Hab 3:1-18; Phil 3:12-21; John 17:1-8
Notes: Habukkuk rehearses the past in his prayer. He remembers times in the past when great physical upheavals occurred as a sign of the LORD acting for His people. He looks at the oppression that Israel is now under, and expects that the LORD will again come to deliver His people.
Outstanding passage: (17-19)
17 Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,

I am planning to be making posts each day during Lent (a time of fasting, prayer and preparation that has been part of the United Methodist tradition since our founding, as we are a branch off of the Anglican church) in response to a site with Scripture readings for each day.
Last night, terrible weather prevented my attending Ash Wednesday Services... Perhaps I should have taken my friends up on the offer to go with them to Mass in the morning. I just feel somehow left out

I 'am not a masochist; yes; sometimes things hurt; and its only a temporary feeling. Honestly; a lot of times I don't realize I have any of my jewelry in. I dont do this for attention; then again; anything out of the mainstream is sending up a neon sign saying look at me; but I really could careless about attention from people.
I don't remember really how I started my journey from being who I was to whom I 'am now. I saw some people with some big jewelery when I was in school; and
my mom and i are at a constant struggle. she knows that she says things to hurt me, but she does them anyways. i still can't be open with her about my relationship with Christ and my baptism. i was saved last march. i haven't been to my church in 2 months. i need to have fellowship with common believers, but i cannot because of her. i have tried to communicate, but it never works. it's up to God now. to work with her, and make her see that i'm not such a bad person.
How this works so I guess this is a test entry.
