I listen to this song for the chorus.....


Not including hell or sin, what are your worst fears?

My top one would most definitely be insects of all kinds, and drowning.

Jesus and Satan were having an on-going argument 
about who was better on the computer. 
They had been going at it for days, and
 God was tired of hearing all the bickering.

Finally fed up, God said, 'THAT'S IT! I have had enough.
I am going to
 set up a test that will run for two hours, and from those
results, I will judge who does the better job.'

So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away.

They moused.

They faxed.

They e-mailed.

They e-mailed with attachments.

They downloaded.

They did spreadsheets!

They wrote reports.

They created labels and cards.

They created charts and graphs.

They did some genealogy reports

They did every job known to man.

Jesus worked with heavenly efficiency and Satan was
faster than hell.

Then, ten minutes before their time was up, lightning
suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, rain poured,
and, of course, the
 power went off.

Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every
curse word known
 in the underworld.

Jesus just sighed..
Finally the electricity came back on, and each of them
 their computers. 
Satan started searching frantically, screaming:

It's gone! It's all GONE! 'I lost everything when the power
went out!'

Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files
from the past two hours of work.

Satan observed this and became irate.

'Wait!' he screamed. 'That's not fair! He cheated!
How come he has all his work and I don't have any?'

God just shrugged and said,

Hey, this is just a quick prayer request...

Today, I was sick with a 103 fever all day...meaning that in addition to being sickly, I had to miss two classes, and a "field trip" of sorts that I've been wanting to go on for many years...If I stay sick tomorrow, I'll have to miss another class, and a party that I've been looking forward to for a while if you guys could just be praying that I would get better soon and to trust the Lord through this, I'd really appreciate it!

Update: I'm on the mend now, and just have a slight residual cough! Thank you so much for praying. It was only a couple of days, and it gave an opportunity for my whole family to catch up with each other, even if by uncomfortable means! Thanks again!

Ok, so Cody and I went to the Linn's to play Wii (an on-going battle between Jo-jo and Cody with Wii boxing), and for me and Jo-jo to make dinner. This post is about how NOT to make a meal, and have it turn out anyways!!

  • Have both people come from play practice or trash pick up (preferably both) so that they are very tired
  • Have a recipe (like Broccoli and Cheddar Soup), that doesn't even call for all the ingredients (like broccoli), so you have to make up amounts
  • Have one person who is already on the brink of histarics and waiting for an opportunity to break out laughing uncontrolably
  • Make plenty of mistakes, some of which could include:
Forget to saute your onions and add the flour, so that the bottom can easily burn
Putting in not enough broccoli
Putting in frozen cheese so that it won't melt all the way, leaving chewy, strange lumps in the soup
Because you have already followed the step about histarics, have that person crack up laughing over nothing while pouring the chicken broth into the pan so that it almost spills on the other person
  • Then serve, and have everyone enjoy the strange, but delicious, meal!!!!
