What's happening....

So the semester is finally over and I now am officially on break! I am so excited to be able to do nothing for a few days and then fill my time with the other things that I never have enough time to do during the semester! I did pretty well grade wise this semester; not as well as I had wanted, but not as bad as most people. I ended up with 2 A- s and 2 A s. Oh well, I always do better in the winter semester anyway!

My sister and I were watching a movie the other day on the Hallmark channel called, "A Boyfriend for Christmas". Well, I decided that was something that I'd like for Christmas too and I'm hoping it's not too late to put it on my list! I thought it was a good movie.. especially since the main character's name was Holly. Wow, Holly and she wants a boyfriend for Christmas... it was starting to hit a little too close to home!

I'm still at the same place Christmas shopping as I was earlier this month... except I almost have one Grandma done... I still have no idea what to get the rest of them... I'll have to try and come up with something in the next few days.

In my 100 Day reading through the Bible plan (that I am like 17 days behind in), I read Ezekiel this morning. As I was reading, I was struck by how merciful God was to the Israelites and how they just continuously turned away from Him. Deliberately, not caring about the consequences until they hit, they disobeyed again and again. It also said that even if three righteous men (Daniel and two others that I can't remember off the top of my head), were living in Jerusalem, it wouldn't be enough to save the city or even those men's families. Their righteous living would save themselves but no one else. Reading that just made me think about our country and how people are deliberately choosing to disobey God and turning to other things and people to fill that void. It pains me to even think about it; I can't even begin to imagine the pain God is feeling and at the same time the anger over the blessing and prosperity HE has given to a nation who continually turns her back against Him. This nation needs to be humbled before God, but I'm terrified to even contemplate what it could take to humble this nation before God. God is merciful and slow to anger, but that anger still comes and when it does I fear for the people who have not humbled themselves before God Almighty.
