But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility... Eph. 2:13-14

Prayer Request

I'm Instant Messaging with a girl than I met on our mission trips to Mexico. She has a friend that got mixed up in gangs and eventually ended up being sent to military school. Right now he is in the hospital and could very easily die if his sickness isn't cared for properly. My friend was the only christian influence that he had and is having a hard time. She feels that if he dies unsaved it will be her fault for not telling him about Jesus enough. Please pray for him to survive and that the Lord would make him remember what Judith has told him and he would be saved; and that there would be a christian influence in the hospital. His name is Emmet. Also pray for Judith to have peace.

I'm going to give you a list of things that you can do on my blog. Here we go!

1) Posting Comments

Comments are awesome. They let me know that people actually read this thing and if I'm typing anything worth reading. Putting a comment on Droll Digression is easy and encouraged. Here's what you do:

AT the bottom of every post (that's where I'm talking and stuff) there are some links (green words that get underlined when you scroll your mouse over them). One of them will have a number (probably zero) and then the word "comments" click on that link. You will be taken to a screen that is pretty blank, but doesn't have to be intimidating. On the right of the screen is a box that says: "Leave your Comment" - type your comment in here. Then you sign your comment. There are three options:
1. your Blogger display name - if you have a blog on Blogger you can sign with that.
2. Other - way more fun. You can say that your name is King Arthur of Camelot and no one will ever know that it's you.
3. Anonymous - very popular. Listen, it might seem fun and mysterious, but it's WAY over-done. But hey, you can use it.
THEN all you have to do is click the orange button that says: "Publish your Comment", and BOOM! you've made my day!

Also, to the left of the Comment screen you can read other comments left by other readers.

So practice right now. It's not hard, and then you'll know for certain that you CAN do something on the computer. It'll make your day and mine. I can't wait to hear about your experience!

The next thing I'd like to talk about is the Survey.

On the main screen of Droll Digression (you know, where all of the posts are and you can read my title and everything) the first thing to your right that you will see is a survey (currently on pets). Lots of people have already gotten the hang of the Survey (also known as a poll), so I guess there isn't much to say on the subject. Just click your answer and then hit "Vote". I REALLY like it when people do this, because I get to know my reader's better AND I know that someone actually visited my blog.

Some other things you might be interested in are:

THE SAFETY DANCE!!! - Formerly on the side of the main page, this is now a post and can be found in the archives posted in August.

Places I think You'll Like - These are the websites that I like, share, and forget about. They're pretty cool. You should try them

and DUH... About Me - You can learn weird stuff about me - like that I'm paranoid.

There'll also be stuff popping up off and on, such as Next-Door-Neighbor's Cousin's favourite quote.

So anyway, there's lots of things for you to do on here.

OH YEAH! I forgot to mention Search, my Blog Archive and the Lables. These are all things that will help you find what you're looking for on here. To search for a specific word in any and all of my posts, simply go to that grey bar up there at the top of your screen and to the left. Type in the word and hit Enter. It's easy.
BLOG ARCHIVE - This sorts out my posts by date. It works automatically - don't worry.
LABELS - this gives you all of the different catagories I put my posts under, so that you can look up specific subjects that I've talked about in the past.

I guess that's about it. Like I said, keep coming back for more stuff.

Thanks for reading!!!

Light and Dark

Here's a little epiphany I had during Family Bible Reading one night. It was awhile ago, so hopefully I'll get it all down correctly. So here's how my train of thought went:

You don't have to live in the world to know that it's bad, just like you don't have to drink sour milk on a regular basis to know that the sip you just took is sour. But at the same time, seeing what you've been saved from makes your salvation all the more sweet and miraculous, so how do the two fit together?

You can't see the stars during the day, because everything surrounding them is light. But put them up against the night sky and they shine. You can't see a candle's flame in the daylight because there is nothing for it to illumine. But light it in a dark room and it's brilliant.

The longer we stand in light-less dark, the more our eyes become accustomed to it. And the more light hurts. In the darkness, everything is gentle and all imperfections are hidden; but the light is sharp, it hurts our eyes and shows us things we do not want to see.

It also shows us that we're headed off the edge of a cliff.

I hope that all of this is able to be understood. To summarize: a godly life in an ungodly world stands out, and the more time you spend away from God, the harder it is to return.

There's a reason Jesus is called the Light of the world (Jn 8:12). And there's a reason His followers are as well (Mt. 5:14).

This all might be extremely old news for other Christians, and I guess in a way it is for me as well, but sometimes the Lord just shows you things, at least that's how it is with me.

This little light of mine,
I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I'm gonna let it shine;
Let it shine, let it shine,
Let it shine.

Or at least I pray that I am.

Safety Dance!

Sorry that it's not on the side anymore, but this way is less confusing, so everyone should be happy.

The Cat and the Rabbit

This is the first Video I've ever put on YouTube. The Rabbit (Fuzzy Thing) is my sister's and the Cat (Slyder) is mine
