Birthdays, School and Matters of Importance

Hello? Is anyone there? Even if there isn’t, there are a few things I want to say.

First: Today is my birthday, complete with snow storms, high winds and the return of Mr. Bean from a trip for work. We’re going to go eat gluten-free pizza for dinner and I am terribly excited.

Second: I am ALMOST done school. I have a 30 minute presentation + 15 minutes for questions at 11:30 tomorrow morning that is essentially a defence of our design project. Then I will officially be and EIT (Engineer – in – training.) I have almost scaled the mountain that seemed impossible last September and I’ve learned a lot along the way.

Third: I going on a well deserved vacation in less than a week and I’m very grateful that the volcano has stopped spewing out ash as we’re going across the pond! I have been looking forward to it since we booked in last January.

Fourth: If you haven’t seen any of the parody videos by The Key of Awesome, you are missing out. I’ve been on a listening to Lady Gaga kick lately, so it seems appropriate to share the parody of telephone:

What’s something exciting that’s happening in your life right now?

Good Friday

Today, over two thousand years ago, my Savior died on the cross for the forgiveness of my sins and the sins of the world (John 1:29). He did it so that we could be reconciled to God and have a relationship with Him (2 Corinthians 5:17-21). Through this, we live us Grace, not Law (Romans 6:14).

The verse that speaks to me the most is:

The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. Mark 15:38

because Jesus died so that we could have a direct relationship with Him and the Father, that God is available to and for everyone with no intermediary and that He will be with us always.

Have a blessed Good Friday.
