small pieces of joy

pieces of joy in each day


on January 26, 2011

Well, our semiversary (half-anniversary if you will) has come and gone. It’s not really a six month anniversary because anniversary really means to commemorate an event that happened in a previous year. Yes, I am an English NERD. Anyway, a few small things to celebrate this occasion.

ST1: a dance to our wedding song. I wanted to celebrate 6 months of marriage by dancing to our song in the living room. I started the song, “Everything” by Michael Buble, and prepared for the romanticness that would surely come next. It wasn’t nearly as wonderful as our first dance as a married couple, but it was still enjoyable. You can see the dance on my facebook page under videos of me.

ST2: flavored pasta. We got some awesome pastas at a gift exchange on New Years Eve and it has added a lot to our meals recently. The Tomato Basil pasta so far has been the best. I just used some EVOO with some garlic as the sauce and paired it with chicken and it was delicious. Thanks to the awesome people who gave the gift, as well as the people we stole it from during the game 😉

ST3: Teaching religion in school. I got to be the religion teacher for the first time for the past few days and it was so cool. I could talk about God in school and actually TEACH the Bible? What? It was a cool experience and I hope I get to sub in that class again. The kids were for the most part cooperative and very knowledgeable. They were fun but exhausting days.

I’m going to leave you with a great Bible passage I came across today.

“Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Phillipians 4: 6-7

    My favorite bible verse is Ecc. 3:1-8

    Ecclesiastes 3
    A Time for Everything
    1 There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:
    2 a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot,
    3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
    a time to tear down and a time to build,
    4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,
    5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
    6 a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,
    7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,
    8 a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace.

    John 3:8

    The wind blows wherever it wishes. You hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it came from or where it’s going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.
