A Few Facts and a Few Funny Bumper Stickers

FACTS:
~ our co-rec team lost again tonight. my mantra is coming back to haunt me - the point of volleyball is to learn to laugh at yourself.
~ my paper is in.
~ it is drop-dead gorgeous out these days, which is surprising since it's NOVEMBER and still in the 70s. in orlando i'd expect this; in north carolina, i'm more than a little bit like "whoa."
~ to me, october 31 will always mean reformation day.
~ if i am ever invited to an actual "halloween party," i want to go as the 95 theses.
~ i need to finish my app. for covenant ASAP.

FUNNY BUMPERSTICKERS:

NEW HYMN
haha, tricked you! there actually is real substance in this post!
we sang this hymn for the first time last night at RUF. the only question about it i have is why it's set at night...
beautiful, scandalous night
go on up to the mountain of mercy
to the crimson perpetual tide
kneel down by the shore, be thirsty no more
go under a be purified

follow Christ to the holy mountain
sinner sorry and wrecked by the fall
be cleansed heart and soul, from the fountain that flows
redeemed us from sin once for all

at that wonderful, tragic, mysterious tree
on that beautiful, scandalous night, you and me
were atoned by His blood and forever washed white
on that beautiful, scandalous night

on the hillside you will be delivered
at the foot of the cross justified
and your spirit restored by the river that pours
from our blessed Savior's side

at that wonderful, tragic, mysterious tree
on that beautiful, scandalous night, you and me
were atoned by His blood and forever washed white
on that beautiful scandalous night

Yes, the weather was quite perfect in Charlotte last weekend.

Two bumper stickers I saw lately:
"My God's last name is not damn" and "Keep the earth clean - It's not Uranus."

Oh wow, it's been a long time since I heard that hymn. My brother in law played it for college group about 3-4 years ago. We had the same discussion about why it was set at night. I think we even messed around with the words a bit to make it correct. It's a good hymn. I like it a lot.

And those are great bumper stickers. I particularly like the rehab one :)

i was invited to one of those halloween parties. while it didn't occur to me to go as the 95 theses, i did wear a string brown mullet wig and a shirt that reads, "BUS DRIVER."
