I've been reading Isaiah, and it is a book filled with thanksgiving and praise to God. One of the recent Sunday messages was about prayer, and one point in the message was to remember to thank God when you experience His blessing. I've been trying to grow in this way, and reading Isaiah has helped a lot. I really do have so much to be thankful for, how can I not praise God for it?

Here are the verses that impacted me the most.

"He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of His people He will take away from all the earth." Isaiah 25:8

"You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You." Isaiah 26:3

"The Lord waits to be gracious to you, and therefore He exalts Himself to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for Him." Isaiah 30:18

"In love You have delivered my life from the pit of destruction, for You have cast all my sins behind Your back." Isaiah 38:17

"The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever." Isaiah 40:8

"Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; His understanding is unsearchable." Isaiah 40:28

"Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

"[The Lord] gives power to the faint; and to him who has no might He increases strength." Isaiah 40:29

God is so amazingly good to us! :) We must not forget to praise Him for all He has done, and continues to do, for us.

CrossWay, my second home

The weather was perfect today for taking pictures, so after church I took a few of our church building.

I just love my church family! :)

A few posts ago, I said my back and shoulders were really hurting. Well, I took my aunt's advice and started stretching. Now the pain is almost completely gone. Praise the Lord, stretching works! :) Thanks Aunt Marie!

So yesterday at work we had a Labor Day Giveaway. All the Chick-fil-A's did it. If a customer came in wearing any sports team logo, they got a free chicken sandwich. Man, were we ever busy! There was pretty much a constant stream of people all day, and all the CFA workers were running trying to get everything done. It was crazy! But at least the time went by faster than usual.

Right now I feel like I'm being torn between Mission28 and Quest222. I have lots of new friends in M28 that I love hanging out with, and I want to get to know them better. But I don't want to stop hanging out with the friends I already have in Q222, or we might become distant friends. And it's hard deciding at church who to talk with, 'cause my M28 and Q222 friends are both there. I don't want either group of friends to feel I'm ignoring them. *sigh* Life can be so hard sometimes.

My CPCC class is so much fun! I love ASL, it's such a beautiful language. And my teacher is really funny. Today he showed us the videophone, very similar to Skype, which the Deaf use to communicate with each other. It's really cool. :)
I took some pictures on campus, in case you want to see what it looks like. The sky was so pretty today!
