My son was so excited about the party that when I went in to check on him at 5:45 am, he was under his covers fully dressed (the party wasn't until 9:30 am). Not only did Ren gain a new buddy, he experienced his first roller coaster ride at Nickelodeon Universe and had lunch at the Rainforest Cafe.

We find that the chance that any many might have lived down to the present time and fulfilled all eight prophecies is 1 in 10 to the 17th power. That would be 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000. In order to help us comprehend this staggering probability, Stoner illustrates it by supposing we take the same number of silver dollars and lay them on the face of Texas. They will cover all of the state two feet deep. Now mark one of these silver dollars and stir the whole mass thoroughly, all over the state. Blindfold a man and tell him that he can travel as far as he wishes, but he must pick up one silver dollar and say this is the right one. What chance would he have of getting the right one? Just the same chance that the prophets would have had of writing these eight prophecies and having them all come true in any one man, from their day to the present time, providing they wrote them according to their own wisdom.Now these prophecies were either given by inspiration of God or the prophets just wrote them as they thought they should be. In such a case the prophets had just one chance in 100,000,000,000,000,000 of having them come true in any man, but they all came true in Christ. This means that the fulfillment of these eight prophecies alone proves that God inspired the writing of those prophecies to a definiteness which lacks only one chance in 100,000,000,000,000,000 of being absolute.

At least, that's what our culture says.
As for music, having been involved in the local band scene for many years I'd grown accustomed all sorts of creative expression. Dancing, clapping, singing along, swooning, and an occasional squeal of delight were commonplace. I never bat an eye at any of it. That is, until I saw it in church.
Of course, the Bible has a lot to say about praise and worship as well; here are several verses that speak to me:
I will perpetuate your memory through all generations; therefore the nations will praise you for ever and ever. Psalm 45:17
I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. Psalm 63:4
My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you. Psalm 63:5
Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; sing praise to his name, for that is pleasant. Psalm 135:3
Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with tambourine and harp. Psalm 149:3
O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago. Isaiah 25:1
With that being said, try taking a peek at this music video with fresh eyes:

Matt is one of those friends for my hubby. He and his family put many miles on their vehicle to stop by last weekend (I suppose a visit with his mom might have had something to do with it as well). It was wonderful catching up on the ins and outs of life. Though it had been a very long time since our last visit (they even have two beautiful grandchildren now!) - it was as if time stood still for my hubby and his friend.
During our visit, Matt's family kept making reference to The White Book (e.g. "...we'd be lost without The White Book"). My curiousity was piqued and I just had to ask, "What in the world is this white book you keep talking about?"
- A blank calendar page for month of travel (click HERE for a printable version);
- Tabbed divider sheets for 3-ring binder.
It was mighty impressive. And despite its great marketing potential, Matt has graciously allowed me to share it will all of you! Now, that's friendship.
Journaling Ideas: Create a scrapbooking layout regarding one or more of your friendship reunions. A fun way to do so might be to compare and contrast the "then and now" of your relationship. When you first became friends, what were the music and fashion styles of the day? How do they compare to now? Was your friend easygoing or energetic "back in the day"? How does that compare to now? What were your common interests and how do they compare to today? What things have changed about your lives and relationship? What has remained the same?

- You have no will power.
- You're a horrible friend (daughter, wife, mother, sister).
- You're weird.
- That was really stupid.
