Some (almost) completely unrelated things

1) "And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy."

This is part of Peter's speech in Acts 2. The reason I like it so much is the mention of "servants" along with sons and daughters. Because some days, I don't feel like much of a daughter. I'm burdened with my own failures and unworthiness. But God reminds me that through His grace, I am still accepted-- and even the lowest servants in His house share in the glories of the kingdom.

2) My brother Simon got his drivers' license this week, which is slightly terrifying, but only slightly more terrifying than me having my drivers' license. Between us we should keep the traffic police busy.

3) Isn't this print cute? (I suppose its cuteness level goes up the more you like tea.) I really like the stuff Keep Calm Gallery sells . . . just look at this adorably mushy specimen. Someday I'll have a long hallway in which to hang such things.

4) Okay, I found this recipe. It involves chocolate cookie dough and ganache and a freezer. It looks awesome. And I think I should make it very soon. So somebody invite me to a party, and I'll bring these.

5) Birthday! Birthday! Birthday!


  1. WHAT???!!! just when i thought it couldn't get much better. guilty as charged for eating cookie dough from the freezer, but now......well, i may not leave the house for a WEEK!!
