First a question! Does anyone know/is there a way to do a cut in wordpress like livejournal? Because I don’t think it would be appreciated if I posted 30 pictures without a cut.
So I’ll just pick a few from our weekend Seattle trip.
I highly recommend the Underground Tour, it was fascinating and alot of fun.
Like check this out, these little purple glass quares? Are skylights. See next picture…
Now we’re under the street in the original first level of the city.
Underneath the street.
I unintentionally got this guy with the backpack in my picture, but I want to point him out. He had patches all over his backpack from around the world and just looked like one of those people who thoroughly enjoyed being someplace new (which I am assuming he hadn’t been on this tour before). I wonder where he was from.
Seattle’s original water system.
Our favorite part of Pikes Market.
Original Starbucks. We didn’t go in, it was too crowded.
Such a beautiful day.
We drove by the Space Needle to get pictures before we left. Not a bad picture for through the sunroof!
Dang it, this still ended up being fairly long.

Well this wins as the most disgusting and the cleverest thing I’ve seen today.
Today I received a pair of pajama pants in the mail. And they are exactly the right length! I am ridiculously excited about this for good cause, as I have short legs and have more then once tried on petites and been tripping on them. Though it made me wonder, there are probably some not so happy tall girls who ordered the same pants. Hm.

“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.’ That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” –C.S. Lewis
Happy Easter my friends. =)

These are gorgeous. But considering I can all but break my ankle walking in slippers I should stay far far away. But I can admire from afar.

I just skimmed through a free e-novel that landed in my inbox this morning. It was over 70 pages (I read fast.) with this message: Love yourself because you are the most important person in your life.
I scoffed at the message for the first 15 pages or so (I have an issue, I can’t start and not finish something.) This is an unbiblical message! We are born sinners saved by grace, who have done nothing to deserve that grace. What is this nonsense! Then at about page 54 I got thinking. Yes, as a believer I am saved by grace through faith through no actions of my own. But if you think about it, that means I am loved by my savior. Now if Christ loved me and views me worthy of saving, what business do I have thinking down on myself? Instead I should be living in gratitude and joy in my salvation. And that isn’t too many steps away from loving myself. Because Christ first loved me.
