We're coming to break the silence...

If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as it's own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: No servant is greater than his master. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teachings, they will obey yours also.

John 15:18-20

Woot. I just typed that from memory. I think it's right even. Score! Tonight I have to recite that for small group. I think I can do it. It's easier to type than to say though.

I forgot about guitar lesson this morning and didn't show up. I feel bad. But not a lot, because they've not been there twice. Pam (little Ben's mom) was totally fine with it, too. She was just like, eh, it's summer, that happens. So really, I don't feel bad anymore.

I'm making some amazing oatmeal-chocolate-chip cookies for small group. Yum. The dough is fantastic. I can't keep eating it though. Then there will be nothing to bake.

Today I bought two bags of candy. One of them I will eat over the course of the next three days. The other one I will bring with me to the youth trip. That trip is going to be a blast. I am really excited. I can't wait!

Cookies need to come out of the oven. BRB.

Back. They look awesome.

*sniffs hair* I smell good. Do all girls sniff their hair after they've washed it and it's dried?

Stellar Kart is on. I like Stellar Kart. They're a silly punk rock band. I dance sillily to them. I think sillily is totally made up. That's pretty amazing.

I should go finish the cookies now.

  1. Oh, I'm behind!

    Wow. That's impressive. I once had three chapters of James memorized, but I've since forgotten it, mostly.

    Ouch, that's bad. But if they didn't care, you do right to not care either.

    Hmm. Do you think I could impersonate someone in your small group and partake of the bounty of your kitchen?

    I didn't buy any candy, today, but I did purchase twenty fluid ounces of Vanilla Coke.

    You know, I don't know, but I'm sure they should, in order to enjoy life as much as possible.


    I really don't like Stellar Kart very much.

  2. I smell my hair sometimes. If it smells especially good.
    And I don't like Stellar Kart either. But I do like cookies... *whistles*

    You're going to be here in 29 days! [/reminding]
