Jesus is Born

Luke 1:46-55

46 And Mary said:

β€œMy soul glorifies the Lord
47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
48 for he has been mindful
of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
49 for the Mighty One has done great things for meβ€”
holy is his name.
50 His mercy extends to those who fear him,
from generation to generation.
51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones
but has lifted up the humble.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things
but has sent the rich away empty.
54 He has helped his servant Israel,
remembering to be merciful
55 to Abraham and his descendants forever,
just as he promised our ancestors.”

I have no idea where I would be without God in my life. He has blessed me in so many ways its mind boggling. Sending Christ to die for me was so much more than i ever deserve and is all i really need in life. However God continues to bless me in many other ways and this year has been one of the best years of my life. God is working in my life in exciting ways and i cannot wait to see what he has in store for 2011! Merry Christmas everyone, now get off the computer and go spend time with family and friends!

Vintage Post-Back Packs

The other day i was thinking about all the stuff we carry with us! the stuff we store into our backpacks emotional baggage, thinking we need stuff we really dont need you know. It’s funny God really didnt want us to be down on life or to carry extra stuff we dont need God really just wants us to enjoy life and of course worship and praise Him for every day that we live. Be kind and don’t hate we all make mistakes. Let go of the idea that we need more stuff to be happy and approval from others to be truly happy! God doesnt care how much stuff we have or how cool we are. so why does it matter to us? why must we insist on carrying more weight then we really need to??? Anyway i think you guys are all great and i hope you have an awesome day whenever you read this!

A poorly written post, however I still think a valid point? Ha enjoy the walk down memory lane! Hope your praising God for the days he has blessed you with and are thankful for this time of year! Work hard and finish well! And if your in Grand Forks from the 19-Jan 3 I’ll see you there! πŸ˜‰

Vintage Post-The Life of Dalton Part 1

So a couple of days ago I took all the posts from screamersandgummyworms.blogspot.com that i thought were worth while and saved them to my computer. So every once and awhile I will post them here as we walk down memory lane together! Here my friends is where I think my blog was in it’s prime, thanks to our good friend Dalton!

So by popular demand i now present to you “The Life Of Dalton” Part 1! so we have now been here for 3 weeks and we are getting established! We arrived at Briercrest and dalton was stoked since he was sure that he got first pick on the bed alas there was only one bed left and he was mad! haha i love it when dalton gets mad i find it hilarious! so Dalton got his act together cooled off and then met his room mate Andrew Yee. Andrew offered us all beef jerky which was awesome and Dalton was stoked!!!! i love it when dalton is stoked i find it hilarious. Dalton dubbed (or maybe Jason) Andrew Yee as Yeehaw and we now refer to him as Yeehaw! I then encouraged dalton to meet new people and he had no problem with that……….so long as these new people were guys! im pretty sure dalton actually hasnt met one girl here yet though he has claimed that he has and that he thinks some girl is cute yet no matter where we are in the school he can never point her out and im talking the chapel where the whole student body is or in the cafeteria is where she has to eat since she is a freshmen. that being said we have concluded that Dalton has been making up some girl and that he has actually yet to meet a real girl. dalton has tried out for the college hockey team which was a noble step but found that after the first try out after the goalie started skating faster then him that he was not cut out for briercrest hockey! good try anyway chief. last week a bunch of us guys took a night trip to mcDonalds for some lat night burgers and dalton usually sits in the font with me therefore i hand him the food and drinks. after i do so i go to park we all get out to eat and all we hear is NO NO NO NO AHHHHHH! from within the escape. we rush over and he has single handily dropped 3 drinks and his cell phone as he continues to flail about in the car! we are all dying of laughter and get him out as he is soaked of pop (and dont worry mom and dad it was taken care of and its all good). needless to say dalton is no longer to hold the drinks and if ever in my car has to use a bottle so it doesnt get everywhere since he cant handle drinking pop without spilling! haha what a guy! well on top of all this dalton has also changed his courses about 8 times now and i think has been enrolled in every class briercrest has to offer including ones hes not even eligible to take yet! but he has finally made up his mind and its been going good for him, including his piano skills!!! so far though my favorite Dalton experience has to be watching him play the game “things in a box” where people write down answers to questions throw them in a box and guess who wrote what, for the life of me i dont remember what the question was but daltons answer was “I want love (you) sexy” he wrote you after and put an arrow above it cause he forgot to put in you but he forgot to as well the whole thing was weird and hilarious and we make fun of him all the time hahahaha ah man its good to have Dalton here never a dull moment. anyway stay tuned for next months “The Life Of Dalton” later dayz
