I’ve had a pretty good last 24 hours. I’m quite content at the moment. Yesterday I was finishing up my photo blog. Although I realise that there’s a problem on the comments page but it’s only visual and it’s not too big, I couldn’t figure out what was causing it so I’ll just wait until I have some kind of brainwave, or until someone else figures it out. I forgot to read over my essay that i’m handing in today so I printed it and put it on a usb key so I can change it while I’m at uni – more on that later.
We were on band at church and on the way there I realised that I was on a bible reading as well. Woops! I got the email remider three weeks ago so I forgot to look at it – ironic! That was okay though because Thorby was really good in getting the service outlines early to us at band so I could see I was on the first reading. I found a sheet that told me what the readings were and I read over it. I actually had alot of time to look and mull over it because we finished band practice quite early. It was a great passage! I really liked it.
Wisdom calls aloud in the street,
she raises her voice in the public squares;
at the head of the noisy streets she cries out,
in the gateways of the city she makes her speech:
“How long will you simple ones love your simple ways?
How long will mockers delight in mockery
and fools hate knowledge?
If you had responded to my rebuke,
I would have poured out my heart to you
and made my thoughts known to you.
But since you rejected me when I called
and no one gave heed when I stretched out my hand,
since you ignored all my advice
and would not accept my rebuke,
I in turn will laugh at your disaster;
I will mock when calamity overtakes you-
when calamity overtakes you like a storm,
when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind,
when distress and trouble overwhelm you.
“Then they will call to me but I will not answer;
they will look for me but will not find me.
Since they hated knowledge
and did not choose to fear the LORD,
since they would not accept my advice
and spurned my rebuke,
they will eat the fruit of their ways
and be filled with the fruit of their schemes.
For the waywardness of the simple will kill them,
and the complacency of fools will destroy them;
but whoever listens to me will live in safety
and be at ease, without fear of harm.”
I like passages like this that just tell it like it is and you have no choice to listen. Although obviously there are those that don’t listen, but like the passage says, they’ll die. I think this passage speaks for itself but if you have no idea what it’s talking about you can leave a comment and I’ll email you.
So church was good. The music went well. I’m tired of playing without an amplifyier though. We have DI (direct input) boxes now, they are really useful but Sturt left to go be student minister at another church and took his amp that we’d been using at church for years with him. So now there is no amplifyer and I am using a foldback. It isn’t loud enough and you can’t adjust the levels so there’s not much bass since the speakers are made for voices. Anyway, I can barely hear myself play. I would buy an amp if I could afford it. Hubby has one but it’s small and for whatever reason, possibly that I have no kind of pre-amp in my guitar, it makes big yucky feedback noises when I plug it into my guitar. There’s not a chance that I could get it loud enough for me to hear myself play.
After church we stopped by the supermarket to grab dinner, then to Hezza’s to give her her birthday present. She invited us to stay to watch Narnia with her and the boys who were on their way. We went home, had dinner and then went back over. The boys are completely silly! They were talking and commenting throughout the whole movie. I have no idea how many times I hit and poked hubby indicating that he shut up! I don’t have a problem with the odd funny call but with six boys in the room, it was a little more than that. Some of the calls were so obvious, even I thought of them but chose not to speak during the movie. Apart from the stupidness and someone making comments about someone else we know that was a good time. I swear, this someone is so harsh about this other person, I know the other person can be annoying and sometimes he isn’t the brightest bulb but these rude comments have been going for about a year now. It’s no wonder this other person finds reasons not to hang out with the boys now. I think someone should get over it because he’s being ungodly, maybe he thinks he is joking and it’s not that bad but I think it’s bad and I think the person he jokes about thinks it’s bad too because he now avoids the whole group.
I also got a birthday present from Hez! It’s a lavander scented candle meant for de-stressing. that’s so cool that she thought about something that was both nice and that might be needed at this stage of my life. I should definitely take a bath with my new bath stuff and light a candle and relax. When to do that is another issue.
I’m a bit excited because I’ve found more blogs by people actually know. Now I have a bloglines folder named ‘friends’ because they’re blogs of people I know in real life. Yay!
I just had a french test that had our two hours class allocated to it. I finished it quite quickly. there’s still 35 minutes scheduled of that class which means I have heaps of time to edit my essay, read some blogs and hopefully read some of 1 Peter, which I started reading last week. I found out about a genetics test this morning that is on tomorrow! Woops! I wish it wasn’t, if it were any other subject I’d be okay but this session of genetics has been pathetic. The trains were bad and I missed lectures. The lectures were boring and I didn’t understand them. So I’m little concerned about that but I can’t do anything about it until I get home so I’ll just have to not worry. It’s bad for your health you know.
