NIPTO, Day 164

Oh my. I can officially say I'm sick... not just "I think I'm getting sick." Because I really feel it. My sinuses are bad. But I'm living. And surviving. And I'm actually able to do stuff. But my nose is stuffy and my throat still hurts.

I'm watching So You Think You Can Dance right now. These dancers are pretty fantastic. (Although someone else got hurt this week... It's kind of been crazy. 3 weeks straight someone different has gotten hurt.)
Also, Adam Shankman cracks me up. 'Nuff said.

Today has been a crazy day weather wise... it was sunny and hot... then it rained. Then it was sunny... and then it was sunny and RAINING. It's been great. There was a little bit of a rainbow. And now the sunset is pretty.

Pretty clouds...

I thought Katie would like the pink :)

Innnnn other news: I start driving school on Monday! Bright and early at 8 o'clock.
And I listened to most of Tammy Smith's breakout session (Honest Freedom: Living Christ's amazing victory in the face of our issues, patterns, and past.) from IGNITE 2009. It's awesome. She is so funny. And if you have an extra hour and a bit (20ish minutes?) (or a long drive somewhere!) I would definitely suggest listening to her breakout session (and some of the others too!) You can find them all here :)

That's all in other news.


Acts 7:54-60
54When they heard this, they were furious and gnashed their teeth at him.

When they heard "this," this being the story he just told them and him basically insulting all of them, they were very angry... and they ga-nashed their teeth. That seems... really threatening. Not.

55But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.

What on earth?!? This guy has people gnashing their teeth at him, and he is so full of the Holy Spirit that he looks up to heaven and sees the glory of God and sees JESUS sitting at his right hand. Uhm... That's pretty fabulous.

56"Look," he said, "I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God."

 57At this they covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him,58dragged him out of the city and began to stone him. Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul.

Okay. So he's like "DUDES. Look. I see heaven. It's opened up and I can see the Son of Man standing next to God." They apparently didn't like this and so they covered their ears and yelled a lot. (LALALALALALALA I cant' hear you!!! ... That's what I picture.)
So they drag him out of the city and start to stone him. All the while there's a man named Saul who's witnessing the entire thing. And the guys all put their clothes by him so he can "guard."

 59While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." 60Then he fell on his knees and cried out, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them." When he had said this, he fell asleep.

While they were stoning him Stephen was praying. And he prayed some amazing and tough stuff. He asked that God wouldn't hold this sin against those who were stoning him... I don't think that's what I'd be praying if someone happened to be stoning me. Just sayin'. But it's pretty amazing.

Okay. Sooooo Dad was talking tonight about Brick... annd he has to be my favorite character on The Middle. And this is one of the things we've "picked up" from him. So funny (when done at the most random times!).

Hope you had a good evening and such!
