My Last Post In 2008!

Hey Everyone!
As the Title Says, This is my last post in 2008!
I cannot believe it is almost a 2009! It seems like
yesterday when we began this year and now it's
over! (It's kind of sad, don't you think?)
*
So Many Things Have Happened this year,
but I will only mention a few.
One of the BEST things this year was when my friend
Marissa got to stay with us for 2 weeks! That was so
much fun (especially since we had not seen her in two years).
We went to the Family Conference in Virginia for
the first time in 3 years; I really enjoyed that. I not only
learned a lot but made new friends!
I could mention more things, but it would take too long...
*
Of course there were difficult things this year
(and there will most likely be more in 2009), but overall
I had a wonderful time and I hope you all did too!
*
It is kind of scary going into a new year,
and it is sad that this one is ending. Scary because
we have no idea what 2009 will bring and sad because...
well it just is!
(But why dwell on that since I can't change it, right?)
*
I hope you all have a wonderful New Year!
*
Stephanie

P.S. Sorry about all of the "*".
For some reason when I posted
all my paragraphs were smashing
together so I used those to fix to
fix that. =(

Quotes

I Found these quotes in a book that I am reading.
*
We Christians too often substitute prayer for playing the game. Prayer is good, but when used as a substitute for obedience, it is nothing but a blatant hypocrisy, a despicable Pharisaism...To your knees, man! And to your Bible! Decide at once! Don't hedge! Time flies! Cease you insults to God. Quit consulting flesh and blood. Stop your lame, lying, and cowardly excuses.
- C.T. Studd

*
Have you noticed how much praying for revival has been going on of late - and how little revival has resulted? I believe the problem is that we have been trying to substitute praying for obeying, and it simply will not work. To pray for revival while ignoring the plain precept laid down in Scripture is to waste a lot of words and get nothing for our trouble. Prayer will become effective when we stop using it as a substitute for obedience
.
- A.W. Tozer

Quotes

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot
