. I responded, saying that most of the "evidence" the movie put forth against the Bible isn't really evidence, just suspicion and speculation, which of course is understandable because of the age of the book but doesn't really prove anything. Then I brought up a few points about the absurdity of a self creating universe, (mostly the ones I've pointed out here), and left it at that.
OH! I've taken to pasting "Please note that I am not offended, and don't mean to offend. Just wanted to point that out. Thanks." to the end of all my religious comments. It can get repetitive and probably a little obnoxious, but it's a point I want to be very clear. Anyways...
I got off on a side-thread with some guy about the Lock Ness Monster and stuff (again, very peaceful) when the guy comes out of NOWHERE again with...this...BLOCK of incoherent text. I took 9 or 10 minutes trying to figure out what this guy was trying to say before I gave up and asked him to make it something we could discuss and not just his blatantly biased opinion. I'd show you what was said, but I lost the link to the thread...if it comes up in my message box again, I'll show you all.
The moral of the story is that now I DO want to write something with a religious tone to it, but I won't because I think that everyone's patience with me on the matter is kind of low. I'll wait. :P
Yesterday I got on a blow-up raft and got pulled behind a boat on the local lake. It was like tubing, but it used a lot more muscle (OH YEAH!) because it's a lot harder to stay on than an inner tube. So my arms were VERY sore yesterday and today.
Thankfully, the swim meet for today was stormed out. Unfortunately, I wasted more than 2 hours of my day waiting for the silly officials to come to that decision. So. Today has been a mixed bag.
Another post without a title

TWO epic events:
Yesterday, I went to Kendal's house. We ate dinner, watched Untraceable, had a bonfire with S'mores...it was v v v v fun. Her little brother threw gasoline on the fire to get it started, and that was pretty exciting. Nearly as exciting as watching that movie. Very potent message they had. Yup.
Today I was at the pool for 4.5 hours with AJ and the girls*. This was our first real outing since school got out (save the covert operation right after school), and we made the best of it. Papa John's pizza, soda, bratty little girls who make up stupid rules for Crosspool, teasing, cold water, and so forth. I only burned my shoulders, and only a little. Win.
I'll make a post on Paradigms later. It's purely philosophical, not really a lot of religion at all. Which means that everyone except for randomjunk, who doesn't care, should like it. Haha. Until then, my annoying little brother is pushing for me to get off. Good night!
*Keener, Kayla, and SuZZ.
