Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @
lowercase letters
It's been forever since I've done one of these, but I think it's time to pick it up again!

{one} Can I just say that I am suddenly awful at taking pictures? I'm supposed to be a blogger and a scrapbooker! Since August, I've taken pictures of my Sunday School class, one of Desmond's football games, and of my "new" room- FAIL. I mean, I've taken a few "twitter pictures" with my phone, but Girl has got to get better with this. Project Life went down hill by March, so I've got to find some way to document my life. Any ideas?
Picture that my MOM took the other night during Family Movie Night!
{two} I'm SO ready for this semester to be over. I really don't want to write all of these term papers. Today, I'm attempting to tackle Biblical Womanhood for my C.S. Lewis class. I think I've reached the conclusion that it's not all about the womanhood- it's about being the person that God created us to be. "Biblical Personhood" as my dear friend Annie put it in a comment on the blog a little while back. Each of us have different roles for the kingdom- it's how we were created- but in the end, it's about both of us sacrificing our wants for another person's needs. John Piper puts it like so:
Biblical headship for the husband is the divine calling to take primary responsibility for Christlike, servant-leadership, protection and provision in the home. Biblical submission for the wife is the divine calling to honor and affirm her husband’s leadership and help carry it through according to her gifts. (Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood)
That's deep. Chew on it for a bit and get back to me.

{three} I've still got to work on the final draft of my exegesis paper (it's on fear and the like) and write a term paper on hell. (Okay, so it's more on how an all loving, all powerful God could send people to Hell). It's based kind of as a response to Rob Bell and the like, but more just as a response to my theology teacher. I'm building upon a paper that I posted here called "Love Wins...or Not?" and if you wanted to look over that and tell me what's confusing/what you love/what you can email me (address on the sidebar). Or you can just read it and gain some wisdom from my vast theological knowledge (haha. very funny Lauren).

{four} I wanted to end on an even number since I like those better (other than the number seven. I know, I'm weird). I don't really have another point, but since this is miscellany monday, I figured that I can be miscellaneous and do that. Off to work on that paper now. After I get a diet coke and a study snack, of course. Procrastination at its finest.

  1. oh, girl. i've been awful with taking pictures, too. in high school i used to be the girl who you could absolutely rely on to have pictures of everything. where is she now?!

    wait. me, annie? i don't remember saying that, haha. and then i started looking through your posts to find where you talked about biblical womanhood so i could see if it was me and this is what i came up with. i'm thinking of posting on biblical hood soon.

    i'll look over your paper this weekend! both because you asked and because i wouldn't mind rereading it anyway.

    i think it's hilarious how so many people love the number seven. i like it, too!
