Immanuel

Unashamed of Jesus

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14

God sent us a sign, what is the sign that the birth of Jesus Christ has given us? The sign of Christ is of hope, peace, and victory. Through a lowly baby in the manger, God has defeated Satan. A King given to us in a manger, who would have ever predicted this? But God told us this would happen 700 years before it did, and he fulfilled his promise.

The Son of God could only come through a Virgin because he is holy. Our Lord never sinned yet he came to die for our sins. He is the only one who could save us because we are not able to save ourselves. The only begotten Son of God was delivered to us …

Quit Social Media to Make Better Art

True, social media does affect your concentration span.

The Incompetent Writer

hurry

I’ve been ruminating the last few days on this Cal Newport essay. He advises every creative person to get off social media, arguing that posting clever things creates nothing of real value and damages the mind’s ability to focus, to concentrate.

I’ve never had a social media account…

In a recent New York magazine essay, Andrew Sullivan recalled when he started to feel obligated to update his blog every half-hour or so. It seemed as if everyone with a Facebook account and a smartphone now felt pressured to run their own high-stress, one-person media operation, and “the once-unimaginable pace of the professional blogger was now the default for everyone,” he wrote.

I think this behavior is misguided. In a capitalist economy, the market rewards things that are rare and valuable. Social media use is decidedly not rare or valuable. Any 16-year-old with a smartphone can invent a hashtag or…

Love does not seek its own 1 Corinthians 13:5 Lesson 6

emotionalpeace

1 Corinthians 13: 5(NKJV) does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;

1 Corinthians 13:5 (NIV) It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

1 Corinthians 13:5 (ESV) or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;

1 Corinthians 13:5 (NLT)  or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.

Seeking, insisting, or demanding your own way is not love. Even God who created us does not demand. He has given us commands, instructions, and laws, but gives us free will to choose what we will and will not do. The results of our choices and how they impact our lives and the lives we touch are our…

The Bible Through the Ages

This is remarkable.

Musings of an introvert

The voice of the swallow speaks and says:

“The land has brightened-What is thy road?”

Though shalt not,O bird, disturb me!

I have found my brother in his bed,

and my heart is still more glad,

[When he] said to me: ” I shall not go far off.

My hand is in thy hand. I shall stroll about,

And I shall be with thee in every pleasant place.”

He makes me the foremost of maidens:

He injures not my heart.

Egyptian love poem.

It’s Pot Luck When You Move Into A Unit

Libby Sommer, Author

brown apartment block with faceted windowsA nice quiet weekend? the woman downstairs said.  What do you mean? I said, through the open back door, a bag of rubbish in each hand.  She smoothed her ironing on the board and said, They weren’t around over the weekend—with the baby.  She looked happy.  I’m lucky living on the top floor, I said.  She nodded towards the other side of the building.  Jim isn’t so luckyhe’s got the woman upstairs, she said, When he plays the piano and she thumps on the floor.   She put the iron back on its stand.  She’s heavy-footed, that woman.  Bang, bang, bang.   I hear her coming down the stairs every morning at six, and the slam of the front door. 

That night the wind knocked my vase off the window ledge.  I lay awake wondering if the noise of the smash had woken up the people underneath—the ones…

The ultimate guide to the world of pretty girls!

Exactly.

GirlandWorld!

Well yes! You are right it’s about all the pretty girls in the world. I know it’s so unlikely to relate sympathy or empathy words to those beautiful short skirt cladding pixie cut girls but trust me they are human too not exactly a blood sucking aristocratic vamp like you think.. Like they are seriously assumed to be associated with some secret satanic cult whose only job is to bash books and specs holding poor nerd’s apart from their full time job of trapping rich and successful guys. All thanks to movies like ‘Mean Girls’ , ‘Easy A’, ‘Clueless ‘ and so on (I know! I know! These are all mass hits.) So, I just thought that plastic(assumed! Hah!) also deserve a chance.
Being skinny and flawless takes dealing with lot of rumors and perceptions. People would talk about you all the time. There are only two types of girls…
