I know I said I was going to sleep but no. I got the game temple run and now thanks to Angie I’m addicted. Anyways, so this guy is running from the temple and you make him jump and slide and move, but the whole time he’s running. I was watching him run and I started to feel so bad for him. He’s running as fast as little legs can carry him and then I start to get tired for him because I feel like I’m in track again and I know how running that fast feels. I need sleep. Goodnight.
It’s only 1 AM :) I’m such a loserrrrrrrrrrrr. Getting hungry. GREAT. I can’t eat any solid food until about Friday. And any food or liquid whatsoever until about 2 or 3 pm tomorrow. I’d like to visit the hamptons someday. And buy a beach house on the east coast, most likely North Carolina. I’m glad the Lakers finally won today. Should’ve won Sunday too, but whatever. I think my family is pretty close to figuring out what house we’re gonna buy. I really don’t want to start packing, but my mom keeps insisting we start doing so. I hate packing. But the thing I hate more than packing is unpacking!!! How is this gonna work? I’ve moved about 4 times already so I’ll be fine, but I just get so lazy when it comes to this stuff. I hope my dogs like our new house. I hope we find one soon. I hope my cheeks aren’t too swollen after tomorrow too!
Just finished watching Something Borrowed. Really liked the movie:) Pretty good, but crappy ending. Anyway this is the fourth night in a row that I’m not tired. I’ve been trying to wake up early to fix it, but that didn’t happen. Tomorrow … or later on, I get my wisdom teeth out. I’m just looking forward to bettering my teeth, but the thought of being put to sleep kinda freaks me out. Hopefully my recuperation is quick as well so I don’t have a crappy New Year’s Eve.
Merry Christmas:) This weekend has been pretty great. I was able to spend lots of time with both of my families and was fortunate enough to receive a few gifts. I love seeing the joy on everyone’s face. I feel like this year was very successful because many seemed to have maintained a true Christmas spirit filled with prayer and praise. I pray that people keep it up past the Christmas season. I really hope everyone had an amazing Christmas with all of their loved ones. Goodnight and God bless.
“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ‘till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”
Our Church’s devotion to Mary, the Mother of God, has not always been understood, even among Christians. Some regard it as excessive piety. Others think it is theologically inappropriate — an abuse of the worship that is due to God alone. Some dismiss our Marian devotion as a distraction from the real work of Christianity, which they see as activism (the so-called social Gospel).
We Catholics disagree. We love Mary as one of us — our sister and our mother. We ask her to intercede for us to her Son. We listen carefully to her words in Sacred Scripture. We strive to imitate her and to follow the advice she gave to the servants at the wedding feast in Cana: “Do whatever He tells you” (John 2:5).
"Stand therefore, and fasten the belt of truth around your waist, and put on the breastplate of righteousness. As shoes for your feet put on whatever will make you ready to proclaim the gospel of peace. With all of these, take the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."
“The real thing about Tim Tebow is that he’s a genuine person, a genuine man of faith and he’s very proud of it. Everyone’s called to use their talents the best way they can, and he’s certainly doing that in a dramatic way that seems to inspire lots of others.”—Bishop Walker Nickless (Sioux City)
But I mean actually blog. When someone just talks about what’s on their mind or ramble on about things only they understand. I like reading it. It’s entertaining and a good break from all of the other millions of “blog” posts. I mean sure pictures can describe people too. And funny gifs are always welcome. But it’s just nice to know there’s more to people than just pictures of what they like. It’s nice to see creativity and intellect and opinion of any sort. That’s what a blog is intended to be. A place to let your thoughts roam and your experiences to be shared. Goodnight!
“What gift do you give a God who has everything? No doubt about it, God is hard to shop for at Christmas time. Maybe that’s why he gets overlooked on many a list.
First of all, God doesn’t need anything. There isn’t anything he’s run out of, or hasn’t seen in the stores, or would be surprised by. And if God has a wish list, you and I haven’t seen it.
Or have we? Sometimes the gifts people give provide a clue to what they would like to receive. After all, it was God who gave the first Christmas gift, two thousand years ago. He wrapped his divine son in flesh and blood like ours and gave him to all of us. […]
Surely, God’s gift to us at Christmas provides the best hint about what to give him in return. In giving Jesus God gave us himself, and that is what God wants us to give him – ourselves. Your self is the only gift God will not have if you do not give it to him.”—Archbishop George Niederauer (San Francisco)
