Some Simple Words of Wisdom...

Best thing I've heard all day.
Damon Fairchild (Photography teacher): "If you hear me say 'And that is how you make a clipping mask...' immediately exit HALO.
Today was the Academic Top Seniors Luncheon.
Free food :)
I had to stand up in front while Reddinger talked about my life "Her favorite color is yellow, and she likes long walks on the beach..."
Just kidding haha.
But seriously.
Way awkward. Oh well.
I credit my accomplishment to being a nerd Freshman and Sophomore year.
Math team baby!
Wonderful worship tonight, thanks to Ember Days, Brandon Bee, and Esterlyn.
It made me think of what I read in my quiet time today.

James 3:10
Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be.

Tonight there was praising, but unfortunately, for many of us, there are times of cursing.
This should not be.

1 Peter 3:10
For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit.

James 1:26
If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless.

My religion is not worthless.
If I tame my tongue and am a good example, others will respect me and what I believe.
They are more likely to be receptive.
Keeping your words in check is almost a way of witnessing.

I know sometimes it's funny to let out an F-bomb when telling a joke, or to just let one slip in frustration, but it's just not worth it.
God despises it, so we should too.

After the concert we headed home.
My car started to sound funny so we pulled over at a gas station and Jessi assisted me in topping off my leaking oil.
It seemed to help.
We were offered quite a bit of help too haha
I'm sure it had nothing to do with the fact that two complete babes *wink wink* were having car troubles in their Chevy Camaro.
It couldn't have ;)
Way to go Richland Bombers, domination today, I'm so proud!
