Far Far.. ;) & Ethan's baptism

I am officially done with all my spring 09 classes!!!! :-)  Very excited about that..I almost don't know what to do with myself .... I start summer classes next week , but it will be nice having a little break. I definately have reading high up on the list as things to do!! I just keep finding more and more books that I want to read. Its wonderful actually. I used to dread reading..but thats only because I didn't want to be reading boring textbooks or things I had no interest in. Now, I really enjoy it.

My friend liz told me about this song..she thought I might like it and guess what.... I do. And it is definately SHARE worthy.

 I needed to post this version on my blog because it is so very me..and it's an acoustic version which I love. Some of the lyrics are wonderful and I think if I was a singer/songwriter.. I would probobly have music somewhat  close to Yael Naim.

~~~~everyday she writes words and more words just to spit out the thoughts that keep floating inside and she's strong when the dreams come cos' they take her, cover her, they are all over the reality looks far now, but don't go

How can you stay outside? there's a beautiful mess inside how can you stay outside? there's a beautiful mess inside

from time to time there are colors and shapes dazzling her eyes, tickling her hands they invent her a new world with oil skies and aquarelle rivers but don't you run away already please don't go oh oh   Just look at yourself now deep inside deeper than you ever dared deeper than you ever dared~~~~~

I think the verse I love most is:

 from time to time there are colors and shapes dazzling her eyes, tickling her hands they invent her a new world with oil skies and aquarelle rivers but don't you run away already please don't go oh oh

If you don't recognize her voice Yael Naim is also the singer of  the popular song "New Soul" You know the song!

~~I'm a young soul In this very strange world Hoping I could learn a bit bout what is true and fake But why all this hate? Try to communicate Finding trust and love is not always easy to make~~~

Book: CRAZY LOVE
I really think this book would be benefitial for everyone to read. It really puts things into perspective and get's you thinking about you're own life. The chapter I just finished...chapter 4 asks a lot of good questions followed up by scriptures.
The points I'd like to share.. are:
1. Do you love others but do not seek to love others as much as you love yourself. Is your love of others typically focused on those who love you in return? Like....family friends and other people you already know and connect with. Is your love highly conditional and very selective?
**Most of it find us easy to love others if it is people we know..friends, family, boyfriend/girlfriend..etc. but, God's word says..Love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you.
"Then Jesus said to his host, " when you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or relatives, or your rich neigbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous" (Luke 14:12-14)
point 2: Do you think about life on earth much more than eternity in heaven? I like what C.S Lewis wrote: If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next.
"Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things" (col. 3:2)
FYI: I do not say any of these things to tell people how to be..or accuse anyone. Everything I write comes directly from things that really touch me..... This is MY BLOG..the words I write are the things that inspire me and things I want to share with you.
Have a wonderful Tuesday!  :)
LOVE LO
