THE BEREAN TIMES JUNE 30TH 2009
SUMMER HERE WE COME
June has come and gone and we are anxiously waiting for summer to take hold. We have many activities scheduled and a new school year to plan for. We found out that the newest member of the Berean Academy will be a he and that he should join us sometime around the middle of fall quarter. We went to a family reunion/campout and caught up with many of our relatives that we don't see very often, it was a lot of fun.
June was an exciting and fun adventure, with my grandparents moving up to live with us. Father's Day, preparing for the Fourth of July, and my horse camp which is for an entirely different post. My parents and grandparents went down to Cannon Beach, Oregon and had a blast. The 25th was the first day of doing worship with the Harpers which was fun. I have also decided to write another book even though I haven’t finished the first one (he he). I would like to tell you some Confucius sayings... man who run in front of car soon get tired. Confucius says man who run behind car soon get exhausted. A joke is a very serious thing.
Winston Churchill... A man does what he must - in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures - and that is the basis of all human morality.
Winston Churchill... All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.
ODDS AND ENDS
There’s no way little Pipi Quinlan has a sand box big enough for the toy she bought on the Internet without her parents knowing. In May the three year old New Zealand girl woke early and played on her parents computer while they slept. Once on the Internet Pipi somehow managed to buy an excavator on an online auction website. The three year old placed a bid for $15,600.00. Her parents managed to cancel the transaction. excerpted from World Magazine
Your older brothers and sister,
can hardly wait for you,
though we know right now
you're kind of busy,
growing big and strong
in momma`s womb.
Oh boy we want to meet you,
and call you [little brother,
our very own];
We look forward to showing you
all the things that we have been shown.
What will your voice sound like?
and how about that baby grin?
We will have to count your fingers and toes,
to tell you there are ten.
My what stories we can tell you,
when you get old enough;
of your precious momma, brave daddy,and
how they have blessed all of us!
I know the Lord has taught us each something,
that we in turn will share with you.
The Lord is good, His steadfast love
endures forever, and He is faithful
through and through.♥
Recognized perhaps only for his sermon "Sinners in the hands of an angry God",
This seventeenth century theologian has deeply impacted a modern evangelical pastor, and a great author himself, Mr.John Piper. Mr piper has written a book entitled God's
Passion for His Gory. With the first half of the book Piper relays that Edward's
larger works, and namely "The end for which God created the world" impacted his own life, ministry, and walk with God so profoundly that he felt obliged to publish it in the second half of his book, both unabridged and including Edward's own footnotes.
The profound truth that Edward's conveys and Piper eagerly endorses, is that God's passion for His glory is the end for which he created the earth. Also that the happiness of the creature consists in rejoicing in God, by which also God is magnified and exalted, and God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.
