Life, it just keeps moving ..........

For those of you who have been wondering, Elizabeth is back in school. Again.
In it up to her eyeballs.

I enjoy it, I really do, but I dread it at the same time. I want to get stellar scores, but really don't like cramming a lot of information I won't use into my brain. It also takes a lot of time, time that I would rather spend doing something else.

I really enjoy spending time with Anna, though. She and I have almost the same schedule, so we drive together, spend some of our breaks together, and study together. It is a big change from last semester, when it seemed as if we hardly ever saw one another. And I like it. :-)

Anyway, life just keeps moving. I try to keep up, try to live it as God would have me, ever and only bringing Him glory (with a varying ammount of success).

Yes, I got up for it (a little late to see the complete eclipse, but it was still amazing).

O Praise Him

P2110012, originally uploaded by Lizi Beth.

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
-Thomas Ken

He has been good, so very good.

Whatever is good and perfect comes to us from God, the Creator of all light, and shines forever without change or shadow.
James 1:17

announcing ............

"Ladies and gentlemen, your attention please:
John Smillie has asked Elizabeth Jacobsen to be his wife. She consented (quite gladly, and without hesitation!)."

I think it may be an understatement, but both of us are VERY happy! We are prayerfully considering the future that God has in store for us, and would appreciate your prayers as well.

For more details, including the story of our courtship and John's proposal, please follow this link.

walking by faith, dancing with joy

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. -Psalm 119:105

The LORD God is a sun and shield, He gives grace and glory. No good thing does He withhold from those that walk uprightly. -Psalm 84:11

The Light of the world illumines our lives. He uses His word to guide us step by step, making our way clear with its light, divining truth from error, "light" from "darkness".

... walk in the light as He Himself is in the light. - I John 1:7

The Mark Of A Faithful & Loving Touch

Jacob limped [the] next morning as he went forward, but that limp was because God's hand had touched him. We may have a terrible sorrow which gives us an emotional limp, but it is where God, in His Love and Mercy, has touched us, bringing us a blessing, with a consciousness of God's Presence. God has left in our hearts the mark of His loving Touch.

-Nelson Bell, missionary to China, on the death of his baby son

He who hath led will lead
All through the wilderness
He who hath fed will surely feed ...
He who hath heard the cry
Will never close His ear,
He who hath marked thy faintest sigh Will not forget thy tear.
He loveth always, faileth never,
So rest in Him today - forever.

-Catherine Carmichael, in letter to daughter Amy

quote for today

“There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.”

-Mother Theresa (1910-1997)
founder of the Missionaries of Charity

Psalm 63

A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah.
1 O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.

2 I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.

3 Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.

4 I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.

5 My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

6 On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches of the night.

7 Because you are my help,
I sing in the shadow of your wings.

8 My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.

9 They who seek my life will be destroyed;
they will go down to the depths of the earth.

10 They will be given over to the sword
and become food for jackals.

11 But the king will rejoice in God;
all who swear by God's name will praise him,
while the mouths of liars will be silenced.
