I just wanted to say Thank you so much to Anna, who designed my blog. isn't it lovely?

So a  random person walks up to you and this conversation happens.

Person: You should never step on a crack in the sidewalk. EVER.

You: Umm....why not? And who are you?

Person: Never mind who I am. Once I stepped on a crack on the sidewalk, and the next thing that happened was that a car ran into me.

You: But that doesn't tell me why not to step on a crack in the sidewalk. And who are you?

Person: Just ask any one of these people going by. They will all tell you that it is bad to step on a crack in the sidewalk.

You: Why?

Person: Because it is. the random person dashes off down the sidewalk.

Now was the random person making a logical argument? Comment and tell me what you think, and i'll tell the answer in another post.

So long!

Music in My Ears

Music. Swirling, flowing, laughing. Sobbing, wailing, flying. It's all in there. And you can use music to change your feelings.
For instance, take this girl. Imagine it's a scene, from a movie you have never seen before. I am going to describe the music to you.
The flute takes up the melody first: a soft, gentle melody in a minor key. The strings come next, adding a lower, melancholy undertone. The violin gains strength, adding a sobbing quality to the music....
What did I just describe to you? It wasn't happy, was it? It gave a sense of loneliness and
abandonment to this picture. Now let me describe a different melody, to the same picture.
The strings come first, playing quick, exciting notes in short bursts. There is a little trill on the flute and piccolo every now and again. The music builds, leading up to a grand climax, when the music is fulfilled. All of the instruments are now playing a melody with a sense of wonder. Chimes join in, adding a magical feel to the mix.....
Now that sounded more like the girl was discovering enchanted grove maybe... or something like that. It was a happy feel, exciting, wondrous. Just let me describe one more melody now for you.
The cellos and the double basses begin this, with low, quick repeated notes in a minor key. There is a thunderous roll of the kettle drums every so often. The music gains speed, and the violins join in, playing a tense, quick, melody. Low, chanting voices add to the mix, adding a sense of foreboding....
This melody felt like she was walking into danger, didn't it? Think about this, and tell me any other examples you can think of!
So long!

I'm BAAAAACK! And This Week's Memory Verse

Hi everyone! And I am back! I took a long break over the summer, I'm sorry for neglecting you guys. =P But I will try to consistently post now. =D

Psalm 78: 5-8

He declared statutes for Jacob
 and established the law in Israel,
which He commanded our forefathers to teach their children,
 so the next generation would know them,
even the children yet to be born,
 and they in turn would tell their children.
     Then they would put their trust in God
and would not forget His deeds
but would keep His commands.
     They would not be like their forefathers--
a stubborn and rebellious generation,
     whose hearts were not loyal to God,
whose spirits were not faithful to Him.

Psalm 78: 5-8
