right and wrong



No man has power over the wind to contain it; so no one has the power over the day of his death. Ecclesiastes 8:8. This verse really stuck out to me today. In school the topic of assisted suicide and the death sentence keep coming up. In every situation I've been asked my opinion. I believe that since God has given us life, he is the only one who can take it away. He's got plans for each and every person for every day of their life until he's ready to take it away. While being asked my opinion by unbelievers and those who have different beliefs as I do, I wish I had this verse stored away in my mind so I could have evidence of what I stand on. The good thing is, I know have it so when someone asks my opinion about this serious and scary topic, I'll have my defense.

I backed my pictures and got them ready to send off for the auction in Pullman. Laurel and I are each sending a couple prints of some of our photos to an art auction. All of the proceeds are going to help eight girls go through school in Nepal. I think it's amazing how God has given us talents that can help other people to live better lives. It just reminds me of how unique and special he has made you and me. Trying to be like someone else is a waste of who you are.

I have to see Trevor Hall in concert before I die... I think I'm in love with him.

The evening was filled with Karli and I getting dominated in board games by Kevin and Noah. First we lost Taboo, then Noah won Clue, then Kevin won Egyptian Rat Race. It was great spending time with friends who I don't get to see very often. Here's a little hint if you ever plan on playing board games with Noah... he likes to cheat! ;) so watch out!

A quote I like to live by: Comparing our lives to others is fruitless. We have no idea what journey their on.
