NIPTO, Day 283

Heyyyy all.
Lots has happened since I last blogged! Well... not lots. But enough to make a lengthy "I did this and then that" section. Hah.

So. Yesterday. Went to Urban Vision. Was in the Gym. Ate dinner. Helped Ehne Thau with her homework. Went to ballet. Got my butt (or biceps... No. My butt) kicked by Lauren. Went to Jazz&Modern. Got nice bruises on my knees from modern. Annnnd then came home and went to bed.

Got up this morning, got ready, went to school. Spanish class, study hall, lunch, Mom's class, cleaned up. Went to the bank and the grocery store. Came home. Did school. Watched last week's Survivor. E-mailed  pictures to Kayt's soccer coach for a slideshow. Ate dinner. Finished e-mailing pictures. Watched the end of last week's Survivor that I hadn't gotten to, watched Glee (You should check out this and this from this past week's episode!). And here I am.

Soooooo...... NIPTO? Yeah.
Ecclesiastes 12:1-8

1 Remember your Creator
   in the days of your youth,
before the days of trouble come
   and the years approach when you will say,
   “I find no pleasure in them”— 

Remember who created you. Remember him when you're young, before you have trouble, before you find no pleasure in your life.

2 before the sun and the light
   and the moon and the stars grow dark,
   and the clouds return after the rain; 

Remember God before the sun comes up and before it goes down. Remember him before the clouds return after a rain.

3 when the keepers of the house tremble,
   and the strong men stoop,
when the grinders cease because they are few,
   and those looking through the windows grow dim;
4 when the doors to the street are closed
   and the sound of grinding fades;
when people rise up at the sound of birds,
   but all their songs grow faint; 

Remember God when people tremble, strong men grow weak, and the windows grow dim. When the doors on the street are closed, remember who created you. 

5 when people are afraid of heights
   and of dangers in the streets;
when the almond tree blossoms
   and the grasshopper drags itself along
   and desire no longer is stirred.
Then people go to their eternal home
   and mourners go about the streets.

Remember God when people are afraid and are in danger. Remember who created you when there are beautiful blossoms on the trees. Remember him when animals drag along.
People will eventually go to their eternal homes and those who mourn them will be in the streets. 

 6 Remember him—before the silver cord is severed,
   and the golden bowl is broken;
before the pitcher is shattered at the spring,
   and the wheel broken at the well,
7 and the dust returns to the ground it came from,
   and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

Remember God before the pretty things break and the dust returns to where it came from and the spirit returns to the one who gave it. 

 8 “Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher.
   “Everything is meaningless!"

Joyful, isn't it? Yeah. No. Meaningless. Everything is meaningless. But we need to remember our creator nonetheless.

And now. I'm going to go to bed. And I hope to blog tomorrow afternoon... because I'm going to see THE WIZARD OF OZ tomorrow night!!!!!!!!!!! I'm super pumped. If you couldn't tell by the massive amount of exclamation points that are ^^ up there.
So. I'm going to go to bed so I can get sleep. And get up and get work done!

Hope y'all had a gooooood day :)
